Sometimes we wonder “Why is this happening to me?” The usual answer that follows is something along the lines of “Life isn’t fair” or “You somehow, in some way deserved whatever is happening to you”. Although those might be true, people often forget that things happen to us because it’s those are the consequences of a series of actions. Our actions, other’s actions, rules that need to be followed, morals or principles that apply all determine the consequence or result of something. Things don’t just happen to you. Things happen to you because many decisions led to that thing happening to you.
At the end of the day, you can think of it in a negative way, or you can see it in a positive way. Recently at my part-time job, I am not getting a lot of hours. Which sucks because the goal of any student working in the summer is to save up as much money as possible. So, I could sit here and wonder, why me? Or I could look at it from a different perspective. I can see this as the universe giving me an opportunity to focus on my blog more, to spend more time with people I’ve been meaning to by haven’t been able to, or maybe to volunteer.
You always have the choice to look at the answer to the “Why is this happening to me?” question and decide how you will react to it. You can see it as a bad thing, and that the universe is trying to ruin your life, or you can see it as the universe forcing you to realize things in your life that need to be dealt with.
But do keep in mind, many things that happen in life, happen because its a way to test us, to make us stronger and to grow as a person. Not all bad things that happen to us are intrinsically bad.
Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!
