This page,  MY LIFE MY STRUGGLES(hub link) My life my struggles


 We believe that it is the duty of any human being to try to improve what we have received during our lives, we have to do our part and try to pass our acquired knowledge to future generations, so that the world could become a better place. 
Having said that I believe that in this case I can contribute by writing my religious theory that might be able to solve some future religious issues that the world is facing today, the story of my life, and we will have also articles of public interest in other fields 

 These are Frank Menchise writing works, they talk about the duty of any man, and this can be religious or otherwise, but, a man has got to do what is right for humanity all the time, so, we are going to show you where you can find all what we have written about this duty and other issues, of course most of these writing works will be published here in these domains and it's sub-domains. 

 My life my struggles

Welcome to my article of, My life my struggles, you are all invited to browse as long as you like, and then write a comment if you like.

This is going to be just a simple man life journey that is being told from the old man himself and that old man is me: So, let me tell you about my own life, allow me to start with memories of my life, whether they are happy happenings or sad ones, and also the struggles of my life since life may be said that is a beautiful struggle, you see, I feel that I have been struggling all my life, in fact I feel that I am even struggling just now, while I am writing my memories.

My beautiful life struggles

Dear readers let me tell you that these are the struggles of life of an ordinary and partly educated man, who even now is struggling in order to live his life in full; one would describe him as a born struggler, who kept battling on during his whole life so to speak.
So, as it often happens to the best of us, sometimes he won his battles and sometimes he lost them. And although when he had a tough battle a scar or mark was left on him for life, he never thought to surrender to the adverse elements that life brought to him; but he kept battling on his whole life from his very tender age onward. And no matter how hard it became for himself he kept struggling on, in order to conquer those negative elements which sometimes make life miserable.
He had to do it all by himself because; there is no other way that a person can live his own life, but one has got to keep fighting on and never give up, no matter how hard it might become during one’s own life, starting from the very beginning when we are born.
And this is the subject that I’d like to be talking to you just now, which is going to be never the less the very same story of my life, as I have already mentioned before.
So looking at what life usually bring us I have to say that, it seems to me that we are born to struggle, in order to find our own way in life, as there seems to be no other ways available.

But here I would also like to point out to you that, there are lots of people throughout the world nowadays, who believe that we are born to suffer; but I could not agree with them at all, because I don’t believe for a single moment that we are born to suffer. The reasoning is that if we believe that we are born to suffer, then, when something would make us suffer we would have to accept suffering as it was, and we would do nothing at all to improve our situation. To me this situation would be absurd, and therefore, I prefer to believe that it should always be possible to do something to improve my situation, even if is going to make me struggle hard for a long time.
So now, let us stop to think about what we have just said, because I would like to speak a bit more on this subject, since I would like to try and convince you that what I believe would be correct; so I hope you don’t mind following what I have in mind, which is that I would like to explain a bit more what we have said for comparison sake.
You see generally speaking for a start, I am sure that all good parents wish from the bottom of their hearts, that their children will have an easy and happy life to live.
And if we were to ask any parent, or would be future parents: if they would like to have any children at all, knowing in advance that their children would have to suffer during their life time. I am sure that they would never agree to have children under such conditions.
Having said that now I have to say that I don’t know exactly why and how it came about, the belief that we are born to suffer. Although I suspect that this could be part of religious cults, and they do this to scare us in order to control us: I am saying this because it is a well known fact that religious people have had some influence in these beliefs, because for a long time they have preached and believed that the flesh had to suffer, and only through suffering the soul would become holy in the eyes of God.

  Let us talk about this religious mistaken view

Here I have to say that I don’t see the need for the flesh to suffer, in order to become holy in the eyes of God; therefore, I believe that they have made a mistake and their beliefs are wrong, because if you are a believer and you believe in God; how could you ever think that we are born to suffer? How could you ever think that? Just think about it! How could God Our Heavenly Father, who is the perfect Father in every way: Why should God make us just to make us suffer?
No! The whole thought of suffering here is absurd, because any good father loves his own children, and therefore he wishes that his own children live a good and happy life. Therefore, God who is the best father of us all must have made us to be free, so that we could choose our own way of living, and if during our lives there happens to be painful times, we have to rectify it ourselves in our own way, even if this will make us struggle to overcome the suffering.
Therefore I am sure that we are not born to suffer, but perhaps we are born to struggle and to find our own way.

