Let's not fool ourselves: The pandemic has completely turned our entire lives upside down. Private, social and in  business. Inner struggles for many of us are the bitter result. An inner struggle reflects an unresolved emotional conflict, an inner knot that has been cystic and that must be clarified in order to have peace and well-being. What is the result of an internal struggle? Frustration, frequent changes in mood and psychological fatigue (it is tiring to load with a frequent question) and anger. But it is also a stimulus to deepen the knowledge of oneself.
 
In essence, an internal fight shows an internal opposition, an opposition of contrary forces that steal the inner tranquility, serenity and peace. Therefore, in a situation like this it is very important to hear those sentiments to put ideas in order.
 
A person may also experience an inner struggle when there is an internal debate between duty and the crave order. How many times, you want to give up? Ask yourself?  Similarly, it is also possible to experience this internal struggle into an existential crisis.
 

There are personal disagreements in the daily routine, as shown by the difficulties of coexistence: partner discussions, differences in criteria with friends, anger of family... . However, it is important to point out that the relationship that a person has with others, part of the bond that has with itself beyond individuality. Every human being establishes a constant relationship with their own identity. In this way, a process of self-knowledge is established. The inner world of a human being is very complex, marked by duality and constant struggles. In other words, a person can feel an inner struggle between reason and heart.

 
Inner conflicts typically begin with statements such as "I am sick of, I always or I am so tired of" and it is not unusual for them to be accompanied by some jaw clenching, an occasional rant or stomp of the foot.  Everyone has a unique problem of their own, an issue that follows them throughout life and never goes away. You discover it early and go on to struggle with it for the rest of your life, almost until it eventually becomes an old enemy that you lose the will to fight or hate anymore.
 
There are environments that are especially suitable to reflect calmly on oneself. For example, take a stroll through a green area and walk. Or, I talk with family members. They are experiencing the same struggles - young and old. Or, I  pray and talk to God. 
 
Fortunately analysis is not the only way to resolve inner conflicts. Life itself still remains a very effective therapist. Allow me to quote  F. Scott Fitzgerald:  "I hope you live a life you're proud of, and, if you find that you're not, I hope you have the strength to start over!"


Yes, hopefully the struggle we're in today is developing the strength we need for tomorrow. Stay safe and healthy everyone.
