Not every time. You cannot just sit back and take whatever comes to you. If do so, it is as well as death. Don't get me wrong. It's not death. Just a kind of. But there is no point in living as so. Life is about everything else but death.
If something that you wish and you deserve is not coming. Move your legs. Walk to it. It may try to runway. Chase it down.
Be a little selfish. For yourself. For your loved ones. And then for others. It's good. May be bad. Life is a boolean. Good or bad. True or false. Truth or lie. Myth or fact.
Everything in life depends on each other.
