Loss, of whatever sort, is something we all try to avoid. Fear of losing some thing or person that we value, can control, and even overshadow, our existence. However, loss is inevitable in life – in fact in many ways it is what drives us forward. Learning to see some advantages in losses can be helpful, and can even bring a positive influence.
LOSS MAKES YOU CREATIVE
If everything happened just the way we want it, then we would coast along without ever testing ourselves, finding out how strong we are or how many talents and ideas we can come up with. When what you have relied upon has been taken away from you, you are thrown back on your powers of invention. Sometimes the end result turns out far better than the original, and can be exciting and gratifying.
LOSS MAKES ROOM FOR BETTER THINGS
Often we cling to what is familiar, believing that it’s right for us, when it is past its sell-by date. In the long run this would drag us down, even destroy us. If you lose something you thought was ‘forever’ it can feel devastating, but when you look back after a few months or years you may realise that what came along to take its place was actually much better, and you feel thankful.
LOSS MAKES YOU APPRECIATE WHAT YOU HAVE
When you lose a person or thing that you value, it can be a wake-up call. We all have so many gifts and are so fortunate in a hundred different ways. However, it’s all too easy to take everything for granted, not enjoying our blessings. If you have experienced loss you are in a better position to enjoy what you gain.
LOSS GIVES YOU GREATER UNDERSTANDING OF OTHERS
True, great loss such as bereavement, can be very isolating at first. But eventually even such losses make for a deeper awareness, and an ability to empathise with the suffering of others. If you are kind, thoughtful and supportive, think about it – isn’t this at least partly because you’ve struggled yourself? What you’ve gone through has enriched you, and in turn can enrich the world.
LOSS BRINGS SPIRITUAL AWAKENING
When we have all we want in life, the material world can seem like everything. Who needs to ponder questions about life after death, and whether there is any such thing as spiritual existence when this existence is so good? Sometimes it’s only when the ordinary world lets us down that we start to look beyond. Then life can take on true meaning.
