My faith and that belief are what keep me going. If it weren't for knowing that everything happens for a reason, I would truly hate my life. So much crap has happened. If it weren't for knowing that everything happens for a reason, I would still be terribly upset and angry that my 5 year old cousin died of a brain tumor.. and that my 21 year old cousin now has one. I would be mad that we are poor and barely making it. I would be mad that my father is neglective and has become something I hate and love at the same time. I would be mad that mom deserves so much more and doesn't get it. I would be angry and upset about so many things, many more than I have listed here... but knowing that everything happens for a reason allows me to look past it all and see a bright future. Without that knowledge... lord knows where I'd be today.
