Do you think that some people are born with better cards in the grand scheme of things?
As long as see life from a "good luck" or "bad luck" point of view...it will never make any sense. Look at life from Soul's point of view, which mean's we're Soul having human experience at this time (and this is the whole truth of who we really are!!!). All Soul's choose different challenges, that's why some look to have incredible good things happen to them and other's seem to "luck out". The seemingly unlucky ones are learning great Soul lessons which will enable them to become stronger, kinder, and gain more wisdom....in the long run. I know this doesn't make things easier for anyone, but at least you'll be left with a sense of what's really going on.... there is a Divine order in all of this.
Always look at life from Soul's point of view...if you don't, it will always seem like you're getting the "short end of the stick".....!
