Bad Things Happen to Good People

 

I was going through a bad breakup many years ago and was barely hanging on. I couldn’t sleep, eat or think. I was so mad at the Universe for the pain I was going through. I kept thinking, "I am a good person, after all, focused on doing good, Why is this happening to me?"

I confided in my friend Jami about the struggle I was having and she said something so powerful to me. She said, “Bad things happen to good people.” That simple statement has stuck with me because it is so true. At the end of the day, bad things do happen to every one of us; it’s how we perceive these obstacles and deal with them that matters.
