Ask Jackson – Why Can’t I Let Go

Dear Jackson,

In a nut shell, been with guy for 10yrs, gone through 3 cheats that I know of. The most recent one I ended up sharing him, stupid I know, and still I can’t find myself to let go and I do not know why. He says he can’t let me go and doesn’t want to see me with anyone else, selfish is what he is, I know. My mind tells me this isn’t right and that I need to get out of this, but my heart is weak, I love him but I know I do not deserve this. One foot is leading toward moving on, the other is still hanging in there.

Signed,
Why Can’t I Let Go

Dear Why Can’t I Let Go,

The title of this “Why Can’t I Let Go” is telling me that you want to get out of this relationship. After being with someone for 10 years you can become very comfortable. When you picture your ideal relationship you don’t want someone who is going to cheat on you or expect you to share him with another woman. There is no commitment if a man will allow you to share him with another woman. You said “he can’t let go and doesn’t want to see you with anyone else” but yet he has seen himself with other women every time he cheated. The more you allow him to do the more he will do. Trust your intuition. How long have you been telling yourself things will get better and they haven’t. Days? Months? Years? You deserve a real man, one that is going to truly love and respect you. After 10 years of putting up with a man like this you clearly have a big heart and deserve to be loved and respected. Follow your heart and what is common sense, you cannot create something that is not there. Don’t cheat yourself. Realize and accept the truth of your relationship, where it’s going, and let go.

Best Wishes,
Jackson

P.S. There is an article I wrote a while back on Trusting Your Intuition check it out it may also help you with your decision.

About The Author
Rurally raised, yet metropolitan minded. A casual author and somewhat of a perfectionist in all realms. Learning lessons but staying honest. Because he is shameless, he is an open book and because he is sharp, he is self-restrained. Full of emotion, but always rational. Humble, but quite often ostentatious. He comes off as a walking, talking dichotomy which makes him absolutely human, just like you. Bereola is renowned by gentlemen current and past alike. He has spent the vast majority of his life traveling and researching etiquette and applying it in society.
