  • You can't really let someone go. If they want to go they will go. But you can let go within yourself. If you love them it's painful but also it makes you feel glad that they will be happy.
  • Depends on where they want to go.
  • If you love them enough for their feelings to be more important than your's, then yes, I think so, eventually you'll be able to move on.
  • yeah its okay but that bring up the question are you okay with that
  • Well if they stay because they feel like they have to , they will resent you . So yes ,because you can't make someone love you , life doesn't work that way - They will come back if they decide differently
  • You have to so YOU can be happy. By freeing them you're making room for someone that loves YOU. : )
  • Let them go so it will make me happy after 21 years I could have married someone that dosent live forever an dosent have 21 years to throw away.
  • It would hurt like hell but yes. It makes me think of that old saying "if you love something set it free". I do not want to be with someone who no longer loves me - its not fair to them and it sure isn't fair to me. I have had to walk away from someone I truly loved and in the end it was the best thing for me. I went on to find someone who loves me the way that I also love him and the happiness I feel now far over shadows the pain I went through walking away from the other guy.

  • Definitely!
  • yea it is okay u just have to have the strength to let them be happy by letting them go and making u sad but if u think about it, it should make u happy to see that person happy
  • Absolutly...why kept them from finding who there truly ment to be...it might be heart wrenching but it also means they're not the one for you either...
  • of course it is..it may hurt like a bitch but it shows that you truly love them
  • no,,,,, fuck dat shit....
  • Yes.It's also ok to let them go if it makes YOU happy :)
  • Strangely I offered just that to the one I love today. Thankfully he said no. I think that if you truly want someone's happiness you have to allow them the freedom they might need.
  • It can be the most painful thing to do, but when you truly love someone, you do want them to be happy.(whether it's with you or without.) If you would reverse the situation, I believe you would want them to let you go if that was what makes YOU happy. You can't "own" someone just for your sole happiness.
  • i know you will be hurt if they want to go but their is nothing you can do to keep them so all you have to do is let them go
  • No...I think you should give them the option of big bits or little bits before you put them into the wood chipper. Otherwise it's just rude.
  • Im in that situation right now. Except for he is the one letting me go. He says that it will devestate him, but if it makes me happy, my happiness is all that matters to him. So he has to let me go.
  • letting them go,shows that they do not really love as much as you do,so why wasting the love on somebody that doesnt appreciate it .Let them go.
  • Yes it is...I hope this is my wife asking this question:)
  • I feel that if you love someone you should let them go if they are expressing being unhappy in a relationship with you. It's hard when you do love someone but at the same time what is really the point of staying in a one sided relationship.. You will continue to over compensate for the both of you and in the long run be miserable. Just cherish the good moments you had and let happiness find you.. Life is too short to be unhappy.
  • Its perfectly OK - infact its the honorable thing to do. Holding onto a relationship for the wrong reasons will cause unnecessary friction. It will be the hardest thing to do, but the bravest.
  • No, absolutely not. I keep all the people I love in my basement.
  • it's so much easier to say than do... but yes.
  • Yes!.. Its hard.. but there is a time when you just have to leave it with faith, time and destiny..
  • depends if it really makes them happy or they are just putting a brave face on
  • Yes it is if you truly love them then you will let them go to make them happy I've had to do the same and it hurts like hell to see the one you love with some one else but it will put a smile on your face when you see them smile
  • Yes, yes, yes!! By all means......if they want to go, let them go. Let them go with love. Bravo if you can do that!!!
  • Yes, if you love someone let them go and if they come back then you know it is meant to be.
  • That would be the definition of love...
