Assuming you believe that there is a higher power, God, then, you may also believe that everything that happens to us; All the situations, people, etc., don't just appear out of nowhere...
Perhaps there is a reason as to why we encounter specific events in our lives...
Instead of feeling like helpless victims, maybe we should be asking ourselves; What is the lesson to be learned? How can I be a better person because of this incident?
Our life experiences and situations don't happen to us, they happen FOR us.
In fact, these are opportunities, gifts that are designed especially for us, in order to find out more about ourselves and others, to learn about life and ultimately to improve and better ourselves.
These experiences are what adds the spice to our lives; That's how we gain wisdom and enrichment, making us better equipped to handle any "curveball" coming our way.
We must remember, even when life is hard for us, we need to appreciate, give thanks and pray; Never forget to recognize all the good that exists in our lives.
Be grateful for all things, even if you don't necessarily understand everything.
The reason isn't always revealed when we want it, however it all happens for our best and highest good.
