There are some people who somehow always seem able to look on the bright side of things, no matter what is going on in their life.
Then are other people who seem to delight in looking at all the things that are wrong in the world and all the things that could go wrong for them. And you may have noticed how things invariably go wrong for them!

Yes, things can go wrong and stuff can happen – even if you are a “good” person. It’s all just simply part and parcel of the tapestry of life.
It’s how you deal with whatever life throws at you is what matters – and it’s what will ultimately help you grow as a person.
