How Do You Let Go?

I’m sure all of you have been in this situation, you meet someone, fall in love, have an amazing time together, but due to one circumstance or another the relationship must come to an end. The love is never lost and there are no negative feelings toward one another. How do you let go?


Not sure if there is a right or wrong answer to this question. If you sit and dwell on what you had, it makes it hard to move on, but even when you can move on you can’t help but to remember what you had. You want to remain in each other’s lives, but how do you continue a friendship and live your lives separately? You feel that you are mature enough and can handle the emotions that come with seeing one another on just a friend level, but somewhere, somehow, feelings begin to creep back up on you. You know that not seeing each other is probably best, but you can’t handle not seeing them. It then turns into a vicious cycle.


They say, “time heals all pain.”  Does that mean after a while the pain will go away if you don’t see each other anymore? Who wants to go through that pain though? It’s easier to give advice on this situation than it is to actually receive and apply it. Your heart tells you one thing while your brain tells you something else. Which is right and which do you follow?


The best you can do is live your life and however the relationship works out, it works out. There is a possibility where you will learn how to become friends in time, or maybe you will drift apart, or maybe the day will come, where the time is finally right for the two of you to be together. You never really know how things will play out, you just have to stay strong and know that everything will turn out the way it is suppose to in the end.
