How come some kids are born into families in war-torn, poverty-stricken countries whereas others are born into comfortable, peaceful societies?
Everyone has something that is wrong in their life. There isn't anyone who's life is totally perfect. Maybe someone lives in a poverty stricken society, but then there's another person who has money, but they lost both their parents when they were 10 in some horrible situation. Like myself, I have a pretty comfortable life, two parents that are usually okay people, but I have SA, no friends, and random other problems. It's mostly about how you handle the negative, bad stuff in your life.
How come some people are born disabled and others are not? Same thing as I said above.
How come some men are 6'7" and others are 5'3"? same thing.
How come some women are gorgeous and others are hideous? Genetics, but being gorgeous/hideous are socially constructed ideas.
How come some people are popular and others are not? Popular people's lives aren't perfect either. They might be popular, but maybe they are a drug addict or drink to much and a bum. Like this one kid, he was one of the most popular people I have ever seen, everyone loved him for the most part, but he was secretly depressed apparently, and he died from drugs. Most popular people enjoy being around others, obviously, they have a different way of handling things I suppose.
How come some people are funny whereas others are lame? No one is lame, they are only lame if they make themselves that way. Like me, I can be really lame, but it's my own fault because I don't just act myself a lot of times, because of SA. Everyone can usually be funny if they act like themselves.
How come some people are world-renowned scientific geniuses and others are born mentally retarded? I think this is mostly genetics/random type of thing, honestly.
How come some people have it together and others do not? Maybe because those people that don't, aren't trying.
How come some people have talents and other have nothing? Maybe it's genetic or random, or maybe it just has to do with trying really hard at something.
How come some people become legends and others fade to black? That mostly has to do with society. Like, what's cool and what's not. What's popular, who's popular.
How come some people are happy and others are miserable? I think it's probably up to most people to either be happy or miserable. It's easier to be miserable than happy a lot of times, because there's so much to be miserable about.
shyness is nice, and shyness can stop you from doing all the things in life you'd like to.
