Well, your heart was and still is in the right place. So I want to tell you what you did was enough. You are enough. On a different day, the results would likely be different.
Know that through our shared belief, we are indeed friends. And as your friend, I want you to know that I appreciate what you do. Don't let people discourage you. Continue to show love. Try again tomorrow and the day after that and so on because nobody can diminish a genius of love.
