    "difficult to proceed/not easy to do"?


    Life is difficult to proceed/not easy to do without others' help.

    Does either phrase work, please?

    I am not a teacher.

    They would both work for me if you removed 'to proceed' and 'to do'.

    Re: "difficult to proceed/not easy to do"?

    We don't "do life" or "proceed with life". We simply live life.

    Life is difficult.
    Life is easy.
    Life is not easy.

    You could say something like "Life is difficult to deal with without other people's help".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
