You might have had a wonderful relationship before; the only relationship in which you have felt alive – even when things went wrong.

Maybe it was your fault that the relationship was broken off, and you constantly think about how you can resolve things.

You have been in love before, but you have never met someone like that and maybe that is the reason you cannot let go.

You want to let go, but you are unable to do so because you think he or she is your soulmate and there will never be someone like that. You have been thinking about the mistakes you did to that person. Maybe you think, it is time for you to forgive that person and hold on.On the other hand you have been trying everything in your power to get this person back into your life, but it is not working out.

You have been calling this person now and then, and have even left messages on different social network platforms, but they have not responded.

You meet with the person and try to convince him or her to reconsider, but nothing works.

Sometimes you feel tired because your attempts do not yield positive results. You will feel like that because even in real life if you water your flowers and they do not grow, you despair of watering them.

Maybe it is time for you to accept that your time with that person is over. The question is, do you not think maybe your time is up?You should always remember that you are not the only one who sees or meets that person and who meets her/him.

There are lot of people who see her/him and meet with her/him We are living in a society where money influence people too much and where people date with other people because of money. Maybe he or she has met someone who has more money than you, someone who can treat them more often than you could. Obviously, she/he will forget about you and might regret the time spent with you. You might be think about what I am saying right now and feel like I am offending you. I am very sorry.People are easily influenced by money and might even date someone for their money or the benefits they can gain from affluence.

Do yourself a favour – leave that person alone. Focus on yourself and better your life.

The good news is, there are people out there who have the ability to love you just the way you are. You might not know them yet, but in time you will meet them. They will not be bothered with how much you earn or the kind of job you do. They will really love you.

Do not lose hope – your past relationship was preparing you for a better one.
