The Friday Morning 42: Relationship

Welcome to The Friday Morning No.42! Today, we have the pleasure of delving into the fascinating world of relationships with Ms. Annie Vu, the accomplished Co-founder and CEO of Tubudd. Through her extensive research and experience, Annie sheds light on the profound impact of relationships on our well-being. Let's embark on a journey of understanding and appreciation for the importance of nurturing relationships in our lives.

1. Research on Relationships

One of the longest-standing research studies, spanning four generations of directors, reveals that married individuals tend to live longer, irrespective of the quality of their marriage. Furthermore, those who maintain strong relationships with those around them also enjoy significantly increased longevity. This highlights the profound impact that relationships have on our overall well-being and underscores the importance of investing in meaningful connections.

2. The pandemic of men in relationship

Men, in particular, have faced a phenomenon known as the "lonely man" syndrome, where there is an imbalance in the gender ratio worldwide, with fewer women than men. Additionally, the rise of dating apps has altered the dynamics of relationships, leading to a decrease in the desire for long-term commitments and the development of marital love.

3. The pandemic of women in relationship

The rise of the "tall girl" phenomenon signifies an intriguing shift in societal expectations and preferences for women when it comes to relationships and marriage. Traditionally, societal norms often revolved around women seeking partners who were financially stable, reliable, and able to provide for the family. However, in recent times, there has been a noticeable change in the criteria that women consider important when choosing a life partner.

In contemporary society, many women have developed higher standards and expectations for their potential partners. This shift can be attributed to several factors, including increased gender equality, educational opportunities, and the pursuit of personal and professional fulfillment. Women are now seeking partners who not only meet their basic needs but also align with their personal values, aspirations, and ambitions. As a result, there has been a delay in marriage and settling down among some women as they strive to find a partner who meets their elevated expectations.

4. The Three Pillars of Happiness by Dr. Chatterjee

Dr. Chatterjee, a renowned expert in well-being, emphasizes three core pillars of happiness: alignment, contentment, and control. Building and nurturing strong relationships can significantly contribute to these pillars, allowing individuals to experience a greater sense of happiness and fulfillment in their lives.

5. The Ikigai Concept of Japanese Culture

The Japanese concept of "ikigai" provides further insight into the importance of relationships. Ikigai refers to the reason for being, the intersection of passion, mission, vocation, and profession. Building meaningful relationships and fostering connections with others is often seen as a central aspect of one's ikigai, contributing to a sense of purpose and fulfillment.
