Why?

leave a comment »

why-us

That’s the big question, isn’t it?

Why were we born? Why do we do the things we do? Why do people cycle in and out of our lives? Why do people have to die?

There are a lot of “why’s?” in our lives and sometimes we may never know the answers.

I do a lot of wondering about the people I have met in my life and the women I have dated, especially the relationships that didn’t work out. Why did I have to go through those times? Why did I do the things that caused them pain and why did I have to go through the times that caused me pain?

If we are supposed to learn from those moments and become better people because of them, why can’t we just have that knowledge ahead of time and spare everyone the pain and upset? Why must we be taught through such emotional experiences? And why are we sometimes meant to learn the same lesson repeatedly? What is it about us that we can’t learn from our mistakes the first time we make them and not repeat our foolish ways?

Let’s hope we’ve all learned enough lessons to make us smarter and more capable of making only good decisions from now on.
