Why is this Happening to Me?

I think I did wonder. No—I know I did. I’m a good person. I’ve done everything right. Why is this happening to me?

Then, in a book, I read what the Buddha taught: suffering and loss are as much a part of living as breathing itself.

Why have I thought, what is a part of life, shouldn’t happen to me? It’s nonsense—and I’m happy to be relieved of that expectation.
