Did you experience any of the following?

These are few examples of things we try hard to find and then to lose them. The amazing thing here is that we humans try to avert losses, but then we lose what is good for us. Why do we insist on doing the wrong things when we know the right answers? For example, we know that creative ideas have short life spans; paradoxically, we keep ignoring recording them on the spot and only to feel their loss and regret afterwards. This causes us to suffer and yet we continue repeating the same.
This reminds me of a buzz that my friend David Navarro López wrote on forging of characters. In cold forging we change the shape like we change our shapes by exercising and dieting. Cold forging may lead to revert to type. It is hot forging that introduces new characters, new behaviors and new us.I wish you would help me and others find answers to my question. I promise not to lose you for whatever feedback you may contribute
