Letting Go Of The One Who Got Away

  No comments

It is so easy to get caught up in the could of would of should of.  But through these relationships are valuable lessons.  The first lesson is that I was not ready for those type of men.  While I can always site what the man has done wrong to me, there were times where I went about the relationships wrong way and was not ready for a real relationship.  Or better yet there was time where I done the man wrong and I was the one who ruined things.

This brings me to my second lesson, stop thinking about the one that got away.  They are gone and if they have moved on then there is a large possibility that they are not coming back.  And therefore to sit and reminiscence about what is not and what is never going to be is utterly pointless and hindering you from moving on.

I am sure that we have have regrets in relationships. I am sure that there are some men out there who regret letting me get away just like there are people out there who I regret letting get away.  But the best remedy for that is just to build a bridge and get over it.  If you are not with that wonderful person there is a reason.  If it was meant to be, then it would be.  And so therefore we cannot live in past relationships, we cannot compare our new relationships to the one that we let get away.

Stop wishing that you were with them.  Stop wondering what went wrong and how you can get it back.  Let go and let God.  Move on to your future.  Realize that you messed up, they messed up, or perhaps a combination of both, whatever the reason is; it does not matter.  There is someone else that is better out there for you, better than the one that you left behind.  Your only job is to be sure that you do not bring that past baggage that you had into the new relationship into the old relationship.  Got it.  I hope so.  Until next time folks.
