Love, let go and learn

Posted by Alei at 9/20/2008

There are things in life that we can’t hold on forever, no matter how we fight for it. Things change, people and feelings also do. Memories are the only things that never change when everything else does. It’s an agony to accept that despite the feelings we have, it’s all not enough. Despite our willingness to leave everything for the person, it’s all not enough. It leads to a painful ending to what should have been a long and happy relationship. It’s just that some things are so close to be beyond our reach.

Loving is always a learning process. With love, we learn how to care and sacrifice. We learn to be unselfish and give more than we can even to the point that we lost ourselves. And when everything does not end well, we learn and how it feels to fall and get hurt, to sacrifice yet taken for granted. But learning does not have to end there. After the fall, even though it is difficult, we strive to get back to our own feet and move on. Letting go is one of life’s greatest challenges we continue to face. However, this is what we should learn, that life does not end when heartaches begin. It’s true that there is life in love but there can still be life even after losing love. True enough that if we are torn into million pieces, it would normally take time over to repair back ourselves again. Still, life goes on.

As Oprah did say, "you always do a little growing up every time you do a little letting go." Growth may sometimes hurt us but though the pain made us bitter, our experiences will surely make us better.

Reminds me of a quotation by Helen Keller, "When one door of happiness closes, another opens: but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us." Letting go is challenging and yet the road ahead will be exciting. You won't know what the Almighty one has prepared for you ahead.
