On not wanting what you can't have

When the realization dawns, that you may indeed, never have it, do you

a) Start questioning why you ever wanted it?

b) Make do with the next closest thing?

c) Weep?

d) Stop wanting it?

if possible,stop wanting it,, otherwise you just get used to not having it. but strike out option b completely, that is definitely not the option to go with,, unless you are talking about a lifeless object.

a)and b)
a) helps you rationalise things.
b) After a) if you still want it,b) would make a good compensation if not a complete replacement.

Not to worry. At around the same time that realization dawned that you may never have it, rest assured that realization will also dawn that the grapes were sour.

I would do all of the above. Sorry about that situation. Maybe the healthiest is to focus on b.

e) assume that you have amnesia and forget that you ever wanted it. then you'll rack your brains asking yourself so what was the bloody thing i wanted in the first place.

Peace out!

P.S. You still cry over stolen templates, shame on ya

Snowbeak said...

Maybe stop wanting it? Because there's something to be learnt from not having this now and something better is just waiting to come.
