    Thank You, Doctor.

    I never had a moment where I asked that question "Why do bad things happen to good people?" Before today. Early this morning, my mother got an email from her father saying that my pediatrician (whom I haven't seen in years) was reported missing on Monday. She was last seen...

    I Really Do Wonder Why.

    I do think about this. I see so many good people working hard that deserve a break. Instead, several of them just keep receiving obstacles that they have to overcome. There's so many bad people on the other hand that get lucky and come out on top. For example, you see all these...

    Bad Things

    I just can't figure this out. Some people have all this good luck. Then others have bad. I guess myself would be in the good person with bad luck. I'm truly working on this now. I have removed all negative people from my life. And allow only positive people in my life. I also put...

    "Karma"

    This is why I don't believe in karma. Because bad things happen to good people all the time, even more often than bad things happen to bad people. Bad things would never happen to good people if karma were actually real. They would only happen to people doing bad things, not...

    I hate seeing people upset or hurt. I'm very sensitive to other people's feelings and I always want to make people happy. It can be a great personality trait, but also a flaw.

    Whenever I do bad things, I meant to do the best thing I could do. Something that would eventually be helpful for everybody. I wouldn't do it for myself. Never.
