We all need that one person in our lives who sometimes drops knowledge so big that you have no choice but to re - evaluate your life or even change it completely. I have one of those and here's some knowledge he dropped...

The relationships that are best for us are the ones where we only give things we can afford to lose. If you can afford to lose that thing be it your point of view or your time, there is no fear of losing that person and ultimately you will not lose them from your life as a result of trying to hold on so tightly to them.

The people we struggle to let go of are those who have our most treasured possessions. Our pride, our respect, our confidence or our hearts. If they leave with that, we are left depleted and so we hold on to them for dear life.

He is my surrogate. We need each other because life has disillusioned us yet we still stand and believe in love. It's a relief to know this, but it makes me want to hold on to him. but holding on is how we lose people because that clasp often turns into a cage in which we trap those we love.

You wanna hold on to someone? Then let them go. Don't smother them. They will run. Give them only what you can afford to lose and they will stay...
