It depends on whose life or at what stage of life that we are in. For those who are wealthy, their life is basically much easier than those who are poor in general. But some rich people have too much relationship or marriage issue, and this might make their life difficult. This is more on social problem. For poor people, they have to struggle more to earn a living. But they can be happy, if they are have a healthy and joyful family. For me, I am leading a moderate life, because I am earning a moderate salary. So, I never over spend but just spend wisely. Therefore, I optimize what I own efficiently.

Life is the mirror of what you think and act. One should stay positive,confident and enthusiastic in meeting all realities of life. It is essential to move with flow of life in the spirit of positive awareness and determination to succeed,under all circumstances. There are many people, you will find around you to share their thoughts,feelings and experiences with you. You need to keep your mind open and soft to keep life moving smoothly. Thanks.

No man is an island is a well known saying.Which means that nobody can live by themselves,everyone depends on someone or the other. Even the sannyasi or renunciant has to depend on the outside world for his existense. For eg, he has to beg for alms from householders inorder to fill his stomach.One can simmplify life if one is ready to sacrifice and give up their desires for material things. We make our lives complicated by going after too many material objects even if we do not need them .By possesing too many things we get unneccessarily attached and involved with them and don`t want to give them up. Then we fear that these things may be stolen from us and we start worrying and then lose our health.Our sages have said simple living and high thinking.If we have a simple and uncomplicated lifesstyle then we can be really happy and free from major worries.Of course small and niggling things can happen here and there but one can always surmount these and carry on living.

Hi friend, I agree with you that Life is so difficult if we live alone. Just imagine if you live without any human being. Who will communicate with you if feel lonely. Besides, it is just a simple example. Therefore, we can conclude that life is not simple.

Hello! Life is what you will want it to be. If you want to see a complex life, where everything is hard and you can not understand the others, then you will see life like that. But if you want to see that life is pretty simple and easy to live, then you will see life as a pretty easy thing. In my opinion, life is easy. It's almost all about having goals and fighting for them. Be it making a friend, meeting a lover or learning a new thing, it is all about having a goal and reaching it. You set your goals, then you try to reach it. Then you can either fail or succeed. Respectfully, Munhozmib.
