Relationships--of all kinds--are like sand held in your hand.
Held loosely, with an open hand, the sand remains where it is.
The minte you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles
through your fingers. You may hold on to some of it, but most will be spilled.
A relationship is like that. Held loosely, with respect, and freedom from the other
it is likely to remain intact. But hold on too tightly, too possessively, and the
relationship slips away and is lost.
