Why is it?  
Why is it that those who deserve things the least seem to get the most? Why are those who cannot conduct themselves as adults, who aren't capable of taking care of themselves, rewarded for their incompetence? Why are those who are the most self centered catered to? How is it that the angst and drama are so attractive?

Flowers, jewels, trips to romantic destinations seem to shower from the heavens for them.

Why are those of us who do for ourselves, who care for others, who are polite and reasonable overlooked? Is it because we *can* stand alone? Because we *don't* need the spotlight, need the drama?

Maybe I need to be more dramatic, more selfish, more vocal...

I think there are a lot of factors, of which you've touched on some as cause and some as effect here (though it's never that easy to compartmentalise behavioral causality). I think it's kind of a reciepe of different factors, which I don't spend much time worrying about. I have enough trouble trying to maintain my own sense of integrity. I think that's true of most independent people.

What you're asking for is some cosmic sense of fairness? In a way isn't that all part and parcel of being able to stand alone, and not needing the spotlight? That we're strong enough not to fold up like a wet tissue?
