Life’s not fair.
Bad things happen to good people. Good things happen to bad people.
Sometimes the person who did least work gets all the credit.
Sometimes the criminal wins the lottery.
Sometimes the guilty go free.
Most of the time things tend to go the way you’d expect though.
The kid that studies every day gets the good exam results.
The guy that goes to the gym 5 times a week gets the good body.
The girl that makes time for her friends has friends that make time for her.
The parents that were there for their kids have kids that are there for them when they’re older.
So what do we do?
We do the things that will give us the best chance to get what we want, and when it doesn’t work out, when life’s not fair, we suck it up.
Because that’s all you can do. Worrying about it won’t stop it happening. Moaning about it after the fact won’t change anything. Fixating on it will only upset you and leave you angry and bitter. It’s important to learn to let it go.
You try your best, you work hard, and when life hands you lemons, you go and find some Gin and Tonic to put with it.
