No matter what we have lost in life, we should not get upset about it because when one door closes, another door will always open. That’s one of the law of life. Whenever something is taken away from us, it means something good is on its way to us. We need to have enough of patience to wait and see it. If you feel you have lost everything, take a look at what you still have and compare it with others who don’t have it. Aren’t you lucky? This is another reason for being thankful. Reflect it.
However, the question I want to raise in this article is ‘why did we loss it in the first place?’. Perhaps your answer will because you didn’t take care of it well or because you took it for granted. I look at it this way: we didn’t need it, that’s why we lost it in the first place. Nothing will ever leave us as long as we need it in our life. They will exist as long as we need to learn something out of it. Once we have learned the lesson, those things will leave us and something else will come to teach us something new.
If you have lost something it means you can handle it because nothing will come to your life more than what you can handle. That’s the law of grace. Perhaps you will say but there are people who cannot handle loss, for example, when someone’s business goes bankrupt, there are cases of suicide. Well, actually they can handle it. They have the ability to handle and deal with it. They just believed they could not handle it and misused their own free will and killed themselves. The truth is, whatever situation we are going through in life, we can deal with it. We need to look deep inside of us, and follow what our heart says.
If you believe you cannot handle your loss, don’t worry, because there are things you can do to regain your self confidence and move on to the next level in your life. First of all, you need to take the focus out of your self and put it outward. Do some selfless service with those who needs help and love more than you do. If you look around, I guarantee you will find people who are less fortunate than you. That should give your a reason to appreciate what you have and not worry about your losses.
Second, seek a professional counselor who can help you see things clearly. There are many professionals out there. Check your yellow pages and call your local information services center. They can provide you with a list of people or non profit organizations who offer this services. Remember, no matter what we loss in life, when one door closes another door opens. It’s really an opportunity to see life in a new light. Use your free will wisely.
