1. Life is never going to be 'fair' whatever that means.
MerryRaven, i know it's not how you meant it, but that makes me think of the movie Labyrinth and David Bowie saying It's not fair is it? Hmmmm. I wonder what your basis for comparison is.
Well my mother told me that first one long before anyone knew who David Bowie was. LOL
Only when I said "It's not fair!!!" She would say "Get used to it. Life is never fair and you are going to have to learn to cope."
Or worse yet snapped, "No it is not fair it is reality!"
Well......you've got to admit, the phrase "life's not fair" is THAT much harder to take when you're, say, twelve years old, and the person who's SAYING it is the very person who's created the circumstances that are making life "unfair" at that moment. For example:
MY MOM: Freaky, clean up the kitchen!
ME: But that's not fair, I didn't make that mess, Bigfoot (a.k.a. my brother) and his friend Bratling did.
MY MOM: LIFE isn't fair, get used to it.
