And so, they said, the storm turned and went another way. After all, what father, when his child asks for bread, would give him a stone? Fairness is one of the most compelling claims of the American Dream, a vision of success propelled by hard work, determination, and maybe the occasional pair of bootstraps. Wherever I have lived in North America, I have been sold a story about an unlimited horizon and the personal characteristics that are required to waltz toward it.
It is the language of entitlements. It is the careful math of deserving, meted out as painstakingly as my sister and I used to inventory and trade our Halloween candy. In this world, I deserve what I get. I earn my keep and keep my share. In a world of fair, nothing clung to can ever slip away. He was like beachfront property when I probably could have settled for a suburban condo. At the time, however, I mostly thought about how beautiful he was, how great he was at explaining the finer points of skateboarding, and how he would never lose his hair.
Now he rushes into my office and throws his arms around my neck, and all my words are pouring out. I have loved you forever. Please take care of our son. I will! But the truth is not going to help us anymore. I call my parents on the walk to the hospital, but I have to stop and lean against a high stone wall for a minute.
Toban puts his hand on my back to steady me. We are both gone, gone, gone somewhere else, flitting back and forth between now and where we used to be. You have to change your will!
I have been, coincidentally, drawing up a living will for my life insurance policy, a policy I will be denied because they will find out that I have cancer and reject the claim, a bet they no longer want to take. But right now my mother is confused.
So let's not confuse ourselves. Love isn't unfair, people are. Everybody has different feelings. It is obvious that sometimes our feelings don't match with others. You shouldn't count that as unfair, it is just the way it always happens. Try to find someone who loves you for who you really are, that will make you understand that actually love is fair.

Well, love is love. You can't really control it. It takes time to find the right person. Just believe in yourself.
Love is unfair because sometimes the people we love, don't love us back. Love is an emotion and we cant force people to feel a certain way. Why is life so unfair? Life is all about lessons that make us stronger individuals.

Love is a tricky thing. Its wonderful and amazing. But it is also nasty and mean. What makes it unfair is we have zero control over how others feel about us.
