I find myself saying "life is tough and then you die" alot. I was thinking today how terrible that is that this is my attitude. Is it really my attitude? I have to think about life and how I really feel. How do you feel about life? Do you have a quote or a saying that sums up your thoughts and feelings about life? Enquiring minds mind to know? :)

I totally agree with you. I have been thinking a lot about this. I find it ridiculous that I can see all the joys this life as to offer. I also believe the purpose of life is to know the creator of this beautiful world. I just dont' understand why I am so drawn to focus on the negative. I hate that about me.

hi CoffeeAnyone, Oh I had days like that.. I have moments where I just hate what is happening in my life and think that I don't deserve such failure or trouble. I sometimes say things like, "My life is full of ....!" if you know what I mean. Life is sometimes tough, actually I find it "always" tough and weird. LOL. But that's life and all I need to be is be the person that God wants me to be. To be strong and fearless of any circumstances that life might bring. Although I have sarcastic phrases about life and situation that I may be in, I still have quote like "Life is beautiful" (yeah, it is still wonderful and pretty..LOL) and "I am loving my life more than ever." Hahaha! As they say, Life is like a box of chocolate, you'll never know what you'll get. In short, I or we must not give up and face what our future will bring. Happy Lotting!

I think making a point to look on the positive is a good way to enjoy life for sure.

Friend, there was a time in my life when I had that very attitude, even worse, I followed it with, "If I'm lucky." And saying that every day scared me enough to do something about it. So my new motto is... "Love and forever are only for as long as they last. Don't move so fast!" I take a deep breath of life and ... enJOY!

I truely have to work on changing my motto. Life is hard but certainly the joys of life is what I should be focused on.

"Life is a sweet game and I love to play it." Life is indeed tough for many of us. But when we have the right attitude, we can find benefits in even the toughest challenges. I like to think about it as a sort of game. The better prepared we are the better chance we have at winning. Like anygame the score may go back and forth, but if we play hard, we will almost always wind up on top.

What you said is true. Life is really hard and really short. Some people may not even see the point of living. But even though life is hard, I try to make the best of it. You can only enjoy life if you would learn to love it even though it's hard. But unfortunately, loving life only adds to our suffering because we know that sooner or later we must die. But still, that doesn't stop me from loving life.

I like saying this: "Try your best, and if it is not there than it's not meant to be there". With that, I try to accept failure after trying hard.

Life is a never ending journey for a homeless traveler. So what you should do is be just do the best you can do in your life. What in life is never a certain things. What certain is the changes itself. So, just be sure you do the best you can do. And never regret. That's the point. Well, Life is never flat.

Well its your attitude that decides your altitude. So a positive attitude towards life help a great deal. True, that life is tough, a lot many problems, things and people that makes it even more tough. But still at a positive side, these are the little things that makes life worth living. What would life be if there is no worries, no problems , no tensions. Wouldn't it be too boring. So all that is needed is to have the guts to face all the phases of life, face all the difficulties and all the problems. [b]Dont ask God for a easy life rather ask him for the strength. Dont say say Why Me..Say Try Me..[/b] [b]When life gives you lemons, make orange juices and leave the world wondering how you did it. [/b] Well this is the positive way of dealing with this tough life.. And even if you die trying atleast its better that you die trying rather than giving up to the circumstances and dieing everyday due to it. Challenge all the problems and one day you'll see that Life's not allthat tough!! Let life realize that you are tougher than it ,so that it gives up on you..!! Have a nice day!! take care :)

life is really really terrible as you have said. and so i am hoping that those who are enjoying their life despite the financial difficulties they are having in life will continue to enjoy their life. as not all people are blessed with happy life. my life is a tough one in a way. and so i hope those others won't have the same fate. if i see some people having tough life and i feel that there is something i can do about it to help them i will surely definitely try to help out so that others who may or can help me in some areas of my life where i am having difficulty hopefully they can help out too.

Yes, when you say about it, life is really tough and then you die, so why should we be born??? it seems more like we are born to die. But when you find your love, your precious ones, success. You just cant leave em and go then life is very a wonderful thing. It depends more on the perspective of each person, there's no true explanation of life in human psychology. Its just how you look at it and i find life is i wouldnt want to let go. ;))
