1.) Life is as fair or cruel as one believes that it is. What matters more than that is one's willingness and ability to change their situation. A truly intelligent person knows how to make life very cruel and very fair for themselves when they choose to.

2.) The only expectation that I think is guaranteed for anyone is another challenge to test them. And, the only expectation I definitely want for myself is the ability to overcome them.

3.) If I get overwhelmed, I just sleep it off. The next day, I get back to my life and try to learn from the mistake if I can.

Life is fair, but it is our thinking that makes it cruel.

My view on life is that it is cruel. Because sometimes you can feel like the happiest person in the world and at other times you can feel like you want to kill yourself.

I expect to get what I want in life. Since we all have the ability to do so, then there can't be any reason why we shouldn't. Nothing is impossible, because life is life.

I don't let life bring me down, because I know that if you cave into the cruelty of life, you will change into a better or worse person. I want to stay as the me that I am. I'm not a fake, I'm the real deal. I always keep my head up high even in the most depressing times in my life.

What are your views on life?
A-Life is something created to be beautiful, however it can be abused by others to defeat the original purpose. While here, I suppose (if it makes any sense) we're here to learn lessons and possibly have fun along the way.

Do you think life is fair, cruel or both?
A-Both. During our lives we find those that we love and enjoy ourselves, but then we suffer through events that shatter us, making us wonder what the point of even continuing is. Whether this is because of negative karma or not and whether or not the karma of someone else's actions will affect you depends. When we suffer for no reason, or the negative karma that has nothing to do with us somehow finds a way in, the world is a cruel place to be in.

What do you expect out of life and why?
A-I honestly don't know. I keep failing, sometimes when I try hard it's not enough, and my mind's a mess. Life's shitty at times (I do have happy moments where I'm with my special someone or just joking around) and I don't know if I'll get the "happy end" that I wish for. I want to write (light) novels and manga and be a concept artist/animator for video games, but I feel like I'm running out of time. In my life I can either get a "happy end" or a "bad end" and I don't know which one I'll win.

When life brings you down, what do you do to get back up and keep moving forward?
A-Call me cheesy, but quotes and thinking of certain people. The quotes give me hope and strength and I don't want to disappoint anyone; I want to be someone they can be proud of.

What are your views on life?

This life is incredibly pointless. There's no way of knowing for sure why we are here and why we were put here, and to me all the options we have to choose from (religious, natural, etc) don't offer much to me. It's all incredibly pointless seeming since we can't fully know anything. My views are rather nihilistic. This world really doesn't have anything, and it's incredibly pointless.

Do you think life is fair, cruel or both?

It's cruel. The fact that we're even here seems to be a cruel act. Whether by a god, or nature. I'd honestly would rather not be here. I have to watch the news and see children being brutally beaten, or hear about adults slaughtering each other for no reason. Bad things happen to people who don't deserve it, and just the negative really does outweigh the good and it's horrible.

What do you expect out of life and why?

I expect nothing to go my way, but I try to keep a little hopeful. I don't expect things, but I hope for them. I hope to graduate university, I hope to get the job I need, I hope I can meet someone and live out a life with them. I just hope to have the 'average' life, but I don't expect it. I don't deserve to expect things to happen, that's why, but I remain hopeful to avoid getting upset.

When life brings you down, what do you do to get back up and keep moving forward?

I just suck it up. I have no coping other than attempting to push whatever is affecting me down, and trying to be rather apathetic about things. This life is pointless to me. The things that bring me down are also pointless and meaningless in the end.

Is life fair?
If by "is life fair", you mean does everyone get a fair chance in life, then no, life is not fair.
Death, on the other hand, appears to be, so perhaps living with a little unfairness is better than the alternative.

Is life cruel?
I would say to live is to know suffering. Everyone, at some point in life, has wishes that are not granted. No matter their strength, intelligence, their connections or their wealth, everyone will have something they strive for that will elude them. What would life be, though, if there were nothing to long for? Success is meaningless without the chance for failure.

What do I expect out of life and why?
At this point... I'm not looking very far ahead due to recent revelations regarding my health; I don't know what to expect since my health situation apparently is weird enough to prevent definitive answers. Barring death or incapacitation, I expect to get out of life what I put into it; discounting luck, that does seem to me to be how life goes.

When life brings you down, what do you do to get back up and keep moving forward?
I generally try to find something to do that I enjoy and relax a bit, until I'm ready to do something about life again. Honestly, I haven't been the most forward moving person over the years, as much as I hate to admit it. It's fun doing the things that I enjoy, but they don't really accomplish anything more than enjoyment.

I have everything in life except a love/soulmate.

I would like to meet somebody who can recite poetry to me, watch the stars at night by a campfire and just enjoy the simple things in life together.
I want this because I believe this is what can truly make me happy.

In addition, I'm an artist (not by profession), so I need a muse. I need someone who can inspire me artistically. My last muse was 10 years ago in High School.

I don't find any meaning in life. It is cruel and unforgiving, yet it is worth living. Even if you think that life isn't worth it, please hold on. If not living it for yourself, live it for the people you love and hold dear, and for the people you will meet and change forever. Nothing would be the same if you did not exist. Keep fighting no matter what life throws at you, and if nothing else, do what I do when I'm sad and pretend you are the main character in a trama genre anime. Things suck but you will get through them, you will get another season, and you will get a good ending. Don't let your main character get killed, fight.

Fair can be more cruel than unfair. One's perception of fair can also be different from another's.

What do you expect out of life and why?

Setting expectations for life will only end up in regret and frustration. One can set goals and make every effort to meet those goals, but they shouldn't set expectations.

When life brings you down, what do you do to get back up and keep moving forward?

I don't let life bring me down.
