"why is life so cruel to people"
because it's an unpredictable force
not God, but life
life, or nature can't be confined to humanity's definition of cruel.
you make the mistake that life is fair
one of my favourite quotes is this,
"The world doesn't owe you anything, it was here first"
You can't expect the forces of nature, of energy, of physics to bend to an individual.
Life sucks sometimes
life is amazing sometimes
you have no control over what life gives you
but don't for a second feel that it isn't cruel to everyone, life is balanced on a whole, so of 7 billion people, there is gonna be a lot of cruelty.
the only cruelty you can control is how you treat others.
God's existence has nothing to do with it.
don't worry, I understand, I've just been battling a lot of demons recently and found myself asking the same question you posed so I thought I would let someone else know how I viewed the question. Thanks for asking the question.
Life is cruel, those people keep getting up. I wonder if someone bothered by the fact that life is cruel would have that strength? Life is cruel to people that an handle it, those that can't either have an easy life or die.
Because we all star in God's favorite sitcom. We are monkeys pulling pratfalls for his amusement, and our questioning our collective fate is akin to a chimp trying to work a pair of vice-grips.
It is to some and not for others.
God says it's because you're all a**holes and he hates you...
God says he wants 10 EP tokens for answering your question...
Cruelty is an ambiguous and human defined term, we see much of nature as cruel, where it is just a natural process, humans can be cruel to each other certainly. That depends on psychology and not a deity.. forthere is no god. If you happen to be a believer, prove to me god. Just in general ans the answer to your question will become clear.
Oh good, someone rational. Life is not cruel, it is a thinly veiled set of cause and effects laced with a little chaos. But Ill leave you with this and I know you will keep it well. I is better to light a candle then to curse the dark.
The gods do it for a reason, to set these people on the right path. Sometimes it takes blessings, other times it takes pain. Sometimes the pain is a blessing in disguise. Either way, all cruelty in life is for one reason or another.
Sometimes things just go wrong, but most often life is what you make it.
Okay I guess you didn't catch it the first time. I said "Sometimes things just go wrong, but most often life is what you make it."
You have a real hard time not seeing what you want, don't you?
Stop being cheeky, you asked a serious question, do you want serious answers from serious people or do you want garbage from a bunch of jokers. Your call.
I'm a sad little man? I'm not the one asking why the world has to be so cruel. You asked a question and I gave you the best answer there is, you twisted what I said so I corrected you, then you insult me, so I cut you down to size. You brought this on yourself, I'm guessing like many things in your life. Take my advice, best of luck.
through adversity comes strength
