My heart is still capable of loving. My heart that has been broken by someone but had failed to take away the tenderness

The People We Love
We must never assume that we know the people we love better than they know themselves, or that, even when we believe that our wisdom is superior to theirs, we have the right to manipulate them to do what we want them to do. This means that we have to keep to ourselves our anxieties when we see the mistakes they make, and we refrain from making them feel guilty just so we can keep them near us and enjoy their company. We love them because they are who they are. And we always wish them well on their future, even when that future does not include us.
