This is the thing about love: a huge part of it is in the letting go. Allow people to be who they are and encourage them to do what makes them happy, even if what makes them happy doesn’t make you happy. Never tell someone what they cannot do for even when we are no longer single, we will always be singular individuals with our own free will. Never, ever try to disrupt that will. EVERYTHING ISN’T ABOUT YOU. True love is loving someone the way they need to loved and not the way you want to love them. Unconditional love has no bounds and no end. No matter what someone does or doesn’t do, continue to love them, especially when you know it’s time to move on.
You see, there are 6 kinds of love (Greek philosophy) and only one of them is romantic. Learn and practice other kinds of love and learn to love some people from afar. Learn to love and let go at the same time. And never be afraid. Relationships never end; they only change. When two souls connect, neither one will forget the other but that doesn’t mean that person deserves to hold the same position in your life forever. In love, there is no ownership; no one is ever yours. Everyone belongs to God. Be okay. Love others the way God loves you, no matter how much it hurts because we have hurt God and he still never stops loving us. Love with all your might and never let anyone strip that love from you. Honor God with an open, loving heart and when you are hurt, honor him more by allowing him to heal you in those broken places and to make those places strong. Don’t run from pain. It is pain that fortifies you and brings you closer to God.
