Can't bad things just happen? Or, do bad things happen for a reason?


Some people act like it is one's own fault that one gets cancer (e.g., not eating right) or getting robbed (one acted like a victim) or even for suffering a natural disaster (for putting out a negative vibe). What do you think and could you write a hub about it?

    I think people want to think that through their own actions they can avoid cancer; however, cancer and other bad things can happen to a person through no fault of their own. Thanks for stopping by.

    I would say that life is a lot more random than people think.

    Supposing the doctor says he's got terminal cancer and you said "Everything happens for a reason". He turns around and asks, "What reason?"

    I like your answer about the fork in the road. It seems very apt to me.

    I wouldn't compare a Yin & Yang balance for the cosmos with, uh, silly economics! Mankind is anything but balanced, to say the least! Meanwhile, nature works in unison with the harmony that was originally provided... :rolls eyes:
