What is life?Do we have an exact answer?What I know is life isn't easy to every one.Everybody lives a different life.We always think:The others' life is better than mine.Is it true?We sometimes just envy others because they have something we don't have.I am a person who can't stand doing nothing all day long.However,I will envy the people who live such a life.Life seems to be easier to them.
"Life is what you make it."--a wonderful sentence.All of us want to make our life what we want it to be,but not all of us can make our dreams come true.We complain when we learn that we can't reach our goals.We keep working hard before we fail.Life often likes to make a joke on us.
I often think that I will live a different life from others'.Now,I learn that :no matter how good a life it seems to be,you won't be happy if you can't live the life you want it to be.

Great post! Your writing is very good!

Quick Grammar Notes:
We complaint should be We complain

We keep hard working should be We keep working hard.

Life often like should be Life often likes (3rd person "S").

I like how you say that we often will envy what we don't have. There is a saying in English The grass is always greener on the other side. What someone else has can often look much better than what we have. However, the same is true for the other person (they may also not be satisfied with what they have).

Learning how to be content with what we have is a difficult (but important) lesson to learn.

Thanks for the thought-provoking post!

Have a great summer (and keep writing)!
