To live our life better we must struggles
My life my struggles
Welcome to my article (4), My life my struggles;
Dear readers, we invite you to read, “My life my struggles” article, and then compare my life struggles with somebody else struggles, or with your own struggles, if you feel that you are struggling during your life and you want company, but try to do all this with a smile, even if you are feeling run down sometimes.
This life story is another article of a simple man life story, that is being told from the old man himself and that old man is me. So, let me tell you my life story starting with the memories of my life, whether these life memories are happy happenings or sad ones, today they will not make much difference, since they have happened in the past. So, let me talk about the struggles of my life, since life may be said that is a beautiful struggle; (You see, we need to think that life is a beautiful struggle, even when there are times when it hurts, because that is the only way to enjoy life) I am saying this because I feel that I have been struggling all my life, in fact, I feel that I am struggling even now, while I am writing my life memories, so, let us talk about my life struggles
Our lives are full of struggles
My beautiful life struggles
Dear readers, let me tell you that these are the struggles of life of an old man, who had to struggle his entire life, because this must have been his destiny, and even now is struggling in order to live his life in full; one can describe him as a born struggler, who kept battling on during his entire life, and continues to struggle even now.
So, as it often happens to the best of us, sometimes he won his battles and sometimes he lost them. And although when he had a tough battle a scar or mark was left on him for life, he never thought to surrender to the adverse elements that life brought to him; but he kept battling on his whole life from his very tender age onward. And no matter how hard it became for himself he kept struggling on, to conquer those negative elements which can make life miserable, as we know from our own life experiences.
He had to do it all by himself; because there is no other way that a person can live his life, but one has got to keep fighting on and never give up, no matter how hard it becomes during one’s life, starting from the very beginning when we are born.
And this is what I’d like to talk about, which is going to be never the less the very same story of my life.
So, looking at what life brings us during our life, I must say that, it seems to me that we are born to struggle, to find the best way to live our lives. since there are no other ways available to us, so, we must look after ourselves the best way we can.
But I would like to point out to you, that there are people in the world today, who believe that we are born to suffer, as if suffering is necessary for living our lives in full. But I would not agree with them on this suffering part, because I don’t believe for a single moment that we are born to suffer. The reasoning is that if we believe that we are born to suffer, then, when something goes wrong that makes me suffer, I would have to accept suffering as it was, and I would do nothing to improve my situation. To me this situation is absurd, therefore, I prefer to believe that it is always possible to do something to improve my situation, even if is going to make me struggle hard for a long time.
So, let us think about what we have said, because we want to discuss it a bit more, about this subject of struggling or suffering. Since we want to convince you including ourselves, that what we believe about our life struggle is correct; so, we hope you do not mind following what we have to say next; because we want to explain struggling and suffering for comparison sake.
So, let us talk about this struggling or suffering, for comparison sake, because we want to see if what we have said makes sense. So, let us make this observation; we must say that generally speaking, any parents would wish from the bottom of their hearts that their children will have an easy and happy life to live.
And if we were to ask any parent, or would be future parents: if they would like to have children, knowing in advance that their children must suffer during their life time, we are sure that they would never agree to have children under such conditions. You see, there is no point to have children, if they must suffer: We want to have children only if they can live their life better than our own lives, or at least equal to our ways of life.
Having said that now we want to explore the reasons why people think that we are born to suffer; we must say that we don’t know exactly how and why, this belief that we are born to suffer came about, even though we see the reasons why we must struggle during our lives, but let us try to think and explain the suffering part.
We have reasons to believe, that this suffering beliefs is part of some religious beliefs or cults, because for religious leaders telling people that life is a struggle is not enough. Because they want to control us by scaring us, and religions are good at scaring and reassuring us; therefore, religious leaders try to scare us somehow, so that, we would do what we have been told to do. We are saying this because it is a well-known fact that religious people have had some influence in these suffering beliefs, you see, for a long time they have preached and believed that the flesh had to suffer, and only through suffering the soul would become holy in the eyes of God. Here we want to ask this; is it necessary that the body must suffer, for the soul to become worthy in the eyes of God? Personally, I do not see the need for the body to suffer, so, religious people have a mistaken view about this suffering of the body.
