Life Is Not Fair: The Bitter Truth of Life?

The most bitter truth of life

Somewhere, there is a person who was born poor, stupid, ugly, and unathletic. Somewhere else, there is a person who was born rich, smart, beautiful, and athletic. Both were born into those lives, and both did nothing beforehand to earn or deserve them. Many people will argue that this is unfair. 

Ya, so what? Life is unfair, and there is nothing you can do about it. Stupid, ugly, and unathletic are largely genetic traits that are almost entirely immutable. Of course, you could redistribute all the money, but this still leaves one person far better off than the other. 

I am not saying that we should or should not try to introduce some equality between individuals in society, I am simply pointing out that inequality is an inherent characteristic of life.

I would be willing to bet that you are pursuing some goal in your life right now, something about which you think “If only I could get this, then I would be happy.” What is it that is finally going to make you happy? 

Maybe you are trying to get into your dream school, maybe you are about to get that promotion at work, maybe you are starting a family, or maybe you are about to retire and drink mojitos on the beach for the rest of your life. 

Well, I have news for you: none of those things will grant you everlasting happiness and contentment. As soon as you obtain one of those things, you will find something else that you “need” to get to be happy. 

There is no ultimate end to seeking happiness because happiness is by nature a fleeting thing. It is attaining what we don’t have, not enjoying what we do. The harshest part of this reality is that it is true for all things. 

People like to tell you that no matter how much money you make you will never be truly happy. That is true. But then they tell you that family or good relationships will. That is false. Nothing will give you everlasting happiness, so get comfortable with a life that will forever be filled with at least some unhappiness.

Therefore, your birth is all a game. You could be born into a wealthy, happy, poor, cursed or abusive family. It’s like spin the wheel. And you can’t control it. You have to accept the outcome.

It’s best NOT to complain about your problems to others so much, because 20% of the time, they do not care, 80% they are glad you have them. Problem shared is half solved is not always true. Becareful.

We want people doing well, but not better than us. Everyone want to be the number one, want to be at the top.

No one will save you. Your life is your responsibility, so you should learn to defend yourself. Only your Creator can save you.

Even the nicest of people can use you once they know you are a doormat.

Sometimes Death CAN’T wait and just arrives without warning.

There is a 99.9% chance that people are friends with you because of your status/looks/money, and NOT because of you as a person.

Looks DO matter, actually. We assume that attractive people are more friendly, fun, just by looking at them.

You need to learn to say NO. Always saying yes makes you a doormat.

People only notice you when you fail.

Life isn’t fair. It never will be. Some assholes get the good stuff. Some kind hearted souls just… suffer.

Don’t try to be the hero 24/7. Remember, as you are saving others, more people have died around you already. Pleasing others is hurting.

You’re more likely to die on your birthday. (you are 14% more likely to die on your birthday than on any other day of the year - A study by Swiss researchers)

A woman can ruin a man’s life in one false accusation and vice versa.

The world is a cold, dark, place, always has been, and always will be.

There is no real reason to be alive. Except for the pleasure of the Creator.

Avoiding pain/never suffering makes you easier to break.

We’ll never really be able to properly explore the universe. We are on a small, blue planet, a VERY small blue planet compared to the entire universe.

One day, someone will say your name for the last time.

People are selfish. Selflessness where? People probably do things because they think they will get something in return.

Sometimes with the person that means a lot to you, you mean nothing to them.

No matter what you do, some people will hate you anyway.

Out of all relationships you have, only one of them succeed.

“Nice guys” are not nice guys. When Technology is making us more selfish and narcissistic than ever.

Social media is destroying lives of the young, robbing the young of innocence.

One day Mother Nature will stop existing.
One day, humans will go extinct forever.
One day there will be nothing left.
One day the earth's rotation on its axis will stop and it will be end of the days.

So, make hay while the sun shines. Make your life count, fulfill your purpose. Obey the Creator of heaven and earth, and follow His instructions.

Our message is the kingdom of GOD. Our mission is to prepare you for it.
