Unfair

life2

Sometimes we feel (and often say) that life’s not fair, or that some things happen for a reason or for no reason at all. You know, that kind of determinism that’s tied to someone upstairs or others around us. Or someone half a world away. Bad karma, good karma. That sort of stuff

The truth is that it doesn’t matter what you believe in, because some things will always be out of your control. Living cautiously has nothing to do with the things that happen to you. Or at least that’s how I chose to see the world a long time ago.

And I do my best not to regret stuff. Or feel sorry for myself. It doesn’t work all the time.

Because this is what my legendary bad luck taught me: you can’t control the outcome of everything you do in this life. And, besides, you never know where the road might take you.

You know… blaming the world for what happens bad to you, blaming others, regretting stuff, feeling sorry what you no longer have. Feeling sorry for yourself. That’s just the worst way of living. You’re not exactly fighting, you’re not taking matters into your own hands. You just ask, “What have I done wrong? Why me?”

And it’s really funny that most times life’s only answer is, “Why not?”

After all, you never know what worse luck your bad luck has saved you from. Lots and lots of blessings in disguise these days.

That’s it for tonight. You take what you want from this short post.

  1. Very true words. It’s never about what the situation is like; it’s always about what it taught us about our person. We can come up with so many questions to ask but deep down we already know the answers. Would life truly be fair if we were not trained to cope with difficult as well?

  2. Great Post! I completely agree. I only wish more people could let go of regret and disappointment for what isn’t.

    This is absolutely true on many levels because I was in the whole “worse luck actually bringing good” kind of situation. There was an exam the other day and I had no idea about it at all. I had zoned out completely and was preparing for some other subject. Luckily, I casually called a friend and they told me about the exam I had no idea about. I was sore,devastated and utterly angry over my irresponsibility and I thought it was BAD LUCK.
    But once I got to know about the exam I sat and studied my ass off and I tell you I passed the exam with good marks and managed to do good in the other exam as well .
    So, that incident made me realize it is all about timing and sometimes the things we percieve as “bad luck” is what saves us.

    Thank you Cristian ! <3

    This was a beautiful post. I used to have that victim mentality that I adopted from my mother, but steadily over the years, I have shed that view point and often times, the answer to “why me?’ is why not you? We are living, breathing, functioning humans in a dynamic, tumultuous world; we have to be prepared to plow through whatever is lain before us. Beautiful posts
