Life is not always a piece of cake, sweet and soft. Life is hard, yet there are many ways to live it in a better way. Everybody wants a good life, and the definition of a good life for everyone is different. For some people, a good life is to have a good meal three times a day and live with a roof over their heads. For others, it is about living in a big house with a lot of money in a bank account.
So, whatever the definition of a good life is for anybody, the most common thing among them is that everybody wants a stress-free life. Everyone wants to achieve their goals without struggling. But unfortunately, life comes up with so many hurdles. A person rarely achieves all he wants in a short time without struggling for it. Yes, life is hard as you have to struggle for your dreams to come true. Everyone experiences a hard time in their lives, like the death of their loved ones, striving for a job, or losing a job, etc.
How life is hard
Life is hard- your job is not that easy as you foresee it. The boss is not always a nice person. There are many challenges that you must cop up. Your workmates are sometimes a pain for you. Your salary may not be enough as you deserve. You will not always meet a nice person in your place.
Life is hard- you may not be able to marry the love of your life, or if you married the right person, his/her nature might not be compatible with yours. Your kids might not be ideal. Many other such things make life harder.
It doesn’t mean that you don’t need a break. It’s not that you are not right to feel the way that you think. It is a tough time for you. And at that time, you feel that it’s all very perplexing and just too tough. But it’s not that you give up; it the time to work even more hard. You’ve done all that you could in your life, whether at work or home. But things don’t work out as the way you had planned things or hoped. You feel that things have gone wrong, and you are not able to understand things how or why at that moment.
But that’s okay. It’s normal. This is all about being a human. Life is all about it. Life is hard. Accept that.
Once you realize that, you will feel better about your situation. Then you won’t think that all bad things happen to you and you will realize that this is common to every human being this is the part of life. You will no longer beat yourself up about how bad things are or how you are not doing so well in one area or another. You will realize that you make mistakes just like humans, and you are only human, you can do nothing about things that already happen. You are not perfect, just like everybody else.
But don’t stop there. Accepting that life is hard does not mean giving up on every situation and going with the flow. This story has two sides. As every coin has two sides on the one side of the coin, the words “life is hard” emblazoned, but when you turn that coin over, you will five minimal but powerful words. That says
“you can make it better”
How to make life better

“If life hands you lemons, make lemonade.”
All you have to do is accept that life is hard, and the only thing you can do is make it better with the right decision and attitude. You have the power to make things better; all you need is finding the ability to go through these hard times.
You can make things better by becoming a responsible employee so that you worth getting more responsibilities and trust from the other side. If you find things troubling you at your workplace, find a positive way out of it. You will get all you deserve in the end
You can make it better- by accepting that every kid is unique; all you have to do is raise your child better. Make your home a happy place, be a good wife, or a husband that can understand each other and stand along with you in every hard time.
The only thing you have to control is yourself. You cannot change people or society or a place. All you can do is change yourself according to the circumstances. If you feel that your partner is not as ideal as you thought, you can become a perfect partner. Accept the changes in your spouse and respect his/her choices. You can make your life better in that way. Many other things in life are against our thoughts or expectations, but it all about how we are going to accept these things.
Hard time in life is different for different people. It is not easy to cop up with hard times in life. But as time goes, things that do not break us in a hard time makes us stronger. Going through so many things helps us build a character, strengthening us more for the next time whenever we go through any hardship.
There is a point in your life where you think that it’s the hardest time in life, and you are not ready to bear the consequences of it, but once you go through all this, you will realize that it not that difficult.

Don’t lose hope and find the way out of the darkness. Live, love, and laugh. Do the things that make you happy, love others, and get loved back from others. Life is still hard but make it purposeful and meaningful.
