Why Struggling is a Good Thing

We are quick to criticise those who are struggling, but perhaps we should applaud them for this simple reason:  The fact that they are battling means they haven't given up.

Perhaps we should encourage those who struggle - encourage them to keep battling, encourage them to persevere despite the odds, and love them where they are, thereby giving them the freedom to devote all of their energies to fighting the battle rather than defending themselves to unnecessary critics.
