“Everything happens for a reason” is one of my truths.
When I first started believing this, it was only in hindsight because I was removed enough from the pain of the experience to see its lessons. As I noticed more and more incidents in my life that supported this truth, it became stronger and stronger.
And as that has happened, I have been able to employ this truth while being in some terrible, no-good situations. This has required a lot of trust to believe. And sometimes I don’t choose that wider lens because, after all, I am human and sometimes things just suck.
Maybe one day I will be able to have that lens 24/7/365 and maybe not. Only time will tell.
While I feel this truth deep in my bones, I do not think this is a truth for me to preach to others as gospel because if I were to do that, it’d basically be gaslighting the hurt that people feel. This truth is mine alone and not anyone else’s unless they feel it deep in their bones as well.
