rational or escapist.....?

May 4, 2011 9:49am CST
I always give reasons to all the things that was happening in my life. They say everything little things good or bad that happens to our life has a reason but not all the things can be explained. when im hurt, when im in pain and when someone i really love is the cause i give reasons i try to really understand the person for me to feel relief though i know im still hurt. Sometimes my pain and sufferings are cause by a certain situation and for me to feel ok i always try to be rational, i try to give reasons over and over again. is my way of dealing with situations are good or am i being a escapist??

I believe that everything happens for a reason. I think it is good for a person to deal with situations that way.

I do the same...I always look for reasons for why this happened or why that happened. Most of the time you can come up with a logical reason for why this or that happened but there are times when you can't for the life of you think why. This is the starting point at which you can answer even these tough questions but you need a little help. I do not know if you have heared of Plato the Greek philosopher but he said, as within, so without. Basically he is saying as you think and feel so you will see these things in the outside world. A similar thing is said in the bible, 'Seek and ye shall find, ask and it will be answered. That is roughly the idea. It can equaly be said that all things in our lives is a lesson and if we look we can find the good in any bad situation. The thing to remember is that you are always learning and growing. These are things you will find as you grow older. Another thing to remember is to only take onboard what you feel to be true. Hope that this makes sense.
