    Post Is the sentence grammatically correct?

    Hi everyone, this is my first time posting.

    "Life is sometimes so hard that you have to strive for even finding yourself."
    I am wondering about the grammar used in the above sentence, is it grammatically correct?
    "...strive for even finding yourself." sounds weird to me.

    Welcome to the forum, ankitdmc.

    Always state the source of your quoted text and name the author.

    Please note that a better title would have been strive for even finding yourself.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    Your friend's sentence is not grammatically correct. It should read "Life is sometimes so hard that you have to strive even to find yourself".

    Note that you can write "OK" (both capital letters) or "okay" (all lower case letters) but not "Ok". Also, "Facebook" should be capitalised even though their logo is written without an initial capital letter. It's an anomaly.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
