Better to have loved and lost…

“It’s better to have loved and lost, then to never have loved at all.”  Yeah right!!!!  Who the hell wrote that?  I have loved so many things in my life the but the only thing I could not live without is my lovely wife and son.  The only thing I can always count on is coming home to a warm smile, hug and kiss from my four best friends (two of them are four legged).  I can’t bear to see a family torn apart for any reason.  So I guess I would rather not know what love felt like than to lose the love I have.

    It would kill me too if I lost the loves I have in my life right now. But looking back I have loved and lost, friends, family, pets, and I consider myself blessed to have known those special people or animals in my life. I think it really makes you appreciate life and loved ones. It’s never fun when you lose someone, so tell them as often as possible how special they really are. I would rather love and lose then to never love at all. Love is a great feeling and wouldn’t want to go through life without it!!!

    I feel for the most part like Nikki does. If you never lose anything I’m not sure you’d appreciate the good things. I’ve lost but I’m glad I had who I did. I miss my Grandma the most. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of her more times that I can even count. I’m grateful for all her unconditional love. No matter what, she was there for me and she never judged me or condemned me.

    I’ve had the best pets ever. I know pets are different but love is love. RIGHT??

    There are a few people who I have lost and still think of and will probably never “get over” but at least I have memories of them. If I had never had them, I wouldn’t have those either so sometimes, sitting in a ray of sunshine and thinking of those times, I do smile. It takes a long to get that “daydream” smile but it does come.

    So, I guess, for me, it’s better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all.

    I could not imagine life without my children, the are the love of my life. I think LOVE is great, but at times, in relationships, that love fades away, and you no longer have the butterflies when you kiss, or no longer look at then way you did 9 years ago. How you you get that feeling back?. The love for pets is hard to lose as well. The love lost from a love one that is now gone, that feeling seems like a part of you has ended, and will never be strong enough to go on in life. Friendship love is great, but when that certain someone no longer accepts you,. it hurts. So grab on to a really good friends and keep.

    So please tell your family, friends, daily you love them, and make sure they know it. Love you Nicole!!! MUAH!!!!!!!!!!

    I am in the camp of “loved and lost” is better than “never loved.” I’ve loved and lost. When I discovered love (I mean the love between adult couples), I knew why people say that saying. Even though I may never be “there” again, I don’t regret stopping there during my journey.

    On the other hand, maybe if I’d never experienced it I wouldn’t know what I was missing, and I’d be happy with that too. I think most people figure out how to be happy with whatever situation they find themselves in, in the long run.

    I also think it’s better to have loved and lost because like Joy said, you don’t appreciate things until they are gone. Family, friends, and pets included. I can’t imagine life without my family, but I’m so grateful for the time I do have with them because you never know how long or short it might be.
