The Last Time or Never Again?
What’s the difference? The net result is the same, an action or experience is not repeated.
I’ve been thinking a lot about this recently and believe it comes down to time frame and perspective. Never again is usually an action of avoidance, the result of an unpleasant experience. The last time could be the result of natural aging (the last time you rode in a pram), a change in personal preferences, things wearing out, moving to a new home or city, or you decide to focus on something new.
When will that last time come and can you experience it with joy and gratitude instead of sadness for the loss?
