Devereaux Frazier and Beth Amanda are currently hosting the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge which was started by our star writer Christine Ray. We hope to offer all of you something that will spark your creativity and willingness to participate.

The prompts are designed to be quick challenges that can be written in 10 to 15minutes,  inspire you creatively, are fun, and get everyone interacting.  Please post your response to the prompt in the comments below and show your fellow posters some love and support.  All members of the Go Dog Go community, including Baristas, are welcome to participate.  Feel free to share this post on your own blogs and/or Facebook.

Today’s prompt: Why do you think we feel so bad when we lose someone? Can you truly “lose” someone?

  1. Very interesting question. To imply we can lose someone, means that we have someone, like they are an extension of ourselves or a possession. I do not think that is possible, regardless of how much you love someone. When someone has passed or went away I try to focus on the good things we shared, and when someone is gone there is recognition that those things won’t be a part of my life any more and I do sometimes feel sad. Sometimes I feel sad because I wish I had spent more time with the person, knew them better, helped them more … so usually I am more upset about myself. So I try not to have regrets and unfinished business with those I care about in my life.

  2. Yes we do. Whether through time distance, even death. We lose close friends for the above reasons or through growing apathy, health of body or mind, and the busyness of life these days. The present busy days are full of distractions and many do not want or care to bother with very meaningful things such as relationships. The opportunities for real closeness are separated by phones, tablets and computers instead of face to face conversations. Communication between people is hastily written in a text instead of a letter actually written by your hand. The letter takes too much time and thought in this world. This leads to losing not only the person, but the personality. Just my opinion, discouraging times these days.

  3. I think that we get upset when we lose someone because we think of all the things that might have been, or that could have or should have been. We see a future that will now never be. And that makes us sad, or frustrated, or even sometimes causes us to disconnect from our current lives.

    Whether we lose friends or family to the passage of time or to circumstances beyond control, it’s still painful to one day realize that this person is no longer in our life.
