Accept was is, without a doubt. I prefer to close fully down, and distance won't be of essence thereafter, eventually.
[@414209,SapphicHeart] I do shut down but my heart never does

[@1207913,Handmaidssnail]
No matter what, they're always going to be a part of the heart, they once held it in their hands.
[@414209,SapphicHeart] ugh...yeah

Or make them a distant memory and move on so you can experience something nice with somebody worth it.
[@11509,Keepitsimple] of course ..that's the goal ,isnt it ..
Keepitsimple51-55, F
[@1207913,Handmaidssnail] Pretty much. You鈥檙e in or out. Not gonna play head games. Life is too short.
[@11509,Keepitsimple] you are correct

Definitely. Letting go can be extremely difficult, but there鈥檚 only so much you can do and so much time, energy, and attention you can devote to a person before it鈥檚 made clear that you have to start focusing on the quality of your own path鈥ven if that means they鈥檙e not supposed to walk with you on it.
[@436944,PerfectionOfTheHeart] exactly !..

Sometimes you're so used to loving a person, it's out of habit, and you don't realize that. You have to decide to step away, and focus on yourself, and it eventually gets easier.
[@674752,ZenPearl] yes of course..it just takes time
ZenPearlF
[@1207913,Handmaidssnail] Exactly.

Sounds good on paper, but it鈥檚 usually more complicated than that.
[@403045,Ambroseguy80] no it shouldn't. Unfortunately, other factors do ...
Ambroseguy8051-55, M
[@1207913,Handmaidssnail] I鈥檓 sorry鈥. Complications do abound in relationships. Would be nice to keep things simple.
[@403045,Ambroseguy80] it would be ,that's just not how it goes sometimes
MaleficentF
