The Horrible Thing That Happens

If you’re lucky, the horrible thing that happens gives you some distance from the world and it lets you to look at it in a way no one else does.

 If you’re lucky, the horrible thing that happens makes you move closer to everyone around you because you understand how bad the horrible thing can be, and you know there's a chance someone else might have felt something as horrible as you have.

So you are not careless with others.

You try and make sure the horrible thing don’t happen to them. 

Because you’re the lucky one.
