"But...that's not fair!"

I hear it all the time. My kids, my co-workers, my husband. The only person I don't hear it from is myself. Why? Because I am bitter and jaded. Life isn't fair, deal with it.

Life is a bed of roses, complete with thorns. Life is just a bowl of cherries, with the pits. Life does give you lemons, and sometime there's no freakin sugar to be had ANYWHERE to make lemonade.

Sometimes, you have to give in, crawl in your bed of roses, find the spot with the least amount of thorns, eat the cherries, spit out the pits and drink in the bitter, sour life that has been given to you.

When you're done, have some Oreo's....you'll feel better.

Actually somehow life is fair but it's not always easy to see why that is. This is beacuse there is not often a good obvious correlation between the causes and effects of things.

Some of the cuases of quite a few of the undesirable effects we experience simply can't be known in terms of everyday logic and deduction.

But I also think that knowing the answers to these unknowns would oftentimes not really help us much either.

The main thing to have is the faith that you've got what it takes to carry on and to make some decently positive changes in your world by first picturing what it is you really want and then making diligent and honest efforts to do what's needed to get you there. It's also OK to ask for/seek help in getting there too.

Hopefully this generalized stuff has decent enough applications to your own dilemmas.

when i was a kid, it was one of the main things i used to say. my mother used to come back with that line: "life's not fair!" ... i always used to think: "well that doesn't mean it's ok for you to contribute to the unfairness and not tackle it!" and as a political activist trying to deal with the unfairness of life, i still feel much the same way ... i am not just going to accept injustice without a fight...!!
