The message on whatsapp followed by the prayer hands emoji cracked me up. There is a certain lightness to the friendship with this person because it is still in its early stages, unadulterated by expectations, judgments and a sense of entitlement. As a result, there is enough space for each of us to just be.
How nice would it be if I extended the same lightness to relationships that are close to my heart?! Isn’t that the ultimate gift that one can give to a person that is close to one’s heart – the freedom to be who they are, no strings attached!
