“Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is a little like expecting the bull not to attack you because you are a vegetarian.” Dennis Wholey
So, you think because you’re a good person, the world owes you? Think again. The person who’s going to get the glory and the rewards meant for you is the prick who was supposedly helping you. The person announcing what you did, appearing to be your friend, is the person who gets the glory. The lying thieves, who make it look like they inspired you to do what you did, get the credit and the glory.
The world does not owe anything to anyone. Life is not fair to anyone. In fact, expect the complete opposite: nice people get trampled on while the lying, thieving, greedy ones get to the top.
Do you deserve what you got? Do they deserve what they got? It doesn’t matter. You will get what you put your mind and your talents against.
Go ahead and tell the bull you’re a vegetarian and see how far that gets you. You overcome the bulls attack by being a matador, using your skill, not hoping life will take care of you. Life takes care of no one, unless they take care of themselves.
The lying thief doesn’t deserve to be rich, and the generous, nice person doesn’t deserve to be poor, but hey, shit happens. Deal with it and go after what you think you ‘deserve’. No one will just hand it to you, that is until you die, at which point you will most likely get what you deserve, but who wants to wait that long?
