does a struggle free life even exist (not even just financially, just life in general or struggling with anxiety etc.)?

Its quite likely. I was gonna say I doubt Buddhists are struggling with someone but then again, they're only human and the probably slip up here and there.

Probably, but surely it depends what it is.

I always observe strangers and wonder what they may be going through. people may look so happy and put together but may be drowning in depression. the person sitting next to you on the bus may have been told the worst news of their life. ah, this life is mad.

Because they're all about overcoming suffering and achieving enlightenment. Idek, I'm tired and my brain isn't working properly lol

Yes, that's why you should always endeavour to be nice to people. You never know what people are going through and your thoughtless actions may be the straw that broke that camels back
(Not directed at you specifically OP just society in general)

If a person isn't struggling with something, they're not ambitious enough. The best way to learn and grow and better yourself is to struggle.

This is precisely why I have started to keep my mouth shut or go somewhere quiet by myself when I'm angry or not feeling positive. my tongue used to hurt others a lot (and myself emotionally because I always instantly regret it).

it's so hard learning to be emotionally intelligent, let me tell you!

Unless they are an arhat or bodhisattva (very rare) then safe to say they have some mundane concerns!

We most definitely struggle at some capacity or another. That's what makes us human!
