How To Deal With It When Good Things Come To An End

Wake up thinking that it will be a good day and it will more than likely will be. Your thoughts are so powerful.

I put it to people to finish this line: Good things come to an end because...

All opinions ventured in my post are valid. Leave yours in the comments below and I may do this again with another topic because it is thought-provoking.

The first response I got I agree with wholeheartedly. 'Good things come to an end because if they didn't they wouldn't be 'good' things, they's be things we expect. It's all about appreciation.' Jade Tullett. I agree with that. I think we don't appreciate things enough when they are there, only when they are gone. Which is a massive shame. I don't know if it's because of the way we are brought up in this culture, because in other cultures, though we may not understand them, seem to have to got it right.

It was interesting the next response I got. 'I don't think good things do always come to an end.' Jocy Levy. It doesn't have to end as long as you are appreciative of it. If you can keep up the adrenalin that you had when that good thing happened you will feel better. After a good thing has passed you can always remember how it felt and believe that life can only get better. Although sometimes it will feel like nothing will ever get better, look at yourself sitting here and still breathing given all the hardships you've conquered in your life! That's something to be proud of. Think of everything in the past you have overcome, whether it's something physical or something like a crush on someone. They've happened but the strength never leaves you. You'll always have that experience.

'Good things come to an end so we can continue to push ourselves and become better people.' Aimee Tarling. I think this is true too. We all need something to aim for. And because you don't always have good things happen to you (total contradiction to the above paragraph) it makes aiming for them more crucial. And we do become better people when good things do happen because we are carrying the belief that things can get better with us and passing it off in what we do or who we interact with. Things are better when things seem to be favouring us, and though it may not always be happening they are good things to aim for.

'Fate throws us nasty curveballs to remind us not to get too comfortable in our happiness.' Chloe Clark. This seems true also. It brings me back to one of my favourite things to say, that everything is constantly changing. From your cells to the situations that arise outside of your body. You may not see it changing, but as with my favourite analogy how does a flower appear without being planted and watered even though you can't see it. Things are happening below the surface that are not visible to the naked eye yet. We can't get too comfortable in our situation because if we do something will come along to change it, usually unexpectedly.

'Good things come to an end because that is how life goes on. We can't stay in the same place forever. Even though it is heartbreaking to see it end, that doesn't mean that something just as good, if not better won't come along later when you least expect it.' Serra Karamette. I agree with this, good things end and you can't fear that nothing will ever come and beat the feeling of happiness this occassion has brought. We learn to be stronger by these life events happening, so when a good thing crops up, we feel worthy of it or should do.

'Good things come to an end because people stop believing in that good thing and just give up all hope on it being as good as they remember. Sometimes this is good as it opens up new opportunities. Sometimes it's bad as if people had worked as hard as they did on giving up then maybe the good times wouldn't have to end.' Emma Delves. It's about your personal focus. If you are looking for the bad things that happen in life you will find them. And the news is a bad transmitter of positive things that do happen every day. Good things do happen every day, it is just a matter of your viewpoint.

'You never know what could happen and it could get worse. In life I have learnt to be positive for what you have and move onwards and upwards. Believing that life can get better with a smile on your face.' Jonny Dye. This feels like a very #StephCarfrae thing to say (the last sentance anyway). But I believe this is true, you never know how life works behind the scenes. It works behind the scenes to form the good things that will come into your life, but also plans things that can rock you out of your comfort zone so we are never too safe. But that is exciting because we can't get too familiar with our lives before it changes. I find it exciting anyway.

'Good things come to an end because of timing.' Vanessa O'Sullivan. I wasn't sure of this reason. But I believe that timing is a very important factor in life in general. And the right timing can change everything. Maybe it wasn't the right timing for something good to happen to you but someone is relishing in a good time because they'd appreciate it more. Again, appreciation is key. 'Appreciation is one of the highest emotional states you can be in and should be

incorporated into your daily living. It is the state of abundance. The Law of

Attraction states that like attracts like. If you are grateful for what you have

already received, you will attract more for which you can be grateful.' Jack Canfield. I believe that like will recieve like, not necessarly right now but eventually.

'Good things come to an end because good and bad are two sides of the same coin. You can't have one without the other.' Serena Sweeting. While it is nice to dream of a carefree life where nothing goes wrong or fails THIS IS NOT REALITY. Just like most people learnt in primary school, when the ball goes up in the air it must come down again. This is because of gravity. And if we didn't have gravity we'd all be floating around in outer space right now. So good things and bad things are like life's forces. You don't want to miss out on the good, just because something bad's going on in your life right now do you? In a few days, weeks, months or even years I bet you won't remember the bad thing that got you down so low so don't give up.

'Good things come to an end because of two main reasons. Firstly, as nothing can last forever, good or bad. Secondly, they happen to help people grow as everyone finds different things good.' Madeline Stidder. The first point is repeating what I made reference to in the last paragraph and the second point is very apt to my point. We are all individuals, no one is the same. Though we do like to class ourselves in this society and we are classed on how we look, talk etc. we are never classed for the way we feel. 'Another man's garbage is another man's potpurri,' that quote is from the Grinch.

'Good things come to an end because people don't work to keep them a good thing.' Katie Williams. Like I have stated about keeping your adrenalin at the same level: you need to do this for all of life's surprises. Life is about how you deal with the bad times as well as the good. You can't have the light until you've seen the darkness. I think this is true. Time is relative. As long as you keep focused on that good feeling, relaxation or whatever you find useful you can stay flying high feeling good.

'Good things come to an end because life is forever changing. You can't appreciate the good things if everything is good all the time. Lessons are learned when bad times come and bad thing happen. We learn lessons with good things too but the bad things that happen teach us quicker. Everything does balance itself out. Everything can't be good all the time otherwise people wouldn't grow. We go through hard times to grow in our Faith, as a person and in life in general' Morgan Glover. I think her point about bad times teaching us quicker is really strong and true. Bad times come to prove (to others and especially ourselves) that we are stronger than we thought we are.

'Good things come to an end when people let themselves be overcome with negativity. Good things come to an end because we become used to them and undervalue and disregard them, often forgetting how good they truly are. Most of all good things come to an end because that's life; life is cyclical and cynicial which is the curse but also a blessing.' Jordan Breen. Life works in cycles and it can't be good all the time. The second point he makes is really important. We undervalue so much in life and we really need to start appreciating what we undervalue. We tend to undervalue the priceless things in life because our minds have convinced us it's boring, dull etc. And we believe it's going to be the same tomorrow. But what if it isn't?

'Good things come to an end to open up opportunities that will provide you with more happiness for the long term. Also in a weird way what makes the good times so limited is that they are simply good sometimes when they are just brief infininte moments of magic.' Rose Daniells. I believe this is true. The good times exist for a short amount of time to let you know that they can appear just as easily as they can disappear.

'It's purely the natural cycle of life and existence that good things come to an end. However, I don't think it's fair to label the end as 'that's it' as feelings can be replaced or in some cases renewed.' Richard Baggs. I believe this is true too. Just because it felt that good in the past doesn't mean it never will again or even be overcome by a greater feeling.

'Life is like a piano. The white keys are happy days, and the black keys are sad ones. Just remember that you need both to make music.' Anonymous

'Good things come to an end because that's the way the world goes round.' Gem Nash. Pretty much. But don't get too despondent with this response. I personally think good things have to come to an end to make us appreciate what we had, but more importantly what we have now.

*It just proper made me cry that one of my best friends wasn't positive enough to finish this sentance.*

I hope this helps. I tried to get the viewpoints from most people but if you want to leave your own, you are more than welcome.
