Whatever Happens, Happens For Good
I was going through my Facebook when I saw a status regarding as to how can a person solace himself/herself about “Whatever happens, happens for a reason, and happens for good” and this got me thinking, about the statement and its prospects in my life. It is reasonable that whatever we read and see, we try to find similarities and implications of it from our life and of those surrounding us.
And then the answer presented to me in a simple fashion, we are usually used to seeing shorter aspects of things, of life. Whenever something negative happens, unless we make peace with it with a greater understanding, we end up thinking about it, and that part is usually negative, we may blame ourselves for it, or God, or maybe even the people around us, who were in the same situation. And all such thinking rarely provides comfort to us, rather it muddles us up, makes us confused and at odds with everyone around.
This is why it is said that the bad times are usually the most testing times for us. For then, not only do we have to fight the situation, but we also have to steady ourselves, and that is not at all easy at times.
There are no issues to living life one day at a time, it certainly can be more satisfying but when in such situations, that shorter aspect fails us, for we are so used to it, that at times, we become a nervous wreck.
However the point being here is that, there are times when you must look at the broader aspect of things, that is when you’d recognise the good prevalent in your life, or in your actions. And this also has a lot to do with how we process happiness and goodness, so unless we have near about impossible standards, most of us will, when looking at their life through a lens, will realise how it has been shaped by things that we have gone through.
Each and every struggle whether it be good/bad, we have lived through it all. It all depends upon how you are dealing with it; if you look at how your life was 1, 2 or even 5 years ago, you’ll see the difference between then and now, you’ll realise just how much change, time and these “reasons” have made in your life, you’ll be more stronger on the inside, with a better understanding and more experience, and you’ll realise the good of “whatever happened”, and you shall end up being content by whatever good you have seen.
It’s natural that everyone wants quick results, oh how would we not love if we could do less and achieve more, but ultimately it’s about patience, which we fail to see in our haste of finding the result or the good on an immediate basis. Wanting quick results is no problem, but not understanding that all results aren’t just as quick to reveal themselves, is.
