“I won’t mind that you’ll never be mine”
Wow. In the swift breeze of a single sentence the author demonstrates the amount of courage it takes to step back and admire someone from a distance. To have such an abundance of love and respect for a single person you make the unbearable decision to let go of the possibility that their heart will ever belong to you. It’s almost as if he is saying: thank you for existing so effortlessly beautiful, thank you for allowing the simple variances of your day to intertwine with my life, thank you for doing whatever you did that was so powerful you swept me off my feet, your actions caused me to be embodied in this surreal power of love and for that I thank you. “I won’t mind that you’ll never be mine” displays the simplicity of appreciating the age old adage of if you love me, let me go.
In some situations the best thing to do is admire the severity of your feelings for each other. Can you love someone whose intentions for you have changed so rapidly you don’t recognize them? Acknowledge that there are people in this world who you can no longer make happy. Understand that there are past lovers existing happily with out your smile or your laugh.There will always be people that we miss whom have completely forgotten about us. Its only human. This is the time to be strong. Realize how much more you are worth than someone who doesn’t need the sunshine of your smile in their life. How much more you deserve than someone who is not concerned about how your Mom’s surgery went or how you last final turned out. In order to forget, one must accept being forgotten.
However, maybe you did love each other but the circumstances of your lives forbid you from indulging in that true happiness. When this occurs, this is the time to be ever stronger. Accept your love for them, appreciate it, allow yourself to feel it. And then finally release it; release them. Because true love is accepting the other persons needs and putting them over your own. True love is seeing someone you love with another person and being grateful that they found someone to complete them, the way they completed you. Sometimes, love is simply not enough. A mother can love her baby, but appreciate someone else can give him the life he deserves. A husband can love his wife, but realize that he does not fill her heart anymore. I can love individuals whose minds I will never cross again. Because I won’t mind that they will never be mine.
