And I just can't let you go..

Anyways some of you might remember reading about the story of me and my friend. A guy I stopped talking to a while ago as I got fed up making all the efforts. It's been now months since we've last chatted. I'd been moving on and really busy with a great many things. Then yesterday, as I was coming back to Ireland, I fell asleep on the flight. I dreamt we were talking to each other again. I woke up with the oddest sense of sadness... And I guess, I just can't let you go...

It's just normal to miss him but never put your heads down into him. Just be firm on your decision, it will make you stronger.

Our minds can play the most dreadful tricks on us. I had a dream a while back that took me quite a bit to get over, and it really should not have affected me at all.
...or so I say. The slings and arrows of Life don't seem to bother me as much these days, but sometimes I start looking back, and I may think 'I was so happy...

Oh, I'm so sorry. Perhaps you need to see him one more time to be sure you did the right thing.

Sadness is natural with the ending of a friendship. It's what's under anger. In my opinion, that's what the dream means: giving yourself permission to be sad. But I would not go chasing after him. He will not make you any happier it he didn't treat you right to begin with.

It's not easy to get over someone. It's strange how sometimes we've gotten on with lives and yet years down the road there may be still a day you suddenly thought of the person...

Letting go of a relationship is always going to be sad. I hope you get over this feeling soon - or that you take steps to ensure you've made the right decision.

Usually when I have dreams like that, when I wake up I will start to reason things out, or I'll remember and the feeling fades. At some point I just got this feeling that my "feelings" and even my dreams were lying to me and...it could kinda hurt like hell, but I'd keep walking. It wasn't pride, it was just the realization that the choice in reality was made by them and their actions. I couldn't feel bad for them, after all, they are adults.

You're right as always, repeating the same pattern will not achieve a new result

Missing is fine but I would advice you to go and meet him because that will make both of you happy right. Don't be sad, friend. Everything will be alright.

Letting go is very hard and painful. I hope you can find peace, in time.
