Life Is Not a Bed of Roses

Life isn't a bed of roses

Life isn't a bed of roses

A story about life and how it can seem so daunting at times: Life is not a bed of roses, all the time, but the right approach to life can help you create a full and vibrant existence. Comments regarding the "rat race", money, competition between others and morals are all brought into light in this personal entry.

This is my attempt to write something in with my bad English. I haven't given it a title. (Title added by Diana) After reading it, I wonder if do you will understand what I want to say? If yes you do, please do tell me let me know. And the Most importantly thing, please underline my mistakes and suggest corrections. It motivates me to write more.

I feel like my concepts aren't clear. I go haywire. I don't know exactly what I want to say. Why is this so does this happen? Is it because I of lack the practice necessary of to write well writing? This feeling happens with me when I have to am asked to write something suddenly without warning or preparation. Anyway, here is the article is written below ...

Life isn’t a bed of roses. It’s full of ups and downs. It is like an endless ocean and we are sailing in a boat in its amid amid it's vastness. We want to touch the shore but it’s not visible. It’s There is water everywhere. Don’t you think it will would become get hard for us to survive in this lifeless voyage? But we have to do it. There isn’t any other option. We want peace and moksha ??? but it is difficult to find in the hustle and bustle of the city.

People are generally mean and selfish. They want to go ahead keeping their feet on distance from one another. Today’s world is a world of cut-throat competition. People have forgotten their ethics and values. The meaning of success has changed. Money is everything for them the population. People look down upon poor people or people who are of lower in status. They aren’t ready to help others. The fear of lagging behind if he/she becomes superior always frightens them.

A simple human gets receives pressure from everywhere. He has to face the pressures of their family, job, peer group etc. It becomes difficult for them to fight with the life. That’s why those who are mentally weak commit suicide. They aren’t able to fight with themselves. They can’t lie to themselves. They get surrounded with sorrow and failure.

People will have to learn to be optimistic. They need to love themselves before then only others will love them in return. They have to become mentally strong to fight combat with the evils of the society.

We think that life is only difficult for us, but there are others too who are in have it worse conditions than us. We should thank God for whatever He has given to us, and to get more than that one should put own make an effort and improve in own field ourselves rather than doing back biting scratching the backs of others or following the divide and rule concur policy in the office.

School, society and family all contribute to the emotional development of a person. There is a course called, "The Art of Living", that teaches us how we can live a happy life with all despite the problems in our lives. It is becoming very popular. The reason of for its popularity is that that people do get depressed due to the pressure of life and at the same time they have desire want to live their lives to the fullest.

So one will has to understand that all of life's doors are not closed. There is no need to get disappointed because of the failure. They aren’t the only one struggling in this huge sea like world. There are other people also who are also sailing with them in the same boat; trying to reach their destinations.

So it's better be happy and accept every failure with smile on your face and peg it to experience. And in the last Finally, don’t forget your morals values and ethics.

Great Essay
by: Kartik

"They have to become mentally strong to fight combat with the evils of the society."

The essay is really good and inspirational but you would do well to improve your grammar. You must either use combat or fight not both of them together.And if you can please remove the strike-through(s) they are distracting. And you have not got bad English.

by: Ashang hunter

I really appreciate the writer for such lines!
It really encourage a person who face failure or trouble in life.

I hope from now on no matter what may come in life, we should not be dishearten. But we should do our best and keep the remaining things which we cant do for the lord, because he is the one who handle the past present and the future.

life is not the bed of roses
by: rajab khan dir pakistan

This is a famous qoute which expresses the idea that there is no constancy in life. As we know the conditions of life vary from one day to another.

What we have today may not be tomorrow. Life is just like a see-saw one day up next down and the next day may up again. One should not be discouraged about his sorrows and worries but one should face or cope every up downs with great care and behopefull for comming sun shine.

Life is the combination of sorrows and joys.

life is not a bed of roses
by: uzma

life is not a bed of roses. Yes experiences help us in understanding the true picture of the world. Many people have to face pressures of life and due to misunderstandings and misconceptions. Which are actually created not by the individuals but sometimes they are wrongly judged. A person who has a real purpose in life. To be something that the people would appreciate are considered it wrong to have a purpose in life?..To want to be like their ideal...and is it considered that they value money more than emotions... and do their loved ones get so shocked knowing the truth...I do not believe in showing your inner feelings or emotions to the world if the person does not feel it...every one has a purpose in life but if the other person misjudges you, I do not believe on making people understand..its the time and feelings which are a true ................

Wonderful job. No body is perfect in everything. We all have our ups and downs, like life.

You definitely convey the right meaning of life and your transitions are amazing. The rest will flow, if you keep pushing yourself.

Keep it up.

so so brilliant!
by: sajid javed

man, I am also from pakistan and I was searching about some points related to lifes ups and downs and trust me I have searched so much but in reality people speak so cooly and no one excepts his/her mistakes.
I think the one who accepts his mistakes is the best person, as I thing "There is no religion higher than truth".
I liked the way of ur expressions and emotions.
Trust me when I was reading ur expressions I was weaping by heart and I am thankful for ur help. I got what I wanted and I Pray to Allah Almighty to make all of us to think the same as you.

yours well wisher

Wonderful Story...
by: Diana Tower


Please believe me when I say that you do not have "bad English". You are learning English and it is good. Yes, you make some mistakes but the more you practice the more your will learn.

It was a pleasure reading your story. I totally understand what you are talking about. You speak about life, the good times and the bad. Things are not always perfect in life, but we must make the most of it and stay positive.

I'd like you to apply this point of view to your English. Sure, there are some ups and downs (mistakes) but just smile and push onward. Keep going and never give up. You are a talented writer and I am looking forward to reading your next story!

All the best,
Diana Tower
