If you’re unfamiliar with the website Reddit then you are missing out on a lot of interesting and fascinating things that are happening on the Internet. For example, the user we will talk about in this article shows to the world that having a strong will can get you through anything. He goes by the name of Bolt Amputated and he started streaming on Reddit a while back with a lot of encouragement from the Reddit community. His streams usually amass tens of thousands of users gathered to witness him play the guitar with an amputated hand.
He also streams on Twitch and this is his twitch account:
He seems to have a lot more followers on Reddit though, this may be due to Twitch being mainly a platform for streaming video games unlike Reddit which is more of a social media network.
This story is very similar to the story of Nicholas James Vujicic, the Australian man was born with tetra-amelia syndrome; this is a rare disorder that meant he was born without his four limbs. Anybody else would’ve given up but that wasn’t to be the case for Nicholas. He was determined to live his life just like anybody else, if not even more fully than most people.
The story of our Reddit user and Nicholas Vujicic show that being happy is a state of mind. And that without real struggle one can’t feel real happiness. And as one philosopher said:
“Sometimes, struggles are exactly what we need in our life. If we were to go through our life without any obstacles, we would be crippled. We would not be as strong as what we could have been. Give every opportunity a chance, leave no room for regrets. “ – Friedrich Nietzsche. Also, it shows there is still hope for humanity, the response that they get from people around them is overwhelming and the support that they get from people every day shows that there is still hope for us.
