How to Let Him Go?
Are you coping with the difficult parting with the beloved man and don’t know how to let him go? Then, read our article.
Loss, separation or divorce with a man, with whom you had long and serious relationships are considered to be a tremendous shock.
After the long period of time you spent together, a couple becomes a unity and a man, together with his life, becomes a part of the woman.
That’s why it is so difficult to separate with the part of yourself in another person.
It is believed that in order to overcome the leaving one needs half of the time, which was spent together.
Nevertheless, you mustn’t give even a single chance to the former feelings, which can ruin you! Learn how to leave the past behind you.
This is definitely hard to work on yourself and until you do it, the doors to the other life stay closed.
Non-acceptance of a situation is a painful fight, which is very devastating and burdensome for a soul.
In any case you should look for a way how to let him go, because a person, who succeeded and let the beloved one go, improves his personality, and becomes stronger and wiser.
Where does the pain of separation come from?
How does this terrible inability to throw a man away from your heart occur?
First of all, let’s revise everything in our mind and discover all “rats in the attic”, which may hide there.
The sense of having something in your own property.
No matter what situation you are in, remember – a person is not your property. You did not buy him in the shop, you did not receive him like a birthday present, and you have no rights over him, which are proved by notarial certification.
He is free in his choice the same way you are, so try to understand and accept this fact.
If you parted and your deeply loved young man does actually nothing to change it, it’s his right.
Expectations and false images.
Where is the offence coming from? What triggers it? These are all your unjustified expectations.
You meet a man who wins you over by some traits of his character.
You fall in love with the primary image and the further manifestations of his character or the appearing unpleasant circumstances do not bother you. You look at your deeply loved man in the light of the image, which you’ve fallen in love with.
Then you think how to change a living person, so that he will fit those existing images.
However, when everything happens not the way it was expected, your faith in the feelings collapses like a house of cards and the feeling of been deceived appears.
Get enough resoluteness and set yourself free from this pressure.
P.S. Very often the pain from the unshared love is evoked by the feeling of offence.
You may have some reasonable and weighty arguments or may have none of them, but if there are some reasons why you are apart, there is always a light temptation to make your deeply loved person responsible and start feeling offended.
Though, a classic once said that you can offend only those, who want to be offended.
