There are some things in life that change rapidly, and some, change quite slowly. No matter how prepared we are, or how prepared we think we are, there’s always a trip wire somewhere that sets off an alarm in your head, telling you there is something remotely wrong when you’re comfortable enough to lower your ground.
This kind of jolt in your life stability is a challenge to bear, and usually, it involves gaining something new, and losing something familiar, or granted to you. Loss, can be seen as a great thing, when taken to perspective of losing a life.
In a diagram (more complicatedly named Kübler-Ross), it is expressed that there are five stages of grief. Despite the popular use of these stages and life or death situations (losing a loved one, being terminally diagnosed, etc.), there are small things, everyday, that results in a loss. And these losses, albeit smaller than a live or death balance, is just as devastating.
