The most difficult thing that happened to you and how you got over it...

Different people have various responses. I know of some who consider being rejected (after falling in love). Others say it's losing a love one. Still, some might answer depression, bankruptcy, etc. When I hear people relate problems like this, I sometimes feel that my own life is bland. Please share what you think is the most difficult experience you ever had and how you got over such an experience. It would really be a great help if I ever undergo those things. Thanks!

I have a long list of difficult things I have been through in my life. Quite a lot. Most I don't really want to get into unless the topic on hand is in direct regards to one of these things etc, but one thing I have learned along the way, is every obstacle, every bump in the road, every earthquake in life just makes you stronger. Nothing can get me down for too long anymore, nothing can depress me to the point I cannot get out of bed and face the world anymore. I won't let it. Life is meant to be crap at some points of it, but for every bad thing that happens, there is bound to be a good thing. For example, if you lose something like an important work document that you've been working on for months and your computer just decides to crap itself and you realise that you had forgotten to hit save every now and again...the next day your boss may be angry and you may get in trouble, but perhaps a friend you adore comes to visit that night, or a re-run of your all time fave tv show is on, or you find $20.......there's always something in life to cheer you up and put that smile back on your face. Follow my ramble? Don't let anything knock you down.

Thanks! Yes there are indeed things that put a smile on our face. But there were a couple of times I told my friends I wanted to get rid of emotions because they make life so much heavier. My friends replied life indeed sucks but there are moments which are beautiful too, so why focus on the ugly things? :D

i never got a chance to tell her something, and now she's gone. i'm not sure if we can see each other again... i hope .. actually i always have the chance but i just mess around and never get serious with her because i'm afraid... we've been together for 5 years, we're classmates... but i still afraid to let express to her my feelings... they told me she also like me but i just ignored them, i guess that's the price i get... hahahaha

That's so sad... What if she really likes you and she gave you another chance chance? When you see her again, are you willing to tell her everything? My friend was in the same situation. She was in love with a guy for six years and she never told him until she realized all the chances are gone...Until now, she's still wondering about the what-ifs.

I guess the most difficult was I had 5 miscarriages years ago. I thought I would never have a child, But things worked out my son is now 24 and has given us a beautiful grandson. So God takes care of things if we have faith.