Now I would like to tell you, that I understand that life is not easy except for a few people that are born lucky. Therefore for those people who think that life is easy, I am pretty sure that they are in the minority; and ether they are the very lucky few, which everything has been done for them, or they are such full’s that they cannot see what life is all about. 
Indeed it is a well known and acknowledged fact of life, that there are several kinds of struggles within our present life: And as a matter of fact some great man have acknowledged of the existence of these struggles, and also of the existence of an inner struggle which we feel within ourselves. And some of these men have even expressed their views in public, in a direct way or an indirect way. In my life time for instance, ‘The Right Honourable Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Fraser,’ when the public was complaining that life was a struggle for them under his government policies; He used to say to them and I quote; ‘Life is not meant to be easy’.
Therefore I feel so sure to admit that there are struggles in our lives, even if we don’t want them to be there, and I can assure you that even when we are not struggling, life is not meant to be easy for us, because, we will always be struggling as something somehow will bother us.
Therefore, my own life being just like anybody else, or perhaps worse off in some respect, I would like to tell you to the extent of some very personal details, so that I will be able to show you and prove my point that in order to survive I had to struggle.
So, it seems to me that from here onward I am going to tell you ‘The struggles of my life.’ Or perhaps should I say the story of my life; since this is the only issue that I am sure to know better than anybody else.

 Why tell the story

I would like to tell you the story of my life, just the way that I have lived it; with so many good chances that were wasted, owing to the fact that I was badly prepared when I was young. And I would like to comment about the anguish that those wasted chances brought with them, then and also later on during my life. So, when I think about the past with all its suffering that I have been through, I believe that I could have lived a better life, if I had been better prepared for it when I was young. And this is the most important aspect that I want to demonstrate here, and if you think that I am lamenting about my own life you are right. Anyhow one of the reasons for telling you this story is that you can compare this life story to your own life story and hope it could help.

Let me add here also other reasons that have made me write this hub about my life struggles, even though here I am trying to tell you the story and struggles of my life, I would like to see some benefit flow to my readers, perhaps in the sense of looking at life in a more acceptable way when things go wrong and they have to struggle; then they may remember my story and say to themselves, life is hard for me these days, but I am not alone, because lots of other people are indeed struggling these days, look at this story that I have just read, which was talking about somebody else life struggles; you see, once you know that you are not the only one struggling things will look better.

I believe that I might have said enough in this hub of my life my struggles, so, I would like to conclude by saying that I am going to write more in my next hub called, My life story and laments or, This is my life story plus, or something like that?

Welcome to my hub, An old man story, or should I say my life story, my life missed opportunities  and my destiny plus other things, you are all invited to my hub and you can browse as long as you like because this is my life story and nobody else and I invite you to read it.

Hello my readers!

We all try to live our lives the best way we can, and we all wonder at the things that have happened to us during our lives, but once we have lived those life happenings they all seems to us only a dream, they are like a sort of distant memories so to speak, but nevertheless it has been our life that we have lived and our life is a story that can be told, we would like to tell our life story perhaps just to compare with other life stories, we would like to tell our story hoping that there is somebody willing to listen to our story, perhaps to compare it with his/her own life story, because as you know everybody of us has a story to tell.

So this is my own life story that I am going to tell you, now, I don’t remember exactly how it all started this idea of writing my own life story, perhaps I have written part of it down somewhere else for personal reasons but I don’t remember now why I wrote that.

But anyhow the reason why I started to write it does not matter much, because as you know there are many people these days that write their own life story; so, I would like also to tell you my own life story for many reasons, and also to prove to myself that everyone of us as a story to tell, whether my story might or might not be as great as somebody else story it does not matter much, I am also saying this because I believe that I have had a rather hard life and therefore when I write my story, I might be going to lament about this hard life that I have lived. So I guess that not many people enjoy reading or listening to somebody else story, if they are not much fun; but anyhow this is the reason why I have called this hub, an old man story, and my life observations.

 This is just another piece of my life story. When I was a boy and a teenager, this is the view that I would see everyday from our small family farm. Those times were very different from now and most of the youths that their parents had farms started to help in the farm very early in life and so did I. 

This castle is called Monteserico castle, it is a very old smallish castle  but it is believed that this is the castle that the Norman used to rule over all southern Italy 

When I came to Australia I was working as a brickies labor. 

And here I learned to be a bricklayer, this goes to show that in life there are many opportunities if one tries hard enough to find them.    

  My life missed opportunities

I want to tell my life story also because; it makes me remember all the memories and experiences that have shaped my life, so let me tell you my own special life story, where I am going to tell you who I am, where have I been where I am now and how I got here, where I am now writing my own life story. I am writing this hoping that one day my family and friends might read my story and understand a bit more about me.

