The Paradoxes of Our Lives - The Thing We Want Badly, We Lose

The more we want to hold on to something badly, the more we lose it.

As we lose water in our palm when we close our fist around it, as we smother a sapling when we over-nurture it, as we suffocate anything that we hold too close.

It is a great tragedy - to kill that we love the most.

Or do we? Love cannot be anything more than seeing the best happen for the other person. In this case, it's worth asking - what is it we want.
