That's the way life is.
The origin of this expression is unknown but it has been in use since at least the 1950s. It is a variant on the expression "such is life".
"Such is life" appears to have originated in the 18th century. For example, Joseph Baretti's A Grammar of the Italian Language (1762) translates "Cosi va'l mondo!" as "Such is life". The expression is also mirrored in French as "C'est la vie" ("that's life").
