Does Everything Really Happen For A Reason?

does everything happen for a reason
Guilia Bertelli

I’ve been questioning, “does everything happens for a reason?” for a pretty long time in my life. As we get older, a lot of things occur in our life, which might be good/happy things or bad/sad things.

There are things that we are in control, but I would say that there are much more things that we are out of control.

That’s just how life works and we got to deal with it. But the important thing is to own the things that we are capable to be in control in life because those are the things that will change your life for the good. The things that are out of our control are what they are, and whatever will be, will be. All you got to do is to learn how to deal with them. Of course, easier said than done but at least we have to try. Most of the things in life don’t come easily, so you just need to be positive towards everything and believe what is meant to be will be.

We are human and there are times that we feel down and negative. That’s the most natural thing that a human can feel, and that’s the same as feeling happy and positive. I guess people tend to think more negatively when things aren’t going the way they want in life. It’s because we feel emotionally down and that leads to negative thoughts. But I tell you, negative thoughts won’t lead you to anything good. I’m not saying you should never feel negative, because I think you actually need to feel the negativity to become positive. But don’t let the negativity drown you for a long time. Let it be there for a little while, and let it go. If you spend too much time being negative, then you’ll waste your precious life.

You got to believe everything that happens in life, happens for a reason.

When a good thing happens in life just genuinely be happy and appreciate it. When a bad thing happens in life just think that it’s a lesson for you to become a stronger and wiser person. We all have ups and downs and that’s the law of life. You just have to work on it, and let the rest just happen. Through all my experience in life, now I believe that everything happens for a reason.
