    Sometimes...

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

    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...

    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...

    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

    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...
