Life is not fair...

14 February 2014, 08:56
I know that the title of my article is a cliche. I know you've heard it a million times before. But what I also know is what it's like to be on the receiving end of this unfairness. I'm not talking about accidents or random events. I'm talking about bridges you think you cannot cross, rivers that seem too strong to swim and hardships that seem like they will never go away.

My life is not important, I am not famous and I never will be. But what I do know is what it feels like to be put down, to be discriminated against, to be made fun of, to be laughed at and to feel like you are lower than dirt.

And what I want to say to all of you who feel this way is that you are not alone.  Life IS unfair sometimes. People will hurt you. People will disappoint you. This is a given.

My message of hope to all of you who share my experience is to realize that things will pass. Time will change things. People who you thought were just acquaintances will surprise you with their understanding. In your darkest hour you are NOT alone. You will recover from this dark hole to become a better person and hopefully you will give something back some day, however small that is.

I love you all and my name is Rachel xx
