Letting Go

It can be challenging when it's time to let go of someone you care for and appreciate.

This can be your current marriage or a newer relationship – it’s never easy. However, you must be true to yourself and what you want in your life.

If you cannot get there with the person you are dating or keeping in touch with; it's time to

release this person and be completely honest. Honesty can be one of the most complex parts of a relationship; no one wants to hurt another's feelings, especially if there is nothing blatantly wrong with your situation.

We’ve been asked if it is not “long-term” material, should I keep going through the motions and enjoy the moment? A: Yes, No, and It isn’t straightforward.

You need to ask yourself whether you can go through the motions, knowing it's not going anywhere to fill a void in your life. Or do you move on quickly and get out before one of you has feelings on the edge of growing deeper?

Every situation is different. Our advice – if you are not feeling it but having fun, live in that moment and be upfront with that person. If you are not into your person now, you will hurt the other person – get out before it gets too hard to handle.

Maybe you are not looking for a long-term relationship, yet the other person is ready to move forward quickly; if you are divorced -do NOT get into a deep connection for at least six months; you will or may regret it.

Even if both partners want it, letting go of marriage is still an emotional roller coaster; give yourself time to heal and not be pushed in something you do not wish to.

We’ve watched many people jump quickly to bait emotions they do not want to feel. All we can say is, please take time to heal, and if that means letting go of someone you recently met, believe us, you will be thankful you did. You will look back and say, “I am so happy; I took care of myself and figured out what I truly want.”

Do not settle for anything less than the best; after all, you only live once; shoot for the stars!
