Life is not fair. We can choose to make the most of what we are given. We can make better choices and take better paths. We can do everything like we are supposed to – stay out of trouble, stay off drugs and alcohol, be a good citizen. We can choose to be a good person, to be kind and giving to others, We can choose to have a positive attitude and to be forgiving.
But despite all of these things we choose to become, the fact remains that life is not fair. It will never be fair. That is the fact. But it is also a fact that despite the adversities that I have been dealt, I still choose to be a good, kind person.
People have faced worse things than me, I am fortunate to still be alive to live my life, whether life treats me fair or not. I am still here.
