Life and our loved ones

Life. Life is a very interesting thing. The more I go on in life, the more I see, feel, witness and experience things. The good things are great, but the bad…the bad hurts. You feel it in your chest. Sometimes even in your heart.

Why is it that the bad things leave scars inside us? Is it because that’s what makes us grow? What makes us stronger? Yes, that’s why. Otherwise how would you change? If you can’t have something inside you that forces you to become a better person, how would you be a better person? It has to come from within. But still. The hard and difficult times, the ups and the downs, are painful. They make you question a lot of things in life. Like thinking that your loved ones are just going to always be there is a wrong way to look at things, you must change that. I have realized that this is not real life. People come and go. So you have to do everything you can to show them you care. You might think that they know, and that you don’t need to say it. That’s not right. You have to remind them as much as you can. That’s important. It is important that you pick up that phone and ask about your loved ones, because when the time comes you will wish you did. With the pain of losing someone, you will have the pain of guilt. Don’t do that to yourself. Pick up the phone and show you care.

This is life. No one lives forever. People go so other people can come. So you have to benefit from the time you have with them now.
Have your priorities straight. Yes work is important, yes your plans for today are important, but what’s more important is the people you love. You don’t have forever to tell them how you feel you have today. That is the closest thing you can guarantee.

You never know what that phone call will mean to that person. It might make their day. Maybe they really needed a reminder that they are loved. You don’t need to know what it will mean to that person. Do it because you want too, not because you have too. Show the people you love how much you love them through action, not words. Be there for people. You don’t live alone. And if you’ve lost someone, you must know that as much as it hurts now, time will heal you. They may be gone, but their soul and their memories will stay with you forever. “Everything will be okay in the end, if it is not okay, it is not the end”-Unknown.
