I'm not sure what you think people are "getting" but true happiness does not consist in how much you get. Do you REALLY think all the rich, famous, attractive people are all that happy?! Taking one look at all the problems in Hollywood (drinking, drug usage, failed relationships, suicides, etc. etc.) should put that to rest. If you think you have it so hard, go to some place in the world where they have absolutely NOTHING compared to what we have. They have every right to complain, but they still have faith. Remember "the meek shall inherit the earth" and "to whom much is given, much is expected" it is so very easy in the U.S. to play the compare game because that is what our society is all about glitz and glamor and shallowness, but true happiness comes from being thankful for who and what you are and for the gifts in life which cannot be aquired, but earned and discovered: faith, hope, love, friendship, thoughtfulness, patience, kindness. Learn to value those things and you will be happy.
Everyone in this world will suffer and face difficult times, if God Himself came amongst us,was born into the meagerest means, was lied about, betrayed and abandoned by his closest friends, was despised, was spat upon and then sent to suffer and die an excrutiating death, why should we think we are exempt from suffering??? We who deserve so much worse than the most Innocent Lamb. I'm sure Jesus didn't want to endure his sufferings either but they had a higher purpose and plan and he said "Let your will be done Father, not mine." Shlane, remember that life is short and you need to do the best with what you are given, none of us have all the time in the world to make our lives meaningful.
Whenever I think life isn't fair I need to remind myself to be thankful that I have enough food to eat, have a job to get by, have my health. There are so many people in this world who don't have even a small percentage of those things!!! On this small frutiful continent that is the U.S. it is very hard to see things any differently, but most people in the world do not live the great life we do here in the U.S.
