because "who deserves what" is a subjective perception based on a person's belief system.
Because people who believe they don't deserve it are always worried about the outcome. Bad things happen to everyone. However, the ones who do deserve it, don't really give a crap. Therefore, they don't even acknowledge them.
struggles and hardships are part of life. oftentimes, it happens, to keep a person stronger in life
Good question, but not one that you should harp on. Just try to learn the lesson behind the bad situation, and you'll come out stronger in the end.
Bad things happen to people as a test to bring out the best in them. It is way for you to learn how well you can cope in the face of adversity. Life's way of training you to become a better person by learning from those bad situations.
In my opinion, "Bad People" has "bad things" too. May "good" people are to much worrying about it? Or may there is law of attraction operating? I do not know.
Sometimes it is because they are in the wrong place at the wrong time or it could be they do not have the strength to be their own person to say no when needed or separate themselves even from friends and family that are not going in the right direction. Some things such as children born damaged when born because of what the mother did while pregnant or spouses picking up diseases from cheating mates...it just happens and there should be a law or punishment for it and it would not happen as often I am sure. I guess we could talk this one all day...there are lots of whys and there are some who knows why.
As God stated, "I am the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End."
This statement describes that God is in all things and God is everything.
God gives not only joy and pleasure, but also gives us pain and suffering, but he does not give such things needlessly and there is a reason for the suffering he has given.
One of the things I think of when I am in pain is, "What is God trying to tell/teach me?"
I understand this is a more spiritual term of answer rather than secular, but I'm not sure what term of answer you desire. So I'm giving you my personal view on it. Thank you for reading.
I think the simplest answer to that is because 'that's life'. It would be fitting perhaps that only bad things should only happen to bad people, but that's just not the way things work. I also don't believe that any creator is pointing a finger down an picking on people to hurt - life is life and sometimes there is no reasoning to it or any answers, and yes, it can suck at times!
Seems to be related to Karma & Merits.
It is the cycle of life. Sometimes it maybe things that the person had done and now it is happening on him/her. You may have heard of people saying it's never rewarding to do good but that's untrue as based on Karma & Merits, it will come as a reward to the person who had done good in different form.
So, do good things and you will deserve good happening.
For the same reason that good things happen to people that don't deserve it.
The natural human tendency when something goes wrong is to react with the rhetoric, 'why does it always happen to me?' To come out of such depression, one must develop a positive attitude toward life and keep moving ahead. I know it is a lot easier to preach than to practice, but still, why not give it a try? We must never despair and keep on hoping for sunshine in our life, and one day things will brighten up!
nothing is bad or nothing is undesearving.....its depend on us how we take it....if we think that thing also have some good thing in that then we never think that i am undesearving for this situation...we should always become ready for every challenges because life have positive and negative both things...
Maybe he deserve to be stronger, wiser.etc.
Mostly, these bad things is the road of superiority.
Who climbs Everest, will not get it easily.
Being superior is like climbing Everest.
Who worth to be superior will face bad things.
Everyone on this earth are facing difficulties, and no one is exceptional. It is a truth where human are suffer from their weaknesses. Wealthiest people suffer from emptiness soul and the poverty suffer from materials.No matter less or more, people still suffer, and as long they are living they continue to survive. Bad things are happen whether to the good and bad people.Human are facing difficulties all the times, just that sometimes they feel ease with love, relationships and materials but there are the moments they will have emotionally pain, inner suffering that also called as the 'bad things'; bad things are sometimes their inner turbulent and sensitivity.
On the contrary, I believe that bad things (as well as good) happen to people only if they deserve it. People just may not realize it.
Probably because Life is Not Fair !
Good thing... Bad things happen to all people, sometimes it may appear there is no balance and perhaps there isn't. That's life too, we just have to deal with.
"Bad" things happen to everyone in this world. This world is imperfect and even down right evil at times. Take a look at the first 10 minutes of any news program.
Like someone already said, bad things happen to everyone, and I believe a follow up question is, "What do you do when it happens?"
I have seen that those who have a strong faith in God, seem to handle their "bad" things a little better. They struggle, they question, they hurt, they resent, etc. But over time, they also are able to become a little more at peace sooner, because they believe in God's better plan for them in the end.
Unfortunately, pain and suffering are a big part of this world, but understanding the story of man's fall and more importantly, knowing God's plan for salvation, is the great equalizer that provides rest and assurance to believers.

Every thing in your life happens for a reason whether its good or bad....
Cliche? I think i would've preferred it more sometimes if i knew it simply was, yet i've been continually proven wrong when the bigger picture in my life unfolded and allowed for me to see the need for the bad to exist just as much as the good.
Whether its from a corny saying like "i wouldn't have known love like yours existed and how much it meant if i didnt break the pattern of hurt and pain i endured in my last relationship to get here" or so many others that apply to more than just relationships.
Bad things dont happen to undeserving people. Life just has a really sick sense of humour when it comes to opening your eyes to things you have yet to learn. Unfortunately sometimes it takes some really dire lessons in life to make us fully understand the weight some of our blessings we easily and casually overlook.
To make them stronger. So they can deal with what comes their way in the future.
Bad things happened for a reason,all we need is a positive outlook in life despite of bad things that happened.We can't get everything in life and sometimes we get the opposite one but we should look on the other side that there will be good things to come, its just a matter of perception in life,patience for coping the bad things and patience to wait for the good things.
I use to wonder about this all the time. I use to think why do bad things happen to good people. Then I learned about Karma. The soul goes from one body to another body, but that does not mean that their past action have benn forgotten. The universe/God has the soul embodied so that they could experience the results from previous karma or activities. So that "Good Person" that something bad has happend to may have been a wretch in their last life.
I also see it this way, if a person is really "Good" they will overcome what ever challenge that they face and continue to be a godd person and work on becoming a better person.

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...

I've found in my personal life that when I get my house blessed bad things seem to happen that makes things almost unbearable. It's a common motif on programs on hauntings. Why?

Why do bad things happen to good people?The age old question, if people are good why do bad things happen to them? Is it fair? Do they deserve it? What do you think the reason is?
