Life Is Unfair

I've heard this phrase many times, especially when things in my life are going awry. I don't like hearing that phrase no matter how true it is because it doesn't help me in any way in solving my problem. I wish people would try to listen first before talking.
I think it's one of those "filler" phrases that people use when they don't know what to say. It's also a true statement tough because sometimes life really isn't fair. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't help mitigate the result of this unfairness that the person is experiencing. It also doesn't mean that we shouldn't look for ways to correct the unfairness so it doesn't continue in the future.
I won't say the details as it is a family matter. One of my relatives has been saying this and that about me that were not true. I told my aunt about it because I think she could be a good arbiter. Then I got that comment from her without even finishing what I need to say.
Hmm, what's that saying....life sucks, and then you die. Kidding...but seriously, I would take a phrase like that with a grain of salt. People just say stuff like that when they don't really want to talk about an issue, or just out of a lack of anything else to say. In your case, it sounds like your aunt didn't want to talk about it and used it as way to squash the subject.
