That feeling you get when you hug someone and you just don't want to let go is incredible, and it can be so strong that you get chills. Life is short and joy can be fleeting so when you care about someone it is natural to want to hold on as long as possible. A hug can be comforting or it can be filled with passion, but it always means that you care and want to hold on as long as possible. A hug can bring happiness and joy to even the darkest hours, keeping hope alive when all seems lost. When you hug someone that you care about the simple touch can be balm to a troubled soul, soothing anger and helping you focus on what is really important in this life.
