Nietzsche on overcoming difficulties. Write a consolation/dialogue using Nietzsche’s philosophy on overcoming difficulties. The Consoled Individual is facing a life full of challenges and difficulties—e.g., in work and school. He complains that “life is too hard”. The Proponent of Nietzsche’s philosophy contends that true happiness is found only by the few who are capable of living a life that constantly overcomes challenges and difficulties. The Proponent uses Nietzsche’s ideas to show that we grow and become stronger by meeting life���s challenges.
