I used to think it was about being right. Recently I thought it was about being fair. I no longer have a clue.

Maybe Butterflypalm is right.

Do you think it might be different for each person at different times in their lives, or that there is only one answer that fits everyone at all times?

Gotta be one answer. It's too hard the other way.

Whose to say it's about anything? The existentialists would say life has no meaning other than whatever you care to give it to make it bearable.
I would say knowledge and wisdom.

Sorry, probably wasn't being clear. I mean what is life about, as far as dealing with others? Everyone will have an answer as far as their personal meaning/direction of life itself.

I really have no idea what I'm talking about.

My life is about paying bills. Thankfully, martial arts isn't one of them.

Paying bills......is that a metaphor, too? Is it wrong to assume receiving something for these "payments"?

This is why life is hard. Conundrum.
