There comes a time in a relationship that you have to let go of each other. I mean, people may come and go. Maybe that person who came in our lives just passed by, shared some precious moments, and unfortunately have to let go, or have to go for some reasons that sometimes we do not understand and would not understand. But.. If that time comes, are you willing to let go of the people that we love? Do you believe in the saying that if you really love someone, let that person go. Sad, but, unfortunately, for me it's TRUE.. :(

Very true and very hard to do. I have had to let someone go before, we still talk today but we both came to a point in our lives that we knew we had to walk away. I will always love him and he will always love me, we loved each other enough to know that we had to both walk away

That's sweet, but why do some nice stories have to end like that? At least, we have to thank God that yes, you had the chance of meeting and being with that person, at least sharing your life with that person for some time in your life. ~amaine~

We were drowning each other so to speak. It was a hard decision that we came to and one that we took very seriously. We were married for nine years, we got married way to young in life and over the years we came to a place that we knew if one of us did not leave it would kill both of us. He left, and while at the time I had a hard time accepting it and even forgiving him. I know now, without a doubt that it was the best thing he could do for me at that time in our lives. It was hard, it was difficult and it hurt like nothing I have ever experienced before in my life. But it turned out great for both of us in the end. I wish I could change the outcome of our marriage and that we wold have had the strength to make it work, I think that had we had God in our life at the time things may have been different. But things did not turn out like that and I am happily married again with three wonderful children.

Thank you and it did not happen overnight. I had to get over the divorce and find happiness in myself first. It took some time. Divorce is never easy.

I have done this with the love of my life... We were having problems, he became confused and started wondering about a girl that he used to date. I stepped outside the circle and told him that he needs to think about and do what is best for him. So.. he left me. He didn't get with her though... We actually became closer. Perhaps someday we'll get back to where things were before, but there's alot of healing to be done first.

That's sad to hear. :( You actually set him free to be with another girl? You really must love him. But, are you still willing to take the risk of being with him again, since there is a fact that he might still leave you for the same reason?

He never got with her.... I didn't want for him to get torn and to feel the pressure of having to make the choice. Everything changes... tomorrow is never guaranteed... yesterday can't be changed. All we have is the moment we live in.

I know. :) Off the record, this is not an experience in real life by the way. ^^ It's a friend's situation, that's why I came up with the topic. Thanks for the response by the way.

I believe that Love is a Self-less act to a person you Love. Whether that person will love you back is decision for him or her to make. and if you think he or she will not changed and will not love you anymore. I think letting is the best medicine. most of the time, people who let go of their partner is not always good bye. it is believed as well that Love is better the second time around. but it doesn't apply to any one..

Right, sometimes there would be a second-time around for others, some won't. It really depends upon the situation and upon the people themselves.

letting go is not really easy.. for me it takes tons of tears before i really let go of the person i love. i had this person before that it took me 3 years to let him go.. i bargained and still convinced my self that he is meant for me. but as i see him happy for the other girl, i just let go. even though it hurts me to the highest level of mount everest... lolz but it hurts me more when he said that he wasn't happy with me anymore.... poor me... but anyway, letting go of a person is also letting someone in our lives... maybe not yet the one but atleast life moves on. and if ever that someone is now the real someone.... letting the other go is worth letting go...

I am sorry to hear what happened. But like what you've said, it's like this.. When God closes the door, He opens a window for new more things and opportunities to come.

i am really sorry. but what you have said is true amaine. i do believe in letting your love go. if it comes back to you it was yours, else it never was. letting your love go hurts a lot. a feeling comes as if your need has been snatched away from you. each moment cherished together would haunt your mind, each moment make your heart heavy, but there is nothing you can do. just hope and pray they return back. if your love was that much true and caring, he will definitely miss you and your love and come back. i myself have gone through this. i know how it feels, how much it pains.

Maybe things like this happen because, maybe they really are not meant to be, or there is a better person out there much more deserving to get the love that we are giving. At least, we should be thankful that in our life, we have met that wonderful person, and shared good memories with us.

Yeah, I think that's how it goes. You cannot ask one person to stay if they are not happy anymore in your arms.
