The Most Difficult time one can endure in his life is when someone you love goes far away from you and there is no possibility of returning back. This is the moment when it becomes impossible for you to even imagine your life will ever get back to the track like how it was before with him/her.

Life never remains the same after losing someone who was very close. At some time one might feel like give up living and isolate oneself from the world. A world where every little thing reminds of him/her.

The fact that all those good times you spend with him/her has now become a memory brings tears to eyes. All that silly, stupid fight will never happen again also kills deep inside.

But this could be the time when you learn the greatest lesson that life can teach you. This lesson is so valuable that it changes your life dramatically. And the change it brings is applicable to the various dimension of your life.

People deal with this scenario differently. Some let this grief take over them and let it ruin their life by becoming a drunkard and remain isolated from the world from zero to minimum social contact.

They find it hard to accept this fact that he/she now will never return. This is the worst way to deal with it. Shaping your life this way after a great loss will never let you move on in life.

Some take their life into a completely new journey of spirituality. Their interest shifts from worldly matters to learning spirituality.

This person eventually becomes a new person after such a tragedy. Instead of losing control of his life and spending all day crying alone. He actually becomes a better version of himself by understanding the futility of life.

He learns the greatest lesson of life that everything in this life is impermanent. He accepts the impermanent nature of all beings and that you can hold on to nothing. Everything in this life is going to part from you at some point in life.
