I am not religious in the slightest. I do admire those who are, faith fascinates me, but it isn't for me. What I do believe in is balance. The essence of balance is that by the end of your life things should be balancing out. That means that if two bad things happen to you, then somewhere along the line two good things should happen to you. The same follows that if you do something bad to someone, something bad will happen to you. It is actually quite Buddhist when I think about it. Not a big fan of the Buddhist thing however, but this balance thing seems to work for me. Basically if you are wondering "why does this bad stuff always happen to me?", maybe all the good stuff is just round the corner. A reason to stay alive and keep on going at the very least I would say!
