Life is one hell of a doozy. Throwing punches with your back turned kinda vibe. That's not cool, even in fairytale land. What happened to the manuals and the how-to books on what to do for every single aspect and event in your life?
They don't exist.
Lessons come from experience. Some are hard, others easy, and just a few of those lessons are a breeze. It doesn't always have to be a struggle, but at times it is. Coming to grips with this acknowledgment is part 1 of this thing called life. Perhaps it's easier said than done, but we all know that just ain't the case.
Not everyone's struggle is the same, and that's a simple and true fact. If we try to make a better effort at understanding this we might be able to help another in need.
