Fair Play

I've always been very concerned with everything having to be fair, ever since I was a little a kid. To feel comfortable and at peace, I need to know that people in my life put an equal amount of effort and energy into our relationships, I like to know that if I did something for someone I can count on them and expect the same treatment back... It's not because I like taking or like it more than giving, but because I was born with a fairness obsession. See, even I myself have no problem admitting it. It's not the easiest quality to live with, and maybe it's not something people should aspire for or value, but I'm thankful I have it, because at the end of the day, what matters is that I know my conscious is clear.


  1. A clear conscious is a very good thing! Amazing how some people have none.

  2. My dad told me this: "In everything you do, always ask this question... is it fair to all concerned?"

  3. Very nice post today, darling...

    I am thankful for fairness too.
