No matter who you are, your life will be filled with struggle. Amirite? So then, a recent train of thought that I can't get off my mind is this: if struggle is an absolute part of our lives, why do we label it a "bad" thing? Surely it serves a purpose, right? And let's be real, how many high achievers do you know that haven't struggled? Is it possible that struggle is actually *the* key ingredient in excellence? And if so, maybe we should stop avoiding it.
