How do we live up with our life? How do we face every struggles and problems? Do we act to it as if its the end of the world for us? Or accept it positively?

Having a positive outlook on life not only helps to improve our overall mental and physical health, but it makes life a lot easier. It's like the old saying about seeing the glass either half full or half empty. You can look at our everyday struggles as either obstacles or opportunities to grow. Sometimes what may seem like the wrong path in life is just the beginning of a new and better one. Now this is the way I try to think about life but it can be difficult to keep that positive frame of mind when facing a problem or when you are hurting inside. I think that people tend to focus on problems like it's the end of the world because they feel helpless and think that without happiness life is meaningless. But the meaning of life, for me at least, is not necessarily to be happy but to enjoy each moment as if it were the last. Happiness is just a state of mind and is very subjective. It's easy to get through the bad times when you remind yourself that there is still time for happiness if you choose to be.
