Many people think that life becomes more difficult as we get older. But I believe, it entirely depends on our attitude that how we perceive life. There are different stages of life and all are full of hardships. The nature of difficulties in life may vary from time to time. Life is all about facing difficulties as we learn to grow amid challenging circumstances. As long as we live life with a positive attitude, we can fetch the best out of it.
During the initial stage of life, we have less responsibilities and more enjoyment. But we learn basic things like crawling and walking with the support of our parents. As life moves forward we get the pressure to perform well in studies but we also get the pleasure to enjoy with our friends. Problems related to career, marriage etc. start manifesting in adulthood. The level of needs and responsibilities increases with the increase in age. While facing problems at different stages of life, we realise our true potential and get the power to win over such obstacles by acquiring skills, knowledge, and wisdom.
Life certainly becomes tougher in older age as far as physical strength is concerned. The elderly indeed have certain health issues with low level of energy. However, some aspects of life may be simplified with age as we are left with limited duties and responsibilities to fulfil. We get more time to spend with our family and friends. Therefore, in a way life becomes easier in old age as we start accepting life with an open mind set.
To sum up, though life is difficult and full of ups and downs, it is still beautiful. Difficulties prevail throughout various stages of life, but it entirely depends on people how we handle them to lead a better life. By inculcating habit of saving and maintaining a healthy life style, we can make our life enjoyable. So, we can say that different stages of life have their own pro and cons.
