The Mental Tax

Life is hard for lots of people. I get it. There are some that have it worst than others. I understand that too. When people say that it could always be more problems than what currently exist is a bit aggravating at times. When people approach what many of us refer to as hard times, the last thing that they want to hear is something hypothetical.

When a person starts to vent and release their frustrations about how difficult it is to survive, they are not doing it so that they can simply be comforted. Most times they are looking for ideas on how to change the situation. We open up to friends and co-workers about our problems with the hopes that they will have something to say that will encourage us to keep moving forward.

The idea that only the strong survive is extremely scary when I really began to think about that. We work so hard thinking of how we will survive that we are exhausted. We lose time because we are consumed with the stress of making it through another day. Those that cannot deal with the pressure of surviving will be swallowed by society.

This is how we get those people who are stuck in the same situations with no chance of ever getting out because they are living in pure insanity. They continue to do the same thing and wait for something different to happen. It is hard work to survive but it is even harder to thrive. So if only the strong survive, then that makes me think that only the strongest will thrive.
