are all things fair in life?

Reality hurts sometimes. Life can be so mean and rewarding at times. On situations that we fail to realize how we could do more and strive hard to understand certain phenomena, it is frustrating that we end up loosing one's confidence to give it a "try" again. On the other hand, it could be rewarding when fortunes come along the way and we see the desirable results happen while giving our best in every thing we do may it be on work or personal matters. It is a balanced thought that we as humans think much of the greatness and possibilities we could have achieving a positive result always. But still, this is not the real score. Always, we learn from mistakes and uncertainties before we get something worthwhile.

We are faced with a lot of different challenges in life. they can not all be fair and to our liking. we are going to have times when we think that life has treated us unjustly and unfairly. Life can not aw=ways be the bed of roses that we pain the world with.

Its all in our perceptions. Life maybe hard sometimes, but it all boils down on how we perceive it. We can always choose the better way of doing things. We can choose to be happy in times of sadness. We can choose to ignore annoying people so that it will not affect our mood. Its always a matter of choice. Lets choose to be positive all the times.

Life is full of disappointments. I tell you that. Okay.. exaggerated much. t's not FULL of disappointments but FILLED with disappointments. There are ups and downs, but I really think that there are more downs. Because of how I currently see things, I must say there's nothing fair in this world. Truthfully speaking...

hello, I will repeat that like is not fair. We struggle and suffer, we learned and we survive. Thats life. Sometimes we face some situations that we think we are giving up but does we think that this is only the way we can learned. This make us think and realize that why do we experiencing those things and those hard times even we do our best. Meaning we must be strong to survive and not to give up on the situations we face.

We benefit from the good things that come our way, but there is benefit too in the failures that we encounter. That is when we look at these failures as learning experiences, and we can use this knowledge in our future endeavours.

No, not everything in life is fair somethings good things happen to the bad people and the bad things happen to the good people or less fortunate. There's no logical explanation as to why life works out for some people and why life falls apart for others.

Life is not fair because it's remind us to strive more and never be contented what we have, to give our very best to be successful for every profession we choose.

well, life is definitely not fair because sometimes people who have been far out of success than we did get success and we are the ones in the failing side, but it's the wheel of life...nothing stays the same anyway, even though there are failures in our lives, we must focus on tomorrow's success... nothing is worthwhile if we didn't work and strive for it...

Hi meissen, Nothing is one dimensional, I mean along with other things our life too is an admixture of will and woes. Specially the negatives that we often rant are our own crated rather than naturally hooked. And the reality is all things are not fair in life. Now since you know or realized all things are not fair, it should not mean that we give it up. Constant fight against the odds in life brings happiness and contentment. This is why the prolific writer Earnest Hemingway said "A man may be defeated but not destroyed..."

No, they are not. We have lessons to learn from. The reality that hurts us also help us in molding our character. It builds who we are or what we want to be. Through our experience in our life, we discover our talents, abilities and strength. We also realize when and where are we weak. This can be emotional or physical. In life, everything happens with a reason. Let's just be cautious and observative. As we learn let us not forget the lessons we learn and try not to commit the same mistakes others have done. We have a choice so think a million times before you do something. Its difficult to choose. Just be intelligent enough. As long as you don't hurt people and you're not so selfish go for it. Life is good and we must enjoy it every day!
