"Education is not a preparation for life; Education is life itself."
- Elbert Hubbard

*A moment of inspiration emerged in, of all places, the bathroom. I was taking my shower, and I looked down at...the red/blue taps. It was then that I suddenly had a thought. A brief moment of inspiration.

Having relationships or friendships is like taking a shower. There is the red tap that symbolises red, hot passion. There is the blue tap that represent the blue, cold days in our lives. We balance both taps to attain the right temperature.

If you have a conflict, you turn cold. It is up to you how you wanna keep the warmth. You can choose to turn up the heat, but it will mean giving more, and taking longer. Furthermore, the cold is still there. It's just being overshadowed by the warmth, for now. Do you have such patience?

Alternatively, you can turn off the cold. It is faster, no doubt, but how many of us can do that? To forgive and forget? It's always best to balance both, but we can't always be that successful. Sometimes, we just have to accept that, after trying our best, there are still times when some things are beyond our control.

This is just beautiful. Heh..
