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.
My business is to teach my aspirations to conform themselves to fact, not to try and make facts harmonise with my aspirations. T.H. Huxley

Are you a former fundy?
