"i'm still in love with you, but i have to let you go. it's for the greater good". i don't know if you find this noble or heroic, but for me, this is a lame excuse. why let go if you're still in love? love is supposed to be strong and withstand all odds, right?
what about you? what do you think about this line? noble or stupid?
I think its a nice way of saying:
I still love you; but I love this other person just a bit more. Sorry.
Love is supposed to be strong and with stands all odds, right?
No! This is the stuff for from soap operas, romance novels, and television/movies for the masses.
There is nothing noble about this line because there are plenty of them that people use when they want to thing they are "lovingly" dumping someone. This includes, "We have grown apart," "It's not you--it's me," and "Another time, another place."
So all these people who have been spoon-fed all this crap over the years will finally come to the harsh reality that love ain't all that. You can hook up with Prince Charming and later find out that he is one big toad in your living room. Or can find your Princess who later turns out to be high maintenance, and nothing in the world you can do will please her.
When it comes to love, you first need to open your eyes. Is this person someone who will go the distance with you, or are you just settling for this person because they are available?
Open your eyes real wide . . .
Anyone who says this is not being truthful. They may be trying to go easy in how they breakup with someone but the end result is the same. We use the term 'in love' and 'I love you' much too easily. Let's save it for when we can really mean it, and live by it.
Sounds to me like someone who doesn't want people to think they're mean or heartless. Sometimes, letting someone down gently is a massive smack in the mouth. The trouble is "I don't love you any more" just sounds so harsh. Sparing feelings sometimes, just tramples all over them. I am sure this person was not worthy of you and that something far more special is just around the corner
distance plays a part. When one has a change of heart and wants to move far back (overseas) to where their parents are but still loves you and wants you to come, it changes a lot of things and the phrase gains its validity.
