Life is a game. How we deal with it and face it, it will depend on each one of us. How we play the game smartly, vigorously or carelessly, it is our choice, it is our decision that we take every day.
“What most people need to learn in life is how to love people and use things instead of using people and loving things.”-anonymous
In the game, we meet another player, he, she, they, play their game. Emotions developed, affection appears, and love set in, hurt turns up, then pain arise.
We supposedly love people and play the game, why we tend to do the other way around. Use things to love, help, and care for people but we got it wrong. We prefer things more than people, we care for something not feelings, we respect currency rather than wisdom, we choose famous than sharing.
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Maya Angelou quotes (American Poet, b.1928)
The time we start caring for things rather than people, we will slowly lose our hearts, passion, compassion, and feelings. We become heartless, cold, and remote person. People will take distance; they prefer not to get hurt. And in the end of day, we shocked to find ourselves alone, we’re not connected with others, no one care, no one understand and the day feel so empty, the things that matter is not important anymore, the possessions is not pleased anymore, we longed for acceptance, caring, touch and we look for love.
Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same.- Anonymous
Life offers us many seasons. Season for friendship, for love, understanding, patience, challenge, and season for triumph. Whatever the season we playing, we shall cherish them, treasure the people we met along the journey, appreciate the lesson that the life gave, value every moment and be grateful for all, because after all we chose to play the game and love the people. Indeed.