So as I have said, I have decided to tell you my own life story, because of something that has happened to me recently during my life. You see, now that I am in my early sixties, and therefore I am in the later part of my life span. I have to say that although I am an old man now and therefore experienced with life and what life can throw at us and sometimes it can be rather bad; one of my latest experience has made me feel so inadequate and frustrated lately, for not being able to reach out and make happen, what I wanted so desperately to happen. And this is one of the reasons, or perhaps the most important reason, why I have started to write my own life story here and also go public in Hub Pages. Anyhow, I have also to say that I have felt so many other times before that feeling of being inadequate during my life, which I believe that it has been all because; I was put in a disadvantaged position when I was young, and for that reason I was not able to better myself to a satisfactory standard, which otherwise I would have been able to achieve if I had the chance, so, these are my laments in this life story and laments.
For these lost chances I can’t blame anybody, and I can’t even blame my mother for putting me in such disadvantaged position, because she was forced from disastrous and tragic events beyond her control. So I have come to the conclusion that I can only blame Fate, because it struck a terrible blow to our family when I was very young.
Therefore, if in my younger years I had been in a position to go to school at least for a few more years, or perhaps as long as my capacity to learn was used to the maximum; Then I could have learned whatever they teach at school, and at the same time as I would have been in a more social environment, and so, I would have been able to improve my social and communication skills while I were at school, those skills which are so important to communicate with the rest of the community nowadays.
Therefore, if I had acquired those social skills when I was young, I would have been accepted socially easily, and I would have felt happier with myself, instead of feeling sometimes left out from the main stream, concerned and isolated.
You see; if I would have had a chance to learn more at school, then I would have learned more when I was young, and from that extra education I could have been more successful later on in my life, because I could have used my acquired knowledge, and those social skills which I never had the chance to learn then, because if I had, I could have achieved better things and ripped more and better rewards from within this society that we are living in today, which seems to me that it is more and more demanding in these social aspect. You see, those social skills that I have been talking about must be learned when one is young, so that they may and will become part of one self and therefore one can use them to their own advantage all their life long.

  Perhaps we have our own destiny

Today I have to say that there might be something called a destiny, so one might be born to live a certain way of life, or perhaps our destiny is already written in God’s book of our own life and in a way we are forced to live our lives, which is going to be influenced by some life events that are behind your control. I don’t know really what to think about this, but somehow I believe there is a sort of destiny, but it is not completely fixed and it can be modified if we have the opportunity and continue to try our best.

Anyhow, dear readers as I have already said, I have come to blame my fate for most of my life short comings and pains. Because I believe that when I was born, I was born with a good chance to live a better life; but it was not to be that is why I think that perhaps it was my destiny. So my dear readers if you happen to read my life story, you may very well ask. Why is it that I am telling you mostly sad stories? Is it possible that in my whole life, I had so many sad happenings and not any happy ones?
Well I should say here that I have had a few happy happenings, but if I had to tell you about my happy happenings they would be so few and very boring indeed, and nobody could or would be interested to hear them anyhow, because they seem to me that they are not important.
So, I would like to talk now most of all, about those happenings that have affected my life in a way, one could say that they have made me struggle during my life, as I have already said in my last hub, My life my struggles, this is the link to my life struggles,
 My life my struggles  
I know dear readers that you might be thinking that it is meaningless to write down all this useless stuff, as nobody might be willing to read it or get any benefit from it:

But I am thinking that if my writings survive in a hidden corner just for a generation or two, and even if my writings are written poorly, as my English written skills are not the best at the present time. But I believe that in several years when time passes, then whoever would be reading my writings will find them more interesting, because life was so different in the old days that I lived, as I have started to live my life long before the great changes of nowadays.
And if what I am writing is going to be useless anyhow, I will do it just for practice, so that I would be able to improve my English language and also my writing skills. So that I could feel more confident within my own self, and therefore I would not feel to be in such a hopeless and desperate position; like that time when something happened to me at a certain stage of my life, but at that time I was not able to cope with it properly, and because I wasn’t able to cope that matter in my case became also very painful, because of what I wanted to reach and do but I wasn’t able to, here I am talking about a matter that was and indeed is a very delicate matter of personal nature, so I am not going to disclose anywhere willingly.
But I would like to tell you that my helpless and desperate feelings, I will write them later on including what was it that caused me so much distress; But this distress has also made me come to a decision, which is that I have to improve myself in my lacking skills. So, now although I am getting old, I will try very hard if I can improve myself, so that, my improvements may still help me in my later years to reach where I have failed now. You see this is my view about life; when you fail you get up dust yourself and try again harder.  
Therefore by writing my own life story, I will also help myself to improve my English and my communication skills, which after all they are the art of being able to write or to say, the right words at the right time with the right meanings; since saying meaningful and skillful phrases is just like when one writes them down.
So please don’t be annoyed by my life story and allow me to write a few things that I have gone through during my own life. I would like to write them; so that I could show you how hard life can sometimes be, since this applies particularly to me; because during my life so many things have changed since I was a child; I know of course that things will still keep changing nowadays and in the future, and very likely even faster than before, but now because we know of the coming changes we are able to accept them more easily than before, and therefore they will not seem that bad to us anyhow, because at least we believe that we know where we are going in the near future.
