Many people live life carrying out an endless fight with every circumstances they face.  That’s how they were taught. They are in a state of constant agitation, trying to force their will on events which they perceive threatens their sanity or way of life. There is no space in the mind to think about alternative solutions at this point. Consumed with rage and blinded by the illusion that they must be doing the right thing, they carry on throughout life with destructive actions. There is a time and a place to fight depending on the circumstance, but constantly fighting every circumstance that exists is a losing proposition.

A rational person carries out life very different from the person who fights life. A rational person is able to understand circumstances for what they are, nothing more or nothing less than what is presented. That’s how they were taught.  They understand the ebb and flow of various events throughout their lives and adjust accordingly with determination to learn, to move forward with understanding, to be reasonable, to overcome challenges, and to display strength and courage. An understanding person faces life with compassion and the desire to make the best of any situation.

Fighting life or understanding life are two crucial features that contribute to a persons disposition and probable ability to function favorably or unfavorably throughout life. Who’s responsibility is it to manage our own adult life, our children’s future, and our grandchildren’s future, because life will surely become what we have been taught, or what we ignore. We all own the responsibility for our actions and we own the responsibility for being the example that motivates the younger generation to prosper or fail.
