Everything Happens For A Reason

Everything Happens For A Reason November 30, 2014


I saw this in a collection of “unmotivational” posters, and thought it was worth commenting on. While I personally will not punch anyone in the face, and wish to discourage others from doing so, I think this shows the problem with the trite statement that “it was/wasn’t meant to be.” It ignores the complexities of life and the reality that sometimes something clearly happened, or was prevented from happening, by the kind or unkind action of one or more other human beings. Or to put it another way, if you say “everything happens for a reason,” the reason someone punches you may be the fact that you offered the trite comment that “everything happens for a reason,” and not something deeper than that.
