#NOMORE Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People??! (Connie J)

Why do bad things happen to good people? If I knew the answer to this question, I would probably be rich!!! The why is really arbitrary...no amount of excuse or explanation can ever justify it; but the fact is, bad things DO happen to good people.

I want to ask you, do you KNOW you're "good people"? That this happening to you is NOT your fault? If this is new information for you, welcome to the beginning of your healing process...it will not necessarily be easy, but it will be worthwhile. You just have to have the patience and the will to stick it out.

What has happened to you was the result of someone else's choices. Even if you picked them to be your life-long partner, and were betrayed...the betrayal was THEIR choice.

If you were legally wed, words like love, honor and cherish were probably involved. If you were in a committed relationship, those words were inferred. Either way, I know for a fact, you NEVER agreed to be abused, betrayed, or treated like an animal.

That being said, I know that change will not happen overnight. You just have to keep trying, #thestruggleisreal.

Do you know someone who is struggling, either in an abusive relationship, or has recently escaped one? A great #NOMORE would be to see what you could do to help them, or at least point them in the right direction. If you contact the number on this website, you can be directed to counseling, shelter, and support.

Have a good day, and be safe... #NOMORE #KNOWMORE
