Life's a bitch like that, more often then not.
Someone once said "All is fair in love and war" but that's just a nice way of saying nothing is fair in love and war. I believe this to be another of the world's unfortunate truths since both, my many observations and my few experiences, have proven this time and time again.
You'd think by now that humans would be used to love and war's unfairness. We may be used to seeing it but we never get used to experiencing it. Strange how insignificant it seems until you experience it first hand.
