It is a very difficult situation when your state of mind is such that you want to hold on to someone and at the same time letting go seems the most suitable option.
How do you tackle this? If you think from other person's interest then that conflicts with your state of mind.
Do we assume certain things and hence are not able to make a decision? If these assumptions are kept aside..perhaps we will have more clarity. Or again, is it just a way to give ourselves explanation?
