Bad Things Happen to Good People

The world continues to be in crisis.

Hundreds of thousands of people have contracted COVID-19, not to mention people are dying, millions have lost their jobs, tremendous social inequities are being experienced, racism is running rampant, and so much more.

So many of us are struggling and in pain, and we’re railing against the Universe, trying to uncover a reason for what’s been happening. We keep thinking, “I am a good person. Why is this happening to me?”

I’m experiencing some really tough personal and professional moments myself right now, and one thing that I’m finding to be really helpful during this difficult time is to think of what my friend Jami told me years ago, after I’d gone through a bad breakup: Bad things happen to good people.

This simple statement has stuck with me because it is so true. Bad things happen to every one of us. It’s how we perceive these obstacles and deal with them that matters.

In this video, I share how this simple message has helped me to get through difficult times — including this moment.
