...thats really not how birds work. if you hold them with care, they'll hang out for a bit, and then they'll fly away again....because they get hungry, tired, or because they stopped caring. they're like cats that way.
"If you love something let it go. If it comes back to you it's yours" If you love someone give them all the freedom they want. If they choose to stay with you it's because they love you, not because you are holding on to them.
The Simile is philosophical! Of course, every friendship is like an untamed bird. For the silliest reason we may lose it. The reason you know? Human being is absolutely an egocentric creation! So, however careful you be, one day the bird is destined to elude your grip!
i agree.... John and the others its jst a comparison. If u dnt give yr partner space they will feel imprissoned bt if u never minded abt your partner u will loose them, and the outcome of a relationship is what you make of it. What u put in is what u get out... So grow up and see the bigger picture.......
