“It’s over, so don’t cry. It’s okay to smile because it occurred.” Those nine lines, written by Ted Geisel (Dr. Seuss), one of our country’s most beloved storytellers, convey a wealth of knowledge. They apply to a variety of areas of life, but I’d want to concentrate on relationships. Marriages, partners, friends, relatives, and other types of relationships will all come to an end at some time in our life for the majority of us. It hurts when people leave or die. What should I do about the pain?
This statement from Dr. Seuss implies being pleased about something that has happened and cannot be altered. A change in one’s life, whether for the better or the worse, is a positive thing. It would be a mean less cycle recurring again and over if there was no change in life. A powerful alteration in one’s attitude is a smile. Smiles can be used to express happiness, grief, or joy. This phrase appealed to me since it reminded me of all the changes in my life and how they assisted me in moving forward.
Stuck With a Feeling
The words of Dr. Seuss are full of wisdom. Many individuals get the impression that “it is over.” However, remembering the positive and feeling appreciative is the route out of the agony. The emotion of appreciation will open a door in your heart, allowing the emotion of love to enter.
When a person ruminates on every aspect of the ending, the grief persists, and it might even worsen over time. The finest thing you can do is be grateful. Make a list of the things you love about being with this individual. Sending the list to the person may be highly therapeutic. You’re transitioning the relationship thoughtfully and lovingly this way.
“Smile in the mirror. Do that every morning and you’ll start to see a big difference in your life“
When anything comes to an end, don’t weep, don’t think of the ending as terrible, and don’t think of what happened as horrible or sad either. Yes, it may be upsetting for a while, especially if we have lost someone or something we genuinely care about.
Dr. Seuss, on the other hand, advises us to grin rather than cry. Keep in mind the event and the fact that it occurred. Whether it was a positive or negative event, we can learn something from it.
The happiness we shared, the love we felt, and the anticipation we felt for the time we had it. We’ve learned our lesson and will never do the same thing again. A talent or information gained will help us achieve greater benefit.
“A gentle word, a kind look, a good-natured smile can work wonders and accomplish miracles”
Change is unavoidable, and it is because of these changes that we continue to grow! As a result, it is critical to recognize that whatever that began with will ultimately end. Regardless of what happened, one should never grieve because it is over. Rather, one should grin, appreciating the fact that it happened at all, for better or worse! There are times when we nag about something just because it happened and then passed us by. However, one should not mourn over something that has already passed. Instead, he or she must extract the teachings. If the occurrence was for your benefit, it was fantastic, and you will undoubtedly be pleased with the outcome.

If the conclusion offended you, there’s no use in regretting it. As a result, instead of sobbing because you believe it’s ended, find reasons to cherish it.
It’s critical to realize that nothing is designed to last indefinitely. Anything that has begun will undoubtedly end at some point, and you should be prepared for this from the outset.
“Colors are the smiles of nature”
Everything in life, including life itself, must come to an end when we die, and our time on this planet is limited. Instead of being sad and regretful when something comes to an end, we should be grateful that we had the opportunity to experience it in the first place. We may either experience a feeling of loss because something has come to an end, or we can grin because we had the opportunity to live in the present while it was happening. Relationships frequently end as two people grow apart as they age and no longer share the same common goals and interests. The termination of a relationship does not negate all of the time spent together or all of the good memories made as a pair.
When something ends, it’s vital to be optimistic and consider how your life has been enhanced as a result of the event. You become the person you are as a result of both positive and negative life events. Even a happy ending may be a happy ending since every ending is a new beginning, with fresh possibilities and chances that might otherwise be missed. Life is a journey that continues to unfold.
“Smiling is one of the best beauty remedies. If you have a good sense of humor and a good approach to life, that’s beautiful”
Staying in the past or feeling regret because something has come to an end will only hold you back from achieving the happiness you deserve. Be thankful for the connection or experience, even if it did not end out the way you had hoped since you gained valuable lessons as a result.
When we think about someone or something that isn’t there anymore, whether it’s a person, an event, or anything else, we have the option of remembering that they/it isn’t here anymore and being sad or remembering the good times and being joyful. While it may not be an easy decision, it is one that only you have the power to make.
