The greatest lost I've ever experienced was when the person whom like a mother to me, gives up on me. We had a little conflict but she broadens it. Our closeness was lost.

The loss of my career due to my ongoing mental illness.
The entire experince has led me to be more positive towards myself, but the loss still threatens to undermind it. While learning to live on I doubt Ill never not hold that regret.

That's a funny comment! I believe that if you keep on doing what you want to do and keep on dreaming you will always feel young - age does not matter!

It's hard to pick a singular greatest but I guess it may be the loss of one who I considered my closest friend. I wish I could talk to that person again like we used to...

My greatest loss was the loss of innocence. The devastating realisation that people can do such horrible things to each other and seeing hatred for the first time changed everything for me. The trusting, carefree innocence of childhood, once gone, can never be returned.

I have'nt lost anyone dear to me yet, but the greatest loss I've ever experience is pursuing the career you dream of. However, it has taught me to value what I took as alternative and move on.

I don't like talking about this but losing my parent while I was young it was very terrible still it made me grow stronger and I don't think anyone should wish to experience that life?

However, a month ago we lost my husband's grandfather, who was more of a father to him than grandfather. It hit our family very hard, especially my son, who just turned 6. It's painful to think that he won't get the priviledge of remembering everything like we will.
I am glad you haven't lost anyone close to you because the pain is unbearable

Without question my mother. She died too young when my daughter was only two. I shall always wonder how they would related and what my mother could have taught her. We were very close and I am grateful that my daughter and I share the same bond and can talk about anything.

I think the greatest loss that I could ever experience will be the loss of my parents.

Don't I know the feeling! We lost Mama October last year. In fact, I visited her just now. I miss her.
