i remember when i was younger and life didn't seem this hard, but as i have looked around in todays world it just seems like things have gotten a little bit harder and its not for the weak of heart...i mean it just seems like people are all out for themselves and you can't really catch a break in anything and its so hard to get a start in todays world because honestly its hard to get a job now days, because of how hard things are...so does it seem like life is getting harder as time goes on or is it just because i am growing up? thanks for taking the time out of your day to read my discussion and i hope that you will reply...i really hope that you all had a great day and that your night is good as well, again thanks for taking the time to read my discussion.

I just think people know a little more than they used to, and it creates an attitude of "the grass is always greener" basically i think life is easier for many, harder for some. but on the whole, everyone likes to moan and complain about what they do or dont have. life's not necessarily harder, people are just more vocal!

i agree that people are more vocal than they use to be, because use to i wouldn't hear any complaints or if any not many but now i hear them all the time, thanks for taking the time to reply!

If you can say that life is getting harder as time goes on, you can also admit that whatever the difficulties we have now would be more tolerable compared to what problems may come up in the future. If one admits that and tries to foresee what needs to be done to avoid something really difficult in the future, what may be difficult for others in the long run might still be tolerable for those who prepared for them. Indeed, life is getting harder which means we just have to work better to manage the things that comes along our way.
