So many times I hear people saying they don’t love someone anymore, but the reality is that love lives forever, it’s only the relationship that has ended.
I think that it’s unfair to require a definition on our feelings toward our past relationships just because we are no longer in them. Friends and family alike and even sometimes our new relationship want to hear us say that we not only don’t love our former love, but that we hate them. And, I have to ask why? Why is it necessary to reduce a relationship to nothing, as though the relationship never meant anything to you, or made you happy?
Nothing is meant to last forever, and for that reason it’s important to remember that our relationships are part of our journey and growth. Yes, sometimes relationships can hurt, but if there hadn’t been some joy you wouldn’t have been there. People change, and grow, and sometimes they grow apart. Just because you no longer want to be with someone or they no longer want to be with you it’s no reason to harbor resentment. You have to appreciate what you received from the relationship and move on.
I always like to believe that I received whatever I was supposed to from the any experience I have, or relationships I have been in. When the experience or relationship has ended I know that the Universe is making way for me the have new experiences and relationships. I take what I’ve learned to hopefully do better and be better in the future. Yes, things have happened to me that have hurt my feelings, but those things don’t change the love I have, they just help me to better understand who I’m dealing with, and the things I do and don’t want in my life.
There is a difference between loving someone, and being in love, but at the end of the day if you love someone, then you love them. And, really loving someone means wanting the best for them and their happiness even if that means them not being with you.
Love and blessings in divine order,
