There are two types of loss - what might have been
, and what could never
. My reason
and beliefs dictate
that the later
is always the case -
it doesn't help much. Loss of any sort hurts
- the only question is when
is the discovery of loss. Even the discovery of a 'written off
' loss hurts.
The greatest - and hardest loss is the loss of a dream.
They aren't lost
easily. They often take more with them than they offered. Is it possible
to lessen the loss - to ease the pain?
Whatever the case, emotional pain is something that we all feel. It
is not something that is inflicted upon us. It is our response to
stimuli. It is rarely ever fair or reasonable to blame
anyone (including oneself) for the pain of loss.
Still, all things considered, there may be (or have been) some way
to reduce the pain of loss. It is never a wrong thing to wish or desire
to reduce your own pain (I am a hedonist). I do wish it hurt less.
