    Default Why do bad things happen all at once?

    A family friend is dying of cancer. I have no job. The girl of my dreams just found out (I knew she'd reject me but had to tell her), and yet has just found the man of HER dreams and won't stop talking about him since I am her best friends - and can't seem to remember I don't want to know. Velvet Revolver wanted an album out in late 08 and it hasn't happened. The Van Halen tour never hit Europe. I need someone to force me awake in the morning since my total lack of a schedule since my holiday in Canada for just over 3 weeks means my body is refusing to get over jetlag. I've been home a month and I'm STILL going to bed at 6 am, getting up at 2 pm. If I try otherwise, it doesn't change things.

    And I'm fucking out of beer!

    Sorry to hear that life is coming at you all at once. Although different issues, I know the feeling as it seems everything is getting thrown at our family all at once. At least I have the crazy Links to turn to to take my mind off of things for a while.

    On the otherhand, I am not out of beer.....yet.

    God only gives you what you can handle nothing more, nothing less.

    Take all of these obstacles and and look at them as strength builders.

    Well OLO I agree

    my motherly advice - that I have had to take myself is:

    when it starts getting tough, everything is going wrong and you feel like you need to change something well - you probably do.

    Make a list, write down whats wrong and try to reorganize the things that you can control. Jet lag is a bitch, but you have to deal with that.

    The girl, well when two people are meant to be together they will. Has to be a 2 way street or it just will not work.

    Your friends cancer is beyond your control. But maybe write a card, tell them you are praying for them or thinking of them. You seriously have no idea how that small gesture can be the brightest point in someone's day. For that matter send a daily card or make a daily call, and keep it short. Take food to them if possible or a movie, magazine....

    The job, that too is up to you.

    Sometimes, "bad luck" is God's way of getting your attention, I've found if you pay attention your"luck" will change but you have to put for the effort. And I've also ignored that little whisper from God saying"uh girl, get with it" and at that point I got my proverbial ass kicked ...


    Hang in there... I hope things turn around for you. I also hope I don't sound like a busy little nosey nelly.

    Take care!

    I'm sorry you are feeling a bit overwhelmed, I'm not one of those "things always happen for a reason" people....I think things are more random than that...

    what I do believe is that when bad things happen you have to realize that some things are simply out of your control, but what IS in your control is how you handle things....how you choose to face things, the lessons you learn from the situations and the person you become because of the way your have faced the adversity that came your way.

    You can choose to be a stand up person, who is there for your friends and has their best interests at heart, or you can let adversity cow you and become a fearful and self pitying person.

    As one who hates the feeling of self pity...I get up off my ass and get done what needs to be done, and curiously, things always get better!

    I told my boy that my job in life was NOT to make sure that he never felt discomfort, or uncertainty or emotional distress...Nope, my job was to make sure that he knew how to handle the inevitable feelings of discomfort, uncertainly and emotional distress.

    I know things will get better for you, and in the meantime, think about what lessons you can come away from these experiences with...

    In other words, God tries to get attention of millions of South Asian/African AIDS-infected, orphaned, starving, stuck in the middle of civil war children, but he lets it slide for rich kids of Hulk Hogans and siblings of Britney Spears'.

    Right.

    It's God speaking thru me. Since he controls everything, inneh?

    What some people consider "bad luck", many other would take many times over and be grateful. No job? No VV/VH albums this year? Girlfriend/boyfriend trouble? Guess what OLO, in some places bad luck is considered having a bomb dropped on your home killing everyone close to you.

    Maybe you should have a good share of that bad luck before you credit anything to God. Get out of America and live in other places for awhile.
