It is saddening to realize that you do not always appreciate what you have got until you finally lose it. It is no news that so many people do not understand the beauty of their relationships until the relationships ends. This is what makes moving on after the fall out of every relationship a very difficult feat to achieve. People are not going to be there forever, no matter how much you wish them to stay. People end up leaving you by either choice or chance. Chance could be probably eventualities like death, misunderstandings, miscommunication and many others.
“One doesn’t recognize the really important moments in one’s life until it is too late.” – Agatha Christie
The people you end up enjoying a lifetime with are unrecognizable at first glance. That is why it is of necessity to make the most of every relationship you find yourself. You can not continue to take people for granted and only remember them in retrospect and then think you are taking advantage of all they have to offer. People have more to offer than you can possibly imagine.You will not know what these advantages are if you do not appreciate the relationship itself.
“Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born” – Anais Nin
Every healthy relationship should always add something worthwhile to you. It is left to you to find out what your relationship has to offer and begin to take advantage of whatever it is because that relationship will definitely not last forever. I am not saying you manipulate people or only build a relationship on the basis of what you stand to gain. No healthy relationship works that way.
You only have a lifetime to make impact that will touch generations. You can only do that with the aid of your banking on the healthy relationships you have made during that lifetime.
Regret is a very bad feeling to have when you could have done something about it. Enjoy having the people you have around you now, it might just surprise you to wake one day and realize they are no more there. It is only the memories you made while they were around that makes the loss easier to live with.
“Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.” – Sydney J. Harris
