…consider that perhaps you were only ever supposed to be his or her Angel.
This is probably true if the relationship was a push/pull, problematic struggle from the beginning. And yet, you felt magnetically drawn to the person and couldn’t let go. You looked so deeply into the mirror that you fell in love.
There will be times that you are brought into someone’s life to hold only the mirror up and not your heart. Show them their magnificence, and then let go.