Life is not meant to be easy
Let us talk about the religious mistaken views
Anyhow, we believe that the belief that we are born to suffer, it has come from religious beliefs. Now, to explain that, we need to state our own religious beliefs, which are as follow; we believe that we don’t see the need for the flesh to suffer, for our soul to become holy in the eyes of God. Therefore, we believe that religious people have made a mistake, when they say that we are born to suffer. We cannot believe that we are born to suffer, and therefore, their beliefs about suffering are wrong, and we can back it up with the following explanation.
They are wrong, because if you are a believer and you believe in God; how could you ever think that we are born to suffer? How could you ever think that? Just think about it! How could God Our Heavenly Father, who is the perfect Father in every way do that to us. For what reason should God make us, just to make us suffer?
No! The whole thought of suffering here is absurd, because any good father loves his own children, therefore, he wishes that his own children should live a healthy and happy life. Therefore, God who is the best father above us all, must have made us to be free, so that we could choose our own way of living, and if during our lives there happens to be painful times, we have to rectify it ourselves in our own way, even if this will make us struggle to overcome the suffering part.
Therefore, we are sure that we are not born to suffer, but perhaps we are born free to do whatever comes our way, but sometime we have to struggle to find our own way out, from the problems that we are facing at that particular time; you see, I am struggling even now, while I am trying to explain this subject.
Now I want to tell you, that I understand that life is not easy, except for a few people that are born lucky. Therefore, for those people who think that life is easy, I am pretty sure that they are in the minority; and ether they are the lucky few, which everything has been done for them, or they are fools and they cannot see what life is about.
Indeed, it is a well-known and acknowledged fact of life, that there are several kinds of struggles within our life; you see, even now while I am writing this article, I am struggling to write it the best way I can. We can also add here that as a matter of fact some great man have acknowledged of the existence of these struggles, and the existence of an inner struggle which we feel within ourselves most times.
Now, some of these men have even expressed their views in public, in a direct way or an indirect way. In my life time for instance, ‘The Right Honourable Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Fraser,’ when the public was complaining that life was a struggle for them under his government policies; He used to say to them and I quote; ‘Life is not meant to be easy’.
Therefore, I feel so sure to admit that there are struggles in our lives, even if we don’t want them to be there, and I can assure you that even when we are not struggling, life is not meant to be easy, because, we will always be struggling as something will bother us, one way or another.
Therefore, my own life being just like anybody else, or perhaps worse off in some respect, I would like to tell you to the extent of some very personal details, so that I will be able to show you and prove my point that in order to survive I had to struggle, but that is okay and I accept it.
So, it seems to me that from here onward I am going to tell you ‘The struggles of my life.’ Or perhaps should I say the story of my life; since this is the only issue that I am sure to know better than anybody else, and that there are some personal reasons to tell the story of my life.
Why we tell the story of my life
I would like to tell you the story of my life, just the way that I have lived it; with so many good chances that were partly wasted, because I was unlucky and badly prepared when I was young, so, I wasn’t able to understand fully that they were good chances, and that I could have done something about them. So, here I want to comment about the anguish that those wasted chances brought with them, at the time when they happened and later during my life. So, when I think about the past with all its suffering that I have been through, I believe that I could have lived a better life, if I had been better prepared for it when I was young. And this is the most important aspect that I want to demonstrate here, and if you think that I am lamenting about my own life you are right. Anyhow, one of the reasons for telling you my life story, it is that you can compare this life story to your own life story, or to the story of somebody else and hope it would help, because you will know then that you are not alone struggling, since most times we are all struggling during our lives.
Let me add here other reasons that have made me write this article about my life struggles, even though here I am trying to tell you the story and struggles of my life, I would like to see some benefit flow to my readers, perhaps in the sense of looking at life in a more acceptable way, when things go wrong and they have to struggle; then they may remember my life story and say to themselves, life is hard for me these days; but I am not alone, because lots of other people have struggled during their lives, and they are even struggling these days. Look at this life story that I have just read, which was talking about somebody else life struggles. You see, once you know that you are not the only one struggling in life, and you think about it, everything could look somehow better for you.
I believe that I have said enough in this article about, my life my struggles. So, I want to conclude by saying that I am going to continue to write my life story, with my next article called, an old man story, or something like that depending on what hub pages will accept for a title. See you later in our next article.
