Learning the hard way

"You can't always get what you want"

A classic line by the Rolling Stones that just makes me think of House arguing with Cuddy. I don't remember what they're squabbling about, but in answer to him saying he wants something only to be told that you don't always get what you want, he sasses back to her

"but if you try, sometimes you might find you get what you need."

This is so very true. True but so often forgotten. How often do we decide that we want something then get unhappy when it doesn't happen?? How many times do we decide that something is meant to be and then get hurt when it doesn't work out?? And how many time does that need to happen before we'll remember??

Blue Eyes summed this up for me last night, albeit unknowingly, by reminding me that just because someone doesn't love you way you want them to doesn't mean they don't love you the best they can. Or in other words, it might take a while, but eventually you realise that most of the time, things do really work out for the best.

Love, etc.

Do things really work out for the best? Or is it that every cloud have a silver lining?

The cloud can still be big and grey and horrible, and the silver lining doesn't stop it from being that way, it just offers a little relief from the pain caused by the cloud. It's like looking on the bright side, it doesn't make the bad things any less bad, but can make you feel better and give you hope.

I guess that's what I'm getting at, hope. Where would we be without it?

I love and miss you very much,
