Love Is In The Letting Go. Why? Because then we can see one’s true colors.
You know how the song goes, “If you Love Somebody Set Them Free. Free, Free, Set Them Free.”
What happens when Love dies?
It’s different for different people. Who broke up with who? The blame-game never ends.
Let’s call it a high-school game known as “Tug of War.” Do you know the game? Good.
So how does it work? Two sides pull and pull until one simply can’t hold on anymore.
The only guarantee is that no one will win or lose and the game will never end until… what?
Someone let’s go. So let’s say your partner is the rope. If you let go, they will usually fall down.
If no one let’s go, it’s an endless struggle. Most common in these type of “on-again, off-again” relationships is where you push and they pull away or you let go and they pull you back in.
How many times must we experience break-up and getting back together again? How about make-up sex? How many times do you forgive and forget? Does history repeat itself? You tell me.
When a break up occurs one of three things happen:
1) Denial of the truth, where a defense mechanism kicks in to avoid the truth
2) Destruction, where a sabotage manifests wanting to escape from reality
3) Your partner acts like Dustin Hoffman storming the church at the end of “The Graduate”
That’s Life-Long Love folks! Anything else is history repeating itself.
So let’s let go of Love right now and See if Life-Long Love returns.
P.S. It always does!
