Love is not clipping wings, fly.

We often confuse love with possession. Unlike our pets, humans weren’t meant to be kept on leashes. They weren’t meant to be neutered and spayed. Their wings weren’t meant to be clipped for the sake of your possession. When you love someone, you love them unconditionally. You love them not under the condition they’ll be here forever but rather that they chose to be here, for a moment or a lifetime, even though they could have flown anywhere.

P.S. One day these one minute writings will be a big book called “One Minute, Please.” Can I let you know when that day comes? You can say yes, here.
