Indifference

Some people say that life is not fair – it’s not, but it isn’t unfair either. Life, on the whole, is indifferent and that can be scarier than the idea that someone is out to get you.

It’s one of the hardest things to realize. I came upon an accident and tried to help a woman who’d been hurt – she kept asking me ‘what did I do wrong?’ ‘What did I do to deserve this?’

The long and short of it was – nothing. Well, she might have lost track of where she was, she may have caused the accident but… there was no ‘deserving’ it just happened.

The biggest problems I’ve had in the world involved accepting that sometimes, there is no reason. What matters is what you do with what happens.
