Nothing is permanent

It’s very easy to give advice to other people because you’re not the one in their situation. When a friend of mine told me that he gets paranoid sometimes about his partner cheating, I advised him to get a grasp of the fact of life that nothing is permanent. I told him to never allow his paranoia to be the driving force behind his actions towards his partner because it will surely sabotage their relationship. Then I told him that in case his partner leaves him, he should remind himself of that fact. It may not alleviate the pain of loss and longing, but it will surely help him to move on and cope with the rejection. He agreed with everything I said, even though he and I both know that it’s easier said than done. It’s just a very sensible thing to do. If you don’t want to subject yourself to disappointments, never expect good things to stay good forever. Enjoy good things while they last; appreciate people’s company and friendship while they are willing to give it to you, and accept their decision gracefully when they decide to leave you. As I said, nothing is permanent. That’s the fact of life. Just accept it or deal with the heartaches, disappointments, and sleepless nights. You always have a choice. Just choose wisely.
