Since I have heard of the saying, “life is unfair”, I have yet to believe it is. Life has a start and an end. In between are the challenges and happiness that make the past, the present and the future. The challenges are the reasons we mistakenly think life is unfair of which life has no future. We forget sometimes that each life is uniquely weaved for its own being we do not compare what one got and the other did not get. The life I managed to built out of what and who I met yesterday is the result of my life today which intermittently the guiding foundation of my life tomorrow no matter how short or long the term is. Life is a full scale of opportunities for one to miss or gain or learn from or earn from. It’s only unfair if I think my past and present is not useful for the future. Fortunately, I’m in a life which consists of yesterday, today and tomorrow so it is never unfair.
