When you protect yourself from pain, be sure you do not protect yourself from love.
A friend is someone who can see the truth and pain in you even when you are fooling everyone else.
I cut myself in the finger, and it pains me: this finger is a part of me. I see a friend hurt, and it hurts me, too: my friend and I are one.
If we deny the love that is given to us, we refuse to give love because we fear pain or loss, then our lives will be empty, our loss greater.
If you love her, never fill her ears with lies, her mouth with words, her eyes with tears, her mind with confusion and her heart with pain.
