    cultivate our relationships


    I've got a problem with the following phrase:

    Can we say that we 'cultivate our relationships' or we should say we 'take care of our relationships'?

    For example, in: 'I think one of the most imprtant aspects of life is cultivating our relationships.'

    Thank you,

    Re: cultivate our relationships

    Either one will work. "Cultivate" tends to mean grow something. "Taking care of" tends to mean maintain something.
    Growing flowers and maintaining flowers are different concepts.
