    Why?

    Why does it work this way? All the wonderful people I know always have something horrible happen to them. They don't deserve it. Meanwhile, all of the worthless, cruel people that do bad things & treat people like crap, have everything. I am still waiting for karma to catch up...

    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...

    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.

    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...

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

    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...

    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...

    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...

    There are a lot of bad things that were blessings and more importantly learning experiences for me. Knowledge and growth are always blessings in itself.
