Why is life so unfair?

January 26, 2007 7:25am CST
Do you ever have those days where you think life is ganging up on you and nothing's going right? Lets see, in the last week alone the following has happened: Building I work had a gas leak. Building I work had a fire(same night as gas leak) I got food poisoning twice Lost a promotion(unjustified) Lost out on a loan Got ripped off on my paycheck Got ripped off with a sale. Missed out on getting a better job Lost an important item of mine Now that my work week is over, I'm hoping the worst is over. I've been so cursed this week that I don't know what to think. The saying goes, "if you didn't have bad luck, you'd have no luck at all." I ask why there is so much bad luck, and why can't I have enough good luck? The only good luck I've had this week was getting a photography gig that pays decently. Oh, and maybe surviving the horror at work that night. But that's it. I'm sure anyone reading this is now speechless, but hey, it's the truth. Life has thrown me such a nasty curve ball that it's going to take some time to get over it and find some better luck.

I do try, but sometimes it's hard to do. I just wish that there was no such thing as bad luck. I don't need any more bad luck.

Yes, I do have those days and weeks. They seem to come quite frequently. When I do, I look around and find someone that is having worse problems than me and try to help them. It makes me feel a little better and takes my mind off of things. Hope your streak is over and don't let it drag you down!! Have a good day.

I'm sure that's all it is, just a streak. I know it happens to everyone, but you never imagine that so many things could go wrong at one time. I don't know how I managed to get through the week, but I did, and that's what keeps me going. I should do what you do and try to help someone else who is worse shape than I am. It's good, sound advice. Thanks for sharing it with me. :)

I'm sorry to hear you've had such a rough week. Sometimes it does seem as though the whole world is against us, but we have to keep going despite this. Hopefully things will start to improve for you next week after you have a much needed relaxing weekend.

Heh, weekends consist of me sleeping the day away. I work nights and sleep all day. But it's always nice to sleep when others are working :), well for me anyways. I'm hoping the weekend helps me unwind, but I have to just wait and see. Thanks for such a quick reply. And I "keep on trucking", as they say. :P
