because wwe are not as nieve as whwen we were young, As youngsters we lack the knowlege and the foresight that we gain as we get older. when we are young the whole world is ours, But unfortunatly as we get older we get to focused and wraped up in the uninportant things in the world. I asked my self this same question 8 years ago after being a single dad for 4 years from a 15 yr marriage finnaly i looked at what my ex- wife did and realized we need to seek out the kid in us and re learn how to have fun as a child and enjoy the simple things again. I started looking at the world and my life through the eyes of a child again, my 10 yr old son was a big help in this, i became his best friend not just his dad and then i found true love again by loving me first , ive been re maried for 7 yrs in feb.2010 and enjoy every moment of it. I hope this helps, god bless, Oh! you also need to become friends with GOD because he'll introduse you to some realy awsome people.
