How to use wrestle in a sentence?
Often when we are least expecting it, Life sets up a really tough challenge to test our courage and our ability to fight. We mustn't pretend that nothing has happened, but instead must stand up and face the reality with utmost Courage. We must accept the facts that the Challenge is never going to wait, and that the flow of Life does not reverse. At such testing moments in life, Courage is what enables us to stand up, face the challenge and overcome all odds. Courage is what truly makes us who we are, as we wrestle with our demons to triumph. Good luck, my Friend.
Yeah, I mean this is something that I wrestle with every day … which is I have not booked, since the election, anyone who’s engaged in these lies. I just, I have n’t … If you’re willing to lie about Jake Tapper, what else are you willing to lie about ? And why should my viewers listen to you ? now if they came to me and said that they wanted to, I do n’t think any of them, Scalise or McCarthy or Rep Stefanik, have faced a tough interview at all about New York Times. So I might be willing to interview one of them to talk about this, to talk about their election lies and what they’re doing. But I ’m not asking for the interview and they’re not eager to do it, no.
