Life and Losses

We all had, though it has variations. Sometimes it's our dreams, sometimes our grades, our loved ones, our friendships, property, trust, belongings or anything. And these losses have an impact. Huge impact. We start judging, blaming, we procrastinate things, we have stupid random thoughts and what not. And gradually in the process, we lose ourselves. Hence, leading us to the ultimate loss. Then sorrow, depression, hopelessness take us to an entirely different "us", which we never wished to be.

But what's Life?
Ever thought of it? Life does not mean the sole existence of an individual. Life is all about an individual's thoughts, expression, his beliefs, way of taking things, positivity and applying the same when required. And as they say, if you do positive, you get positive. Believe me there's nothing like that. Do things with positivity, but don't expect the same with the outcomes. Try and learn to except whatever it comes, because "Expectations is the mother of all sorrows". We do make mistakes, we lie, we regret, we understand and we learn. We learn the practicalities of life. And if we are bought into this world, we'll breathe, we'll be taught, we'll grow, we'll achieve, we'll loose and we'll die. Things are materialistic and so are we and our good times. They'll come and go, nothing is permanent in this world. The need is just to accept it maturedly. And as Sir, Diego Marchi said that "In life, we all have an unspeakable secret, an irreversible regret, an unkept promise, an unheard request, an irreplaceable loss, an unreachable dream, and an unforgettable first love. Still life is all about acceptance and happiness. Life doesn't stop, it goes on."

Things may always go wrong with you, but don't be carried away with that. Try an involve yourself in something different. It is your life, you have to live with it. And as I said, "things are materialistic, so are the losses".
