Why do bad things happen to good people? That’s the age-old question, and the answer is simply – because they do. This is just a fact of life. So many of us focus on the following thought, “Why did this happen?” and never deal with the situation. As hard as it might be, try to eliminate this from your mind. No matter how many times you ask, it does not change whatever negative thing has happened. Instead, try to deal with the situation. Ask, “What can I do about this?” and then do it. Life is not about how to avoid getting knocked down; it’s about when you get knocked down, finding a way to get back up.
