Everything Happens for a Reason Quotes

If you weren’t convinced, you will be after reading these everything happens for a reason quotes.

We’ve all heard this saying at least a million times before, but have you ever stopped for a moment to think about the meaning behind it.

If you aren’t the type to believe that everything happens for a reason, you will likely reconsider after reading this.

This is a concept that I tell my patients most often. It is something that is hard to grasp or believe in the midst of it, but it could not be more true.

Think of the phrase, “People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.”

It is the idea that no matter how good, or how painful a role they played, they taught us something, something that will reveal itself to us at some point.

This goes hand in hand with the concept of everything happening for a reason.

While there may be unpleasant lessons that happen, they are still lessons. We have to be open to the pain and difficulty, to be truly open to what it is we are supposed to gain from an experience.

It can be difficult to think in terms of everything happening for a reason, but it can also be helpful.

When we are going through a difficult time, it can be very comforting to think that there is a purpose to this, and there will be a use for what I am going through at this very moment.

Here is some sage advice about just this point:

    Tell me the reason for spina bifida, the plague, female genital mutilation, mass starvation, the Holocaust. “Everything happens for a reason” is right up there with “God never gives us more than we can handle.” You have to have lived a pretty charmed, sheltered life to believe this stuff. Also you have to be blind to the suffering of others.
