What do you do when you find the right person, but cannot love that person the way he or she deserves to be loved?
If we aren’t willing to make the tradeoffs then there is really only one thing you can do… Letting a person you love go is the most difficult decision you can make in your life.
More so, because we do love our partners, we want them to have the love that they deserve.
Now, the problem when you do find the right person is that you may not yet be willing to give up a part of yourself – because that is what you’re going to have to do.
You are surrendering a part of yourself to your lover.
Many people will make excuses for why they aren’t in a place in their lives that's conducive to a healthy relationship.
Many will argue that they need to focus on their careers.
This goes for the person you love as well – if this person isn’t at the point in life where he or she can be a loving and devoted partner, the relationship won’t work either.
There are so many ways a relationship can fail, it’s amazing that we aren’t all alone.
The deepest, purest love is the love shared when both individuals give a piece of themselves to the other, but not entirely without expectation.
We may not command anything in return, but because we are only human, we expect our love to be reciprocated.
You are giving up on certain things, making concessions and compromises in order to give yourself to the other person.
You are devoting a chunk of your life, your thoughts, your dreams and your future to them.
If you aren’t yet capable of being in a loving relationship then the two of you are doomed.
