No matter how much we try to deny the fact that soul mates exist, deep inside we know that there is someone, somewhere, waiting for us.

We have been told again and again, that a soul mate will walk into our life. You know it will happen because it is simply a matter of right place and the right time.

Human beings are emotionally complicated creatures who don’t know how and when to shut lock and doors and realize that it is the right time to let the sunshine come in. When situations are complicated, we tend to make it more complicated. Relationships fail not only because of the wrong person but they also fail because you are yet to become the right person.

Your Past Stops You from Moving Ahead

You have been hurt before and you are trying to be more cautious than before. Your attempts at finding love are sabotaged by your past experiences. So what do you do when your soul mate walks into your life at the worst possible time? Will you accept them and try to make things right or if you’ll let them go and wait for things to be alright before you can start over?

Letting Go Is the Only Solution

When you find the right person and yet you cannot love them the way they deserve to be loved. You have locked yourself at a place from where no one but only you can save yourself. You refuse to come out of that place, accept this new person and the fondness and you know that if this doesn’t resolve, then it is the time to let them go.

You Engulf Yourself in an Ocean of Regrets

Letting someone go is the most complex decision that you can make. The worst part is that your regrets of the past now mix with your regrets of the fact that could have been your chance for a better life. The problem with letting someone go is the fact that you have been in love with them and now it is you who turned a complex situation into an even bigger complex situation.

You Don’t Want to Take a Chance

You meet the right person but you are still living in a shell. Your sacrifices for the past relationship end up making you cautious. You don’t want to make a decision in haste that may affect your life after 5 years. You cannot give up on your dreams and ambitions although you know that this is the right person for you.

You Wish If They Waited a Few Years

You live in a state of mind that this is the worst time to be in a relationship. So when that right person walks in, you wish if you could hold them for a little longer time, tell them to wait right here for a while and you’ll be back.

You Can’t Let Your Emotions Go Away

And then when you can feel butterflies in your stomach and goose bumps all the time in that person’s presence. You just want these emotions to go away. That strong your regret is for your past.

Meeting the right person at the wrong time happens because you two are at the different stages of life. You have different career goals and life choices. You may be living in a sea of regrets you that doesn’t mean that you’ll leave your life midway to start something new.
