Making sense of tragedy
Tragedy can strike anyone at any time. A death in the family, a serious accident, financial or personal disasters, may cause us to ask the question "Why me" or make us wonder why this could have happened to someone else, like a criminal or really bad person. We feel that perhaps we got the short end of the stick or were singled out in some way even though we may have been doing all the right things'
Are we asking the wrong question? Perhaps instead we should ask, "why not me?". Instead of wondering "How could you let this happen to me" you can wonder, "how can I prevent this from happening again" Contemplate about the lessons you are learning from the experience and how this tragedy can make life better for you and others around you
It is not true that bad things only happen to bad people and good people have all the luck. It happens to all of us. While we may bring certain things on ourselves with the choices we make, we need to concentrate on becoming more aware of the hand we have been dealt, find ways to cope and move forward.
