Life is full of uncertainties. Life may have pleasant surprises in store for you, sometimes losses too. How do you cope with losses? Losses may be a financial loss? Or it could be a loss of a dear one?

Loses are loses...and u have to face them...but you should take them positively...maybe there is some message hidden in every kind of loss and it may teach you a lesson...so better take some lesson from each thing you face in life and move on

hi vijayanths! like what you have said life is full of uncertainties and so i think its important for us to be always prepared... losing something is really difficult specially if its a loved one...but i think what is important is for us to learn to accept things that's happening to us and moved on...i know its not easy to forget the one we love but it is also not good to be stuck on that feeling of loss...time can heal anything i guess... maybe we loss our loved ones physically but we can still keep them in our heart... with financial loss....well i guess its not that difficult...just work even harder and better and don't let this ruin your life... faith in God is also important for me in coping up with loses...pray to him, ask for his help and guidance...and of course do your part also! have a nice day friend!

Even though it is hard to recover,we have to cope with all the losses in life.There is tomorrow for us and we have to live today for that.Time is the best medicine for any loss.We should have the mental strength to fight against any loss and that can be received from our best friends and family members.Cheers!

Hi Vijay...Yes, we are all called upon at some point to deal with devastating losses. Faith, prayer, and time help me cope, as well as doing whatever I can to regain certain losses, but the loss of a loved one...that is the hardest loss of all. Karen

Hi vijayanths, I agree that life is full of uncertainties but such is life in the real world. Sometimes the news is good and sometimes it's bad and we all react differently. Nothing of course, compares with the lost of a dear one but it is often at such times that we discover that we have more strength than we thought. Blessings

I think that I have handled the losses in my life better than I had imagined. Sometimes I have thought about losses that might happen in the future, and at that time I was sure that I wouldn't be able to a handle losing those people. I thought that I wouldn't be able to go on withhout those people, but that wasn't true, and when the things that I feared actually happened, I was able to get through it, even though it was really hard and painful. I know that losses are always painful, but the experience has taught me something, and I know that I am sometimes capable of getting through things that seem impossible, and I think it is possible for me to learn to cope with difficult situations.

I have faced many such situation.First I will be busted for few hours, do nothing , I will keep my mouth shut , no food , no drink.After some hours I will take it as a fate then gradually turn myself to normal situations. Like this it is happening frequently. 3 weeks back my company made me hold on from joining. It was painful and after 5 hours I started rescue myself.

I lost dad last month. I can't believe it even now. Losing money can be earned again but losing a dear one is irreversible. It is just too hard to bear. I manage by indulging in some work and activity otherwise I just start remembering dad and incidents and that is too painful with the fact that he is not around now. I used to think I am strong and I can handle anything emotionally but this was the biggest shock and I still haven't overcome it. I think it changes a person bit and one can never be same again.

I lost my dad in last April and my mom in last December. Nothing can compensate these losses in my life.

Loss of any thing is hard to cope up with. If the loss is of a dear one then it takes a lot of time to get back to normal state.

Yes, if it is our loved ones it takes a lot of time to cope with the loss. Money losses can be coped with easily.
