how do you live through life without having to bear all the problems in the world? when you think you deserve all the attention and help in the world, no one seems to care. everyone turns their back on you, when you think you have the worst situation in the world. and then again you ask, "why doesn't anyone seem to care?" you cry everynight over things that don't seem to end, and the list of unanswerable questions run endlessly through your mind. and yet again the sun shines on you on another day, like nothhin's wrong, and you pretend to go on with your day as if nothing's wrong too.. until you get tired of everything, and you finally let go of the hurt and sorrow... and you submit yourself to the reality that life is never fair-- never was and will never be.

No one ever claimed that life was fair. Don't look to others for happiness, find and make your own. If no one cared you would not be getting this response. Every day when you get up write this down; I am happy I am not a ....... Write five sentences, each with a different thing you are happy you are not. At the end of five days look at what you have written and then think about how good you have it. Happiness is there for the taking, no one will give it to you. You have to go get it. You can, so do it!

That sounds like you have had a bad day! You are right in essence, as life is not fair if you hold expectations! I believe the fairest life can get is when you aspire to do something or be someone for the challenge of doing it and not for what the rewards may be! Life is to short to be burdened with so much negativity... smile and relax more. If things don't work out the first time do them differently the next and the next, learning on your path!

bad day, yes.. maybe your right.. if we hold expectations, then life gets worse everytime... so maybe we just have to go with the flow, eh? and start appreciating what life has to offer us.

Life is not fair because life could never be perfect. Everyone undergoes pain, sufferings, joys and sorrows because basically these would be your turning points in your life. It just depends on how you handle the situation. I'm not an expert about life, but somehow learned many things from my mistakes and even from the successes I've been through. Yes, there are times we seem that no body cares for us because we always want them to love and give us care in the most wonderful way we could think of. We tend to set expectations from different people and we tend to satisfy what we want. We are not able to recognize that what others have given us is already their best way of showing how much they love and care for us. It's just normal to feel this way because everyone experiences this kind of life's situation. What I can advise you is just to keep going and never give up. You'll soon find the brighter side of life. :) Happy posting and never forget to make good discussions too. Yngatz kah always, friend! :)
