We know it’s not “life’s job” to make everything perfect, it’s our own challenge. Surrendering to this fact also keeps us from feeling sorry for others because we are reminded that everyone is dealt a different hand, and everyone has unique strengths and challenges. He continues, The fact that life isn’t fair doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do everything in our power to improve our own lives or the world as a whole. To the contrary, it suggests that we should.
It’s a fine line between surrendering to the emotional feeling that life cannot be fair for everyone, and the ability to make life just a little bit better for someone else or for yourself. From those emotions we develop compassion…”and compassion is a heartfelt emotion that delivers loving-kindness to everyone it touches.”
