Irony is one of life's greatest mystery. I could relate it to that song that Alanis Morisette sung.
It's really very ironic how things happen in our life. At one point you be challenged with things that you never expected to happen and just as the song goes "isn't that ironic", but then again even if life is so ironic we should continue living and keep fighting.
I believe that even if life tends to be ironic, these things are not coincidental and these things were bound to happen. So keep a strong faith and keep believing that something good is about to happen. It may sound cliche but its for the better.
