When a cherished loved one dies, it hits you really hard and makes you think about what really matters in this life. Kids have lost their parents at a young age, and siblings have lost their brothers and sisters in the most tragic of ways.
These moments are devastating, but they are also sobering realities that life is short and that every precious moment is to be savored and cherished.
Losing Someone Important In Your Life Turns Your World Upside Down
The big gap loved ones leave in your life is usually hard or impossible to fill, and you start thinking back and wondering what you could have done if given another chance to say something to them.
That's how many people end up regretting that they didn't tell their loved ones how much they loved them when alive.
Life is short and unpredictable, and it can be snuffed out in just a moment.
All of a sudden, the person you really care about could be taken from your life. Tomorrow, as they say, is promised to no one.
People get used to routines, and they never really prepare for this moment because they usually feel that there's enough time to show love and affection.
But You Should Live Each Day Like It's Your Last
That means you should treat some things with lots of urgencies. Saying I love you, for instance, is something you should say to those you care about at every chance you get.
At the end of the day, what will truly matter is the people you loved and cared about and how readily you expressed this feeling to them when they were around.
What Are We Without Love?
If you have no love in your life, then you practically have nothing. You can have lots of power and influence, or a good-paying job, and lots of admiration from strangers, but love is more important.
During their last moments, most people don't think back on how good their careers were, but the love they received from those they loved.
Your position at work will be taken by someone else, but your place in a loved one's heart will always be yours till the end of days. And that is what truly matters.
So, You Should Appreciate The Love You Have In Your Life
Many people yearn for it all their lives and never get it.
When someone is lying on their hospital beds, terminally ill, the loving people gathered around don't care how much money they made, their political affiliations, their religion, or many other things we usually hold in high regard in this life.
What matters is the bond of love that kept you together.
And so, if you love someone, make sure they know it because you might not have that chance tomorrow.
