I came across someone posting a question of “I worked so hard and did everything I could, where is my reward?” on Quora or somewhere the other day.

This got me baffled for a while.

I’m not sure whose fault it is. Maybe I should blame the confirmation bias of the success stories with positive pep talks all around the internet. But, since when efforts will always pay off?

To be frank, life generally sucks, hope usually fails, heart breaks most of the time.

People can’t get what they want no matter how hard they tried, how patient they remained.

Accepting that makes me sleep tight.
