A good friend of mine loves using this phrase on me 'You Live, You learn', and recently i've been growing to love the phrase too.
His theory in life is that we should do whatever we want to do, as stupid, as crazy and as insane as it might seem. If at that moment, that is what you want, GO FOR IT.
When i got my heart broken, and ran to him crying, i remembered telling him about all the things i wish i did. All the things i wish i did not do. All the things I wish I said and all the things I wish i had not said.
His reply was 'Did you regret the time spent with him though?'
'No' i replied
'Did you learn from this?' 'Yes'
'Then what are you complaining about?' His theory in life is that, all our choices were made the best we could with the information that we were provided at that time. So regretting a choice that we once wanted is silly. What we should do is to learn from it. Grow from it. So the next time we are presented with the same situation, we are better equipt to handle it better and make better choices.
I understand his reasoning. I too know that we cannot be truly happy, if we do not open up ourselves to embrace the pain that might or might not come along with it.
After all, life is like a roller coaster. If you want to feel the highs, you also need to withstand falling from that height.
So I guess, thank you.
Thank you for all the lows because it meant that once upon a time, you gave me such highs too.
