Everything happens for a reason

I wholeheartedly agree with 99% of this post. However, I’m happy with who I am so wouldn’t change a thing. Don’t get me wrong, I certainly wouldn’t opt for a brain injury in advance! But “everything happens for a reason”…quote

Only by experiencing the bad, can we fully appreciate the good πŸ™‚

My Broken Brain

So you may know by now that one of my favourite go-to quotes is the one of β€˜everything happens for a reason’. But, sometimes I find this almost impossible to live by. Sometimes things happen that I can see absolutely no reason for whatsoever.

It seems to me that bad things happen to good people. And the older I get the more this seems to be the case. There have been so many tragedies throughout history, with no explanation as to why they have happened.

Why should people have to live with nothing whilst others have more money and possessions than they could ever need? Why do some people have to go through life changing illnesses whilst others breeze through life taking no care of their bodies or minds and living an entire lifetime? Why do some children have to lose their parents, some parents have to lose their children…

  1. Excellent reshare Nick.. yes Bad things happen to good people… I so agree….And I so admire even more how people deal with the hand that they have been dealt, and show the rest of the world the strength it takes to rebuild their lives.. While others often moan who have nothing to complain about..
    have a great week

    • Hi Sue! I agree, bad things do happen to good people. I like to think that it’s because life deems people good enough to deal with this crap πŸ™‚

      The only thing that I disagree with is that I don’t think anybody should belittle their problems. Everybody’s problems are relative and affect them in different ways.

      Take care!

      • Yes, I was taught that lesson some years ago when I went through a very bad nervous breakdown.. While in recovery I kept saying there were people far worse off than myself… My therapist helped me understand that to each person their own problem no matter how small, was still a significant problem for them to over come… She taught me a lot about myself and helped me come to terms with myself more.. πŸ™‚

  2. Back in University days, I got a part-time job working for a brilliant scientist who was a holocaust survivor. He said once that instead of holding God responsible when bad things happen to good people, he thought that people only needed to accept responsibility–credit or blame– for the things they do themselves. He said that has to be the reason for free will.

    • I agree with you to a certain extent in that people have to take responsibility for their actions. I don’t believe in any sort of divine intervention.

      I absolutely love when somebody’s point of view triggers thoughts like this. Basically…

      I feel that we are living out every possible outcome of every choice we might make in life. For instance, if you were playing darts and got a bull’s-eye, there would be alternate versions of you who got every possible number on dartboard, each within a separate alternate universe. I like to think that “this” universe is a culmination of the best outcomes to every possible situation. Hence, everything does happen for a reason πŸ™‚

  3. I don’t buy into the ‘everything happens for a reason’ platitude but I guess there are reasons why things happen ~ like being in the wrong place at the wrong time; or some unknown in terms of why people who never smoked a cigarette and lived a healthy, healthy life can get swept away by lung cancer.
    I think that underlying ‘everything happens for a reason’ in some cases is a religious belief that ‘God sends us crosses to bear etc.’ As a non-religious type, this doesn’t resonate with me at all but I can see why some religious people might say it as it is part of their belief system and don’t stop to think that maybe others don’t share that.

    • 1st of all, thanks for the email πŸ™‚

      Secondly, I am so glad that I copied my previous comment! Is quite long winded but I went off on one and it applies here as well:

  4. For sure! Once we are here we wouldn’t sign that contract again we did before we came. Different point of view… lol. But in the end it is exactly that what makes us developing and the persons who we have become and are about to become. Where you went through made develop insights you could have never done without. So why ever it had to happen, you grew immensely on it. And now you are such an encouraging role model for others.

  5. Sorry, but have to disagree. Sometimes things happen but there is only the reason that it happens. Ond wins from it one looses from it.

  6. Theres a fair bit of truth in those words, Nick.

    We take so much in our lives for granted and only, truly, appreciate them when they have gone, by which time it is too late. Live for the moment, I always say. If an opportunity you were looking for comes along, grab it with both hands, hold on tight and ride the whirlwind.

    Be well and keep blogging, my friend and above all else, Keep Smiling 😊
