No, not original. Paraphrased. Can anyone guess what phrase I replaced with “Life”?
Life does not need to be fair to you.
Life does not need to offer you a chance of success
In exchange for what you’ve already brought to the table.
Life’s difficulty is not matched to your skills.
Life’s price is not matched to your resources.
If Life asks you for something unreasonable
And you try to bargain it down a little
(Because everyone has to compromise now and then)
Life will not try to negotiate back up.
