Why do bad things come to good people?

Hi there..i don`t know where to start...i`m scarred because i think that i`m falling in depression..sincerely I tell you that i haven`t done any bad to any people..when i wake up i just think at how can i help the world even if with small gestures and till now i made very many people happy..but i feel nobody tries to do the same thing for me..it seems that i attract only bad stuff..i have a small problem at my jaw but from small problem it became a big problem and i need a chirurgical intervention ...my parents got ill ..and things that happen make me say that i really don`t have any meaning in this life..i`m starting to hate it ..Sad .. Rolling Eyes ...

I have always thought the exact same thing. Guess we are to much of a giving person and get nothing in return. Perhaps that is why I dispise people so very much.

if you do things for others from the heart, and you dont expect nothing in return, you will get it back 10 fold.. if you keep thinking i do every thing for every one and no one does nothin for me.. it aint from the heart and you keep getting nothin

i've been battling depression for 1/2 my life and when your depressed your thoughts are negative.

i left my horrible ex of 5 years, i got my apartment, job, lost job, live in shelter, got apartment through program, they tried to kick me out b/c unstable job, started having health problems, still battling depression. i always felt like i left a monster and i should be living the life while he struggles.
but you have to change your way of thinking. i no longer feel that way. bad things happen to good and bad people.

keep that loving spirit you have, we need people like that in the world. no one has to thank you or even acknowledge what you do. God see's your heart, and he will bless you.

When we know we are doing good to others and doing no harm to them, we really feel hurt when we are given suffering in return, instead of something good!

The Karma Theory however tells us what we face in this life is the reward of our actions in our past lives (about which we of course know and remember nothing, in this life).

Karma is an important concept in Buddhism, Hinduism and other Eastern Religions (India, China, Japan, Korea and other parts of Asia).

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
No one is immune to terrible problems but tolerance varies among individuals.
Do regular exercise and yoga. Avoid loneliness.
Keep yourselves engage.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
