Do you believe that? It basically means that things will get much worse before they get better. Have you experinced this? Do you think it is true. Do things have to get worse before they can get better? and if so, how much worse?

Yes I do feel things have to get worse before they get better. The reasoning is in the saying itself. I think it just makes you appreciate things more. You have to have the bad things in life to appreciate the good and see how special it is. You wouldn't appreciate your good health if there wasn't any sickness. You wouldn't appreciate sunny days if it weren't for rain. Hope what I'm saying makes sense to you.

You know what? Iam not trying to be negative in life but then, does it really make any sense that life has to be worse before getting better. Does it always go that way? If that's the case, we are not the one controlling how our life goes because we rely on these words expecting that our life will be as good as others because we are experiencing difficulties in our lives and expecting that bright future is ahead of us. All of the things that apply to this saying are just mere coinsidence and never should be the case or our outlook in life. Why not make our lives better immediately and do not let anything gets in our way and make things worse and then believe that in the end of the day, things will get better.
