“Sometimes a disease is understood to be an energetic gift from the spirit realm, used to help an individual wake up and re-evaluate their current life situation.’ – Anonymous
Nothing is all bad because everything happens for a good reason.
For instance, when you are severely ill, you notice the people who care about you and discover the uselessness of material things. You realize that the most valuable thing is health and vitality. Thus, when you get better, you become thankful for your health and being alive.
When you are broke, you learn to embrace humility, and you realize that you can live with less. You discover who your real friends are, and you might become creative because the lack of money might force you to think outside the box. You also pinpoint the poor money habits that keep you broke and you try to embrace good financial habits.
When you lose your job, you have more time to sleep and rest. You can wake up late and not worry about someplace you have to report to. You find more time to read and develop your spiritual self. You also know who your real friends are, and you realize the importance of money. You then become thankful when you find a new job or a reliable source of income.
When you break up with someone you love, you learn to love yourself. You notice that you don’t need a romantic relationship to be happy. You stop worrying about the other person’s whereabouts, what they are doing, and whether they love you. You also find the time and freedom to pursue your dreams as you only have to plan your schedule around you.
When you gain too much weight, you realize the importance of exercising and eating in moderation. You might also avoid processed foods and start eating healthy.
When you get addicted to drugs, you stop judging drug addicts because you discover why they are addicted to drugs despite knowing the side effects of drug addiction.
When someone you love dies, you learn the side effects of emotional attachment. You then become conscious of the fact that you are a mortal being who will die one day.
When you die, you’ll stop worrying about sickness, money, and relationships. Your bodily desires will vanish, and you will never have to work again. All your earthly problems will disappear because you’ll leave planet Earth and your physical body.
For these reasons, everything happens for a good reason. Nothing is all bad. When facing any difficulty, try to discover what the hardship wants you to know, avoid, or change.
“At every single moment, no matter how much you are being tried, Allah at the same time has given you many eases.” – Yasmin Mogahed
Peace be with you.
