This is not true. Everyone has his fair share of sufferings whether you are a good person or a bad person per se.

Good people suffer a lot because it is God's way of waking them up from a deep slumber. They have to feel the pain and struggle through life to look inside themselves and find their authenticity and find the god within.

I think what you've said is true. Very well said.

It's a test of their faith that's why good people get tested.

Good people suffer because God knows they can handle it. They won't be given that if they can't handle it.

We all have our own demons. Some people just choose to keep it private.

We all suffer. We all have troubles but people don't know about it so they think it's just good people who suffer.

Good people suffer the most because they're quiet and will bear everything. People notice that. They don't complain.

I think it's unfair that good people get singled out. Everyone has their own sufferings, not just good people.

Good people get singled out because people expect them to be rewarded for being good. They don't need to suffer, only the bad ones.

Maybe because they're the ones who can withstand everything? They're patient and determined to overcome everything.

Good people tend to get tested more. It's like trying to push their buttons and seeing if they're really good.

The story of Job in the bible was all about good people suffering. I guess we all get tested and our faith will help us get through it all.

The bad people don't care about expectations and they do whatever they want that's why they live the good life. Good people always do the right thing.

I guess because the good people take everything in while the bad people escape their problems that's why they have a better life.

Good people know that whatever suffering they have will pass. I guess they're being tested as to how strong they really are.

If this ultimate question were answered, then we would be able to make peace with the suffering of innocents. And that is unthinkable. Worse than innocent people suffering is others watching their suffering unmoved. And that's exactly what would happen if we were to understand why innocents suffer.

Every person is made of the situations he has faced, the experiences which he has gained and the perspectives he carries.

Because life isn't fair. Good people believe that if they do good, good things should happen to them in return. But this simply is a flawed assumption.
