The Blunder of Life

Guest Post by Dick Warn

Oliver Goldsmith, Anglo-Irish poet and playwright, said, “Life is a journey that must be traveled no matter how bad the roads and accommodation.”

No matter how much you have or where you are headed, nasty; damaging things occasionally occur. It is one thing to stand tall with head held high when everything is going our way. Quite another when life is falling apart at the seams.

Marcus T. Cicero, Roman orator, said, “It is foolish to tear one’s hair in grief, as though sorrow would be made less with baldness.”

When we have truly screwed up and we know it’s our fault, that is truly painful and it is okay to sit on the pity pot for a moment or two. However, anything more is a terrible waste. The best way to deal with our pain is total honesty. Admit we did it. Then begin looking for ways correct the damage and make things better. Action eases the pain.

Benjamin Disraeli, British Prime Minister, said, “Grief is the agony of an instant. The indulgence of grief is the blunder of life.”
