Life’s Too Short…

Some people think that life is long enough to live through. They enjoy their times without paying the price for their mistakes. They hurt who they meet in their ways and keep walking without even looking backward, to make sure those who they left behind got up or are still down where they pushed them. Feelings are the last things they consider, that’s why they keep on hurting the other’s feelings. It became a normal thing in their life. They think they shouldn’t apologize even if they are wrong, and what’s worse are those who say that they never make a mistake in their whole life. Ego plays a big role in their lives, but life is too short; it will never let them take the easy way out.

Life is too short to think it’s too long. It gives no time for us to even have one minute to say sorry to someone we caused pain. It might end suddenly in the moment we decide to tell someone how much we love him/her. It gives us so many chances to be good with people that we meet. Sometimes it pushes people our way for a reason, like to help them, or to make them help us. With every minute we spend in this life, we are learning new lessons. With all the lessons we miss, it means we didn’t take the opportunities that life provided for us. We will miss having the experience and at the same time we’ll be drowning in ego by saying we know everything. That will lead us to the concept that life is long enough to live happily without learning or even correcting our mistakes which will lead us to the most dangerous part, which is ignorance.

It’s not easy, to see the person we love the most walking away, without stopping him/her to say:  “I’m sorry”.  They might have an accident and never come back again. We will live in pain and regret our whole life for not letting go of our ego to say we’re sorry. These words could let them feel happy, at least they would enjoy the last moments of forgiveness they give to those who they love before they leave this life forever.

We face tragedies on our path in life that open our eyes for facts we never knew before. The pain that we live through in any accident we have, makes us forgive and ask for forgiveness.  All of a sudden, we are another person. No room for hate in our hearts; thinking of those we hurt the most and searching for them just to say sorry is the only thing we think about. The suffering opens our eyes on the fact that we were on the wrong path, especially when those who we caused pain towards forgive us by being worried about us and step on their wounds that we caused for them just to ask if we are doing fine. We recognize that life is too short to be distracted by useless things. Some people concentrate on a person’s looks, but they never try to see what’s in their hearts; they never give them a chance to know how they think. They prefer people who have empty heads with good looks rather than wise people with fair looks. These kinds of people who live in shallowness, they think life is long enough to live because the emptiness that fills their lives makes them never think at all of what is coming on their way.

Chances come and go; it’s important to know how short life is and let those chances to fix our mistakes. Sometimes people are late to come back home, but they come in the end.  This is a chance they had without even knowing it that if they hurt someone to make it up to them next day. And sometimes people are late for their appointment or their homes, someone there is waiting for them, and the clock keeps on ticking but they never showing up and they miss being in any place in the world cause life was too short and took them soon. So, they miss making it up to someone who they hurt, or someone missed the chance to make it up to them.

 Life is not a party where we spend our time drinking and getting drunk, and then we sleep and wake up next day forgetting every mistake we made while we were drunk. If we take life for granted, there must be a price we must pay someday. We should always think that life is too short. We should always be ready to forgive and ask for forgiveness.
