Why Do Bad Things Happen To Good People?


          "If you can think of a reason; any reason at all why the universe is so screwed up and random and mean; now would be an amazingly good time to tell me because I really need some answers." This is what Dr. Meredith Grey (Grey's Anatomy) said and I just found it too relatable. Haven't you noticed how all the horrible things just attack at once? How something terrible happens over which we have no control over? How good people are so susceptible to get affected by bad things? How's it even possible? Why does everything is so screwed up and random and mean?

          There is obviously a reason why I'm writing this post. Firstly, I've seen it happen many times to be able to just suffer in silence. Sometimes it's me and at other times my friends. But this time, its just a realisation. All these random things pop out of nowhere and soon its a huge heap of mess. And it's not possible to just get it over with. It takes persistence and patience.

          There might be a lot of work load; presentations, studies and tension. There might be some relationship problems; crushes, affairs and marriage. There might be some unsettling problems with your peer group; professional and personal. There might possibly just be anything that can happen. And you just have to live through it. There's no pause button. There are no options. There are no intermissions in life. I think that it really sucks to have to deal with a number of issues at once. And I know that life is not a vacation. Even I hate these moments of second guessing, being the sensible one, having a final say and taking all the responsibility. But it's just how it is, right? It doesn't matter how much of a good human being I am, some things always go wrong. More often than I imagine. It's tough but it's life.

  1. I wish I knew the answer to that question Aishwarya. I think that it's over said, but true that they happen because without sadness we would not know happiness. There would be nothing to compare it to.. Just a thought.

  2. Thank you Aishwarya for such a beautiful post! I think this is a very difficult topic to tackle so well done you for doing it so clearly. I hate suffering and I don't know why we must suffer. All that I know is to help when and where you can - whether it's kind words or a helping hand.

  3. Such a very true post. I'm not sure why bad things always happen to such good people. It seems really unfair.

  4. Beautiful post. I agree with your words at the end - we may never know why, but we have to work hard to get through the hard times. And sometimes those are the ones that make us better.

  5. I appreciate so much your honesty in this post.
    As a Christian, I'd like to say two things: 1.) I don't have all the answers. I am a human with limited knowledge. 2.) But I do believe that everything that happens is because God has a plan. A real plan. I believe He is constantly showing himself to us through nature and circumstances around us, and that He wants us to call out to him. And when bad things happen, he isn't trying to torture us. He knows what is best and how every chain of events all around the world works.
    Now, all that said, I don't always love what I see, but I trust my God and I know, and have seen clearly, that his ways are so much better than my own.
