Meant to Lose

meant-to-lose

We lose everyone in our life. It is given, there is only the solo exit option.

The more we give, the more we end up losing. We can’t take any of it with us and there is no rhyme or reason.

So why should we even give, why share, love, laugh, and grow together; when we are going to end up losing it all.

You pray that there is a “grand plan”, we say that they are in a better place.

No one knows.

What we actually end up doing is becoming ok with missing them. We get better at not laughing with them. We just learn to live without. Without their support, their love, their humor, their strength. We all just grow up.

What a sad life it is. To constantly learn to live without.

At some point you just throw up your hands. Give up, you’re tired of learning to live without. You try to reassure yourself that this isn’t it. This CAN'T be it. What a horrible life to live, if there is only the zero sum game, if you are here only to lose.

What else can matter, if the only thing that really matters, the only experiences that really matter are always lost.

Unfortunately in life, we lose the ones we love.

There is an exit we take alone that leaves others behind in agony.

But one day we will hopefully see them again...this time healthy.

This life is a gift. Live each day to the fullest.

They say there is a plan...let your life flow and you will find yours.

Don't be sad ....be happy about the moments you were given to share together.
