Maintaining Relationships If we do not know how to relate to ourselves, how can we relate to each other and build the relationships which fulfil our emotional needs and enrich our lives, either at work or at home? Communications are the basis of all relationships and the effectiveness of communications decides the quality and cohesiveness of the relationship. The relationships we all have with each other create small social groups, which collect to form the larger group we call society. Thus if we all improve our own relationship with ourselves, then with each other, we then have the potential to build a better society.
