I think it depends on what you're talking about. Do you mean after a loved one has died, or after a relationship has fallen apart?
I think in that case you should try and remember all the good times in a relationship so that you can move on without resenting the other person, but you should try to move on as quickly as possible - while giving yourself a bit of time to adjust.
It's time to let go when you have done everything one could possible do to make a relationship work, but nothing has changed! After you have sat with your loved one and try to talk about issues that need to be addressed but he/she obviously continue to act as if he/she doesn't care --- it's definitely time to let this person go.
When you know that letting go would be the best for both of you...
Never, because if a person keeps option of letting go in a relationship then he or she would surely use that option one day and what is the grantee that next one would be better one, usually people end up getting worse. One should only let go if a relationship gets physically abusive or there is cheating involved.
thank you for your answers, actually it has been years since we broke up, but then I still have that feeling.
True love never dies, it's natural for you to continue to have an admiration for some of the positive attributes of an individual but you don't have to get involved him them. Look back and see why you broke up, then you might be able to accept it!
thank you macky., maybe it's really for the best of us
When you know you have had enough, truly. Or you feel you are being held back because what you really want in life is something/someone different.
When you have tried your level best to save your relationship and fail every time. When you feel that you could save yourself( might also be your loved one) from getting hurt over and over, I think it's better to let go than to hold on!
