Being a journalist by profession words mean a lot to me, and when I look at the word struggle I see a great deal of energy being expended by people attempting to get something they believe they need. Struggles, like the tango, generally take at least two participants. Struggles can be internal or external, but generally speaking they take up a whole lot of self-directed energy. And, while all that energy and time are being expended, there's a whole lot going on in other venues that our strugglers are of necessity pretty oblivious to. Struggles often mean that two or more participants want the same thing, and that sets up situations where there have to be winners and losers.
