> I once had a friend who grew to be very close to me.
> Once when we were

> “You see this water carefully contained on my hand?
> It symbolizes Love.”
> This was how I saw it: As long as you keep your hand

> However, if you attempt to

> This is the greatest mistake that people do when

> like the water spilling
> out of your hand, love will retrieve from you .
> For love is meant to be free, you cannot change its

> Give and don’t expect.
> Advise, but don’t order.
> Ask, but never demand.
> It might sound simple, but it is a lesson that may
