There are relationships where we didn't cross a month of knowing each other, there will be a feeling of having long years of love and friendship. Those were the Unconditional love in life like a precious stone found in the ocean.  When we thought of keeping the relationship long-lasting, there will be the most painful waiting in life to distancing away from the person who showered Unconditional love.  But the separation will truly realize the importance of having true love and relationship in life. Separation is inevitable for any form of relationship.
