Monday Secret

My secret is that I got angry when I saw this secret posted on PostSecret's website. Because although this person misses what they used to have (and that's such a legitimate feeling), I feel like I never got a chance to try. After a few seconds, I wasn't angry any more - I was just sad.

But....I look at it from my dad's point of view....and I understand the person's sentiment. Imagine never walking again, never being able to wipe your backside, never being able to eat with a fork and a knife again, never being able to say the words that are in your brain, never being able to have a shower and realizing that you will never be able to live without total care again. I hear you when you talk about your pain and it's horrible and I realize you didn't get 85 years of health but it's still hurts a person to their core when they "can't". It hurts you just as much as it hurts them. And I think that the hurt you feel or my dad feels is unimaginable unless a person has truly been there. Stay strong Lins!

Thanks, Mags. Of course, you're right. It's that age-old question - whether it's easier to lose someone quickly or slowly, whether it's better to know or not to know, whether it's easier when bad things happen to you when you're too young to understand or old enough to have enjoyed life 'before' - and the answer is that no one knows, because no one can have both experiences. I've said a thousand times and I'll say it again: if I had to choose a disease or a bad thing that would happen to me, I think I got dealt a pretty sweet hand. It's all relative, isn't it? :)
