We always anticipate the end. And when the “end” comes, we try so hard to see anything, any meaning, beyond it. But we cannot see beyond the end. If there is something seen beyond the end, then it is not the end.
It may turn out though, that we had only perceived it to be the “end.” In addition, we reflect on what had been before the end. It is this time of reflection that we become fulfilled, as we realize how exciting and enjoyable things had been. Times of trial and hardship become a declaration of strength and achievement.
Furthermore, endings do not necessarily connote gloominess, hopelessness or sadness.
Since it may end happily ever after. Not just in fairy tales, but also in real life.
