Life has been questioned a lot by men and asked for reason why things are one way or the other but as expected, no definite voice is heard. Is life fair? Is it really a just rewarder? Injustice can be allowed for long without any fight back from life. Oppression of poor and the feeble. Manipulation by the enlightened. Despair by the those suppressed and cry out and there seems as if there voice in vacuum. Rich are seen as evil and the cause of in balance in the world. The poor are seen are the shallow thinkers who are slothful to contribute their part to life. What can be said of this mystery which every mortal never its of knowledge. But come and instinctively starts doing life's demand.

From my personal opinion, life never been fair to me, and maybe some of you. I don't get the girl I like, I don't make the money other people make. But after I think about it, maybe I didn't work hard enough, or maybe I didn't do enough to achieve what I really want for my life. Maybe it is my fault. Although life is unfair, unless we can try to get what we want through effort.

Kingparker, if you say life is not fair, I want to ask, there are your mates who wish to be where you are and not privilege. There is a saying that life do not give us what we want but what we deserve. In as much as we do get some of ours desires met, I will still credit life to good to all men in all ages, races, regions and groups. Don't you think so. We should not engage in pity-party as to blame ourselves as sometimes what we might want would turn to be our un-doing.

It really does depend on how the chips are going to fall for you throughout your life. There are times where I am standing there and life seems oddly fair enough to me. Everything is rather falling in line rather well so when you look at life that way, it does seem fair, all too fair as a matter of fact. But there are times where life does seem unfair. And really, when you think of life in the terms where nothing goes ideally as he should, then you may consider life is unfair. Because there is no such thing as an idea life. There are just going to be times where there are going to be any number of things that occur that are quite frankly not very fair. It does really matter on your perspective and just how life treats you in the end.

I believe "fair" is selfish. We want ourselves to be happy and everyone should agree with it. Maybe it's just with kids but when we think something is "unfair" it's noramally because we didn't get our way.

Yes babytaffster, Selfishness is one trait that men sometimes possess and want happiness only to be monopolized by them without trying to annex others into it. In all , I see life as a just rewarder to all men. It has never cheated any one. On the short term, it may seem but in the long run, it pays.

The descriptions point rightly to the state of affairs existing in the present world scenario. The rich gets richer and their comforts are enhanced beyond parallel.,while the poor and downtrodden class of people are tormented everywhere.

I think thaat it all depends on what side of the coin we are on when we decide if life is fair or not. We seeme to see more of life as being fair when things are going our way. When there is a stumbling block to what we want, we see life as being unfair.

Good from you sender621, people base life on when things are going up and say life is fair, good and just but when the storms are raging and chips are down, they lament say the opposite. Thanks sender61

They say life is what we made it. Whatever happens to our life, they are the results of every decision that we made. But in my opinion, no individual will hope for his life to be in a difficult situation. Definitely, we do our best to have the best life we could ourselves and our loved ones. But there are outside factors that lead many people to suffer. Some lead them to depression, some lead them to lose hope, and some lead them to take their own lives. Many people ask God on why He allow those things to happen not knowing that God himself has no part on those bad and negative things. God is good is will never take part on hurting us. God loves us. He made us to live happily. It is Satan, who tricked Adam and Eve on the very beginning who is responsible for all the bad things that are happening right now. So yes it is, life is unfair because there are some who really wants us to suffer and turn away from God. But definitely, God will give an end to this present situation. Time will come that we could say that life is indeed fair. It is perfect.

Most people will use the term unfair only when things turn not as they expected. It is rather tricky to know what falls under fair and unfair since what you can equate as fair, someone else might equate it as unfair.
