Three painful things in love: right love at the wrong time, having a commitment w/ some1 u know wouldn't last, loving some1 who loves another. But what if one gets it all in one package, isn't it too much? Then why hold on to it? why continue loving?

Isn't it an irony that love despite of its beautiful promises can also be the cause why some hearts bleed? I think this is what you call martyrdom if not stupidity. Yes, it is too much but what can you do when despite of your struggles to break free from that situation you keep falling over and over again... We have a choice to set ourselves free but who can resist such love when its pain is your ultimate happiness? That no matter how painful it is, you keep on loving such person because you know in your heart that it is that person who matters the most in your life. Miserable it may sound, but, some of us are destined to feel that in the name of love....

When you know that commitment is not going to last and you still continue, you are purely wasting your time and emotions! Do not expect a miracle will happen or some movie scene will take place and that person will come back to you. One must learn to be practical in today's world. If you have time to waste, go after that person. But if you are really thinking of settling down seriously, do not run after a relationship that you know will not last. You will just end up hurting yourself uselessly. Turn around and walk away fast before you get caught up in a unhealthy relationship.

I have to add this: For the right love at the wrong time, let time decides.If it meant for you then, it will find its way back to you. Commitment with someone u know would not last,it doesn't make sense. Why commit when you have to let go later. Better let go sooner for the sake of both of you. The sooner you're done with it the sooner you get another chance to start a new better beginning with someone else. Loving someone who loves another, it is part of the game. We can not always have everything we want in life. You have a choice, though.To continue loving that person and hope and pray she/he is meant for you. Or move on, accept the bitter fact that you two can not have a future together. Open your heart to someone else and eventually be happy... When it is too much to handle, you will start rationalizing things like this. Needless to say, I am in this situation...
