I Believe Everything Happens For a Reason

I have always believed this as far back as I can remember. Even the bad things or rough times we have to endure during our lives I think are there to help shape us into stronger people and to teach us a life lesson depending on the circumstances involved. I think that good things and bad things that we experience help to build our character. I believe that people are brought into our lives for a reason. Sometimes its a good thing sometimes it's not but there is always something to be learned by it. Through most of it we gain strength and learn a lot along the journey.

I would like to add to this story that I am not implying that people deserve the bad things such as diseases, murder or war. I know that life is not one big bowl of cherries I just think that a lot of our struggles through life and the people we meet help to teach us and we learn from that. I believe that we learn from good experiences and in really bad ones God willing we gain strength. We all know that really bad things happen to good people everyday. Is it fair? NO of course not but it can give us strength and the will to survive. I have survived horrible things such as physical abuse by a spouse, I have been homeless with a child, I have been raped! I realize a lot of others have suffered the same things I have had to go through. Guess what though? It made me one hell of a strong woman!

YES A STRONG WOMAN N YES EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON LIFE IS A BUMPY ROAD WE WILL HAVE BOTH GOOD N BAD EXPERIENCES AND WE MUST GAIN THE STRENGHT N WILL TO OVERCOME THEM MY RESPECT TO YOU YES YOUR A STRONG WOMAN NO DOUBT ABOUT IT

I admit there are a lot of things that happen in life that are very tragic and can't be explained if you are looking for the reason why they have to happen at all. I certainly do not suggest that anyone asks for these things or deserves these terrible things. Things like war, rape and murder have been around practically since the beginning of time. If you believe in God or the Devil then most would conclude it's good vs evil. Why? I don't know why I am not God and I am not the Devil I just think that a lot of things we experience through life shape us into who we become as adults.

How do yo feel about breast cancer, AIDS, napalm, rape, war, auto accidents, murder,,,, etc.? Are these all things that happen for a reason?
