    It's true in my case, 1975 I fell in love at first sight the end of my senior year, we dated all summer, but let each other go in the fall, he was off to college and I had to report for duty in the Navy. We lost touch for 35 years and in 2010 we found each other he was widowed and I was divorced. When we met face to face time melted and we picked up where we left off, now we are together for our twilight years.

      Very cool ...  sweet too.    Thanks for posting such a lovely story!

      "It's true in my case" ... I disagree, it's always true.

    It means  letting that person or animal decide for themselves if they wish to be in your life. Holding on to someone who doesn't wish to be with you causes pain for both parties. Clinging to someone who doesn't want you can only carry you so far before something has to break. Letting someone go means they can choose to come back or not. Which frees you as well.

      The popular meme you see all over the internet   is attributed to the author  Richard Bach, but it is not his quote.

    In some cases they are yours. Sometimes a person makes the dumb mistake of going back to a relationship that was never meant to be. The one who did the releasing could have let go because they had no other recourse but they talked the person into coming back.

    If a girl decides she wants to leave me, then comes back, she gets the boot straight out the front door again, without a single word. I'm nobody's second, and haven't got time for people who haven't figured their lives out yet. If a girl feels like she can freely jump back and forth between two guys, she deserves neither, and nobody, until she grows up. Men need to stop acting like such tools for women, its part of what's allowed many of them to become such entitled brats. A guy needs to maintain his self respect. If he doesn't, how can he expect those same women to respect him? <--- This is what men need to teach women.

    It's very true. Basically, it's saying that you shouldn't smother someone you love.
