We all have one life to live and most often we forget this very fact and behave as if we are going to be here forever. In fact the only truth is that we are mortals but how many of us remember this fact and conduct our life in a fashion that reflects this truth?. You will be surprised to know that most often we do not think of death or mortality at all. Nobody wants to think of death at any point of time. Our life on earth is pretty short and we spend all of the time in acquiring or running behind material wealth. Very often you will find men so glued to their work and career goals in order to attain a certain position, money and the recognition that goes with it that they forget relationships as well as their responsibilities at home and in life. It is sad but true that the day will come when all the money in the world cannot buy the individual his happiness or his health.
A man may earn millions of dollars in his life time but if he does not enjoy good health what is the use of that money? All his money may be spent in medication and hospital bills alone. On the other hand those who have a lot of money and no time to spare for their children will find themselves at the receiving end when they get older and their children grow up. It is not the money that you have that matters but the time and love that you have for your children that counts. When the children have grown up, they are not going to need your money for they will want to earn it themselves. They will have no time for you and will have their own busy social life. Personally too because you never cared and invested into the relationship, you will find that you have no place in their heart and they do not have time for you. This does happen to many men. Those who do not understand their mistakes are likely to blame their spouse and children and cry hoax. By the time they are in their fifties, they hit andropause and the reduction of male hormones is likely to cause depression as well as loss of confidence and other problems. If one doesn’t understand what is happening to the self due to the hormonal imbalance, it is quite likely that he is going to hit the bottom and end up blaming life. This is one time when the individual will need the family’s support to get through the andropause stage and at this crucial juncture he might not find anyone beside him.
Why do we realize our mistakes only after we have lost precious things in our life? Why can’t we have a little more discrimination and patience as well as fore thought? May be we take life too easy or may be the purpose of our life is to make mistakes and learn? Every moment of life is a lesson and we evolve as better human beings at the end of our life. But then life is so uncertain and the calling can come any time. Make time for your loved ones today. Every moment is precious in life.
