Let them go!
You know you are going to lose them, but all you do is be there beside them whenever they need you. Because you know that they matter to you, but you forgot that they might hurt you badly in the future. What if they don't choose to stay in your life and fly away from you? That will indeed rip your heart out, but this time you won't do anything except blame yourself for the crime you never did. You will blame yourself for being beside someone who matters to you, but is blaming yourself fair enough? Maybe not, but the heart beating inside you will force you to blame yourself; because that heart is the one who will be bleeding, not you, but don't forget to remind yourself that this isn't your fault. And this isn't the fault of your heart for loving someone unconditionally. Not getting love in return hurts, but what kind of love it is which doesn't hurt? Does that kind of love even exist in this world? Love is something that comes with pain and sacrifices, and thus, we can't blame anyone. Let some people go away if they want to because we can't force someone to stay. Let that heart bleed, but don't let that heart force you to blame yourself, because the happiness you experience while in love surely doesn't come for free. So, don't blame that love because at least you loved someone with all of your heart; at least you met someone who can fill your heart with love. What do you want more than this? Maybe someone out there doesn't even get to experience this, but you got! So, be happy in loving them! If they are going away from you, let them go because seeing them happy will give a strange satisfaction, which no one can give you.
So, let them go! Let them fly! And don't hate them for not staying!
