Relationships Are The Real Riches

Who am I, really?
As I think of the defining moments in my life,
I realize that I can never fully define myself except in relationships with others.
One person leaves my life
and my life is never the same again.
Another person comes
and my life is richer for it.
People come and go
– some fleeting, others lingering
and still others staying for a good while.
And because of my encounter with them,
I am never the same person
I was before I met them.

Sometimes, my life seems like a tangled web of interconnected relationships.
At other times, it is a rich tapestry of bright, beautiful and colorful relations.
The currency of relationships is not money nor material goods
but the time we spend and invest in such relationships.
I see people who have so much money and material possessions
that they don’t have time for others.
These people have very sad and sorry relationships.
There are others I know who are detached from money and material goods,
they can easily find the time to spend with others.
These people have happy relationships.
