Once and again

Was over at my friend’s place tonight. We had some red wine and pizza and, after a while, started discussing relationships and in particular breakups in long distance relationships.

Yeah, you better believe it! Us guys, apart from the usual male bonding thing, do also discuss such sensitive issues. This is not something only women can lay claim to.

Incidentally, all three of us present had experienced break ups in long distance relationships before, some more recent than others. And we were able to relate to the frustrations, the sense of loss and the subsequent depression which comes along with it.

The only advice I can offer in this situation is that time is the best medicine. Old clich� but true. However, before the time comes when we can truly let go, we should not drown our sorrows – whether literally or not – but strive to live our lives to the fullest. Time does not wait, for any of us.

Opportunities, once past, may not come by again.

    When the door of happiness closes, another opens, but often times we look so long at the closed door that we don’t see the one which has been opened for us. It’s true that we don’t know what we’ve got until we lose it, but it’s also true that we don’t know what we’ve been missing until it arrives.

    The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way. The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past, you can’t go on well in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.

    and embrace her tight, and tell her how much you love her, because you are only a friend.”
