The fairest thing in the world — the most proper thing in the world — to do when you know the time has come is to let a person go. Get out of her life and stay out.

Sure enough, the person who is constantly being damaged has the option to kick the perpetrator out of her life, but in some cases, the ties are so strong that if both people don’t let go, there is no release.

History, love, and emotional soul-ties are some of the harshest things in this world. It’s hard to let go. Decades of love can’t easily be thrown out the window no matter how hard they try. The heart wants what the heart wants.

Broken heart

Listen to “Ex-Factor” by Lauryn Hill. When she says:

It could all be so simple
But you’d rather make it hard
Loving you is like a battle
And we both end up with scars
Tell me, who I have to be
To get some reciprocity
No one loves you more than me
And no one ever will

Those scars? They may not be visible to the naked eye, but they’re there. Neither of them can even look at each other without giving away what’s in those hearts. Both parties sustain battle scars, but they both keep walking right back into that thing. He won’t let go. She can’t.

Listen on:

I keep letting you back in
How can I explain myself?
As painful as this thing has been
I just can’t be with no one else
See I know what we’ve got to do
You let go, and I’ll let go too
‘Cause no one’s hurt me more than you
And no one ever will

It was once said that she could move to Jupiter — he’d still find her. That’s true. He loves her. She loves him. True love knows no distance. True love can hurt just as badly as betrayal on it’s the greatest level.

Sigh. Love.
