I was once approached by a friend who said I was self-absorbed. I had no idea, but I was building walls, throwing up defenses, and putting on armor so no one could hurt me again.

5 Signs The One You Let Go Was “The One”

1) You Are Still Willing To Help Them.

If you notice how quickly you agree to help someone that you thought was out of your life, this could be an indication that they should never have left.

If you drop everything to run help this person, you must care a lot, especially if you risk a present relationship or job. Your heart is still in it.

2) You Have Adapted Many Of Their Traits.

If you find yourself doing things just like them or picking up mannerisms, then you may probably have let them slip through your fingers. If they have this much influence on you, then maybe they are meant to be in your life. Take notes on this one.

3) You’ve Never Loved So Strongly.

Love is a chemical, let’s face it. You experience different amounts of this chemical according to how strong love is. If you can’t seem to get over a “high” of love, then you may be moving past the wrong lover. This one could be the one!

4) You Can’t Stop Thinking About Them.

Every day and every night, you think about them. Yes, they were all wrong for you, but they fill every corner of your mind. Maybe, just maybe, they weren’t that wrong for you after all.

Thinking about a person all the time, even when you try not to, is a huge indicator that you miss them and need their influence in your life. In some way, this person had an impact on your life, and you shouldn’t have let them go.

5) You Are Still Impressed By Them.

If you have never met anyone who is as impressive in action as the one you let go, then you are in trouble.

Many times, people let loved ones go just to find out they will never have such great treatment again. It’s sad and it’s a sure indication that you did lose true love.
