Okay Now She's Gone to Meddlin'

Andrée Seu just flat brings it today.
I have developed a distaste for the word "struggling"—as in "I am struggling with anger" (or lust, or homosexuality, or a bad temper, etc.).

It is a perfectly good word, and I know there are some people who are really "struggling." But many other people are spoiling the word for everybody. They are using "struggling" to mean something more like "repeatedly giving in"—which is almost the opposite of "struggling," seems to me.
