The situation going around us. The good and bad things occuring everywhere in the world. All sorts of questions and answers in a given thought of anyone. What purpose can it be?

Hello there! Well, for me i think that things do happen for a reason! i think that things like people coming from different background, culture and different diversity have their reason. Sometimes i would like stumble into some words and when i understood them, my friend would suddenly say that word out of no where! Especially when it is not the words that they usually say! So i do think that things happen for a reason. Like they say when big phenomenon happens they world would end. It is just somethings that are meant to happen and meant to happen. If the would did not populate there would be nothing left on earth and if there were people populating the world and air around us would deteriorate. It is just very funny like why things like this happen but i do believe that there is a reason for them to happen. I think that meeting friends around us are also a reason there. Like why do some people meet friends who are mean, who are actually two-faced but some who are actually very sincere and honest. And why do people fail at time and succeed at times? There is definitely a reason to be like when people failed at somethings they will realize that they should work harder and do better in order to succeed again. As for me i believe that things happen for a reason. :)

I believe there is a logical explanation for all things. I do not believe everything has to happen for a reason.

Hi jobmoone, I do believe everything has a reason behind it. If not they would not be happen. Just take us as an example. We came here at myLot for a reason or two. Even though we came for a different reasons, but we still have a reason why we cam here. I did not believe a single user here come here for nothing. There must be a reason behind their visit. It is the matter of whether he/she realize it or not. Why people die? Because if nobody die everyday then we did not have enough space to live in today. I can not imagine one thing that happen without any reason for it.

This is like which one comes first; Either Egg comes from a Hen or the chick that comes from the egg..coz sometimes things happen for a reason and sometimes based on the reasons something will happen.

Yes I do and I believe also that whatever we do, there will always be consequences. However, I do not believe in a pre-determined destiny. My belief is that whatever we do, we are shaping our destiny. We may not feel the consequences of our actions now but surely we will feel it in the course of our destiny.

Yes, I believe that things happen for a reason. They don't take place randomly. Certain elements have to be present in order to make something happen. It's like planting a fruit tree. The sunlight, water, and fertilizer that the fruit tree needs are the elements that make the tree grow. Ultimately, the tree bears fruits. Without the elements that make the tree grow, fruition will never take place.

For me, I dont think so that things happen for a reason. I believe, they happen because we, humans, are great contributors to what are happening.

Yes, I think so...that's what I believe so. That everything on this earth happens for a reason. It's the same as we are all born with our own mission in life. Everything that God created has it's own purpose. We may not realized it but they are all here because God want it to be. The good things are here because they are our mission to achieve them, while the bad things...well, after doing it...in the end is the realization that we must regret doing the bad things and carry on with the consequences of the wrongdoings.

I believe that most things happen for a reason, a lot of things you cant make sense of but I believe there must be a reason for it happening, otherwise whats the point of it? Even if things just happen for you to learn from them. Ive had some bad things happen to me that really shouldnt have happened, I believe that they have turned me into a better person, and that I would be completely different if they had not happened. Although of course if I could turn back time and stop these happening I totally would.

I am a firm believer in the saying everything happens for a reason. How I feel is that it makes you who you are. If some of the things that have happened in my life had not happened I would be a totally different person than I am now, and I feel that it is for the better.

yes i believe that things happened for the reason and since we cant predict our future we really cant tell, though sometimes things happened because we decided to choose it.

I don't know about this thought. Normally, you'd think about reasons when you're down so it kinda seems like it but if you think about it, there are many reasons that we can incorporate to a certain event so i really don't know.
