How can we get over feelings of being lost, even if temporarily?Life is full of joys, sorrows, and what have you. A person can be very happy at some 8AM after hearing a very good news about his merit payment, but the same person might be sad at around 4 PM, after hearing about the loss of his dear friend, or about the hospitalization and serious condition of a near relative.
Sometimes, the grief in unbearable, more so, if the person had been a very good person, if we have had great many experiences together and so on. We feel totally lost, at least for a few days, like say, even fifteen days at a stretch.
How do we cope with such losses, and the feeling of being empty? We suddenly realize that life is so short, that life is just this much, and there is nothing in life to work for.
A few days later, when we begin to face all the nuances of this rat race, about which all of us can do nothing about, we are back to square one. Our thoughts go behind immediate tasks, and we have do many things. We get angry, throw up temper tantrums, feel frustrated about something that had happened in office and then would ventilate all that at home, at our wives ( who else?)
This becomes a dangerous thing to do, as they have their own emotions, feelings and moments of stress. The fact is that our subconscious mind is still rooted in the thoughts --- the memories of all the good times that we had with the persons who are now no more.
