Ria's riddle

Ria has put up a riddle. I will answer it here :)

She asks what I think of these words by Marilyn Monroe, whether I agree or not.
Here are the words:

"I believe that everything happens for a reason."
Well...things happen. We can either learn a lesson from them or not. Whether there is a reason, I don't know. Whether there is a lesson, yes, always!

"People change so that you can learn to let go."
You don't have to let go. You need to accept that people change, and accept them for who they are. Understand the change and go with the flow. Because change is the only thing that is constant!

"Things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right."
This one I agree with :)

"You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself"
I do not like this other extreme of not trusting anyone. I would say you believe lies and get cheated so that you can learn to believe your own instincts. Learn to trust yourself ALSO, not just others, or not just yourself.

"And sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."

Hmmm...maybe. I agree to it somewhat.

Thanks Ria :) I liked putting this one together :)
