Why do we learn to appreciate the value of the things after we lose them ?

Posted: October 31, 2010 in Thoughts and Stuff

A lot of the things we do are part of our everyday life and sometimes we even don’t notice them. They are not valuable anymore since they are something simple, something usual. They are not unique anymore. They are something we take for granted, something we are used to with. Do we appreciate the existence of air? No, we don’t. Do we appreciate the ability to walk? No, we don’t, because we do not know what it would be if this ability of ours is taken away. Do we appreciate the existence of the water? We don’t, but the Arabian do, just because they know what is to live with the lack of water. We start to appreciate the value of something after we lose it, meanwhile it is something we can have anytime we want, it is not something special, it is something ordinary.

We learn to appreciate the value of something after we lose it, because we do not know what it would be if we didn’t have this thing at the first place, we don’t know what it would be if we had to work for it or to fight for it. We had it from the very begining so what’s the big deal if we lose it, well obviously not everything has a price and after it is lost, it can’t be returned back. That’s why we must learn to appreciate what we have, because if we didn’t have it in first place, our live could be different.
