What we’ve got
It’s true that we don’t know what we’ve got until we lose it, but it’s also true that we don’t know what we’ve been missing until it arrives.
Many a times we only realize things exist after we lose it. Same goes with human beings. Only when we’ve lost our loved ones, do we really reflect on what’s going on and treasure others more. Why wait till it’s too late? Either that or one has to face death at least once to learn to treasure life more and live it to the fullest.
Of course on the other hand, when one door closes, another opens. Thus, sometimes, we have to go through the bad in order to appreciate the good.
However, sometimes, one just has to go through the experiences and learn on their own. Lessons that don’t hurt, don’t teach.
