Losing a loved one is too painful. When a loved one dies, you feel like sifting through the sands of time to find a handful of grains to hold. These grains you seek so that you can always be connected to that person. Striving to survive after a loved one’s death can be very difficult and this is why people seek some remembrance objects to remember that person by. What is gone, is gone, there is no way you can get that person back and how much ever you may wish to die with your loved one, it cannot happen.

People come and go in our lives, It is the leaving behind of our loved ones that becomes too painful for us. We cannot bear to depart from them. Be it our siblings crossing the continents, or ourselves travelling away from our loved ones, all we can think of is to gather as many memories as possible and to take them with us. It is not possible, even if we wanted to steal away moments remains as it is and we are to leave them behind!

Things to do to strengthen your bond!

There are a lot of different ways to strengthen our relationship with our loved ones. Relationships are always a two way street and require input from both the parties. Here are some simple ideas to help strengthen your relationship with your loved ones.

1. Cherish your “Me” time and respect your loved ones’ “Me” time

People have a tendency to feel that they need to know each and everything about their loved ones. The events, whatever the person is feeling and every other personal detail. In this whole process we end up pushing that person away from us. It is indeed your right to know what is going on in your loved one’s life, but let that person communicate it to you when he feels he wants to. Also, it is not just about your loved one’s privacy, but it is about yours too. You need to have private time to your own self respecting each other’s privacy will help you maintain a happy and strong relationship.

2. Have keepsakes of each other

This is the one of the fastest growing trends. Who does not want to feel that their loved one is always close to them? Now you can use the ashes of the deceased loved one or a strand of hair (whether living or dead) and have it turned into a precious stone like diamond. Diamonds are forever, therefore this is the one of the best way to keep your loved one close to you forever and at all times. You can find more information about creating a cremation diamond of your loved one as a sign of close relationship here.

3. During arguments remain calm

A very difficult yet very important task. You need to manage your anger. Nothing hurts more than harsh words. And vice versa, a person always regrets the words uttered by him in anger. The best possible way is to avoid such situations. Try to remain calm in an argument doing this will help keep your relationships healthy.
