Not everything bad is your fault.
I remember this line from Disney’s The Lion King, when Simba told Nala, “sometimes bad things happen, and there’s nothing you can do about it . . .”
And yes, most times, there is nothing you can do, so hakuna matata.
It’s easier said than done, right? We couldn’t help it, sometimes, when we feel that we are partly to be blamed, we can’t just hakuna matata everything.
Yeah, but we can hakuna matata some things, right? Not everything bad is your fault.
It’s a domino effect, you know, a chain of events. If something very bad happens, and that really snaps someone, it is more likely that there were other smaller events that lead to that big bad thing, so no, you can’t blame yourself for every bad thing that happens in your, or someone else’s, life.
On the other hand, good things have domino effects too. Think about that. I’ve read this story in Tumblr about this kid and his friend Kyle, and it tears me up again and again.
Good things set off a chain of events too, and instead of all the bad things, think of all the good things you have done that affected other people’s lives.
If you can’t, then maybe you never really thought about it.
That’s sad, isn’t it? When you can’t think of the good things, but the bad ones get to you.
Don’t let the bad things get to you. Don’t let them define you. You are more than that.
