Something that makes you realise that everything happened for a reason. The only reason why I still believe things that are not turning out right, right now, are for a reason.
Because, always, always, in hindsight, I found that they shaped my life, changed me who I was for the better.
Why I say this?
Recently, something happened to me, or rather, something I put a tentative step forward for didn’t happen.
It was a very confusing time. I wanted to stick out one toe and check the situation – and wanted it to work out.
Then, once I set things in motion, and saw the kind of people I was dealing with (many masks came undone), I realised that I had miscalculated by a huge margin.
But the things were already progressing and I was helpless but to watch it move forward. I had somehow found a way to deal with it, but to my surprise it came to a grinding halt.
Suddenly, I found myself freed from what would have been shackles to me.
And I am eternally grateful it didn’t work out!
So, yes, I believe that “Things always happen for a reason.”
