Although some may not agree with it, I am sure that every single person on this earth has heard the saying “Everything happens for a reason.” If I received a dollar for every single time someone said that to me throughout the course of my life, I would rich by now. Even though I have been told this so many times, I still wonder to myself if I even should believe it. I mean, why should I? I have witnessed plenty of things in my life where bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people for no reason that I can identify. How come good people have family members diagnosed with a life threatening illness? How come there are bad people that only wish malic on people but win the lottery? So, why do these things happen? I have never discovered why something happened after knowing that the specific person did not deserve it, so why do so many people drill this concept into my brain when I have never actually seen evidence that it is true?
Do other people feel this way or am I the only one that questions this saying? I find it hard to believe that so many people live by this saying just because they believe it and don’t actually see evidence that it is true. I hope one day I see this evidence and can trust that even though bad things may occur, they always happen for a reason.
