Random Thoughts: Life ain't a courtroom

When something bitter happens between me and another person, I say to myself "Life is not a courtroom."  Until today, I could interpret this in only one way: there is no point in finding out whose fault it is.  If a relationship has a problem it's the problem of everyone involved in the relationship.  There's no point in isolating one person and blaming them.

Today, as I was thinking about it I found a different interpretation of the same phrase.  A courtroom is a place where judgments are given in a "fair" way.  At least, they make an effort to be fair when they try and judge.  However, life is not like that.  People would judge without no or very little trial and analysis.
