& lonely feeling when you give up on love & let go of the only person you want to be with you through life. And theres no other choice but to do it when there are no other options left & holding out for hope only brings more pain. I feel defeated.

    Defeat? Admitting defeat is a way of diminishting yourself....It just may be that this so-called defeat is something you can't feel, think, or experience at the moment......Time may actually make you perceive this defeat as a victory with time.....

    I don't even want to know the pain of giving up someone you love, or be reminded of it.

    But I won't ever give up on love itself.

    Give yourself the time you need.

    When love beckons to you, follow him,

    Though his ways are hard and steep.

    And when his wings enfold you yield to him,

    Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.

    And when he speaks to you believe in him,

    Though his voice may shatter your dreams

    as the north wind lays waste the garden.



    For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.

    Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,

    So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.



    Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself.

    He threshes you to make you naked.

    He sifts you to free you from your husks.

    He grinds you to whiteness.

    He kneads you until you are pliant;

    And then he assigns you to his sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for God's sacred feast.



    All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life's heart.



    But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure,

    Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor,

    Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears.

    Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.

    Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;

    For love is sufficient unto love.



    When you love you should not say, "God is in my heart," but rather, "I am in the heart of God."

    And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.

    Marriage as a misnomer.... "Then Almitra spoke again and said, "And what of Marriage, master?" And he answered saying: You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore. You shall be together when white wings of death scatter your days. Aye, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God. But let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow." - Khalil Gibran, The Prophet.

    I always liked the line "For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow." =)

    I'm nearly at the point of letting go of a guy who's been nothing but a selfish jerk to me. But I still love him and it hurts so much.... I just want to give up.

    But at least I still have so much more in my life, not just him. That's what I live for now.

    Love is a gamble and just like gambling, most of the time you are going to lose. Doesn't matter how beautiful you are or how much money you have, everyone will lose eventually in the game of romantic love. But for those who are willing to take a chance, for the risk takers, the rewards can be great. Is it worth taking a chance? Yeah, certainly is. Worth being hurt for? Yes, certainly. The experience and what you learn from it is what counts the most.
