Sandboxing bad things

Scott H Young at his own site writes an article on how to deal with bad things (full article at http://www.scotthyoung.com/blog/2010/06/22/letting-bad-things-happen/).

I agree with Scott on most of the things said, but one thing really made me think: “[…] “If you want to invent life-saving medicine, you need to accept that at some point, people will die.” […]“.

Ok. Is only a representation of something bigger, but is the key point.

Life is not everytime full of good things. Also for very lucky people, bad things happen.

And there’s no absolute measure for bad or good things, because my 3yrs daughter cries for having lost her doll and I understand there’s a pain in her drops bigger than other “adult” feelings.

Sometime is better to have bad things happen in a sort of sandbox created through anticipation and governance where possible. And if they happen in a sudden way, IMHO there’s nothing wrong in being disappointed and then restart from what happened.
