Do we ever measure what we have received?

We measure all the shortfalls of Life

Do we ever measure what we have received?

Let us correct our Maths and retrospect upon 

Like happiness, the money we earn, acquaintances, friends, relatives, number of people who care for us, who help us, and for whom we matter.

Let us do it for once,

All our complaints about God, Life will vanish.

What we have received will always be more than what we have lost and the phase in which we have lost. Shortfalls keep us yearning to fill the gaps.

For instances, 

We can’t expect our parents to live till we die because we are asking for their misery. After all, old age after specific years is miserable.

We can’t expect our children to cling to us forever or vice versa because we are a hindrance to their growth and independence. Additionally, we are their liability and not their strength.

We wouldn’t value it if we had more money and knowledge than required. We would rather misuse it. So keeping ourselves occupied in earning money and knowledge would keep our minds sane.
