Is it right to stop the one you love from walking away?

even if you are not sure if you still love him / her?

I can relate to this question. I don't think there is a point to stop a loved one who wants to be free. To let him do what he want to do with his life and be happy. It doesn't matter if I love him so much and that I'll miss him so bad. If walking away will make him happy, then let it be. If you stop a person who wants to go, then it'll just make both of you miserable because you will deny that person the happiness that he feels he will have with the new journey he is about to take.

Of course it is NOT right to stop a loved one from walking away. Even if you still love them, they are clearly unhappy so you should let them go. Trying to hold on to something that isn't really yours is wrong. "If you love something, then set it free."

I think if you are not sure of the person you have right now to be the person who you will be staying for lifetime. Better open chances by not stopping him from walking away. Unless you are sure of yourself that you really love that person like as you love yourself. Then, the right to stop him from walking away gives a valid justification. Than, pretending things to be happy in yourself if you are not really sure about him. It will just give pain for both of you at the end.

if you love her/him and he/she loves you back!...it is ok to stop her/him from leaving...because if you love her/him...you should be the one that can provide her/him the happiness she needs! being together loving each other is the greatest happiness! but she/him never thought of you as part of her/his happiness...then i probably will think it is best to let the one you love walk away! but it will be cruel to yourself!
