I learned not to play fair from women. I was taught as a kid to be fair by women, then I learned that life isn’t fair. You have to fight for what you want and be fair to yourself, you can’t expect people to always be fair, it’s a privilege.
We take it for granted because we think it’s a given, but in reality it’s not. Nothing is given everything is earned and learned. That which is taken for granted is easily lost.
