Everything happens for a reason
I know this is sometimes hard to accept or believe in the midst of it, but it is true.
Or at least I believe it is and I perform better because I believe this.
Have you heard it said: “People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.”
It is the idea that no matter how good, or how painful a role they played, they taught us something, something that will reveal itself to us at some point.
This goes hand in hand with the concept of everything happening for a reason.
While there may be unpleasant lessons that happen, they are lessons nonetheless.
We have to be open to the pain and difficulty, to be truly open to what it is we are supposed to gain from an experience.
At times when we are going through a particularly difficult time, it can be very comforting to think that there is a purpose to this, so let’s look at some advice about this point:
Quotes About Why Everything Happens for a Reason
1. “I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” — Marilyn Monroe
3. “Realize that if a door closed, it’s because what was behind it wasn’t meant for you.” ― Mandy Hale
5. “I wouldn’t change anything. I think that it’s important to let things happen, and stay ‘happened’. I think that’s all part of the learning curve, part of fate. I’m just glad that it happened.” — Mike Peters
7. “In the final analysis, the questions of why bad things happen to good people transmutes itself into some very different questions, no longer asking why something happened, but asking how we will respond, what we intend to do now that it happened.” — Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
