Is life really unfair?

What are your views?

I think life is just full of ups and downs

Answers 5

Life in its original state was designed by God to be perfect and fair to everyone. However, the selfishness of man is what brings unfairness to life. So, it's best to get used to the fact that man has selfish nature

On the other hand, do not just sit idle and expect good things and opportunites to come locate you. Be up and doing and make something out of nothing.

Just like you said, ups and downs are here with us, in other words is could be said that they are natural.

Night is as good as the day etc. allowing our hearts to master the dynamism of life will save us from many internal and external problems, yes, it could even save us from many unnecessary prayers.

So went Satan forth from the presence of the Lord, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown. And he took him a potsherd to scrape himself withal; and he sat down among the ashes.
Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die. But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips. Job 2:7-10 (KJV)

Hope my answer helped.


The fairness of life is dependent on what we give to life. If we love, them we'll receive love. Just like on Peeranha, some people are looking for votes but they do not give votes to others. For them, life will never be fair.


It can be, yes. If you are born in a country where opportunities are limited due to political miss-management, yes this is unfair. However, if you are living in a relatively free nation with good economics and you are whining that life isn't fair because you missed out on a job - well that's just you.

However M, you have arrived at blockchain now and opportunities will soon be abundant. So seize and enjoy.

    Like in Nigeria, opportunities are hidden from the masses. You get to see so many persons without jobs whereas there are jobs. Those in charge reserve it for family and kindred alone.
  • Thank you for your detailed response. I hope people in higher positions don't get to misuse their power.

Yes life can be unfair, I always remind myself if I'm disappointed over something, to "remember what I have" and that there are millions of worthy people out there who would love to have my life and what I have.

Nothing to see yet
