Blessings in disguise. Is it really true? I used to shrug it off, thinking when undesirable things happen, there’s no such good thing about it. It’s just the way it is and the reason why it occurred can be traced to one’s actions.
However, I’ve observed recently that blessings sometimes come in disguise as misfortunes. At first impression, you really don’t like it, questioning God or fate why it happened. But as time goes by, you realize it happens in order to serve a higher purpose which is to enlighten. If it didn’t happen, it would be very hard for one to learn a lesson and it would take a very long time before learning can be absorbed and applied.
When someone gets sick, for example, the best thing you can do is to reframe the situation. Try to look at it in a different angle. Don’t complain. Don’t find something or someone to blame because if you do, you would just be upset which could lead to depression until you can’t move on. You could get stuck, getting mad at yourself, others and even at God.
When I said reframe, it means seeing the situation from a different viewpoint wherein the supposed misfortune is actually a blessing because it galvanizes the person to evolve into a better human being.
