T - 5 Ts of Togetherness...

Love is not easy. It involves a lot of effort. Irrespective of whether love has been around for 2 months or 20 years, whether the object of your affection is your child, partner, parent or friend - the effort needs to be renewed every single day. If being together with your loved one for an entire lifetime is your idea of love, then read on to know the 5 Ts that form the frame for togetherness.  

Trust –

Easily, trust forms the basis of all relationships. When someone places their complete trust on you, it’s their way of telling you that they feel safe and happy with you and are confident of turning to you when in need and know that they will not be disappointed. Don’t break the trust they have placed in you. Honour your commitments. If you have promised them something, keep it up, no matter how difficult it is, or else, don’t promise. If they have entrusted you with their secrets, with their issues, with their ambitions, guard them in your heart.

Truth –

Truth and trust are like two sides of the same coin. People trust those who are truthful. The moment you start having secrets that you cannot share, when you have to lie, be dishonest or cheat, be sure that the truth though hidden for some time will soon come out and the trust will be broken.

Time –

Togetherness demands your time. Isn’t ‘time’ the best gift you can give to your one? Agreed, in today’s fast-paced world, everyone is busy, there’s so much to do, and there’s hardly any time. But like it is said, ‘It is not about having time, it’s about making time.’ So, make time to be there for people you love.

Talk and touch –

Communication is such an important part of being together – both physical and oral communication. Most misunderstandings happen because people don’t talk, they don’t express themselves properly. People assume and presume, accuse and scream, and do everything but talk! Most issues would be solved simply if people communicated. And don’t forget to look into their eyes when you talk.

Touch is an important way to show love. Hug, hold hands, kiss. Make your loved ones feel loved.  

Tenderness -

As time passes, we tend to take people in our lives for granted. We expect more, we are disappointed more, we fight more and we hurt more. We forget that human hearts are as fragile as glass. Hence treat the people you love, like you would handle glass – with tenderness. Speak softly, act responsibly, behave gentlemanly and love endlessly, so with the adult, as with a child.  

What would you like to add to the list?


  1. Agreed with all your points. It's surprising how easy it is for us, as humans, to take love for granted, for sameness and routine to settle in, and when it does, we complain, instead of working to correct it.

  2. Loved your choice of word for T buddy ~ togetherness and all that you stated to get it is true to the vote yet we loose it sometimes over silly mistakes and misunderstandings. I find community communication most vital .

  3. I like all the T words you included as subtitles today, very clever. But I don't agree with the first statement. I think love is easy.

  4. Perfectly written, Princess. Especially the last point.
    I would add one more thing, though it doesn't start with 'T'. And that's "fun". Having fun together is very important for me to remain together with a person.

  5. This is a beautiful post, Shubhangi.
    Such simple points, which somehow slip away unnoticed between the chores of day to day life. We need these reminders occasionally.

  6. Agree with all the Ts of togetherness. I remember reading somewhere the 3 Cs that help relationships and they are Care Connect Character.

  7. Well summarised. All your 5 Ts are of utmost importance for togetherness.
