Default Re: Funny Ways to Comfort Myself

Here's another concept I came across in philosophy.

The idea is this: For all I know, any "terrible thing" ("painful thing", "undesirable thing") that happened to me was the best thing that could have happened. Why? There is the possibility that it caused me/will cause me to change in ways that result in my becoming a better person.
