Sometimes things don’t go right.
A person gets a position, title or recognition that you (and maybe many others) know that this person did not earn.
But they have it, and it’s not being taken away.
The check is cleared.
The story is published.
The trophy has been presented.
What’s worse is that you know you’re better than them.
If things were correct, everything that went to them would have gone to you. That’s the part that brought this farce to your attention in the first place. Otherwise, you probably wouldn’t have noticed.
Well, such is life. Sometimes things are out of balance.
For every fraud who’s receiving more than they should have, there’s someone else who’s getting less than their due.
That’s fucked up!
I didn’t write this to commiserate over the harsh reality of life. I’m also not here to tell you how to police it. Because it can’t be policed.
Sometimes the cashier gives you more change than they were supposed to.
Sometimes the credit card company charges inaccurate interest fees.
That’s the game of living.
Here’s the make-good of it all: everything balances out.
If you owe, you will pay.
If you’re owed, you will get what’s yours.
Your only responsibility: Stay in the game.
Everything is not supposed to work in your favor all the time. Coasting downhill wouldn’t be as fun if you never had to do the work of trekking uphill.Everything is not supposed to work in your favor all the time.

The imbalance of rewards is not an error — the error is in thinking that it’s supposed to always be balanced.
Don’t bitch when life’s sun rays aren’t shining on you. It’s always nighttime somewhere on earth. Your summer is someone else’s winter.
Let the game play out. Looking back, you can connect the dots and see that it was all correct all along.
