Each of us longs for closeness, warmth and security. Everyone seeks hearing and understanding in their lives. In the ever faster changing times, people are looking for values that last. If many things no longer seem reliable in everyday life, it is good to be able to rely on a relationship with a person (couple relationship), on a family and on "one" real friend. For this, however, it is necessary to cultivate relations with the aforementioned environment.
