There is no proper definition for life. It is just like the chess game. Just like there is no perfect move in chess, there is no perfect definition for life. It depends on context, it depends on circumstances and situations.
Life is not always linear or peaceful and in the way you wish it to be. It can be scary and overwhelming.
But…. if you’re not overwhelmed, it means you’re not growing. Being overwhelmed is the part of the journey. It is the way you progress.
