You will learn that people mean many different things when they talk of a just or fair outcome. For instance, have you gotten what you deserve? Have you been listened to and treated with respect? Have your rights been protected? Have you been unfairly privileged? Were you sufficiently rewarded for your contributions? Did you receive unjust punishment if you broke the law?
