I don’t sympathize with people who don’t regret for their past choices and actions. They do regret but they don’t admit it. They just fool themselves. Because being regretful is part of life. It is in our nature to make mistakes and then feel bad about it, and to take wrong decisions and later wish we hadn’t taken them. Regretfulness is in the human nature. Those who deny of being regretful are either proud bastards or fools.
In life, you can’t always be happy. There are always obstacles in your path that will stop you from being happy. There will be sad moments, tears and grief. Lonely moments, when all you want is to sit in a corner and cry; Moments of depression. But in life, there are always some little moments of happiness. Hidden in plain sight. There will always be moments of laugh, moments of joy, with family, friends, girlfriend or boyfriend, and moments that will make you fly up to the sky; moments that will make you feel infinite! They won’t last forever and they shouldn’t. Because that’s what life is all about, that’s its beauty. So keep your eyes open and make sure you enjoy them.
We are at our most imaginative in our denials of death. How old was he? Did he eat well? Smoke? Take risks? No, well then that’s not me, I will not die. The first step in intellectual and spiritual maturity is the acceptance of our own death.
