Is life supposed to be fair? Do you feel complete and satisfied? Or you feel like life wasn’t fair with you? It is one of the biggest question marks in everybody’s mind. Life does not remain the same always. It changes, goes through hard roads, sometimes moves smoothly, stops sometimes, and gives you hope to start again. Some people feel like they are living an unfair life and compare themselves with others who are settled and living happily. Do you really think it is all because of the life you have blessed with? Let’s face it.
Life is Competition
Have you realized that the business you work for? Someone else is killing the job position you always strived to achieve? Nobel Prize that you want? Profits that you expect? We all are living in competition, although we do not realize it. We are in a hustle to beat the others and get his/her position. What we really want is a constant stream of income. All the feelings and emotions have vanished.
Our Idea of Fairness is Self Interest
You studied hard but failed the exam. You gave an outstanding performance but dropped out. You worked hard but didn’t get promoted. You love her, but she does not respond to your texts.
Wait! Look at the topper and see how much hard work he put into the exam and compare yourself. The person who got promoted has years of experience and professional image, someone who is completely different from you. The girl you love, she might love someone else? Let her go with her choice.
Why Life Isn’t Fair?
Can you just imagine how insane life would be if it was “fair” with everybody out there? No one could compare with others and life would be meaningless! Everyone would live a fancy life and no worries, no sorrows, no happiness, nothing! Relationships would end if both partners died simultaneously. Companies would fail if all employees who worked for them were evil. Raindrops would fall on bad people.
Even imagining this makes me think of life boring. Facing reality and working hard is the only solution to get rid of bad feelings that might come in your mind. Stop thinking that someone or something is challenging your value. You must know your worth.
Be Just With Your Life
Life is a big blessing and it’s upon us how we perceive life. Life teaches us lessons and matures us with life experiences. Up’s and down’s are a part of life and you must face them with a big heart. A day will surely come when all our problems will be solved and we will be happy and satisfied with our life. Keep trying and keep going as it is the best rule of life. You must make up your mind for the worst and tackle the situation like a hero.
