    Consider

    Some people have had tragedy in their lives. Truly hard events that shake their world. But for many the things that hurt us, the things that cause us distress are the smaller things. The things that in the grand scheme of things are small...and perhaps petty. But it's funny how...

    We may not understand why,

    it may take a long time for the story to unfold. But I do believe that some people are meant to be part of our life, that there is a reason our paths crossed. Sometimes the person is only in our life for a brief moment, but long enough to change us, to make a difference...

    we don't meet people by accident.

    They are meant to cross our path for a reason.

    for a reason too. Hopefully always for positive reasons and not negative ones. That's just my feeling. I am religious however so maybe that plays a part in my thinking.

    The Story of 'US' from the Individual Statuses We Posted

    First, the disavowal… NONE of this is true. It’s total fiction and in the extremely unlikely chance that anything in this story even remotely resembles truth, I wouldn’t know it. So, please take this in the spirit it’s intended—total fiction—just a fun way of thinking...
