the ups and downs of life

Not Everyone Gets The Life They Want

I was watching a tv show and this was one of the lines. While I have always known this, it was the way the character said it that really made the words have such an impact. I was like, “Wow! That is such a horrible thing. It is not right or fair.” We aren’t promised right or fair in life. I know that. You know that. But it doesn’t change the fact that we don’t like it.

I know a lot of people who don’t have the lives they want. It may look like it to the world, but I know the truth. Some people have the materialistic things but don’t have love. Some people have love but don’t have the materialistic things. Some people have talent but don’t have much else.

Life doesn’t deal us fair hands. There are days when I wish life was fair. Then there are other days when I am glad it isn’t. I don’t know that I would like to get what I really deserve. But then some days I feel like I deserve better than what I have. I think we all feel that way. I wish more people had happiness. I wish the right people had married the right people. I wish people had enough money to pay their bills. I wish there was more laughter in the world.

Not everyone gets the life they want but I sure hope they get a life they can tolerate and that brings them some joy. Everyone deserves some joy.
