Question: Why We Need Bad Things to Happen to Us?
Answer: We need “bad things” to happen to us in order to awaken us and drive us to search for “good things”.
Pain, suffering is the strongest motivating factor for development as when we feel good, comfortable we do not move but want to stay in that state.
But we do not have to wait for the usual pain, suffering, physical trouble to push us out of our comfort zone. We can – in the right, mutually supportive, mutually complementing environment – generate a unique, forward pulling atmosphere, towards a highly valued, desired goal.
Then until we can’t reach that goal it is a “sweet pain”, “love sickness” that keeps us moving, never resting as we want to reach that collective goal so much that we simply can’t stay within comfort zone.
