RELATIONSHIPS
 
Relationships — of all kinds — are like sand held in your hand. Held loosely, with an open hand the sand remains where it is. The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers. You may hold onto some of it, but mostly it will be spilled. A relationships is like that. Held loosely, with respect and freedom for the other person, it is likely to remain intact. But hold too tightly, too possessively, and the relationship slips away and is lost.
— Kahlil Jamison
 
This is such a truthful statement. A prime example of this is my friend who committed suicide. Her parents were very strict with her. They wouldnt let her see any of her friends on the holidays or days off, she never got the privacy she deserved, she wasnt allowed on the telephone for more than half an hour at a time, and she wasnt allowed to talk to boys. Her parents got too much for her to handle so she decided that she wanted to die. She never gave a warning. She only complained of how much it sucked to be her. If we are afraid of losing the ones we love and we hold on to them too tightly, chances are we have already lost them.

LOVE
 
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt within the heart.
Helen Keller

I believe that no single person can ever truly know what love is until they have spent a lifetime with one person. And even then a lifetime is not nearly enough time to know everything about each other. People who are cynical about love will never change their opinion on it. They believe there is no hope for them and because of this they will never be happy with just one person. People who embrace love and are open to chance will find great happiness and contentment with themselves and others.

 


I showed you my face... but that was never enough for you, so I left you with my bleeding heart.
