That's Why I Believe In Reincarnation

A few years ago I was chatting with a group of friends about how unlucky we are to be born in Egypt, and to be titled Egyptians/Arab/Muslims. The conversation was more about having fun and wasn't at all depressing or anything, yet it took us to a more interesting topic:

Is it fair to be judged when you only had the chance to live a single life under a certain set of circumstances?

If you're born to a family of drug traffickers and all your life you've been taught to be violent and evil, will you be judged in the afterlife court the same way as another person who was born to a family that did everything to raise him/her as a good, loving, one?

I'm trying to be a good person and sometimes it's a hard struggle to do the right thing, but I think I do it most of the time. However, I find it way more difficult for some people to do the right thing, and I can totally justify why it's so hard for them based on my knowledge of the life they were born to live.

Some people I've met were subjects to life changing events that made them different persons, good or bad. The change was very big, similar to the character development of Jamie Lannister in Game Of Thrones where he turned from pure evil to being more honorable.

Those people were given the chance to show a different side of their soul, but not many of us are given that chance. That's why I personally started to believe in re-incarnation; I believe that we live multiple lives before we are judged in the end, that we're judged for all of those lives not just one.

I hope I haven't done major bad stuff in my life as a powerful politician, or if I have done so bad, I wish I was so good in my life as a simple farmer that I'll be forgiven for the other life.
