Everyone faces different obstacles; everyone has a different path. Some people have what may seem to be more advantages than others. That is Hashem’s plan for us.
The moment we start comparing our path to someone else’s path, or to what we deem is ‘fair’ or ‘unfair’ we lose sight of what’s in front of us and what life is calling for us to do.
We don’t have a choice but to make the most with what we have. That is a very simple fact, but it’s not an easy one to accept or digest. We wish for life to be “fair” and “just” – yet it isn’t. It is what it is. We must march forward anyway.
