Life is always going to be hard. Thats just a fact, life is a war and wars are never won easily. In this war you'll fight many battles and not all of those battles you will win, at one point or another you're going to lose and suffer casualties but the outcome of just one battle doesn't determine the outcome of the war. And perhaps right now you may be in an especially treacherous battle, you might be stuck in a trench with bullets flying and bombs exploding all around you but remember that you're a soldier and even if all the odds are against you victory can still be yours if you continue to fight in your darkest hour.
