Look at this butterfly, so beautiful, so delicate.
I can enjoy this butterfly from a distance,
but if I touched her, she would die.

even away from the attentions of those
with whom they are most bonded.

Real love is never a selfish emotion.
If you want something from someone -
especially if that something is sex -
what you are feeling is not true love.

and not about seeking happiness for yourself.

is the greatest gift we can give to a person we love.
Nonetheless, the litmus test of love is knowing
we would choose never to see that person again
if we believed that distance would bring them greater happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

thinking of enslaving the other person.

While it is natural to feel some degree of

is a sign of low self-esteem,
and in severe cases, a condition termed co-dependency.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

It is unlikely that they are intentionally aggravating you.

Your relationship will become stronger and happier if you do.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

A dream you dream alone is only a dream.
A dream you dream together becomes reality.

love that has grown cold can kindle
- Soren Kierkegaard

Our loved ones -
whether by blood, by marriage, or by choice -
are delicate treasures.
If we hold them too close, they break -

Have the courage to trust that
the beautiful butterflies of your life
will return - or not - as life intends.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Move on and let go.
Life can be joyful and rewarding again.
