All of life is a series of ups, downs, ins, and outs – and one of the major truths of existence is the fact that “there is no permanence”. With that being said, one of the unfortunate trials we must face during our journey on this planet is loss. Whether it be losing someone we are close to, losing at a career attempt, losing a relationship with someone you love…loss is never really the fun part of the adventure that is life – however, sometimes you must lose in order to find.
When we lose, we have no choice but to step back and evaluate what lead up to the loss and why it happened. There are always variables, because when it comes to losing in situations that involve other people – you can’t control someone else’s reality, you can only control yours. However, everyone serves as a mirror to an aspect of yourself that you may not have actualized, so when someone disappoints you – you must look within yourself, instead of placing the blame on the other person. What was it within you that caused the situation to occur? What have you not identified about you that needed fixing?
We will continue to attract people into our lives that serve as teachers to “peel back the layers of the onion” until we reach our core, and have realized the deepest level of who we are. Look at each bit of adversity as an extra “feather” being placed into your “wings” that will eventually give you the ability to soar past the “static” and have crystal clear reception on the “frequency” you are meant to be on.
When you have nothing left to lose, what you’re truly left with is YOU. Loss is merely a tool for evaluation, organization, determination and actualization towards being the best you that you can possibly be.
