Human beings constantly make and break relationships. Unfortunately, relationships can make and break human beings too. No one cherishes slavery, but many of us have enslaved ourselves to our relationships. As the relationship goes through its highs and lows, we get caught in the wake, and bounce back and forth between happiness and dejection. And sadly, the lows seem to come too often and the highs seem to pass too soon.
Despite this, human beings yearn for relationships. Even a broken heart - scarred by love lost - pursues and rejoices in love again. But as time marches past, the euphoria of the new is cast aside by the tedium of the old. The very relationships we once coveted, suffocate us and we seek escape. Lovers quarrel, parents and children grow weary of each other, and friendships run out of steam. So the old is discarded, but then once again the quest for the new begins afresh. Relationships! We can't live with them, we can't live without them..
