25 Inspirational Quotes For When You Struggle With Everyday Life
Quotes, Self

Life is beautiful but not always easy. It has problems too, and the challenge lies in facing them with courage, letting the beauty of life act like a balm, which makes the pain bearable, during trying times, by providing hope

Happiness and sorrow, victory and defeat, and day and night are the two sides of the coin. Similarly, life is full of moments of joy, pleasure, success, and comfort punctuated by misery, defeat, failure, and problems.

There is no human being on Earth — strong, powerful, wise, or rich — who has not experienced struggle, suffering, or failure.

No doubt, life is beautiful and every moment — a celebration of being alive, but one should be always ready to face adversity and challenges. A person who has not encountered difficulties in life can never achieve success.

Difficulties test the courage, patience, perseverance, and true character of a human being, making them strong and ready to face the challenges of life with equanimity. There is no doubt that there can be no gain without pain.

Thus, life is and should not be just a bed of roses; thorns are also a part of it and should be accepted by us just as we accept the beautiful side of life.

The thorns remind one of how success and happiness can be evasive and thus, not to feel disappointed and disheartened, but remember that the pain of thorns is short-lived and the beauty of life would soon overcome the prick of thorns.
