Life sometimes brings us to a point where we feel we are at the edge of a cliff and the edge seems to be falling apart. You look down from the cliff and see a deep valley that appears to be a hollow space without much hope. You are bombarded with feelings and emotions of being left out and questions that make you think if anyone loved you and cares enough. Thoughts that make you feel like no one cares if you live or die.
If you are going through a phase like this where you feel you are not loved or valued much and seem to be clueless of why that kind of feeling has crept in , then let me assure you that going through something like this is absolutely human and normal . Let me tell you a secret. Friend! You are wonderfully made in the most amazing way with a heart inside of you that longs for love and care. There is nothing weird about such a feeling. That is how a human heart is so unique and is a bag of emotions and feelings for family, friends, animals and the whole world in general. So where exactly does the concern lie? A famous writer C.S. Lewis quotes "To love is to be vulnerable" when we place our heart and our affections on someone we become vulnerable to the reactions and the responses from that person. If we get love in return we feel great, valued and happy, but if we are not loved enough so as to meet our expectations then we feel dejected and depressed.
It is important to understand our real expectations! And more important, to understand from whom we are expecting. The richest people may not be the happiest always. At some point in our lives we will reach to a conclusion that there's more to life than what we see, hear and feel about things around here. There is more than misery and sorrow. We have new things that are budding to turn into creations to add fragrance to our lives. We have better things to hope for. Joseph Addison said "Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.
