Sincerest Apologies and Bright Promises

Dear Residents of this vast underworld,


How is everyone? May Hades smile down upon you all. He is most certainly not smiling down at me at this moment. But …

.
."Better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all."
.I'm quite sure that everyone have heard this saying at least once or twice.
.However, what I'd really like to know is whether you honestly agree with it or not.

.It's been on my mind for several days, and personally I don't find it true.
.I think it hurts more when you know what you've lost rather than simply not owning it to begin with.
.I'd like to hear everyone's opinion on this o^^o)/

The quote is quite relative. Relative meaning it means different things to different people, especially since our experiences are different from one another.
"Better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all."
The quote essentially means that it's worse being ignorant to love compared to experiencing and knowing love. Basically it has the same roots as the quote "Ignorance is bliss," but with an opposing side.

Both sides have valid points, but personally I believe in terms of ignorance as a whole- it is not bliss not knowing anything. But in terms of love, I firmly believe that it's better to not have been loved at all. Maybe it's just me, but love is not something that one can experience and be just 'okay' with after it's gone. It's a lot more complicated than that- once you felt it, you're going to want to keep experiencing it, and much like a drug, it's not something you can easily withdraw from. I'd rather go about the world without my emotions going haywire because of memories that consist of lost love- I mean, after all, we all are born alone and we all will die alone. Might as well be lonely from the start to end, if I'm going to be alone anyways. #YOLO.

Okay no but in all seriousness, there are definite arguments to both sides of the coin. It depends how you, as an unique individual, perceives/look at things.

Its better to have loved and lost, then to have never loved at all...

I think I typed that incorrectly, but never the less.
I personally live by this saying, along with many others, simply because of how true it strikes with me. It brings on the question Would you have rather never learned what you did? Do you regret the decision? If it changed you, would you rather go back to being the person you once were? For me this saying is asking a question more than stating really. Like a wistful sidethought. There has been one moment where I lost truly the closest person I have come to know, though I have found new friends. It was heartbreaking, but the memories that I have from those times, though lost, I will always have.

[center]So What I am trying to say is, the memories that you keep are more precious then the moments themselves. Even after all the pain, I wouldn't give my memories up for one more second of that friendship. So at that, Loving and losing is all part of who we are. Would you really be will to give that up because of pain?
