Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.


Didn't know how to word the thread title but oh well.


I just don't understand it. Why are some people born unlucky while other are not? For example why does Susan have to have cancer while Mike does not? Should Susan really live her life as a cancer patient? Another example is why does Keith have to be born blind while Sarah has perfect vision? Why does one person get to live fine while the other one lives differently? The same applies to people stricken with poverty. Nobody should live in poverty but some people do. Why is that the case? So some people are born differently and unlucky on this earth while others are just fine. I get it. Life can be unfair and cruel. But there is no reason why Jamie should be born with down syndrome while Anthony gets bipolar and Hannah gets nothing wrong with her. It doesn't make sense. Have humans really not found a way for people like Susan, Keith, Jamie, and Anthony to live regular human beings? I know that some people who live like this are fine and healthy but it still makes no sense for them to live like that. Do we really need to be separated like that?

Can someone explain this to me? Because I don't get how we're all human but we're so divided in certain of ways.


Enjoy!!!!

There's no such thing as being inherently unlucky, but which unfortunate circumstance which some arise. The circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant; it is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.

Because nothing is perfect in this world.Some say it's will of some deity,all thats happening.But i find such explanations consolations at best.Sense of unfairness is only human felt behaviour. There is no fairness/unfairness in nature,everything just is.Anything beyond that is human made concept. Sure it sucks that some people have heavy handicaps and is born into bad neighborhood,but it's just as nature is.Have to make best of cards that you have been dealt so to say.

Life doesn't give a shit who you are or where you come from when it arrives at your door to fuck you over.

7.125 billion people on this Earth, more or less, not everyone wll have the best genes and environment. It comes down to chance, and also ability, and motivation.

Life is life no matter what the circumstance.

When I got hit by a car I could look at it two ways.

Why was I so unlucky to be hit by a car? I was just on the pavement where pedestrians should be, minding my own business! Why me?

This is my lucky day, I got hit by a car and survived with bruises but not even a scratch.

I chose the latter.

Because life is not uniform. No person's situation is identical to another's, even those born to the same parents. Through variation we each have our own trials and methods for dealing with them.

It's through the shared experience that we pull ouselves and others out of the mud, and hopefully are the stronger for it as a whole.

It also might have opened you up to new circumstances as well, so you see it as a blessing in disguise. If you didn't get hit, you might not have met so-and-so.

I'm so lucky that even though I'm suffering as someone said, which to me is training. Nobody notices. People say " your lucky." Did I just give a hint to the answer to your question? I perspective is that I am training, not suffering, and this makes me lucky.
