Values in Human-Human Relationship

No individual or nation can live by holding itself apart from the community of others, and whenever such an attempt has been made under false ideas of greatness, policy, or holiness – the result has always been disastrous to the secluding one.

There are certain basic and important values in maintaining relationships. These values, we all know, are the backbone of health and happy family relations. The feelings, emotions, sentiments, and respect all are of real importance. These values lead to the elimination of friction and the establishment of total harmony in relationships on a long-term basis. Values that are important in any relationship are:

 1. Trust 6. Reverence
 2. Respect 7. Glory
 3. Affection 8. Gratitude
 4. Care 9. Love
 5. Guidance  

The above-mentioned values are the core of all relations. One has to follow all to gain on the day-to-day problems. These values are intrinsic and available in every person. We need to find out in ourselves and implement. Without implementation, one can not think of strong family relation.

1. Trust (Vishwas)

“To be assured that each human being inherently wants oneself and the other to be happy and prosperous.”

2. Respect (Samman)

“Respect means right evaluation, to be evaluated as I am.”

3. Affection (Sneh)

“Affection is the feeling of being related to the other.”

4. Care (Mamta)

“The feeling of care is the feeling to nurture and protect the body of our relative.”

5. Guidance (Vatsalya)

“The feeling of ensuring right understanding and feelings in the other (my relative) is called guidance.”

6. Reverence (Shraddha)

“The feeling of acceptance of excellence in the other is called reverence.”

7. Glory (Gaurav)

“Glory is the feeling for someone who has made efforts for excellence.”

8. Gratitude (Kritagyata)

“Gratitude is the feeling of acceptance for those who have made efforts for my excellence.”

9. Love (Prem)

“Love is the emotion of strong affection and personal attachment. In other words, love is a feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child, or friend.”
