    Those that got get and those that lie, cheat and steal get ahead. I don't know whatever happened to working hard and being honest. Doesn't seem to work anymore.

    right on! You can't choose what family you're born to. Make the best of what you got and you'll be fine

    Life is what it is. We get what we get and some things can be changed, often with great effort, whereas other things cannot be changed. Learn to accept what you have if it can't be changed and if you are unhappy about something which can be changed, then do what you can to change it.

    Life begins with a clean slate and to that end it begins infinitely fairly!
    What you do with and end up with and accomplish and retain in life is directly proportional to your inputs and efforts!
    I would say that any system which perfoms in this efficient manner where input equals outgo is definitely fair!

    I dont blame anyone of my problems . When i said life is unfair isnt because of me . I was referring to the insane and absurd things than happen to millions of other people in the world.

    I can't vote in that poll because it's both fair and unfair to me and everyone else at one time or another. Right this minute I could say it's fair, but in an hour something could happen and I'd say unfair.

    Earthquakes, floods, cyclones, disease, starvation, homelessness.......

    Life is unfair because some people get much better situations than others.
    Some are born with good health, others with poor health. Some have perfect bodies, others have birth defects. Some have loving parents, others abusive parents who could care less. Some rich, and some poor. Nobody has any control over those things. Some people just get more and better chances along the way. Some are just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Sure, some of life is what we make of it. We have some control and some ability to change things. We can't change everything, and some things are nearly impossible to overcome. Life is not fair by design. It never has been, and it never will be. I don't see stating these facts as complaining.

    An interesting way of looking at it. :smile:

    Though, for me, life is neither fair, nor unfair.

    If you look at life as a competition you are going to lose. If you look at it as a burden you are going to struggle.

    If you see life as a gift you at least give yourself the chance of appreciating it.

    I think you are missing the point somewhat. Don't put effort whining about life's unfainess and what is happening to everyone else. Put effort into being positive and make the very best of your own situation. Some things you cannot change so accept them and get on with it.
