We live in a challenging world and have learned how to travel to the moon and project satellites around mars. Nevertheless we frequently have difficulty reaching someone in the same room we live in fast moving, push button space age, yet we find people are the center of the world and its values. The rocks, the stars and moon are important, but human are more important. Hence we have to contribute to strengthen humanity and justice in order to get this world a peaceful and better place to be lived for all people. Today human beings have made great progress in science and technology however; human relationships have deteriorated considerably. People do not have much trust for each other now days.
Unfortunately, People are forgetting what their basic needs are and what matters the most. In addition, which are fundamentals to maintain a peaceful society, Nevertheless, running behind what not matters much? Today we have social networks ruining personal interaction. Love ones being neglected and disrespected. What happened to values, love, interaction without cell phone distractions? Common politeness is needed in all aspects of connections. Put down the phone, turn off the computer allow someone personal quality time.
In recent era we are providing importance to modern technology rather human relationship. Due to this social stability is threatened which is one of the hurdles to achieve healthy social life. Social stability is very important to maintain peace in society. In addition; it helps the society to progress. We may enjoy online relationships using social media sites like Facebook or Twitter, but there is difference between these kinds of interactions and interactions with people in the physical world. The modern technology may help us to have fast and quick communication nevertheless; it does not help us to remove our depression which really social relationships can. Social relationship can make our bonding stronger. Through social relationship the trust is developed which is a beautiful feeling everyone wants to have. Since, the person who does not trust anyone ,he/she can’t share her/his sadness or depressed feeling which is too dangerous for someone healthy life that he/she will be victimized by depression, anxiety and others mental abnormalities. In addition, those people can’t perform their social functioning normally which is a direct threat to healthy social life as well society. Furthermore, for society to survive, individuals must function as interdependent units, each carrying out the full range of his or her roles and responsibilities.

Then these social, emotional, and psychological problems prevent the development of healthy social life.
Every member of society has a number of social positions or statuses that go with specified roles, and if a member fails to perform his/her roles effectively then social stability is exposed. For instance, at same time someone is son of his parents, brother of his siblings, student of his teachers or employ of his organization, member of any society, friend of his friend and so many other positions at the same time, relationship is the only tool which helps the individual to make balance in these roles and perform his social functioning successfully and assists him to attain satisfying standards of life. We can have best and standard life, our skills, knowledge are enhanced, capacities are developed people can met those social, economic, educational, and health needs which are fundamental to the maintenance of society, merely can be achieved through strong social relationship with the people of any society. A society which contains good social relationship among its people then everyone is awake of his roles and responsibilities, which surely leads to have peaceful and standards social life.
