"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 most will be spilled. A relationship 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."

So true, somewhere down the line we start believing that we can imbibe the sand in our palm, and be one forever. Our quest for this impossible dream makes us so self centered that we forget the pain we are causing to them and thus lose the most revered relationships.
