Everything happens for a reason. This is one of the things that I’ve always believed, even as a child I thought this way. For me, I see it as if the universe and God (I’m spiritual, but do believe in God) who creates such trivialities for each person to face, who creates such paths that each person has to take in order to not only figure themselves out, but also to figure out the world and those who inhabit it. We face heartbreak, loss, love, prosperity, poverty. It truly is inevitable. In all honesty, life is not definite only death is.
When you look back on your past, what is it that you see? Do you see the heartbreaks that you endured? Do you see the rise and fall of your rollercoaster life? If yes, then congratulations, you are human. All humans endure these trivial issues, all humans face feeling lost and finally finding themselves in the mist of a great battle that is fighting in their hearts and minds. Not one person can truly say that they have it all figured out. I don’t even have it figured out. I do not know what truly lies in store for me in the future, I do not know what will become of me when I have become thirty, fifty, or eighty years old. And neither do you. You may fantasize about what you will have accomplished in the next ten, thirty or fifty years, but in truth you do not know. The universe and God (s) (if you believe in them) create obstacles, create paths, create people that are meant for you and you alone. You may go get your future read from a fortune teller, tarot cards or any other means, but you will only get glimpses, and in between those glimpses you cannot fill in those blank spaces. You can say that a specific thing will happen, but that is your imagination at play unless you possess the gift of sight and can see into the future. You will have plenty of breakups until you meet the one you will end up with forever; you will suffer great loss of friends, relatives and great loves; you will face obstacles every day, every month and every year to better yourself for not only now, but also for the future. Life is mysterious, and it’s best to keep it that way. And anything that comes your way, I know that you will face it head on, striking it down like an ax that hits a tree. Yes, these trivialities that you face right now may seem like it is the end of the world, but I can guarantee you that it is not. You are strong, you are fierce, you are compassionate and you can do anything and face anything that the universe throws at you. It is natural to feel as though you’ve felt defeated, but trust me when I say this, do not get defeated. Fight back with full force, face the universe head on and overcome any obstacle and any triviality that may come your way. Everyone faces moments when they feel like they cannot go on, they feel like they wish that they hadn’t had to go through some sort of torture, but then once they’ve hit that light that is at the end of the tunnel, that is when they realize that everything does happen for a reason and that reason is the make you a stronger, compassionate person who doesn’t back down no matter what is thrown at him or her.
