Why Me? Is It Just Me? Well, It's a Matter of Perspective

Have you ever wondered why bad things always seem to happen to you? Oftenly we said, "Why do bad things always happen to me? Why not her or him? Why me?"


Well, first of all, let me set it straight, bad things happen to everyone. None of us can escape having bad experiences. We need to know why some of us experience bad things more often than others? One thing we must keep in mind is that many times what appear to be 'bad things' are simply a matter of perspective.

Everything in this world can be seen as you wish to. Depends on the way we look at things. Good or Bad. Simple or Complicated. Easy or Difficult. We act as the magnet and attract whatever we wish to be surrounded with. When we think positive, we draw positivity and when we think negative thoughts, negativity is what will come to us.

 

You know sometimes the answer depended on perspective. How you see things can and, often does, determine how you respond. How you respond is primarily based on what you believe. What you believe is based on where you put your faith.

This way of looking at facts could change our entire life. We should never regret the moment we chose and we should always search for the brightest side of things in every single moment of our life. That’s what a wider perspective gives you. Don’t think you know what’s best if you haven’t seen it all. It just might be something that you have missed.
Have anything good happen to you lately? Changing your perspective could change your entire life. Go on! Take a chance. Someone took a chance on you, didn't they?

It's so true, thinking positive is so important:)

Enep said...

Hey Popp! Yeah, VERY important :)

Cassey said...

I just couldn't agree more, everything starts from our brains and comes back at us. So having a positive mind is definitely a must

Enep said...

Wow, beautiful phrases Cass! I love it, hihi <3

Hannah said...

You put it perfectly!
My mom told my almost every morning when I was younger that "every day is a good day, just some are better than others", and growing up I have found that that piece of advice is wonderful to remember when having a bad day and when having those "why me?" moments.
Terrific post!

Thanks for the comment! I agree with you though, have to look at things in a good light...

Enep said...

*wink*

Dooder City said...

I totally agree. If you are positive you attract positivity. If you are negative, then negative stuff happens to us.

Enep said...

it's just right! :)

Sher said...

It can be true, about how you look at things. But sometimes some months are worse than others you gotta admit lol The past few weeks have literally been hell and it was one thing wrong after another! Even though I had wishful thinking bad news came. But i do believe things happen for a reason. :)
thanks for checking out my blog :D

Juliet said...

I do think that thinking positive is important. But lately I've been more of a class half empty -person. It is hard to believe in Karma or that good people get good things when shit just pours on you.

Last spring my little brother was in accident. Not my choice and can't really think anything positive out of it. Then I spend the whole last year in a school where I was teased, humiliated and looked down to. Again I did try to fight it, but one people against many is hard. And now, month ago very very close person to me died far before his time.

So I do think positive thinking is important, but I don't think i can change my life with it. I'm in a doubt that bad people never get what they deserve.

(I'm sorry if this got too dark and twisted.)

^Juliet:
I know when someone close to you died, it's hard. At times you may feel panicky. You have a feeling of shock, a yearning and a protest. All this is natural :)

Well, the truth is, the truth hurts. And if it hurts, it's probably worth it (think positive) :p

By the way, deepest sympathy in your loss, dear. May your memories comfort you. Just know that times will feel better just keep your chin up <3

Charmaine said...

so true what you said! bad things happen to everyone, it just sucks when it comes around :/

Silje said...

If you think positive almost everything will be okay!=)

cocorosa said...

fabulous post and very true!! I noticed that lately, for a few months I have never thought with things "its not fair" anymore, that changed a lot, I now see everything as an opportunity and I work very hard for it, yes I stay positive, staying possitive is very important :)

Gaia said...

yes, you're right: it's always point of view!!! Positive and bad things happen to everyone. It's just that you have to be prepared and always react to what arrive to yyou!
Thanks for stopping by to my blog!

Kym said...

can't wait to read more!

agnes said...

lovely thoughts and that is just so true.
This reminds me a bit of the law of attraction. Think positive and all good things will happen, vice versa.
but of course, this takes a lifelong lesson to make it right. Is it ?

agnes :)

「 Thy Lady 」 said...

michelle said...

nonsenseofthetruth said...

:(
Oh my gosh, you're just SO RIGHT!
"Its not how things are, its about how you look up to them. And how you look up to them is all up to you."
And I'm always looking sad to them :)

"Why do bad things always happen to me? Why not her or him? Why me?"
And I always think, why me? Haha :)

I really need to change that! I need to think positive! :)

Enep said...

Thank you everyone. I am really really pleased with these :)
