    Good Friends

    One of my best friends ever has been very unfortunate health-wise. Well, actually three have, but this is about one of them. She's one of the nicest and coolest people I've ever met; I've only heard her say bad things about people a total of 5 times ever. She really wouldn't hurt...

    I understand why bad things happen to good

    people but I don't like it. I believe bad things happen to good people so that they can over-come obstacles and become stronger people at the end of the day.

    They don't deserve it!

    Why should good people suffer?!? It's painful to watch a good person being put down and almost destroyed because of the overloading overwhelming bad things! I don't get it... good people work their socks off and put in every effort they got and they don't get what they deserve...

    My heart <3 and condolences go out to the families, friends and other workers of the 19 firefighters who lost their lives in Yarnell, Arizona. TRUE heroes who risked their lives to stop a force as indestructible and remorseless as a fire. They are real heroes, not like cops...

    When I hear these stories

    when bad things happen to such good people it’s hard to stay optimistic, I believe that when you do something bad it comes back to bite you in the ***….. But when I do something good it mostly puts me in an awkward situation or something nasty happens to me! When do good...

    So there's this app called Uber.

    If you haven't heard of it, it an app where you can schedule a car to pick you up. Anyone can be an Uber taxi, you just need a car. So my friend called his Uber, it picked him up and they were on their way... On the highway my friend ( who is a male) was pulled out if the cab...

    The Perfect Example

    One of my best friends is probably the greatest guy I know. But for the last two years nothing but bad things happen to him. It seems like everyday, something new is going wrong. What I hate the most is there is nothing I can do. Nothing at all. Makes me feel like a terrible...

    Sometimes...

    But sometimes, if bad things didn't happen to a good person, they wouldn't be the good person that they are today.

    To all the good people: At a constant war with

    life. It's ammunition makes us suffer. Until there's nothing left to defend ourselves with but faith. Faith that there's a reason for our constant battle. That there's something better waiting for us. There's nothing left. So it seems. when this is all designed to be a dream...

    The Truth

    i don't because you might be a good person but maybe you're much stronger than you think you are, so it's something called discipline that helps you get stronger: like wise, those who never fell, never learned anything new. 1 corinthians 10:13 "no temptation has overtaken you...

    And few come true. But some do. So why stop. The world sick from industry. May make my wish come true.
