Does it really????

I rewrote this entry so many times that I have lost count. I thought about sharing a funny story, but then couldn't tell it in a way that translated as funny. Then I was going to write about all of the silly phrases people use to make use feel better like everything happens for a reason; what comes around goes around; if you love something, let it go. If it comes back to you, its yours forever. If it doesn’t, then it was never meant to be; patience and hard work are all it takes to succeed. I rarely find comfort when somebody tells me one of these phrases maybe because it's not usually at the best time to hear something that gives me no control over my own life. But then I realize that I need to work on having a little more faith. But as that relates to this post...not so exciting! So what do I have to share right now that would make it worth your time to ready? Hmmm...maybe tomorrow.

I hate it when people say "everything happens for a reason". Someone told me that when one of my friends died of leukemia at age 30. I wanted to punch that person in the mouth.

I'm not sure I understand the hurry to find meaning in sorrowful situations anyway. We never seem to worry about finding meaning in our happiness. I wish more people would just say "a terrible thing has happened" and then allow themselves to grieve, be angry or just bummed out for awhile.

Words of encouragement are seldom encouraging to me. And then I feel bad because that person was only trying to help.

Rambling again! This was a very thought provoking post for me I guess.
