I believe that everything happens for a reason. No matter how insignificant or small, bad or good, great or terrible. Whether it is a bad grade on a test, or getting in trouble with your parents, in the end it changes you for the better and you learn from it. You can say that about anything. If it’s a death or if it is birth, it makes you appreciate life. If it is sickness or if it is wellness it makes you appreciate being healthy.
Everything happens for a reason because if nothing happened, we wouldn’t learn from our mistakes. You should never get to down on yourself, or be too hard on yourself for making a mistake; because in the end it helps you learn and grow to be better person. I believe that is the most important thing of all.
