Love&Letting Go:Sharing

When you think of your past love,
you may view it as a failure.
But when you find a new love,
you view the past as a teacher.
In the game of love, it
doesn't really matter who won or who lost.
What is important is you know when
to hold on and when to let go!

You know you really love someone when you
want him or her to be happy, even if his or her
happiness means that you're not part of it.

Everything happens for the best. If the person
you love doesn't love you back, don't be afraid to
love someone else again, for you'll never know
unless you give it a try. You'll never love a person
you love unless you risk for love. Love strives in
hurting. If you don't get hurt, you don't learn
how to love.

Love doesn't hurt all the time, though the hurting
is still there to test you and to help you grow. Don't

find love, let love find you. That's why it's called
falling in love because you don't force yourself to
fall. You just fall. You cannot finish a book without
closing its chapters. If you want to go on, then you
have to leave the past as you turn the pages.

Love is not destroyed by a single failure or won
by a single caress. It is a lifetime venture in which
we are always learning, discovering and growing.

The greatest irony of love is letting go when you
need to hold on and holding on when you need to
let go. We lose someone we love only when we
are destined to find someone else who can love
us even more than we can love ourselves.

On falling out of love, take some time to heal
and then get back on the horse. But don't ever
make the same mistake of riding the same one
that threw you the first time.

To love is to risk rejections; to live is to risk
dying, to hope is to risk failure. But risk must
be taken because the greatest hazard in life
is risking nothing!

To reach for another is to risk involvement, to
expose your feelings is to expose your true self; to
love is to risk not to be loved in return.

How to define love: fall but do not stumble, be
constant but not too persistent, share and never
be unfair, understand and try not to demand, hurt
but never keep the pain. Love is like a knife. It can
stab the heart or it can carve wonderful images
into the soul that always last for a lifetime.

Love is supposed to be the most wonderful
feeling. It should inspire you and give you joy and
strength. But sometimes the things that give you
joy can also hurt you in the end.

Loving people means giving them the freedom
that they choose to be and where they choose to
be. For all the heartaches and the tears, for
gloomy days and fruitless years, you should give
thanks, for you know, that these were the things
which helped you grow.

Loving someone means giving him the freedom
to find his way, whether it leads towards you or
away from you. Love is a painful risk to take but
the risk must be taken no matter how scary or
painful, for only then you'll experience the fullness
of humanity and that is love.

Only love can hurt your heart, fill you with desire
and tear you apart. Only love can make you cry
and only love knows why. If you're not ready to cry,
if you're not ready to take the risk, if you're not
ready to feel the pain, then you're not ready to fall
in love.

There was a time in our lives when we became
afraid to fall in love because every time we do, we
get hurt, then I figured that's why it's called
falling in love. When you decide to love, allow it to
grow. When you promise to love, refuse to let it die!
