Am I The Only One?

April 9th 2003 / 1 minute to read

Why do I, why do people, remember all of the bad things, and can count on one hand the good things, in life? Why can’t we accept the bad and slather ourselves in the good?

No, you are not the only.  I have no idea.  I have been wondering basically the same thing. 

I also don’t understand how the same bad things keep coming back to haunt me, no matter how hard I try to distance myself from them.  I don’t understand it at all.


I believe it’s because bad things have a more profound impact but I also believe to focus on this is a choice.

I know, as is typical for these things, it is easier said than done to change ones focus but I believe my Pagan faith, for others whatever their faith is, is what has kept my focus leaning toward the better things. (Notice I said leaning, we are all human).

As to why they keep coming back, I believe one of two things cause bad things to happen repeatedly a)they have not been delt with and the lesson has not yet been learned b)lack of forgiveness. 

Then again there’s always that third possibility (as all things come in three’s right?); SHIT HAPPENS! LMAO!
