I don’t believe everything happens for a reason. I don’t believe in fate. I don’t believe that everything that happens to us serves the purpose of teaching us a lesson. Sometimes bad things just happen - learning to accept that and cope in healthy ways is what is important. At the end of the day, you are the one who chooses how to live your life, and you are the one that chooses to move on. You cannot choose to be happy. But you can choose to do things that lead you to happiness.
