5 Things To Remember When Life Is Unfair


A lot of negative feelings go through your mind, when life has dealt you with a bad deck of cards.

You feel angry.

You feel frustrated.

You feel like life has let you down, and things won’t get better anytime soon.

We have all been there.  It’s one of the toughest things in the world to accept, when the chips have fallen; and it happens when you least expect it.  It’s during these times when it’s hard not to hate, and not be angry at the world and life.

You have to stand back up and put yourself out there again. You’re is stronger than you realize. I’ve been there and I’ve seen heartbreak through to the other side. It takes time and patience.  Don’t let this discourage you, though. You can accept that life is unfair and still relish it. You aren’t in total control of your life, but there is a nice big chunk of your life over which you have complete authority–beat that part to a pulp.

It’s so hard to give you advice when you’ve got a broken heart, but some words can heal, and this is my attempt to give you hope. You are stronger than you know!

Please remember…

Lesson#1:  ” Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though sometimes it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and grieves which we endure help us in our marching onward.”

Henry Ford

Lesson#2:  “It is important to feel the anger without judging it, without attempting to find meaning in it. It may take many forms: anger at the health-care system, at life, at your loved one for leaving. Life is unfair. Death is unfair. Anger is a natural reaction to the unfairness of loss.”

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Lesson#3:  “There is unfairness in life. But seek grace to be just and be gentle.”Lailah Gifty Akita, Pearls of Wisdom

Lesson#4:  “Everyone is tested. One might think it is unfair to be singled out and subjected to a particular temptation, but this is the purpose of mortal life—to be tested. And the answer is the same for everyone: we must, and we can, resist temptations of any kind.”

Author: Boyd K. Packer

Lesson#5: “It may be unfair, but what happens in a few days, sometimes even a single day, can change the course of a whole lifetime…”

Author: Khaled Hosseini

And of course, if you’re struggling with any of these points, know that you are not alone.  We are all in this together.  Many of us are right there with you, working hard to feel better, think more clearly, and keep our lives on track.
