But you come to accept that you'll never be together, but you love them and don't know when to let go

The time to let go is now. If circumstances are working against having a relationship, then don't mske yourself feel any worse! Leave.
BUT... (I'll bet you didn't see this coming...) I once was in a relationship with a very nice lady. Loved her very much. Same for her. We lived quite a bit apart, so we only got to see each other in person rarely. Because of the distance, she and "broke" it off. We became best friends. Promised each other we would always be friends. That was 21 years ago. I've never stopped loving her or caring about her. We still talk today (sent her a text this morning). So even though you both may not have a relationship, who says you have to quit feeling love for someone?
You go on with your life. You find someone else. But friendship like that? Who says THAT has to end? I know I'll never be with this lady, but I've never stopped loving her. She'll always have a special place in my heart.

It's time to let go when it's causing you more pain than happiness.
Sometimes you have to let go of some people... not because you don't care about them or love them, just simply because the pain is too overwhelming to be able remain part of their life anymore
Giving up and not holding on any longer doesn't mean you are weak. It means you are strong enough to let go.
