Its easy to say that when a problem comes into your life you can always stand up but its not easy to do. Its not easy to stand up when you stumble in a very complicated problem but i am expressed to those individuals who can still continue fighting even how hard and worse the problem may get. They truly inspires me to keep fighting to all problems i am currently experiencing thats why i put the pengiun as my avatar because it is me.

just one in your discussions, i pointed out i feel sad looking at your penguin stumbling down. i haven't seen the good point in your avatar. yep. it's true. look at the penguin, he stumbles many times but he stands up after each fall, right? now, i see your point clearly. it's inspiring, huh? and cute, too. well, i had been through a lot. but i kept my faith up and i always look at the good sides of life. there are times when you think i never had problems at all because i always try to be happy. but i do. i stumbled many times and just like your penguin,i stood up again many times... and everytime i stand up, i am a stronger person than before. i have learned from the past and so, less fall for me after sometime. stumbling down is a learning process. it's up for the individual to learn the things in life and remember.

I think that we have all come across things in our lives that have caused us to stumble. I know that I have come across many of them. There are times when I have fallen flat on my face and standing back up was not easy, but it is something that must be done. I don't know if you know of the song "Stand Back Up" by Sugarland, but this is one that I sing at karaoke that I can really relate to. It sounds like a song you might also relate to. I've included just a few of the lyrics for you; Go ahead and take your best shot, Let 'er rip, give it all you've got, I'm laid out on the floor, but I've been here before, Yeah, I may stumble, yeah I might fall, Only human aren't we all? I might lose my way, but hear me when I say... I will stand back up, You'll know just the moment when I've had enough, Sometimes I'm afraid, and I don't feel that tough, But I'll stand back up...

Hey J3rvic: I think I have stumbled more times then I can count or even care to remember. Stumbling is a part of life. Everyone and I mean everyone makes mistakes - some are just in denial and don't choose to admit. Nevertheless, the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. There will always be ups and downs. There will always be stumbling blocks. Falling is a part of life. Always remember that tomorrow is another day. The MOST IMPORTANT THING TO DO IS TO """"LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES"""" don't make the same mistakes over and over. Learn from them and grow from them. If we didn't have any bad times we couldn't appreciate the good ones. Best of luck to you and keep your eyes on your goals. Don't let anyone or anything distract you. Best!

Thank you for your response, i know that there are some things that will not turn out as we expect it and sometimes it is the reason why many of us give up but it is also the things that could make us stronger as we travel in our life. "Learn form your mistakes" i always hear that and it is true, i am learning from my mistakes and it is the one that keeps me stronger so that when the same thing happens i will know that i was able to handle it.

hi, thats great that you are fighting your problems away. May be its not easy to stand certain problem, but how you react to your problems makes you grow as a person, makes you confident about yourself, gives you a picture of how strong you are and then you will start appreciating yourself from how strong u are. And if your are facing any situation that itself means that you have the courage to deal with it .. All the very best in your life... you wil be called winner only if you can fight the odds out of ur life... and everybody has 100% strength to be winner.

Thanks for your inspriring thoughts. Its true that everybody has a strength to be a winner but some people doesnt take the risk, they just stumle and fall and never stood up again. Standing up when you fall down is a sign of being courageous (for accepting the truth of stumbling) and strong (to learn for thos mistakes and continue moving on).

i have read a a line from a list of great quotes, it stated that: "the measure of a man's greatness is how smiles at his glory but it is how he stands at his fall." there will always be problems in life and as much as we don't want them, sometimes it just keep getting worse, but we just have to deal with them, why? becasue if we don't, we are only going to screw up our own life, and we're gonna be miserable about it. i think that we should find a way to appreciate things more even if there are problems on the way, in this manner, we are able to offset the degree of hardship and we are able to breathe and feel better for ourselves.

Stumbling in life is part of living. However, we all have to get up and try again. Good luck on your journey through life.

Problems are part of life. If there was no problems then on one would have developed, invented/ or did any things. There is always a solution for every problems. Most of the porblems to be pricise every problem is created by us. We are trying to make our life better but day by day we are creating the problems. It all depends on us humans, if we show some pity,forgiveness,chance understand for the others who think they r in trouble then each and ever person will be happy. by this we will have no problems. live and let live makes a good sense

Yeah, It is not easy to stand up. Anyway, keep trying to get up, stand up and you'll noticed that you can start enjoying it. Learning from mistakes will help a lot and it is one of the best way to solve problems in life. One day, the penguin should know how to balance her body and start learning other types of falling... :D (where did you get the avatar? its cute!)
