Everything happens for a reason

Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good or bad luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, if they be events, illnesses or relationships, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. If someone hurts you, betrays you , or breaks you heart, forgive them. For they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to who you open your heart to. If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because they are teaching you to love and opening your heart and eyes to things you would have never seen or felt without them. Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from it everything that you possibly can, for you may never be able to experience it again. Talk to people you have never talked to before, and actually listen. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don't believe in yourself, no one else will believe in you either. You can make of your life anything you wish. Create your own life and then go out and live it .

this is all good for people to read but there are some sad situations going on in peoples lives and that would be terrible for someone to think it happened on purpose. like a man beating upon my daughter or my mother so depressed she can't answer her own phone. life for some is out of this world crazy.

Lets define things happen for a reason. I see it a little differently. I do believe in karma, but I doubt things happen for a specific reason. Let me explain. If someone betrays you or does something bad to you, now follow me, if it is done for some specific reason, it depends on whether or not the person should be forgiven. Lets say you were married, or in a long term relationship. If someone betrayed you in the act of lets say cheating or lying or being sneaky. I do not feel that that should be forgiven. Not in any way. Now if someone did something bad to you, now this could be intentional or by accident. Obviously, the accident is forgivable. But not the intentional one. I believe we all have a good side and a bad side. If someone exercises the bad side, well thats on them, not me and it is not my place to make things better. I watch and listen to people. I always check the person out without them even knowing I'm doing it. I make my own assessments. So, do things really happen for a reason? No, not really. Someone would not shoot you because that was supposed to happen. They did it because they had no regard for you. Should that be forgiven? Hell no. Not at all. So, the statement, Things Happen for a Reason, has a lot of grey area. Therefore it was not meant to be.

I couldn't agree more from all the things you said if all the people will think that way I guess peace and forgiveness is really possible and everybody then will be rich in wisdom and see the goodness from each individual

i don't believe that things happen by chance either. but, i also don't believe that things happen because a god is testing you. things happen good or bad because of karma.
