Life’s Two Tragedies

A really old dude told me yesterday that there are two tragedies in life, one is not getting what you want, and the other is getting it. I didn’t understand it, but here is what I think. If we are constantly stuck in these two states (the state of wanting, and the state of getting), then logically we are constantly living in a tragedy. But if our whole life is a tragedy, that means our whole life is not a tragedy. Because it is the happy moments that make the sad ones seem sad, without contrast to present relativity that is no distinct happiness or sadness. So try to think more on the positive end the next time you think “life sucks”, cause if it really is a tragedy, at least you get to choose the ending cause you are your life’s own screenwriter, right? unless you are living a life already written for you by someone else.
