Ice- Once touched, the sensation of it only last for a short period of time. If held too long, whatever touches it most of the time becomes numb or the ice will fade before.
Fire- When touched, the sensation is unforgettable. Most of the time it leaves a mark to remind you how it felt, but if you stay there too long, whatever touches it will either withers away or loses it’s value.
I came up with this conclusion after finding myself in a very awkward position in my close relationships. There seemed to be a pattern. Of course, being human, fire is always going to be more enticing because it’s exciting, you can become mesmerized by its beauty, and, moreover, it’s untouchable. You never really think twice about ice because it’s only there for that brief time, or what you just needed at the moment. Whether we want to admit it or not, as humans, we use other humans to get what we want or need. You can come up with your own many examples. Being newly single, I have had to cling more to God and what he wants me to do. I have found that depending on people to give you what you want or need, or what you think you want or need, can never be fully fulfilled because they are human just like you.
