What you lose

She was the greatest thing that had ever happened to him. She believed in him when no one else did. He had never been loved, not even by his parents. She saw him and thought he was worth saving; unfortunately she was wrong. She was love, he was hate. As much as she wanted to save him, he came undone and that is that. They got married, they had two kids who were hers and never his. And then, after endless days of indifference…he lost her. The hate buried deep inside his heart weighed down the love that had never been given to him early on. The love any child craves was lost forever.

I guess you lose what was never meant to be yours. He never deserved her. He did try to hurt her when he found out how loving she could be. He tried to hurt his own kids as well. But in the end he only ended up hurting himself and lost the greatest joy in life: love. Sometimes we can’t believe what we lost but then if you take a step back at what was lost, you realize it had to happen. He had to live in hate without taking anyone with him. He was not worthy of unconditional love. He couldn’t even recognize it when it was right in front of him. What he lost says a lot about who he was. He ended up alone without love.

So when someone or something in your life has been taken or lost, stop and think if it’s truly negative or simply what was meant to be. What you lose says a lot about who you are. Those that stay in the relationship because they don’t want to lose the other. Those that have a job they hate but stay because they’re afraid to step outside the box. Or those that remain silent because they are afraid others will lose respect for them. They might not have lost what they so carefully protected but what they have lost is themselves, the love, the joy and pretty much life itself. What you lose speaks loudly about who you are. The willingness to lose what is wrong is worthy of my respect. Tori says: “I’m not sure who’s fooling who here, as I’m watching your decay.” Those that seem to have it all and have lost nothing seem “complete” but they decay by not staying true to what is right. The greatest sadness is that they don’t even know it. And they end up losing the greatest pleasure human beings are given: living life. Be proud of who you are and if you’re not, it’s never too late to start over and do things right. And to do that, you’ll lose everything that is not worth having in the first place. Then and only then will you enjoy the living.
