When it comes to the definition of a good relationship with neighbors, the bible talks about the parable of the Good Samaritan. Furthermore, two of the 10 commandments deal with neighbor relationships. We cannot choose our neighbors. Since they live near us, we cannot help seeing them often. If we do not aim to be a good neighbor, we might end up living in misery which is not a good thing at all. Imagine not being on good terms with the people next door. It will make you spend much of your energy thinking about them. Hence, it can adversely affect your mind, said Elizabeth Stokoe, a professor of Social Interaction at Loughborough University. Having an abusive, noisy and disrespectful neighbor can be stressful. You will dread knocks at your door or would not like it if you spot them nearby.
