I Wish Bad Things Didnt Happen To Good People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,459 People

    This is the world we live in.

    It really shouldn't be but it is. Bad people get all the good things, whilst good people get **** on by society, it should be the other way round of course, but it isn't. I'm sure some religious types will harp on about it being a 'God' testing our character or something...

    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...

    Generally, they don't deserve to have it!

    Although I guess that the law of probability and averages gas so special dispensation to allow this in the fine print!!

    I know right? I've never done anything bad!

    I've donated my money to charity, I want to help the world..I'm kind and selfless and yet bad things happen to me... I might have to get knee surgery and now my right eye is all goofed up....eye...surgery sounds horrible. I'd rather die.

    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...

    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...

    Of course I wish that bad things didn't happen to good people. But they do and all the wishing in the world isn't likely to change that.So I choose to accept that it's a fact of life...and move forward.I choose to help people in the throes of bad things happening. I choose to...

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

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

    It seems like I can wash

    and dry all the apples and get the most rotten one. Or sand all the sticks and get the shortest one. Or hunt the cow and receive no steak. Or work the hardest and get no break.

    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.

    To all the good people: At a constant war with

    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...

    Why?

    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...
