Reliability is a crucial word in our day-to-day lives, for we need people to rely on for any task - physical, mental, or emotional.

Our entire ecosystem, as a matter of fact, relies on other beings. It is quite fascinating that even after existing individually, we are not really single beings.

Without a reliable person around us, walking through life will be quite difficult. Not only this but also when we are struck with hurdles, we need a reliable friend who can be there for us during tough times. Many visionaries have spoken on this and let us go through some of them.
