I do not pretend to know someone else's pain. But I can scarcely deny that the hardest moments in my own life have centered on loss. The loss of trust, the loss of finances, the loss of hope, and the worst of all, the loss of a loved one.
I do not pretend to know someone else's pain. Yet I cannot imagine I'm alone in this sentiment regarding loss. How we cope in such situations defines us as a person. You learn a lot about yourself when you lose. You learn if you're the kind of person who is a good friend, the kind of person who is a good spouse, a good parent, a good son or a good daughter.
