When is the right time to let go? Naks!

>> Monday, September 22, 2008

I was reading a very old newspaper (I found it when I was cleaning my kuya's closet!) (Yes you heard me right, I was cleaning! CLEANING! a very rare event! LOL!). I found a very interesting article about letting go. It was originally in my Tagalog, I just translated some of the lines. It was a letter coming from a man. I was surprised; I never expected that a man could be that emotional! He was sharing his dilema to the writer of the column. I would just like to share a part of the advice that the writer gave to the letter sender. Here it goes...

“Its time to let go, let go of your feelings. You know deep in your heart, you can’t win that person back because in the first place you never had that person. There is no point in hoping, because from the start it was hopeless. You must have been blinded by the care and affection that existed between you and that person, but you should have known that it was nothing. That person might have done those things to you out of respect or gratitude. Yes it is human nature to expect something to be returned when you give something. But when you give love, you should not expect that the love that you gave would be reciprocated. The more you expect something the bigger the disappointment would be. That person might have loved you but not in the way you want that person to love you.

The longer that feeling stays, the harder it would be to drive it out from your system. I would not say it’s easy, I know it would be so hard on your part, but that is the best for you. Time is a friend; it would help you heal all the wounds that loving that person have caused you. Let go, move on and love again.”

Yeah right! Let go! Move on! (Am I listening to what I said? I hope so! )
