As human beings, I think we are naturally hoarders. We tend to hang on to things be they material things or intangible things like relationships. People we love, for instance, we like to keep them close and we like to keep them forever. But, as life is wont to do, it never acts the way you want it to. So ‘things’ happen and we lose our stuff. We lose our friends and people we love. That’s just the way life is.
Life is also how we deal with those loses. Cry our eyes out, sure. Suffer the heart ache, sure. But never, never should our loses stop us. Just as we learn as kids to get up after a fall, we pick ourselves up, dust off our bottoms and dry up our tears and keep going.
