Adam Saveage of Mythbusters famously likes to say, “I reject your reality and substitute my own!” Unfortunately, this doesn’t always work so well in real life. While it is true that there are many ways of looking at life, there are 3 basic facts of life which one must be reconciled to at some point:
1. Life is hard.
2. Life is not fair.
3. You cannot change other people.
These are not bugs in the system of our life. These are the features. There is nothing you will ever be able to do to change them. There is not enough money or power or influence in all the world to earn an exception with. If you can make peace with these 3 basic fats, life may not necessarily be easier, but it will be easier to take.
