What is the one thing that you have had to do in life that was harder then anything else and why was it so hard to do ? How has this impacted your life and would you do it differently if you could do it over again ?

The hardest thing that I ever have to do is breaking my marriage more than a year ago. We marry and the wish that it will work comes with it. So definitely, it's very painful to see your own own marriage failing. However, I got over it now and yet, I still feel the pain of not getting what I had expected out of my marriage.

The hardest thing I've ever done is to relocate and my mother was left behind in my native country. I am an only child and my parents are separated. It is just me and my mother since I was 7 months old. We missed each other and I got a 3 year old toddler and another coming...and she wanted to be here for her grandchildren. But soon, she will be here with us and am looking forward to that. It is not the same without my mother because I worry about her all the time and if she is here with me, I know I could trust her with my children and if things go wrong, when my mother says, everything will be allright, I know it will be. I just want it too that I will be able to take care of her when she gets older, to return the love and care she showered me all my life.

As for me , the hardest thing in life in life is living out with little funds to meet daily expenditure . It is very hard to think of it even .

I've had one: when I raised my voice with my mother for the first time, it totally deterred our relationship. But we are in good terms now, it's just that when I did it, everything seemed to change. I definitely not want to repeat it again. I just lose my temper and control sometimes - usually when I am provoked. But I'd never ever do it again for the sake of our mother-daughter relationship.

It was really hard for me to finally make the decision to end my marriage. It's a decision that until now I keep mulling over and keep on asking myself if I am being selfish for not letting it go on. Until now, there are times that I still have to stop and think about it and ask myself if I really made the correct decision though in my heart I know that I did what I really thought is best for me and my children.

I have to agree that , that would be a tough decision to make as you put in so many years and so much work in something you believe is going to last a lifetime but when it doesn't there is a lot of hurt feelings and this would be so much harder to do with children . I am glad to hear you did what you had to do as it really is a hard decision to make when you have to end something that you expected to have forever . Thank you for your response .
