We Can’t Always Understand Why Something Happens

Sometimes we will sit and try to work out why something has happened the way it has. We will sit and mull over and over and over trying to work out what went wrong, what we did, what we said, what we didn’t say, what we didn’t do. But at times there is nothing that can change that path. There is no way to understand why some things happen. They just do. I know this is easier said than done, but at times we just have to accept it. We just have to pick ourselves up, brush ourselves down and get on with life. Not everything in life will make sense. Not everything will go our way. Just live your life the best you can.

Have a great weekend.

  1. It’s true that not everything in life will make sense and I agree that how insanely we wanna know why, what and how, we just have to accept it.

  3. My favorite was “Every flower must grow through dirt”. Does that say it all or what?! I don’t question why something happened, only what can I learn and where is the gift. There always is. We may not see it today or this year, but one day the reason will show itself. Who am I to question genius?

  4. We usually don’t understand right away why something happened, but from the distance of many years any important turn in one’s life becomes very understandable and very explainable. We simply find out what was that triggered one thing or another or why we were blind and didn’t notice anything.
    We are involved in lots of cross-connections with plenty events, matters, things and happenings. Even when one sits at home in his or her room, different things can happen. I think the question should be not “why?”, but rather “how did I get to this, into this or how am I related to things what are happening at this moment? ” Everything is a result and consequence of million other things that happened a year ago, a week ago, one hour ago or we are the cause of this happening straight at this moment. You could have left earlier, but you didn’t …
    You could have taken a taxi, but you didn’t
    You could have done everything slightly differently and avoided this particular situation, so on.
    It could be absolutely other person instead of you, but we can be sometimes in the wrong place at the wrong time, or the opposite: everything has led to the best possible outcome, you just were in the right place at the right time. There’s definitely no need to try understanding every smallest thing that happened, but these things definitely occur as effect of some interaction, counteraction or reaction, or lack of any action.

    • Thank you for your wonderful reply. I have often sat down and thought to myself “because that happened – this happened, and because this happened – those happened. I look at my divorce and whilst it was the worst part of my life at that time, so many things changed as a result of it, one of which was to become closer to my kids. I made new friends out of it, and lost others.

      Cause and effect. Destiny. Everything happens for a reason, and we have survived everything that has come our way.

  5. I felt like you were speaking to me. I think we as humans want to know all the answers. I am guilty of trying to figure out why. In the end when we look back we understand why things happened as they did. Our lives are a path of stories all glued together by feelings
