Sometimes You Just Have To Let Someone Go...

Such as a relative, friend or lover. But, sometimes we are forced to make hard decisions by extraordinary suffering. It's easy to judge, or say, "never give up," until you have been there. Eventually, you begin to realize that life is too short and your powers to teach, influence or heal are limited. You finally accept that their emptiness, pain and dysfunction requires more than you have to give. You can't hand your whole life and soul to someone who doesn't even care [giva a damn, etc.] about their own. Letting go is an excruciating heartbreak; mourning the death of what once was. If you did let someone go, and you still have guilt, it's time to forgive yourself and begin to heal. If it is time to let someone go, for their sake, or for yours, then this may be your confirmation. Btw, do whutchu gots da do... later...

    There are two types of losses. The first is one in which I agree with your sentence "you begin to realize that life is too short and your power to teach, influence or heal that person is limited. That can be sad and as you stated, there comes a time when you have to stop mourning over what could have been and work on yourself. Then there is the second one loss by death, whether is a parent, a sibling or a relative. This type of loss is excruciating. My sister recently lost her daughter, she was deeply devasted and could not be consoled. She told me that no parent should ever have to bury a child and that she has a hole in her heart that can never be replaced. She also said that there is no such thing called closure for parents who bury a child, they just learn over the years to live with it.

    I can concur with all that you said, etc. To lose a such a loved one is indeed devestating, etc. And it is tough, but as stated i your last sentence, one just have to learn to live with it. I've been there and i am still living with it. Thanks for sharing.... My Condolences for your sister, etc. Have a blessed day...
