Two sides different in their own ways but both needed to make any coin complete. This is how certain things in life are.
Like any normal person desires and ambition drive you forward. Make you dream high.
But on the other side some set backs in life ,like the loss of dear ones act like a kind reminder to tell you ,life is fragile, and you cannot decide for yourself. There is an external force and its him, who decides for you your life,all the happiness glories and sorrows.
So like the sides of a coin we all should learn to balance the two aspects. Carry forward your aspirations ,like wise cherish and nurture the love of dear ones.
Life really is too short ..
