Sometimes, no matter how much experience we have or how talented and gifted we are or how strongly we believe in our Vision, things don’t go our way; a door closes…permanently.

Loss.

We must come to terms with it. Here are 6 quotes to help us do this:

Believe me, every heart has its secret sorrows, which the world knows not, and oftentimes we call a man cold, when he is only sad. –Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Hyperion

 

Look for the gift.   Every experience–even the difficult ones–holds a gift. The gift isn’t found wrapped in pretty paper with a sparkly bow; instead, you find it wrapped within your heartache and sadness. Go ahead. Unwrap it.   It’ll be one of the best gifts you’ve ever received. ~Unknown

 

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of those depths.   ~Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

 

Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in my perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have–life itself. ~Walter Anderson

 

When you lose something in your life, stop thinking it’s a loss for you. It is a gift you have been give so you can get on the right path to where you are meant to go, not to where you think you should have gone. ~Suze Orman

 

When you go through hell, your own personal hell, and you have lost–loss of fame, loss of money, loss of career, loss of family, loss of love, loss of your own identity–and you’ve been able to face the demons that have haunted you, then you learn to appreciate everything that you still do have. ~David Cassidy

 

A reminder: when you are dealing with a loss, reach out to others.   Counselors, religious leaders, and other professionals are trained to help in these situations. Also, friends and loved ones can offer a shoulder to cry on, a sympathetic ear to listen, and a warm hand to hold.

Your Friend and Pep Pal,
