You hear often ‘you don’t know what you had til its gone’. Fact of the matter is people know what they have, which is why they have it, but they never take into consideration they will ever lose it, until its too late.
When people have something good for a running period of time, just as any situation, over time you get comfortable. What I don’t fully understand is why does the reality or threat of having that good thing taken away need to occur for a person to once again appreciate what it is they have? At that time where the possibility of you losing something occurs, it is too late, minds have been made up and impressions have been made.
I’m not saying its ever too late to make a change, just may not be in time for the situation that forces you to open your eyes and make that change.
