As I grow older I discover that life is not a bed of roses. We all have our share of trials, struggle and pains that we all have to learn to either live with or overcome. We hope someone will always be there to save us from fight. Soon I realize that no one can really pick me and save me but myself. The only friends I have are my two hands and learning to deal with difficulties in life is a skill that needs to be mastered to survive.
One of the biggest lessons that I have learned in this life is how futile it is to fight inevitability. Life is change; if we stop changing, we stop growing. Life is never going to go exactly the way that you want it to. Something is always waiting to pop up and bite you. The more that you attempt to make life go your way the more that it won't. Your life will be so much more peaceful and smooth if you just learn to stop swimming upstream.
