When The Door Of Happiness Closes, Another one Opens.

Maybe we have to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one so that when we finally meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful for that gift. When the door of happiness closes, another opens, but often times we look so long at the closed door that we don't see the one which has been opened for us. Have a nice day from Deeeky.

I can only agree with what you say, Deeeky. Sure, we meet some wrong people, but they leave our lives in the same way they entered, and we move on. Without this test, however, we are unable to say whether "a particular person" is the right one. Be assured though, this "right one" is out there somewhere. I told my friend this, some three years ago, when she was at a stage where she had almost accepted that she would be alone for the rest of her life. A couple of months ago, or so, she met up with this guy whom she'd originally met on the internet and their love for each other is so strong, I can't see them ever parting. So, a happy ending for her... she who had given up on just about everything. There's somebody for everybody, and we all have a little green patch out there... it's just finding and recognising them, or it, for what it is. Brightest Blessings, my friend.

Being alone for any length of time is not nice at all as we all need someone sometimes. We may never get a true soulmate but the next best thing has to do.

Lol.. you speak for yourself, Deeeky, my friend. The next best thing will never do for me! :) I don't mind being alone sometimes... don't get me wrong, I love to share with somebody who believes in similar things to me, and likes to do the same things as I do, but I often need solace, or my own space, as does everybody, I think. However, on occasions, it feels as though a part of you is missing... you're right there, but no way will I ever settle for next best. lol. That doesn't come into my life book at all... next best are friends, not soulmates or partners. I thought I'd found mine, in fact, I'm still convinced I have, but I'm a little wary, as the pain of finding you were wrong, goes too deep! It takes two to realise that you were meant to be as one, but it sometimes takes a little time before you feel the bond of a soulmate. Have a great day.

Being alone is ok to be able to reflect but there are people that can't bear to be away from each other because of the bond being so strong.

Deeeky I have to agree with you totally here I went through 21 years hell of a Marriage till I had the Nerve to say no more and that was when I got Diagnosed with my Illness and my Ex Husband was to busy again with his Friends then to support me, I went through Physical Abuse and Mental Abuse for many years, my Confidence was gone, well that door closed after a lot of Grief from him and another Door opened to me I now have the most caring loving Man I could have only dreamed of After being told for 21 Years that I would never get anyone else as my Body was fat and deformed through Child Birth and that I was nothing Special I found it hard at first that this Man loves me for who and how I am and that I am actually Special, He tells me there is nothing wrong with my Figure and that I am certainly not ugly and just because of my Illness does not mean I am nobody and he has stood by me and supported me and still is all the way So yes I agree you have to meet the wrong ones first I guess

Yes gabs you are a perfect example of what can happen to our life if going through the wrong door. Being the person that you are you try to cope and hope that things will get better in the future, but enough is enough and we have to close that door of life behind us and thankfully we open the right door to another part of life that has a better meaning to live.

Seems as though the doors were very close together for a while until you found the courage to shut one of them, and thankfully the right one.
