This phrase “everything happens for a reason” was excellently described by the Greek Philosopher Aristotle in his way to find out the true meaning of life. Aristotle believed that everything that is happening to a human is for a reason and it will help him to become a better person in future.
Being a human being whenever something bad happens to us, we become depressed and sad because it is human nature. Whenever he faces any struggle and difficulty in his life he becomes hopeless. But we forget that our religion teaches us to face every loss with patience. We are human beings and of has given us that power to drive different meanings from the events and the situations we are going through.
stop depending on others
People we meet on a daily basis also have some purpose in our life. We don’t have any idea what is the purpose of someone in our lives. Some people become an important part of our life to teach us what companionship and true friendship is.
On the other hand, there are some people in our lives who leave us. At first we get disturbed because of their absence, but with time we get used to it. They teach us a lesson that no one in this world needs other people to be alive or be happy. We can do good without others and we are unable to understand this fact until we stop depending on others. Everything that is happening to you today is preparing you for your future. So, never take these incidents for granted and try to learn the most from them.
“There will always be a reason why you meet people. Either you need them to change your life or you’re the one that will change theirs.” -Angel Flonis Harefa
