Life's not fair......but that's not fair!

Do you ever get so caught up in life's injustices that you forget that you know they exist? Confusing right? What I mean is everyone has heard the cliche that life isn't fair, so why do we get so upset when this is proven? I don't say this to mean that you shouldn't rise up against the huge injustices there are in the world. I refer here more to the small, trivial injustices.

For example I pride myself on being a good friend, coworker, fellow world traveler, person etc. So sometimes (who am I kidding most of the time) I get upset when I feel that I am taken for granted or not treated with the same respect. I had a situation like this during this week. I was so upset at having been "overlooked" that I allowed myself to function out of that feeling and not think logically. I had to remind myself that I am not a good person so that people will be good people to me, but often with the expectation that people will not return the favor.

This year in school I have really struggled to identify how my faith plays into my professional work. I have been so used to separating these two topics that the request by my professors to probe into this was foreign to me. I finally discovered that I had such a hard time with this because for me I am a social worker as it is what The Lord had called me to do. I am a good and moral person (with the normal amount of sin) because I believe that is the way to do as The Lord expects of me. It is this simple and I don't feel it requires further discussion.

So to sum it all up do what you feel is right, but don't expect anyone to treat you a certain way because of this. I feel most people try to do right as well, but we all slip. *My religious views are my own and I don't believe in pushing those on others.
