Life is Hard, But it Still Has to be Lived

Every philosophy—the radical ones, the conventional ones, the pessimistic ones, the cynical ones, the optimistic ones, the realist ones, the fatalistic ones, the mystical ones, the scientific ones–must be lived out in a world where hardships have to be faced.

No one has the luxury of saying “That sounds good, but life is hard,” as if it exempts them from the burden of action and responsibility.

All must act.

All must take responsibility for the actions they choose.

So whatever you do, take the time to develop a good philosophy and make the time to live your best life. Life is hard no matter what your philosophy is. So don’t waste time using the existence of problems as an excuse to avoid critical thinking and creative living.
