Think I Better Let It Go... Looks Like Another Love TKO Part II

We all know the words to the song of the Late Great Teddy Pendergrass "Tried to take control of the Love... Love took control of me... Cause you lose all thought, sense of time... and have a change of mind. Takin the bumps and bruises... of all the things of being a two-time loser... Tryin to hold on, faith is gone... It's just another sad song. I think I better let it go... looks like another love T.K.O.

How do we know when it's time to let go? Or should we stay in the relationship?

We are all searching for love... and sometimes we think we have found it. But what happens when the new car smell wears off? Hopefully all is well... but what if you realize that this isn't the person for you? Should you stay in the relationship?

You don't want to hurt the other person... but staying in the relationship is unfair to you and the other person. You are wasting your time in a relationship that you have mentally checked out of and the other person is denied an opportunity to find a person that will love them the way they deserve to be loved. It may hurt that person but hopefully they will see in the end that it is best to end the relationship. It will be more painful if you start to neglect, mentally or physically abuse the person or cheat.

Once you have mentally checked out is it possible to check back in? Will counseling help? If you fall out of love is it possible to fall back in? What if children are involved? Should you stay together for the children? Should you stay together because of money? You may not love the person but you make a good team, two incomes are better than one, or maybe that person supports you. There are plenty of relationships/marriages that are just business partnerships... is this the type of relationship you want? I know a lot of people may settle for this. What's Love Got To Do With It???

Maybe it is possible to mentally check back in! We all think the grass is greener on the other side. But who really wants to get back into the dating world. Do you feel like getting to know a new person? I like brocolli... do you like brocolli? We all see people every day that may seem interesting to us... but what drama do they have? What happens when the new car smell wears off with a new person? Are you right back in the same boat? Or maybe you will find true love.

Whatever you decision... just be sure to be honest with your partner... don't waste time... if it's not going to work... I think You Better Let Go... But that's only Trey's Opinion
