Time and time again I have heard the phrase, "Life ain't fair," and been told to get over it, mostly from my parents and other family members as I was growing up. But quite frankly, this saying has always bothered me and after hearing it so many times I have adapted the belief that life is only unfair because we allow it to be. We spend so much time forcing others to accept that life isn't fair that we don't even think to try to change that fact. And yet there are those few, such as Martin Luther King Jr.(best example I could come up with), who dare to challenge that mind set by actively making life more fair for others. They refuse to accept the norms of their society, and without them, the world wouldn't exist as it does today. I have no doubt in my mind that at least one person had said to them at some point that, "Life ain't fair, get over it." Now imagine if everyone could get out of the mindset that you can't change the unfairness of life, the world would be so much better off. At the very least people would be less cold hearted. Buuut I'm not here to preach, I want to know what your opinions are on the matter. I don't see this topic discussed very often, if ever, so I am extremely curious.
