LIFE AND THE STRUGGLE

 

 

https://patrickrealstories.files.wordpress.com/2017/12/maxresdefault-3.jpg?w=710

Every time in life, you have to learn to stand up for yourself. Nobody will finish what you started, except you let them steal it from you.

Just be you. Stay strong. Focus, and don’t let nothing hold you down.

Don’t believe in the concept of the normal because you see everybody do it.

Don’t accept famous traditions because you see everybody practice it.

Just do what your mind whispers to your heart. Then fight and struggle through all difficulties, like it’s going to be your last.

 

The struggles can be in :

Family

          1. Struggles will always be in the way, that’s life, so you have to move through it or your stuck. Missing the beauty isn’t an option if you want to enjoy life. Plus, without hard you will never appreciate the easy

  4. Struggle among animals is a prerequisite for a species to survive. As Darwin first observed & wrote ,only the strongest survive. Challenges,struggles,fights are all part of a natural selection process.Not all that are born will survive.Will all know & understand this.
    So a life without hardship & struggle is a unchallenged existence.
