    I have no idea, which part of your life is not fair for you. I just know that unless you get your ass up and change it, it's gonna pretty likely stay as it is.

    life has been existing long before our minds learnt what "fair" means, thus life does not shape itself to suit our understanding of how things should be idealy. to make it work for ourself in life, we should accept how things are and make the best out of if for our own sake. in the end life will go on no matter if we want to live with it or not.

    Nobody knows. The question is:
    What do you think life is expecting from you?

    but to feel the suffer in this world.
    u must suffer first or do something with hard work to get the happiness.
    life sucks,life is cruel.
    it's all about pain.

    Sure, life is fair. People who know how to take advantage win. People who go on and on about how life is not fair lose.

    Italian writer, best known for the book "The Prince." Good stuff, if a bit hard core. Not so much a historian as much as a political philosopher... now days we say something is "Machiavellian" when we mean that it's harsh and cold but effective.

    be happy is consume, i learnt this in Sesame Street
    Elmo said that the money is important for consume, and also said: work!!!!! have a job!!! when the money of your salary, after pay the rent, the food,the oil.... after all these, then, with this money you can buy things and be happy, like in the announces in tv and in the movies...

    happy life = have money for consume

    Money is the key:

    Gold? yellow, glittering, precious gold? No, gods,
    I am no idle votarist: roots, you clear heavens!
    Thus much of this will make black white, foul fair,
    Wrong right, base noble, old young, coward valiant.
    Ha, you gods! why this? what this, you gods? Why, this
    Will lug your priests and servants from your sides,
    Pluck stout men's pillows from below their heads:
    This yellow slave
    Will knit and break religions, bless the accursed,
    Make the hoar leprosy adored, place thieves
    And give them title, knee and approbation
    With senators on the bench: this is it
    That makes the wappen'd widow wed again;
    She, whom the spital-house and ulcerous sores
    Would cast the gorge at, this embalms and spices
    To the April day again. Come, damned earth,
    Thou common whore of mankind, that put'st odds
    Among the route of nations, I will make thee
    Do thy right nature.

    (Timon of Athens, ACT IV - SCENE III)

    There is a saying in Germany (I'll try to translate it later on) "Und aus dem Chaos sprach eine Stimme zu mir: Lächle und sei froh, es könnte schlimmer kommen. Und ich lächelte und war froh ... und es kam schlimmer".
    And here the translation, somehow: "Out of chaos a voice was speaking to me: Smile and be glad, it could be worse. And I smiled and I was glad ... and it be kam worse."

    Life seems not to be fair at all time, but there is always a chance to change things, to make the wrong right. I had a lot of mess to clean up during my life, even it's not been that long so far, but there's always something u can fight for.
    If you give up, u loose, if you fight there's a chance to win.

    Life? My guess is that you are not talking about "daily life", but life as a whole ... and as soon as you use the word "fair", which is a comparative term, you are comparing yourself to other people ... people with better job, better love life, better homes, better something and better everything ...

    I have been asking myself that type of questions for many years since I was 8 years old, after my grandfather's death, and then my father's one year later, and then my own car accident another year after ... question such as "why do the other kids have more toys", "why do the other kids have father", "why do the other kids this and that" ...

    These continued when more of my family members passed away, and I was still a teenager ...

    After not getting any answers (hahaha, kind of like my many other questions), but had observed myself and the people around me, I came to realise that each of our lives had been pre-written somewhere, including how we will grow up, what we will learn, whom we will meet and who will "leave" us, what we will do etc ... I believe that when we talk about "changing our lives", we are just unconsciously following this path (or "story line") of this pre-written text ...

    So to answer your question ... I suggest stop comparing yourself against other people, and stop using (or thinking about) comparative terms such as "fair", "good" etc ... just live it out to the max, follow your heart and also your brain ... enjoy the happiness and achievement, and live through any sadness and unhappy events ...
