    Exclamation occur

    Can someone help me to correct my sentence, please?


    You take serious when something occurs on you.



    Should i add "s" or not?


    Thank You

    Re: occur

    You should take it seriously when something happens to you.

    PS occurs would work if you meant 'when you have an idea'
