Is there a storm-free life?

Why do most of the people claims that they don't have a problem but in reality they do have? They're trying to impose a so-called perfect life. But is that kind of life existing in reality? Some quoted it as storm-free life. Free of any worries and fears or doubts or anything that would damaged us and make us feel bad. Like every day is a celebration, or Christmas. Or Birthday. Like you don't need to worry what to eat the following day than other people are worrying about. And you don't needt to worry where to get money as you spend your money lavishly and such. I kinda hate it but that's sometimes awkward. I'm pretty much sure they don't have a storm-free life. they must have been worrying at some point in a day or they may have a problem ahead. Do you have a storm-free life? Tell me about it and how you handle your storms in life like problems; if ever it isn't a storm-free. If you're going to ask me; I don't have a storm-free life. I have a storm-proof life.

There's no such thing as storm-free life. Everyone of us goes through hardships and challenges in life. Maybe those people who claim that they have this storm-free life are just being denial. They cannot accept the fact that life is not at all perfect. All of us have different issues in life. Some are just really great in pretending that nothing's wrong. And there are also some who recognize problems and they just know how to deal with it gracefully.

I strongly agree to you. Most of the times either ignoring problems without finding solutions keeps on making them that disillusion of a "storm-free" life or they're just hiding something from everyone that they should never know. What's sad is most of the time, either we are aware or not, it is also influencing other families to do the same since they find it also another way of breaking free from the sadness of their problems.

My family likes to think they have a storm-free life which is really a problem when dealing with denial of big issues. I wish they would be more aware of the problems, and bring them to the surface so it didn't seem like it was taboo to talk about them. I think sometimes if you don't keep up with a person, or not a strong friend, you might say your life is just 'fine' because it would take too much time to catch up. Some people are like an open book, others are closed and like to stay that way.

The reason that I have share this topic is because some claims that they do have a perfect life so far; that they're contented and they're not experiencing any difficulties as much as others have. They tend to compare their lives sometimes and they're pretty much arrogant at some times when you ask them how do you handle a situation, they would stray you from the topic. Most of them are the richer people. How do they live a life without worries if like anytime God may take everything away from them? It should be a "storm-proof" life and not a "storm-free" life, right?

I think that many people out there are just rather happily living in denial when you think about it. We got problems in our lives, each and every day. Whether it be not having enough money, some dispute with family or friends, or whatever. It is just that rather some of us do tend to have far fewer problems than others, but that does not say that every day is rather smooth sailing. I'd be rather kind of worried if my life was devoid of any problems and there was nothing really be wrong. Because as they say, there is always some kind of calm before the storm. Life might not seem all that hard. I think really, just juggling a lot of things that I'm doing even on the best days can be a huge problem and really can allow me creativity to be really dragged to the highest levels.

I suppose some people see it as a sign of weakness to let it be known that they have any problems. They like people to think they have a storm-free life.

i don't think there will ever be a storm free life. you can pretend to have but you just fooling your self or just in a state of denial. honestly, i feel good whenever i am thinking that my life is free of problems. yes for awhile in can be but at one moment in your life, problems will come and will stay. but those moments are the most treasured ones accept it or not. and like trees that was blown by a strong wind after a storm, we also love to see the sunshine and stand still after the great storm. storms in our life spice up our existence making us a better and stronger individual.
