Maybe it’s true, that we don’t know what we have till we’ve lost it.But, maybe it’s also true that we don’t know what we are missing till we find it.
In life, it’s part of human nature btw, to treasure something only after one has lost it. Perhaps it’s the shock of losing it that triggers the thought; or perhaps it’s the longing for it. Whichever it is doesn’t matter. The point is not to learn to treasure something only when it’s too late.
The closer something is to you, the more difficult it is to see it. And we often take it for granted.
