Finding the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, is the most beautiful feeling of all. Yet, the unfortunate truth is that the right person doesn't always come at the right time.
And that makes all the difference in the world.
You're not guaranteed to find the right person at the wrong time, but it can happen.
And I understand that you may think that if you met the right person, things will just work themselves out like in the movies. You know, boy meets girl. Boy and girl fall in love. And they live happily ever after – roll credits.
How wonderful it would be if the real world was so simple.
In reality, human beings are emotionally complex and because we're so emotionally complicated, we manage to make situations complicated.
Even if you do find the right person, if you aren't the one, the relationship will fail.
Relationships don't only fail because the person you're with turns out to be the wrong person; they also fail when you yourself aren't yet the person you need to be.
When you fall for the right person at the wrong time you will feel guilt. In the back of your mind, you will feel a lingering pain that you're holding them back because you're not giving your all.
If you aren't yet capable of being in a loving relationship then you will most likely implode emotionally and take it out on the person you love.
This goes for the person you love as well – if this person isn't at the point in life where he or she can be a loving and devoted partner, the relationship won't work either.
There are so many ways a relationship can fail, it's amazing that we aren't all alone.
And I know that letting a person you love go --- is the most difficult decision you can make in your life.
But in the end, I hope that you have the strength to keep going, not to give up on yourself. You may have had to give up on your relationship with that person, but you can find love again.
