Yes, we never know what we got unless we lose them. Try this, if you want to get the meaning of any relationship, try not to have a contact with them. In the end, you will realize the importance of the relationship and how deep is their meaning to you.A momentarily silence sometimes teach us about meaning.
Personally, when I do things, or commit to do things, I try to get to know its meaning. Meaning is very importance for me. It’s in my glass, in shirt I wear, in the type of shoes I put on today, what kind of people I get along, what I learn, what I calculate…there’s always a meaning in almost every single thing, in every phase of my life, and also a purpose.
