when the risk outweighs the pain
When you know for sure that staying will lead to more suffering…
But you know what? FUCK THAT. If you want to be with someone, stay with them and love them. Do your best to change the situation so that both of you could be happy together. Life is too short to let go of people whom you truly care about.
@Romer Jed, I always see you on here commenting and you’re constantly referencing your best friend. You speak about her with such genuine care and love and I just wanted to say that I really admire a man like you and that I’m praying that everything works out in your favor.
I never knew…but I lived OK
I think I just decide “this is it” when I feel I am out-growing “my box”.
And I jump out and live with the new environment I stepped in 😉
When it hurts more to hold on.
When you are ready to be happy and free
Honestly, I don’t think I’ll ever know.
I’m 16 years old, and I’ve never DECIDED to hold on or let go, it just happens.
You just have to follow your heart and not let your mind get in the way
I don’t think we ever truly stop holding on. Maybe we hold a little looser, maybe we find something to hold tighter, but i think that once we find something to hold on to it stays with us forever.
I loved a girl who didn’t return the same sentiment. Even though we have gone our septate ways, when ever i run in to her I notice how much she still holds my heart. I can’t let go of anything that has changed my life, I can only hold a little lighter and try and find something else to hold on to.
you keep trying until you can say you gave it all you got… when you are empty, it’s time to let go. (this is my tendency… not entirely healthy, but at least I don’t look back and wonder if I did more… what would have happened.)
You never know!!
Actually i pray and God leads the way !!
probably until I die?
one of my greatest mystery in life..
I’d hold on to you forever <3
When letting go was the only logical step to take. Little did I know, that my heart will still tell me that we should have continued holding on…
When even just thinking about that person brings you torment and anguish. I know I have to let go, but I just haven’t found the strength. I can only cling to people or shove them away.
I may only be 13 but I’ve realized, you hold on to the people who when you see them your heart skips a beat, all you think about is them, and your more happy with them. Your head may say something, but in the end your heart will overrule.
When you finally realize that what whatever you are holding on to is stopping you from seeing what you really want.
When you have no more strength to possibly keep holding on.
When you’ve lost all hope.
No matter how logical it may be to just let go, as long has you have a burning desire in your hear to hold on to that one person, who you believe will make your world that much better, you will never let go, for the hope that one day, all your heartbreak will be mended by that same person and it will all be worth it.
I don’t know. I guess when it’s hurting you more than it’s benefiting you.
When it no longer is fun to be around one another.
When you start to think too much and not to feel enough.
When the pain it causes is greater than the happiness it brings.
When you realize it’s keeping you away from your responsabilities, and that the more you try the more it hurts.
I think that if you really love someone, you can’t let that person go. You should be with that person no matter what. If it’s true love, you’ll always be together.
Even if you know it is true love, and your heart is with him, sometimes the reality of your lives calls for letting go. You know in your heart that he will never leave. It is inside of you, even if it is just a memory…
i dont think you ever really know, and theres always some part of you that holds on
When it’s out of your control or when the risks and sacrifices are not bearing anything good.
sometimes when you decide it lets go, your instinct is telling you to, you may not think it’s the best thing at the time but you’ll look back and realize it was. but you continue holding on when you’re truly in love with someone but there’s obstacles that keep getting in the way, you may think it’s easier to let go and end it but don’t ever give up on someone or something that makes you happy and that you love. even if there’s challenges getting in the way, realize that life isn’t easy, relationships take time and aren’t easy either. the challenges and obstacles are there to test the love and how strong it is. if it withstands then it’s meant to be. just don’t give up. give it all you can.
when you dread taking another step, you must find a new road
It’s time when you give of yourself, and the recipient chooses not to give in return.
When the pain of hanging on is greater than the fear of change
wow, I wasn’t even thinking of human/love relationships when I read this question. I must be the odd man out.
