ve been saying this for more years than I care to remember. Everybody has some kind of limitation(s), to one extent or another, to cope with. They can be emotional, psychological, physical, sexual, intellectual, financial or geographical and God love em, but some folk have far more than others to put up with, but, put up with it they damn well do, and in many cases, admirably so! However, if, within the parameters those constraints/limitations impose upon us, we strive to do our best, when called upon to do so, in any endeavour of consequence, then we have gloriously celebrated our potential as a human being.
There is much to be said for being prepared to, push, sensibly, at our limitations, and much to be said for knowing when to stop pushing.
m afraid I would consider it extremely short sighted and tunnel visioned, for anyone one capable of engaging in serious discourse on these forums, not to be aware, that Life, can and does impose serious and insurmountable obstacles to frustrate and impede many, many people endeavouring to achieve. We can choose to push it to those very limits that Life/cicumstances dictate. To do our best in fact. The limits that we ‘can’, set are those at any stage thats less than ‘our best’.
t think my original statement is indicative of any particular regional philosophical point of view. Im just stating a simple fact of life, and one that is relevant no matter where we live on the planet. Its only the severity of the challenges, influenced by geography that are different. In many, many cases, for those people life…sucks!!
Whether Life ‘does’, or ‘shouldn
t’, suck, is a different matter altogether, and one I shall return to at a more civilised hour. But Ill just say this before I go: show me the most 'can do’, of Wall Street
s movers and shakers, and Ill show you a human being with limitations!
