Bad things happen

And I don’t need to make sense of them in order to be okay

It’s not that everything happens for a reason.

It’s that when bad things happen,
we’ll have the wisdom and well-being we need,
always, forever, and no matter what.

That’s the comfort.

Not that things work out for the best,
but rather,
when they don’t,
we can handle it.
