    Is life's troubles just a mere thought bubble of sorts?

    Explain what you think life's troubles truly are, and try to use any true to life evidence you can muster up to support your take on it all.

    Life's troubles are part of the weather. Sometimes it is smooth sailing, and other times you are caught in a hailstorm with no cover.

    They say Life is a chain of experiences  and troubles is not the right word to say that Life is trouble.
    Even if you call it trouble think what life would be with out trouble.
    We swing all our life in one way or other.
    My security man sleeps sitting in his chair in his cabin near the gate.
    I sleep in a A/C room in my Home.
    You think he has trouble?.
    You think I do not have trouble?.
    Thought Bubble - No
    Trouble - Yes & No.
    Life - ends on 31st,December,2012 at 12:00 to many.
    Life - Starts on the day soon after.
    You will be reborn.
    I will be reborn.
    But our sex will be Male to Female and Female to Male.
    Do not give to any body trouble because when you are reborn you will get that trouble.

    Wow,good question.
    I would have to say, that remaining true to and with ones self, would be one of the more difficult challenges. I can see it within myself and in those around me daily. It seems to be all too easy for our minds to "convince"it's self that our surroundings and our own behavior are more favorable rather than questionable.Denial,self centered thinking,delusions of grandeur,selective morality and fear are all hurdles and stumbling blocks brought on by the brain's "self defensive" mechanisms. Rationalization,procrastination and habit would be on the list of my personal character defects as well.One good example that we all see daily right here in Hubs are the endless attacks tossed back and forth by the Religious and the Atheist.I'm sure they believe themselves to be just on both sides but in a matter of seconds debate transforms into an assault on the personality and derogatory juvenile insults spew like erupting volcanoes. In reality it's just a basic state of fear. Fear of the unknown mixed with a touch of inflated ego and intolerance. I'm beginning to ramble so to clarify the babbling in regard to the question,personally I think one's biggest problem in life is one's own self and how they perceive  the world around them.
    Very complex and thought provoking question.

    Life troubles can be use to help others overcome a similar problem.  For example you are having a problem with brown spots in your grass. You find out that the brown spots are caused by bugs.  Then you find a solution on the internet that will stop the brown spots and make your grass green again.  Your neighbors does not own a computer but has brown spots in their grass.  Give your neighbor the solution to make the brown spots go away from their grass. That is a minor troublesome problem corrected making the world a better place to live in.

    Yes, I do believe it is. All of lifes troubles are dependant on the person or persons they affect.
    For some people they might consider it one of lifes troubles to have their heating boiler break done, whilst another might see it as an opportunity to huddle together and make it a romantic period in their lives.
    Oh, and I love the picture, by the way. Very apt.
    All of lifes troubles are relative, and in that respect they may be considered as thought bubbles.

    Life's troubles work two ways.  First, they mature you.  Then, they give you the ability to help someone else go through similar circumstances.  The Bible even says that they ALL work together for the good of those who love God, just in case you've never heard that one.

    I'm beginning to believe that they're the law of attraction. what you think about (thought bubbles) and what you feel is what you attract. so if you're worried about troubles, then you attract them to yourself. An example that I experienced is 2 years ago my grandson was being baptised on December 26th in New York. I live in New Hampshire and was totally stressed about driving in possible bad weather. Wouldn't you know it, that's when the blizzard hit the Northeast. I'm not saying my thoughts caused the blizzard but hmmm. Just kind of kooky.

    I think life, generally, is a learning experience and a chance for us to realize our true identities and our place in the cosmos.  Troubles force us out of our comfort zones and help us to realize that we have more strength and resolve than we think.

    Two ways of looking at a half filled glass

    The glass is half empty.

    The glass is half full.

    I like to think of life's troubles the second way and make things work.

    Life's troubles are nature's way of checking you, getting you back on the right path.  They are lessons that you need to learn in order to move forward in life. However, you have to be open and aware to realize this or you will begin to dig yourself in deeper and possibly get stuck where you are. So enjoy the challenges that life gives, they are growth opportunities.
