We come alone and we leave alone. Between this coming and going we build our own artificial world in which we use all our true emotions and feelings. Life is so confusing when you see how you become more and more unimportant for this world and for your loved ones and it hurts to think, what the hell we did whole life..... so for me this life is nothing but confusion...what about you....

I think that life is what you make of it. There are a lot of choices and decisions but there is also happiness as well. I like being happy with what I have and if I die tomorrow I'll be happy because what I've left behind will be good for my family and my daughter's family. Just because we leave this world alone and with nothing doesn't mean we will be in the after life alone and what we leave behind is mainly for our family and to make their life fuller.

Hello sizzle3000, Life becomes confusing when the family for which you did so much don't need you any more. If tomorrow your daughter will say mother/father , you are now old, I need to go and live my own life.......you will not stop her, but at the same time you will be shatter deeply, and that is the time when you feel , life gave you nothing. You will not understand where the things went wrong and then life will become confusion.....this is what I meant in my discussion.Thanks for your reply.

For me life is a journey. We meet a lot of people along the way. Sometimes there are road blocks. I have faced a lot of problems in life. Lost a few very close people. There were times when I just wished this journey would end soon. Especially when our loved ones go far away from us. And yes, life is confusing at times.

Yes mayka, now you got me right, it is all about our loved ones. They are the one who make us smile or cry.......it is all about love and emotions, no matter what kind of love. But I think one that hurts the most is love for children. Children will realize the worth of parents only when they will become parents, but by that time we would have already gone.....I don't think we need to tell anything. Each one understands his feelings on this topic.Thanks for your reply.

To me, life is simply good but comes with its ups and down. It is not always as rosy as we think, very uncertain with its attendant challenges.

yes I agree with you. I am not afraid of ups and downs, but just sad when loved ones hurt me because it surely is painful and takes me towards depression and then I start such discussions. Thanks for your reply.

For me life is full of happiness although sometimes we have to experience pain in order for us to learn in life...Life is what we make it or we are the one doing our life,if we want that our life will be meaningful we have to do good things and be positive in every aspect of our life.

Hello ryanong........life is beautiful and has lot of meaning. But when those people ignore you or boycott you for whom you have lived your full life, then you start to feel like you wasted your time and life is meaningless.There are always few incidents in life which force you to think negative for life, but otherwise, life is really gift of God.Thanks for your reply

Hi there ! Life is like a coin , having 2 sides . The ugly and beautiful , the sad and happy side , the success and failure . It have 2 faces and phases that all needs to undergo . No one is exempted from being sad and no one also would be in state of happiness always. It all depends in us on how we treat life , we can make it simpler or we can make it complicated . Life is what we make it , we can make it beautiful or ugly. The choice is in our hands.

Hello Angelpink, I really agree with every word of your response. Yes it is in our hand to make life easy or complicated. What comes as an obstacle is some emotional attachments, some sentiments. Will try to overcome these drawbacks and then I think life will be much peaceful for me. Thanks for your reply.

when we meet troubles in our life, then we will think that why our life is very very confusing, can't feel the fun from life, or you think we are unimportant, but you must know we are the only one, we are the part of life, if the world is picture, without you, it's imperfect.

life - life is too short
Life is so strange and unpredictable.Life is like a bubble in a water surface.one pop and then no more. Life is too short ,so we have to enjoy it fully.Our present life is very fast because of modern technology and we feel life is running very fast.I think so invisible force is controlling our life and our day to day activities.

Hello sreejithsreenivas, Nice explanations for life...I did like it. Life is not a problem as long as there are no emotions in it. But unfortunately God has given us a very soft sentimental heart, which keeps shedding tears every now and then. but I think this problem is getting solved slowly slowly as new generation is seeing more and more heartless people.... Thanks for your reply.

Describe long space their own lives, we can with one significant event. All living resources have been put into it. One of the events reflected - all your life. I doubt whether it be work, career, or similar.. LOL All are "packed" in children or to close people. Love - will be and all possible feelings - Will be Weep and rejoice, sorrow and dream, and much more we did.. It seems that we have learned sense. ;)

hello zaugis.....I think you are a poet...and indeed you have made good use of words to describe ups and downs of life.And yes, my package here is all about children, love for children, feelings for children, and then separation from children . Yes I agree weep and then rejoice is the only choice left for us because changes will definitely occur and we cannot stop them. Thanks for nice reply.

I don't feel like that. What I do feel though is that, my job defines me at the moment. When I got injured and been on a sick leave for how many months, I felt so depressed and useless. I could loose this job, or I should say i could loose my identity if I could not get back on this job. After a time, I realized that I should be the person first, more than this person in this career or work. So I started going out more often with friends, started connecting with my family again. Yes, you are right too. It comes to a point that we finally execute our plans to be able to reach a certain dream. But then we forget the people around us, the people we love and the very people who love us unconditionally. Then we just find ourselves unfulfilled and unloved in the end coz somewhere along the way we lost them.

Hello taiwanlife, First of all I want to say sorry that you had to go from such a difficult time. I hope now all is well with you and that you have a nice job too. Now about my discussion....yes you are right, when we love someone, we become too possessive about him or her (here I am talking about my children who want to live separate life).....we live in fear of losing our dear one if he separated from us. and this fear is what gives us depression, But now I have decided to be brave and accept the facts of life with the assumption that changes are always for the better. Thanks for your response.

I have still not started thinking in these lines but I know that there will come a time when such thoughts will crowd my mind; I have to train myself to accept the fact that I will stop featuring in my children's lives with the same importance that I did when I was young.The best thing to get some equilibrium would be to develop a passion for oneself and pursue it; it can be anything , even reading and we will have to seclude ourselves a lot and do this , talk less and get wiser as we grow old. It is all wonderful for sages to say that we should live a life of detachment like water on the lotus leaf but it is not easy.Let us strive to retain interest as well as balance in life.God should help us! Participate in mylot more frequently; it may help.

Dear kalav56, since you and me belong to same Indian culture, I think you understand and feel my pain very well.....we give our whole life to children, but we cannot even blame them if they are grown and want to live their own life.......our problem is our sentiments, which unfortunately cannot turn into stone overnight.....besides I don't think such problems are in Indian culture, I am living in a country which is fully influenced by western culture which has its own advantage and disadvantages. Anyway, I cannot stop things from changing, so I will just try to be strong and accept them and may later on I will realize that change was for better......... Thanks for your reply kalav, and yes I will try to be active on mylot, it does help.

Hi Apsara I see life very differently than you, the way I see life we are All important taking a journey, to maybe reach a goal, or perhaps become someone very important to another ones life. Life for EVERYONE (no exceptions) has its ups and downs, we simply can choose to make the most of it, or we can simply choose not to. Life is always about choices and mistakes, this is what helps us grow and hopefully become a better person for it.

Thanks for your response Laurenlynn, I agee with you.Actually I think it is all about our mood. when we are happy, we take life positive and think practically like a scientist and when we are hurt or sad, we bend more towards emotional thinking and become a philosopher....just like in love, when there is battle between heart and mind, heart always wins though mind is always more sensible...., so one thing I said is right that life is confusing...... Have a nice day.
