Sometimes people come into our life and we know right away that they are meant to be there... to serve some sort of purpose, teach us a lesson or help us figure out who we want to become. And sometimes things happen to us at the time that may seem horrible painful, and unfair but in reflection we realize that without overcoming those obstacles we would never realize our potential, strength, will power or heart.

I truly believe that everything does happen for a reason. I lived a tough childhood, but learned to grow up fast and take on responsibilities well beyond most of my age. There have also been some very positive moments in my life when certain people came into my life. Everyone is who they are because of where they been, what they have done, and who they have been around.

Hello, I do believe that everything happens for a reason. I am a step ahead in it, I believe everything happens for some good reason. There is no such incident that has entirely negative or entirely positive outcome. If something has a bad part, there must also be some good part too. Now looking at the good part, and leaving out the bad is what I call a positive outlook. Our expectations make things appear as painful, beautiful, unfair etc. But in reality they are just indifferent. Its our perspectives that change and is always reflected on outer world. When something bad happens, I first get shocked, which is quite normal, then I search for something positive into it, coz I know there must be some. Take care... God bless you

Yes dear, That break up changed my entire life. I was confused and complaining about it. But now I thank God for letting me have that experience. I needed a shock that would totally shake my whole world and it did. I am thankful to my ex too, though it may sound surprising. I believe she became a way of God to send his message. Take care

yes i do believe that everything happens for a reason, and everything has its right place and time on earth... people always question almost everything that happens in our lives. we keep on questioning but if we look closer and think wider we will understand that this is something that is meant to happen because if not we will never be the one who the is created to be us. in short, we can never be who we are if not of happenings around us... may be sometimes we think we can make something do not happen, but we are wrong because no matter how we stop time or change place, if it meant to be, it will happen. these are all part of our well-beings... whats important are the learnings we have because of these... just keep on learning...

For me I don't believe because it is not in the bible if your in the wrong place then it is happened in you and there's no reason to say that it is by reason.

I do believe in it because it always happens to me. Sometimes there is such an unexpected situation and some things happens that I don't want to happen. Later on I will realize that things got better because it happens and what I am expecting maybe can worsen it. I just trust god because I know if it is his will it will get better than what you expected.

I am total agree with you! I think everything exsit in the world has it's own reason, and what happen in our life has it's cause and effect. And i also do believe that good people will have good ending, and bad people will have their days.

Yup, I believe that everything happens for a reason. No matter how painful things may be, it still happens for a reason. Maybe to make you realize something or grow a little than yesterday. Experience are there to hone people and make them better.

I can't say that absolutely everything happens for a reason, but I've experienced situations, where events just don't seem to be accidental. Sometimes, when I had done something bad, I've harmed someone, it seems, like it comes back around to me. Kind of karma or stuff. I don't know, what's behind it, but IT takes also care of me. I mean, when I've got myself into some (serious) trouble, there were many times I got out of it without serious consequences. Also, if I want something so badly and I work hard on it, I always get it. Even if I don't seem to be handling it, I finally find a way to solution. So, it seems like something affects the events that happen around us.

I honestly believe that things happen for a reason whether we chose to believe it or not the reason why we go through hard times is to learn and grow and hopefully learn from them so that way our souls will evolve more and gain more knowledge so that one day we can finally be free of it all but yeah everyone we come across is one of our soul members or soul mates if you chose to believe. Everything happens for a reason just have faith

In my opinion - Yes, everything happens for a reason. Any step we do, any mistake, any friend, any enemy . . . Everything is teaching us a lesson. I was not that sure before, but during my life there were many situations teaching me that every bad thing is followed by something good. The time is giving us strength to realize this.

I strongly believe that everything happens for a reason. just what you have said that people come into our life and we know right away. that is the reason why that people come, for us to figure it out the things may happen to us. for our future choices to make. all things that is happening to our life has its own reason why it is like that. everything happens for a reason.. and why you are here living on earth.. for a reason!..

Yes, I do believe that everything happens for a reason. We might not always know what that reason is, but there is a reason. I think that, at one point or another, we might have to try and accept that reason, whether we know it or not.

Hello ckrivera! Yes, everything definitely happens for a reason. There is significance in every event of our lives, from the most joyful and empowering to the inexplicable or seemingly unjust. Every person we meet will have an impact in our life. We learn from these people we meet. The successes and downfalls that you experience can create whom you are, and the bad experiences can be learned from. Every problem is actually a potential learning experience that can teach you how to live your life more effectively -- providing that you understand why the problem happened in the first place.

I do. Sometimes I may complain why things are like that, but then I realize that there must be a reason why this is happening, maybe this is what God wants for me. And when I think of God and his plans for me, I just trust Him with it. Some things don't make sense at first--their positive implications just show at a later time. And then we don't regret anything that took place. We actually become thankful for it.
