Hello Everyone,

I read some of the questions/answers here and found them really insightful. I thought I would share my dilemma with you too and hopefully get the answer I need to hear.

I know this is going to sound like the repetitive "girl likes boy" story and the truth is, it is but just try to hear me out! I listened to Guruka Singh's talk on relationships a few years ago and it really spoke to me. I loved the message and it made so much sense to me. I tried to live by it. I focused on getting to know myself by meditation and reflection(by writing in my journal). It was wonderful. I was getting to know myself - my spiritual self, my intellectual self and just my overall being but then I lost track. One of my friends started to show a romantic interest in me. He was very kind and it seemed like his caring was genuine. I fell for it and started to really like him. There were the initial "sparks" and everything seemed perfect when we were around each other. We didn't start dating because of our values but we did grow an emotional attachment. As soon as we got over our "smitten" phase, the reality hit. We are both of different backgrounds (culture, religion, etc) and it would never work out. We decided we had to move on. The problem is he has moved on but I haven't been able to. I keep thinking about the past and it is so difficult for me to forget the feelings. What will help?

I try to keep reminding myself of the reality and that usually helps, but every once in a while the feeling comes back and leaves me feeling so empty and sad inside. I just want to let go completely. What can I do? I tried to meditate but I have lost all focus. My mind keeps wandering everywhere like never before. It's pathetic.
