What in Life Did You Think Was Bad, but Ended up for Your Own Good?

Not being able to kill myself.

Everything in life went wrong.  I was working at a dead end job.  I lost my lover.  I was betrayed.  I was sleeping on a sofa.  I had nothing.  I was completely defeated.  I didn’t want tomorrow to ever come again.  I thought that life just couldn’t get any better and I was going to end up being a failure for good.  I couldn’t even fathom my life getting better.

I was so certain that my life was hopeless that I bought life insurance.  My insurance policy to make sure my family would have the financial resources to move forward if I had decided to go again.  My two year suicide clause ended January this year.

Then it seems, I was completely wrong.  As now my life has turned completely around.
