Everyone has his or her own strong beliefs. My strongest belief is everything happens for a reason. I have three manger reasons

explaining why this is my belief. They are Robert and I, my best friend

Paige, and my friend Melissa.

My first major reason is because Robert and I were together

for one year and two months. I thought he was the best guy in the world

and that I would be with him forever. I was wrong about that, everything

changed so fast. I was at work one day and I started to like this guy

named Jeff. Therefore, I broke it off with Robert because I did not want

to lead him on any longer. That was the hardest day on my life and the

saddest day because I hurt the person that I loved for a year. However,

everything happens for a reason right? Also, I still cant get over that

we broke up but everyday gets a little easier. Its hard to still talk to

him as friends, since we dated longer than a year. That’s one reason why

I think everything happens for a reason.

My second major reason is my best friend Paige because her aunt

Leslie was told that she was never be able to have kids. She went to the

doctor and had eggs planted in her for years. For those years nothing

never happened, she never got pregnant. She stopped trying for the

longest time. Then when she turned forty years old, she found out she

was pregnant. That was the happiest day or her life for her and her

husband. Now she has a healthy baby boy named Carter. I think this

happened because everyone wanted her to have a kids cause she was so

great with kids. She would be the best mom in the world. So that’s my

second reason why I think everything happens for a reason.

My third major reason is my friend Melissa because she has been

though so much in her life. From her teenage years to her adult years.

Her and Adam weren’t getting along very well anymore. She thought she

couldn’t have kids either. The doctor said and she has had two

miscarriages. So, she thought see would never have kids. When she found

out that she was pregnant she was very happy and also thought how did

this happen. She wants a boy, so I hope she gets one. I feel that if

they didn’t have a baby that they wouldn’t be together, but they make a

cut couple. Also, Adam and Melissa had a low chance of having kids.

that’s a miracle that there having one, so I think that a blessing their

having one. That is my third manger reason why I think everything

happens for a reason.

Those are my strongest beliefs Robert and I, Paige, and Melissa.

I don’t think I could get though my day without this belief. Everyone’s

beliefs are different, so what’s yours?
