I fell apart at the seams. I lost all sense of direction. I felt like someone needed to put me in a box with the label: This Side Up.

“Why did this happen to me?” is synonymous to “What did I do to deserve this?”

Sometimes we go toward the things that we think we want and where we want to be, only to get disappointed when we get there. We did all the right things and we feel, rightfully so, that we did not deserve whatever it is that went “wrong” in our life.

We can run away from it, use alcohol, drugs or other pain-numbing methods but it’s not going away until we stand face-to-face with it and stare it right in the eyes. Then we will see eventually that it is not an enemy but a friend — a teacher.
