Dear You, In life sometimes,everything will not go the way you planned. You may not get that much coveted promotion even though you deserved it completely. Someone you trusted with your life may let you down. Someone you love(d) with all your heart may walk away. You may lose a loved one. Worse--you may lose yourself. It is okay to mourn when this happens. It is okay to feel sad. It is okay to retreat into your shell when life gives you a beating. But it is not okay to stay there for longer than is necessary. It is important to come out and FIGHT. It is important to live well. Do things that bring you joy. Life is indeed short. very short. Whatever did not work out, accept it. This was just the way it was meant to be. You will see this for yourself, maybe two years from now. I know . I speak from experience and I speak from a place of deep pain. I have faced it--I have retreated , I have wept but then I have also fought and emerged stronger today, because of it.
