“Everything Happens For A Reason.”

You know how sometimes certain things just trigger you more than any other times? Say, for example, a quote: “Everything happens for a reason.” It’s a common, well known quote that not everyone agrees on or is fond of. But perhaps one day, a quote so cliche as that, all of a sudden made sense. Why? Why now? Because now you can relate. Now you understand that life is not always sweet; it has its bitter days and sour moments. Now, now you know that if it weren’t for your parents failed marriage, your father’s lack of attention, your family’s lack of understanding, your best friend’s betrayal, your ex’s shortcomings, your inability to trust, you would not be where you are right now. And where you are right now may not be paradise, but for the first time in a long time, you feel as though the weight on your back has finally been lifted. You’re content. You’re smiling, you’re laughing, you’re breathing.

No, it sure as hell is not paradise, but it sure is better than where you were before. It’s real, and it’s happening now.

 “Everything happens for a reason“, they say.

 Believe it.

Because it does.
