Why does life bring bad things happen to good people? This is a question that many have asked themselves at some point in their lives and most often they are left with a puzzled expression and an empty wallet. When you think of life as a puzzle, you start to see how all the pieces fit together and how all the pieces have come together only because you have put them there. Life just makes sense, and when it does not make sense, that is when you start to question why bad things happen to good people.
The first reason why bad things happen to good people is that the universe does not believe in them. This means that when you pray, go to church or attend AA meetings, you are really praying for your well being, but because you are not seeing an increase in your favor with the universe, your prayers will go in vain. You cannot expect for things to be different when you walk through the door to go to work every day. When you are in pain, there is a reason for that and it is not because the world is angry with you. There is a reason for why your job has been lost and you are missing out on the job opportunity that you could have had if you did not get sick and miss time from work.
The second reason why bad things happen to good people is that there is just something about the universe that just does not care about you. Sure, life may be cruel and unpredictable and things may get set in motion for you that you do not see coming, but this is only because you have let randomness win in your life and because you have allowed your faith and your good intentions to blind you to what is actually happening in the universe. In order to win against adversity in your life and to succeed, you must learn to look at your situation objectively. You must learn to see the connections between the bad things that are happening in your life and the random events that have happened around you. If you can connect these dots, you will see that adversity really does have a reason to happen to you.
