Building any structure requires a strong base, all relationships and friendships require that strong base of open communication, freedom of expression and unconditional love.

We always want to hold on to people or places or things with which we feel a strong inexplicable connection to. Sometimes this connection is natural and built in a short period of time.

Sometimes, the connection is built over time with equal contribution from both sides, therefore we feel closest to our school and school friends because we have spent the maximum time with them and built on many memories and instances of love and care.

Same way in many companies, new entrants are encouraged to participate in team build exercises. These team building exercises are promoted through games and sports. This is a great way to understand the strength, weaknesses and characters of the participants. Whether new or old employees, both interact in an open format, to strategize and plan. Likewise a building metaphor can be used in our love too. As nothing happens in one go, everything takes it time to grow and blossom. We like a person, like their qualities and then we love the person. Even when it is ‘Love at first sight’, there is a process of knowing the person, and building a life and relationship together.
