RE:  LETTING GO

I miss him, miss him, miss him,

More than words can say.

The real him, forever gone,

To rest, I let him lay.

  1. Alternatively, sometimes one has to let things go, because they maybe too heavy and horrendously burdensome. One cannot walk freely with chains or weights tied to one’s ankles. Just a thought that came to my mind tonight, which I thought I should share this perspective.

    These thoughts came to me as I was thinking about Kyrielle, whose “true love” did not appreciate her true love and self-less sacrifices she made for him. His cold and callous heart did not reciprocate her true love, and as soon as it got a chance, flew away like the flight of a dove. His love appeared true only in the face of death, only when he needed Kyrielle’s support – but changed its face to reveal its ugly, ruthless and selfish side, as soon as Kyrielle put the breath of life into it, literally, and brought it alive at the expense of her own life. It’s an irony, a harsh dichotomy, a perplexing paradox. I just hope, as a friend and well-wisher, that Kyrielle will move on with strong self-determination, and I am sure she will come out stronger than ever before. I also hope that Kyrielle will find her true “true love” that she surely deserves.

    Thanks.

  2. Thanks for your response. Regarding your last line, hopefully you will not feel so alone again, with the followers and friends that you have, and continue to have in this blogosphere. It’s true that many of them may be nameless and faceless, and there is a little chance that you may be able to meet with any of them; yet their feelings of love and friendship will always be with you. And hopefully you will not feel so alone….that’s all I can say. Best Regards.

  3. kyrielleadelshine- there is a very famous quote: “Sometimes love means letting go when you want to hold on tighter.” IMHO “Letting go” is also a valid test for true love. It gives other party the freedom to choose, and if that person comes back to you after you letting go, that’s the true love you would never lose. You should hold on to it. If the person does not come back to you, there was no true love at all to begin with (i.e. it was only the love for reason and matter of convenience). And you would’ve lost the battle some day or other, while trying to hold on to this person hopelessly.

    Great post. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you. You are wise ;0) I wish it felt so simple, but I’m working to keep my mind in the right spot. Honestly, I’m about to sit down and read some Sigmund Freud on ‘The Ego and the Id’ or something…I don’t know what the hell to do with myself. It’s so hard to know sometimes, you know? I mean god, how uneloquently put, but you know what I mean. It’s just difficult to be in this place of processing emotion, it’s like it’s post-action (in terms of what’s done is done), but pre-digestion (in terms of having something eloquent to say about it). I’m in the middle. The messy middle. I guess it’s not so bad, just sit back and let the ol’ mind marinate for awhile ;0) Thanks for your comments always, but this one in particular. Made me feel better, not so alone you know.

      • You are correct. It’s really easy to say, and a lot harder to do. Only person in the situation can be the best judge of the correct step. Nonetheless, in “letting go” scenario, if the response is negative (i.e. there is no returning of the other party), it’s the best to become stronger than ever before and accept it as a pre-destined good bye to bad riddance IMHO.

        Hope that your day is going well. Ciao.
