This is life’s simple fact. There can never be any relationship that can claim immunity from failure. People are sometimes torn apart by forces beyond their control. Many of us make promises that we could not even keep. We vow to love someone forever only to find ourselves falling for another person. This attraction can be so intense that we become selfishly insensitive to the needs of others. We resist reason and insist on passion.
The truth sometimes hurts but it is always better to be honest than to lie about what we really feel. It was better for us to have known the real reason behind sudden coldness of our partner than to have been misled by some lame and unacceptable excuses.
Many of us who have been left alone by someone we dearly loved still wallow in self pity and incessantly ask ourselves where we went wrong. We waste our time searching for answers that may never be revealed to us. Why can’t we just accept that love doesn’t give us the license to own a person – that love doesn’t guarantee permanence.
There are times when we just have to let go of someone who means the world to us not because we want to but because it is the right thing to do. We cannot force anyone to love us when they don’t want to love us anymore. We cannot beg someone to stay when he/she wants to leave and be with someone else. This is what love is all about.
It is all about sacrifice. It is all about learning. It is all about accepting everything without holding anything back or throwing anything away. The end of love is not the end of life. It should be the beginning of understanding that love leaves for a reason. Love leaves with a lesson and it is only when we learn from it that we are able to earn the wisdom and the courage move on and find love again.
