I never thought that I was the kind of person who figured life should be fair. I really didn't. I've always thought that children should learn that life isn't fair so that they can be prepared to accept the fact when they are adults.
But recently, I've caught myself saying "that's just not fair! Why do they get this, and I don't?" and other similar whiny statements.
Then I catch myself. Because I really don't like whiners. And life really isn't fair. If we all got what we deserved, we'd all be in much worse situations.
And I will just have to keep reminding myself of that.
