some people have an instant connection with each other from the second they meet. others need to take some time to establish that connection. and some simply cannot reach that level of understanding and camaraderie, whether it stems from a lack of fate, or a lack of effort.

i believe that people everywhere, of all ages, of any skin colour, of any gender can connect. it's a matter of whether they want to.

we are connected in so many different ways. with lovers, with friends, with family, with workmates. every connection is different, yet so similar. every good connection is built on good communication - listening more than talking.

who was it who said something about humans being given two ears and one mouth, and thus should listen more than they speak?

i think it makes a fuckload of sense.

that said, communication should not require alot of effort. if you are naturally interested in someone, you will naturally want to know more about this person, or hear what this person has to say. this goes the same for any friendship. if this basic level of communication is not present, then it is an indication of an inevitable lack of genuine interest.

which, nobody can do anything about.

I think it was Confucius who said that or something similar along that line.

Unfortunately in most friendships, communication breakdowns are common and that friendship slowly dissolves. And in a way though both parties are involved, as you said, it is something that nobody can do anything about, at least not conciously.

yes, a broken connection takes both parties to mend or build. oh well, i know i've done my best.
