Things in life are not always easy. Man, I wish they were though. We all have troubles that we face in life that we just have to overcome. We might have to fight a little harder but usually in the end it can turn out for the better. There are always going to be obstacles in our way but it's how we deal with them that matters in the end.
For example, growing up with an alcoholic mother was not easy for me. I honestly completely hated it. If I could change that aspect of my mother I would still do so today because she would probably still be alive if she hadn't been plagued with alcoholism. I loved my mother but hated her when she was drunk. While my childhood was awful at times due to growing up with an alcoholic mother it did impact my life for the better as well.
My mother's actions showed me what not to do in life. Don't get drunk in front of your children. It's not good for you and not good for them. What if they hurt themselves and you're too impaired to help? Try to think of your children first and not your own selfish needs. Man, I sure do that. I can barely think about buying myself something because I can think of a million things that I'd rather buy for my kids. My husband has to force me to sometimes because I often refuse.
