I can't accept the fact that the love of my life died,what shall I do?

I don't know what's the point of my life without my beloved one.

  • Nov 10 2011: Hello Hope Sun.
    Thank you for sharing a horrible pain that all of us have or will face during our lives. I wish I knew the answer, but I don't. But let me suggest a different way to look at this.
    We know that everything that lives will die. It is inherent in the nature of life itself. And that is true whether you believe in an immortal soul or not. People die and we lose their company. We must accept this as a truth, or we would live in a world of delusion.
    But that does not mean that we should accept that love dies. Love is a bond between people that is stronger than death itself. Because as long as even one person who shared that love is alive, so is love itself.
    So, perhaps the point of life is keeping our love alive. Live so that your beloved lives in you. Share your love -- and his -- with every worthy person you meet.
