Life's Toughest Fight

When asked about your life's toughest fight, what would it be?

Is it about your fiercest opponent? Is it your unexpected defeat? Or your victorious winning?

When we're punched hard by struggles, it's easy to be defeated. It gets harder to rise up and give our best counter punch. Life's even harder to get up when we're knocked out. We lose and do not even shout out. That's the reality of life, we learn not just from our greatest winning, but also our worst defeat.

However, at times our toughest fight comes inherent; from within. It could be the most challenging to be defeated. It's the internal conflict. It's about our lower emotions that fight us inwardly.

Our tendencies for resentment, grudge and rage are our worst enemy, and oftentimes the hardest to fight. It could be our toughest battle. We win some or we lose some.

But, what if our worst enemy is just ourselves. That we couldn't get out from our worst tendencies, our conflicting personalities, and our lower emotions. After all, it may be just us. How could we escape? How could we cope? How could we win the battle; our internal fight and greatest struggle.

We may lose some fights, but the toughest fight gives us the courage to keep on fighting, to keep on moving, even when we're struggling and not even close to winning.

In the end, all our emotions are valid. It may not be all good, but we recognize the bad and the worst contributes to the realization of our true essence of living. And we continue to live and hope for a triumphant winning.
