But what if you had never met?

Fortunately you have so no need to jump of the deep end no matter how beautiful and lovable she is.

She has you and you have her, does it get much better than that?

 

 

In fact, the video below spells out your future quite clearly.

 

 

Now don’t blow it !

 

 

“Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.” ~ Alfred Lord Tennyson.

I think we instinctively turn Tennyson’s observation into a question: is it better to have loved and lost than never to have loved before?

We are often undecided about the answer, plagued by the question at a very deep level.

We ask, wouldn’t it be better to protect ourselves from the pain of loss by never loving—really loving—at all?

Much of the isolation we experience in life is related to this fear of loss. If we stay distant, we imagine we protect ourselves.

This is very unconscious, of course. We don’t consciously set out to keep a buffer between ourselves and others.

We say we want to be close, but we tell ourselves that we can’t be close because we haven’t met the right person or we don’t have the time, the patience, the trust, or the flexibility to risk i

Forget about the past, it can’t hurt you, learn from it and move on.

THE END
