Life isn’t easy.
As much as we like to pretend that there’s some simple solution to everything, there really isn’t.
Unpleasant things happen to us, or we make bad decisions, or things just get too complicated for us to cope with.
Sometimes, life can be tough.
And you might think that’s not true for a writer. After all, we have it easy, don’t we?
Don’t we spend all day sitting around, making up fantasies in our heads? Aren’t we lucky to do what we love for a living? Shouldn’t we be grateful for what we have?
Yes and no.
Most writers don’t spend all their time writing. I know I don’t.
I’m a student in my final year of a degree. I work one day a week in an HR office. I run a wrestling blog. And I write for this blog.
I wear a lot of hats and juggle a lot of responsibilities. And it’s not easy to cope with them all.
Mind you, I am grateful for the good things I have.
I’m healthy. I have a loving family. I’m doing a degree that I care about. I have wonderful friends. I have so many good things.
But that doesn’t mean that things don’t get difficult sometimes. And right now, I am struggling with life.
Am I giving up? No. Of course not. Things won’t always be hard. They will get better in time.
But at the moment, things aren’t easy. And I can only do my best.
