I think the hardest thing a person does in their life is learn to let go of something that they love. As much as I am an advocate of love and that love can break through walls and endure anything. One part of love that is not always shared is recognizing that the love is not the right fit or not shared and learning to let go.
Letting can be challenging, for why would a person love someone so much and it not be meant to be. Well, sometimes that happens. Sometimes we fall in love with the wrong person, and that is when we must discipline ourselves to love yet let go. This can be the hardest thing a person can do because you feel so much that you believe it cannot be true that a love so big should be right. But in life, we often encounter people we love yet are not the right person for us. This is okay as long as we allow ourselves to let them go. Whatever the reasons, no matter how much love we have for that person, sometimes letting go is best for them and us.
Love is such a good thing to have in our lives. Love can be forever, as it can be temporary. But we need love in our lives, which is what I wish to send out into the world. No matter what we do, we always keep searching for love if we do not have it. And that we continue to keep love with us if we have it. Love is what makes us be better and do better.
As the quote goes,
It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.Alfred Lord Tennyson
