Maybe tomorrow will be too late to apologize, to try, to believe, to hug, to say “I love you”, to say an eternal “I miss you” …
Which is terrible, especially because you don’t care about life when you are still young and live it with your heart. However, it may be that tomorrow someone around you will send one last message or say their last words without knowing it. And this someone could also be you.
And then you will wonder what was the last message of that person so important to you, what were his last words or what his last hug was like, and you will hope that it was exciting, able to demonstrate and sincerely express everything. the love that united you.
In reality, it is impossible to know when we will breathe the last sigh, when will be the last time we will burst out laughing or when the last tear will wet our eyes.
Whatever happens, you should be ready
Whatever happens, it’s good to fix the roof before it rains, so you don’t find yourself unprepared for the farewell.
Because “it’s never too late” always comes too soon. And when it happens, it hurts. However, as painful as it can be, spending time with the people we love helps us not add regret to the pain.
The fact of not being able to say goodbye is scary, so frightening. From the moment we start living, we know the end will come; however, too often we don’t get excited, we don’t do the things we are passionate about, and we don’t hug the people we love.
The ease with which we avoid doing all these things is frightening, especially because we feel the need to close our eyes and self-convince ourselves that we still have time, that our heart is still young and that nothing bad will happen.
In reality, we all have to say goodbye sooner or later and it becomes much more painful if we have wasted our time up until then, if we have stifled our words and if we have forgotten about kisses, good days and hugs.
Do not bid farewells without strong hugs and beautiful words
If there is one thing that life does not prepare us for, it is death. We only know how to inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide, our body cannot drown. Doing so would mean leaving our hearts empty and this is incompatible with life and, above all, with the right to say goodbye.
Don’t forget to tell your loved ones that you love them as if it were the first time, because it could be the last. Do not complain so much and enjoy the defects of life in their simplicity and beauty.
Breathe in all the oxygen you can, sigh often, smile at the children, forget about pride and live every moment as if you were doing the most beautiful thing in the world.
Surely, you would not want to know that you will spend your last moments working, ironing your shirts or enduring the annoying noises of the neighbor, but you would rather experience them wonderfully or making your loved ones feel unique and special.
Certainly, no one would choose that his last expression is of bitterness, that his last words are screams or that the last gesture is to close the door in someone else’s face.
But, if so, let others know that you have lived loving them, let all those people you hug and treat with affection know.
Of course, dying scares us, but the idea of dying without having fun, without having loved or having fought to be better people , is even scarier. It is good to remember this every day, but especially in dark moments or in those that make us seethe with anger.
It is precisely in those difficult days that we must remember that life is simply fantastic, that it is full of pros and without cons. That spending time with our loved ones stimulates smiles, and not anguish or complaints.
Don’t wait until it’s too late to spend time with your loved ones, live as if you were going to die tomorrow and learn as if you were going to live forever. Remember that the day that matters is today, because tomorrow may no longer be there.
