When we make spending time with the people we care about a vital item on our personal agendas, we make certain that friendships and love relationships remain an important part of our lives. When we are busiest, we often cease socializing, citing the significance of our many duties as the reason for our isolation. Yet our loved ones represent a source of happiness, support, and comfort unlike any other. They help us maintain our internal equilibrium by inspiring us to focus on what is outside of ourselves and separate from our own interests. However, the connections we share with others cannot exist in a vacuum. They must be nurtured by our caring attention. The time you spend with your loved ones today will remind you of the wonderful roles they play in your life.
