Do you believe everything happens for a reason?
sure.... people makes stupid ass choices and crap happens to them. people make wise choices and live happy lives. as far as random things like cancer and car accidents... some happen because of stupid choices, and some just happen. The key in life is to LEARN from every thing good or bad that happens.
came back to post a bit more.... I think the issue I have with the idea of "its meant to be" is that too many people say it to avoid personal responsibility. I know someone who lost their home... it wasnt "meant to be" it was THEIR fault! And the fact that they immediately started saying "God will provide" bugged the CRAP out of me. Perhaps if they took some personal responsibility for all the stupid choices they made then things wouldnt be the way they are. Some things do just happen.... but more often than not they happen because of choices people made. So using "its meant to be" as your catch all phrase is a comeplete cop out.
No, I don't believe EVERYTHING happens for a reason.
Yes, I do.
