It is the bad things and hard times that shape us and make us stronger. A person is good because they have seen the bad and continue to smile.

If you believe in reincarnation then their belief is that we set these obstacles before we are born in order to overcome them and have a larger understanding of what life is, can be, as well as help our souls to become closer to enlightenment

@Thomas not reincarnation but I am christian and I believe that God puts challenges in front of us so that we may grow.

I think our struggles are what defines us. A piece of iron gets stronger by heating and beating it. We get stronger and wiser ass we prevail and grow!

@Belle thank you for your kind words. I think that if we do not take care of our struggles, they will take us out. We can actively unscrew life by just kindly helping others 😉

Because good people tend to help bad people and get used. Bad people take any advantage they can and good people are easy for them to take opportunity from. But believe me karma dose go around. Bad people usually associate with more bad people and really bad things tend to happen to them down the line

I'm not religious at all but there was this one tik tok I saw that mentioned that you should know you are doing things right when there are bad things happening to you. Basically saying the devil is after the good people. Which I guess would make sense.

Totally true. Scripture says 'the whole world lies in the power of the wicked one'. Not just that group over there..... It those guys you don't like.... ALL OF US HAVE BEEN TRICKED! Kindness to others is a great place to start unscrewing this mess! Much love

I see so many religious responses. Yes I am religious too, but I also consider myself rather practical. Bad things happen to literally everyone. The big difference, I think, is that bad people do bad things, bad things happen. They anticipate it, they plan for it, they roll with it. When bad things happen to "good people" they are the ones dumbfounded and surprised, as though they shouldn't have had to deal with this "because they are good". This is a fallacy. Bad things happen to everyone. When it is your turn, are you going to step up or be defeated?

@Kristina Fair reply. Bad person versus good person. One might say bad is performing or acting wrong, while good is performing or acting right. Then there might be that gut feeling, the spirit, or self giving you that feeling if you know you are doing right or wrong. A moral guide perhaps. But this differs person to person, something wrong to someone maybe right to another and vice versa. Then we have laws set in place, the human laws and divine laws that tell us what is wrong and right. Based on what a person is convinced of or believes in. If a person practices one of these ways we can't necessarily say that he or she is good or bad. Good or bad just like being feminine and masculine is a constant choice we have to make daily. I don't think goodness and badness is always constant. To say one person is solely good versus being bad seems overly judgemental and maybe self-righteous. How can a human judge another human? What merit do they have? Bad things happening to a good person. We may see the good person in public, but what about the other side when they are alone? What about a person's own wrong in the past? Can we really say there is a such thing as a good person? Surely there is no such thing has being a good person for an entire lifetime. Maybe the same for being bad or wrong an entire lifetime.

Because our entire existence is a random event. This planet, in perfect conditions for life as we know it, was all by chance. When you look at it through that perspective, the randomness of bad things happening to good people becomes a bit more understandable.
