It's funny, I used to have this idea that there was justice in the world. That somehow everything found balance over time and that people who had done wrong but seemingly got away with it, would eventually suffer justice at the hands of fate.

I really don't see that this is true. There isn't always balance. Good fortune and success can come and quite often comes to those who are not deserving. People who work hard and treat others fairly may never prosper and may only find burden and failure and inequity while those who intentionally harm, slander and deceive others can find success and happiness; even contentment.

Fairness shouldn't be something we think about. If it is an expectation, we will always be disappointed. It's best to ignore any concept of fairness and concentrate on our own happiness and goals and live knowing that we never intentionally harmed another along the way.
