If you’re holding on tight to someone, please please let your grasp weaken a bit. In fact, let them go.
If you love someone, let them go. If they return to you, it was meant to be. If they don’t, their love was never yours to begin with.
… If they don’t come back it’ll be hard, and it’ll nearly break you to pieces, but it’s better than strangling that which you say you love.
Afterall, there comes a point where holding them close turns into suffocation.
