I Believe Things Happen For a Reason

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 402 People

    I met you for a reason; although the reason is

    still not clear.. there's a lot of "what if's" between us, but we still continue to live in reality.. I believe we are meant to be a different "US" something that we should explore beyond what others couldn't possibly imagine..

    You asked, "When did you find yourself?

    " And I simply said, "When somebody loved me." Until now, I didn't realize how true that was. Thinking back, I wasn't afraid of loving him or being with him. No, I was afraid of losing him when I let myself go, when he took a good look and saw the real me. That I wasn't what...

    There Are No Coincidences

    Today I had an appointment with a careers consultant. The date had been set quite a while ago and my concern had become increasingly important, so I was quite anticipant about how it would go. I was greeted by a sympathetic looking woman with a big round face and soft friendly...

    On my way home, briskly putting one foot

    after the other, I was lost in thought. And exactly at that moment when I was silently contemplating that I simply must endure the toss-ups in my life, bear with my heart when it's troubled, and get on with it.... I looked up, and my gaze focused directly on a truck driving...

    The strangest thing happened today.

    .. I thought I should tackle a task on my to-do list. After doing an online search, I found a notebook that seemed like a suitable buy and checked where I could do a hands-on inspection in a city store. After noting the route and opening times, I set off on a pretty long trek...

    Sometimes we have an experience

    that we don’t understand, but if we look deeply, or wait long enough, a reason for that experience will usually reveal itself. All the events in our lives lead to other events, and all that we have manifested in this present moment is the result of past events and experiences...
