We all have rough days on the job regardless of how much you love doing your job. There will always be superiors or other employees who would irritate you. There will always be people who would spread rumours about you. You might not even get your salary on time. However, if you really want to grow as a person, thinking that life’s unfair can definitely help you toughen up.
Life’s unfair because life never had a standard of fairness in the first place. Laws and governments could only try to limit the capabilities of people and put them in an ethical position, but in the end, someone can still find a loophole to exploit other people. Exploitation is something immense, especially when you realize a company is paying less taxes than your company.
Life’s unfair because not everyone has an equal chance for success in both career and love. However, someone who looks at the unfairness as a challenge instead of an obstacle, may find success. I’ve found myself working and satisfied as a junior clerk in my work, only to find some rare occasions, such as a senior quitting his work, to have me in his place instead. You may call this luck, but when you feel satisfaction, even if forced, time passes quicker and you can see a change in opportunity that you will still continue to deny.
Philosophers have only said that the person who finally accepts he is imprisoned is the only one who finds the exit. Indeed this is true, because there are many exits in a prison, not just the door right in front of you.
