    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...

    It's Not Fair

    I just don't understand why bad things happen to good people. It's the people with the biggest hearts that go through so much pain. While people who don't care about others and only about themselves tend to get far in this life. So much suffering and pain it just kills me. I wish...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
