A Lesson of Letting Go and Acceptance

---unknown author---

Sometimes, in our relentless efforts to find the person we love we fail
to recognize and appreciate the people who love us. We miss out on so
many beautiful things and simply because we allow ourselves to be
enslaved by our own selfish concerns. Go for the man of deeds and not
for the man of words for you will find rewarding happiness not with the
man you love but the man who loves you more.

The best lovers are those who are capable of loving from a distance, far
enough to allow the other person to grow, but never too far to feel the
love deep within your being. To let go of someone doesn't mean you have
to stop loving, it only means that you allow that person to find his own
HAPPINESS without expecting him to come back. Letting go is not just
setting the other person free, but it is also setting yourself free from
all fears, bitterness, hatred,and anger that you keep in your heart.

Do not let the bitterness rare away your strength and weaken your faith,
and never allow pain to dishearten you, but rather let you grow with
wisdom in bearing it. You may have found peace in just loving someone
from a distance not expecting anything in return.

But be careful, for this can sustain life but can never give enough room
for us to grow. We can all survive with just beautiful memories of the
past but real peace and happiness come only with open acceptance of
what reality is today.

There comes a time in our lives when we chance upon someone so nice and
we just find ourselves getting so intensely attracted to that person.
This feeling soonbecome a part of our everyday lives and eventually
consumes our thoughts and actions. The sad part of it is when we begin
to realize that this person feels nothing more for us than just
friendship, or the feelings he might have for u is just too far from how
you love him. We start our desperate attempt to get noticed and be
closer but in the end our efforts are still unrewarded and we end up
being sorry for ourselves.

You don't have to be bitter on love. What you need to learn is how to
accept the verdict of reality without being bitter or sorry for yourself
Believe me, you would be better off giving that dedication and love to
someone more deserving. Don't let your heart run your life, be sensible
and let your mind speak for itself. Listen not only to your feelings but
to reason as well.

Always remember that if you lose someone today, it means that someone
better is coming tomorrow: If you lose love that doesn't mean that you
failed in love.

Cry, if you have to, but make it sure that the tears wash away the hurt
and the bitterness that the past has left with you. Let go of yesterday
and love will find its way back to you. And when it does, pray that it
may be the love that will stay and last a lifetime.

"When you lose someone... and you think you were the one who loved most,
between the two of you... he lost more. For someday you can love someone
the way that you loved him...But he will never be loved again the way
that you did."
