Life and hardships

In my opinion, hardships in life is nothing. It's just another phrase we have to pass thru or get over it in life. It's only a little different from what we expected, a little out of our usual routine and habits. Hardship is tedious, but it's not fearful. Only people who has been through hardships, knows the true essence of life. There might be some saying, hardship is for life, and nothing might even come out of it. They are so wrong. Even if there are no end results after going through hardships, we would have gained a lot during the process. IT's the process that counts, not the result. After one has been through hardships, nothing is going to prove too difficult for them anymore. Even the next difficult phrase ahead seems easy as one has been through it before. UNlike one who has an easy life throughout, give them the next easiest phrase, they will think it's the most difficult phrase in thier life, when others have gone through worst. Life should be easy, like what people are saying, Take it easy. I agree with that phrase but not the meaning behind it. My own understanding of it is, take hardship easy, face it with a smile. It's going through and surviving it, makes us a better person.

Very truely agree with you, Hardships are a part of our life, we tend to go down when such situations arise in life that makes us unhappy and we make such mistakes that we regret afterwords. However the true meaning in living such life as you said we have to just smile and look at things positively and never hurt ourselves for such things because they are part of our life.. When easy things comes we just take it and smile and when there is an easy task which is little difficult to face we find that our hardships. So surviving hardships is the key of living a happy life.

Yes, u are right. Without hardships, we will never know the harsh reality of life. Whatever looks glamorus outside, might be a screen for the struggles within people.

If life were easy all the time, we get complacent. If life were hard all the time, we get disillusioned. Hardship can mold character, but continuous hardship, especially if the latter ones get harder, a person might break down or burn out. Pray the God is merciful to sprinkle the flowers among the thorns and we get to enjoy both. Above all, it may not be hard or easy that counts, but a life that is meaningful regardless of circumstances. I hope yours has been meaningful to you. Hmm....so voting time is here...ever thought of nomination and be like Tin Pei Ling or Nicole Seah? Hehehe

Yes, i agree. Having been through hardships, i will prefer hardships because it makes me a stronger person since it doesn't break me. After one had gone through the tough path in life, everything that comes along seems easy. IT's the opposite when one has an easy life. I need not vote because there's a walkover.

That sounds somewhat masochistic, but I guess you're right. Life is full of hardships, and learning to survive it to handle those situations, is actually what could make live our lifes easier. I often listen the phrase "I passed through this situation, so nothing is difficult for me", and I guess is the truth. We shouldn't avoid hardships, we need to learn to handle it.

Yes, i agree. Hardships are meant to be learned, not avoid it. For things we avoid, they can always come back to haunt us again, so long we don't solve it.

You are right that hardships needed to be taken on our stride. We should make ourselves understand that every phase of life will pass and ups and down are part of our life.

Yes, we have to understand every phrase we are going through, learn from them and the next hardship that comes along will be a lot more easier.

Hardship is a part of life. People will go through it. To some, hardship is like a barrier in life, and they think that hardship has blocked their way in life. To others, it is a phase they have to go through and they have the belief that in the end hardship will result in a happy solution. What do you think, Sanitary?

Yes, i agree with u. Hardship is part of life and no hardship can ever block our way in life because we have many years in front of us to deal with it, via experience. After every hardship, there might not be a happy solution but there's definitely a happy approach to the next hardship in life.

I am always sure that hardship that we experience is never beyond our capability to handle it. With this belief, we keep trying to overcome it, and there we are. We can get what we aim to achieve--being able to leave hardship behind.

Sometimes it is impossible to change some events, I have to face the fact and try to live, to make shift with unpleasant occurrences. I have to see the way through sorrow and pain. One should not completely bow to fate and think that nothing pleasant will happen again, although it is not always possible to influence the events that concern one's life.

Yes, facing up to facts in life is the most difficult things to do. It might be impossible to change certain events, but we can minimise the effects. HOwever when it comes to facing it and live with it, there's nothing we can do much about it.

YEs, u are right. One needs to go through hardships in life in order to appreciate life. It's like the saying, "if that does not break u, it only makes u a stronger person".
