One of the great things about life is that we will constantly be interacting with different people.
Some of them will become important to us, whereas some will drop out of our lives at some point in time. It has been said that, on average, we will interact with and have some sort of a relationship with around two hundred and fifty people throughout the course of our lives.
With the technology available today, that figure may actually be in question. One thing that will not change however, is that we all will lose people at some point in our lives. Knowing that gives us the opportunity to mentally prepare for it so that when it does happen, we can cope with it and also move on with our lives.
If we don’t prepare ourselves beforehand, when we lose someone unexpectedly, it can:
- Cause us to go into a downward spiral emotionally.
- Make us lose perspective of what is truly important.
- Cause us to question our self-worth.
- Slow down our progress towards what we want.
- Affect our daily interactions with other people.
