It does not have to be done alone.
Elayne Trakand was destined to fall in love with Rand. Elayne is the "Daughter-Heir of Andor" and so by definition, a princess. She grew up in a palace and is very well educated. Elayne helps Rand make decisions on simple matters such as manners, what to wear, and how to address certain people. She shows her understanding of how to dress for certain affairs by saying, "First impressions are important, you don't want to walk into a gathering of nobles dressed like a farm boy."(Fires of Heaven)
Egwene is short-tempered due to the fact that she grew up with Rand and has seen him change from farm boy to king. Often times Egwene ends up yelling things like "you are a wool headed fool Al'thor!" Despite her temper Egwene wants what is best for Rand and is willing to "help Rand carry this burden whether he wants me to or not."(Fires of Heaven)
Moiraine came to Rand's village and took his friends and him away in order to save his village and for fill his destiny.
Rand fell in love with Elayne.
Egwene was Rand's childhood friend. She left with him and Moiraine.
But you think we're crazy,"(Tearless Cries) the daughter expresses her feeling that her father refuses to accept anyone's help. This feeling is also expressed when the poem says "Do it for us, we need you, and that's a fact."(Tearless Cries) The speaker shows her sadness at the change when she said "I miss the way it used to be, just a few months ago."(Tearless Cries)
Not too long ago my father lost his job. This caused him to become distant and many times angry, but with his new job he has become more talkative and fun.
