Life is Not Fair and Neither is Divorce


Life is Not Fair and Neither is Divorce

As I was watching the Rams and Saints game the other day with my family, my granddaughter said that it wasn’t fair that the Rams won the game because of a bad call by the referee. The bad call then gave the Rams a chance for a comeback, which they did, and won the game in overtime and are now heading to the Super Bowl. I said to my granddaughter, as I had always told my kids when they were little, that sometimes life is not fair and that is just the way it is. True fairness would be where there is an equitable system of balance, such as where those who work harder get more than those who are lazy. The problem is that, when thinking just of ourselves, my definition of fair and your definition of fair is likely to be different. Life will never be fair but you can not dwell on it and you just need to get past it. One of the biggest disservices we can do to our children is to shield them from loss and adversity.

Divorce is the same way as life and it is not always fair. Many people don’t deserve what they get and many people don’t get what they deserve. They are always going to be hard knocks in life, but it is how we deal them that makes us a better person. Holding onto something just because you were treated unfairly is not going to help you move forward, it is just going to keep you down.” When you feel you’ve been treated unfairly, we often hold a grudge because we don’t want to let the other person off the hook. But who’s really hooked—the one who’s holding on or the one who’s moved on? A wise person once said, “Accept what is, let go of what was, and have faith in what will be.
