Losses Are Gains


Always Keep In Mind That Not Everything You Lose Is A Loss. “Everything that you lose is a step that you take.” Swift, Taylor

When things start to break apart in front of our eyes, we frequently try to lessen the impact by holding on to the fragments of what once was rather than letting them go. We will cling to people and our emotions well past their sell-by dates instead of letting them go. We will make an effort to persuade ourselves that we should remain in situations that we know we have outgrown. Because letting them go seems so unpleasant and risky, we will continue to act in roles, settings, and mindsets that are obviously ineffective. We argue that we fight because maintaining these situations, relationships, and places would feel like a waste of our time and energy. But in reality, you can only delay the inevitable for so long before fate takes control.

What is meant to depart will always leave

However, the things that are supposed to arrive always do as well. The things that are meant to endure will as well. This is not to imply that we cannot experience regret over the things we treasured and gave much thought to. To suggest that we shouldn’t give ourselves the time to think, feel, and do all of that is not to say. But while we can, we must maintain our viewpoint, therefore that’s what we’re saying. We miss out on the possibilities ahead of us if we concentrate too much on the conclusions. We overlook the possibilities that an empty space can bring about. The shrillness of terror overpowers the hushed cries of hope. It would be healthier for us if we allowed ourselves to experience the sorrow while still moving on in the direction of tomorrows that are better and more in line with our values.

Even though not everything happens for a cause, everything is always in the right place at the right time. We’ll start to realise that everything makes sense when we take a step back and consider everything that happened. We were compelled to turn around because of the destroyed bridges. We have to move past the broken love. The communities we outgrew compelled us to look for a place to call home in areas where we could really feel secure. Not all of the things we lose are losses. Everything we were supposed to hold on to all along makes room for those relationships, moments, careers, emotions, and locations that slip through our grasp. We only need to have the courage to accept them.

“Resilience” is now PUBLISHED!!!! Knowing yourself, your thought patterns, emotional reactions, and go-to behaviours, is the foundation of good mental and emotional health.

    It is how we look at it right? Something changes to be replaced by something else hopefully better.

    Hope you are good? Gary
