I had the most difficult time when i was in college. My parents really strived hard for sending three college students in a row. there was one time when i need to find some means in order for me to survive and pursue my dreams. i experienced selling peanuts to my classmates and had my phone served as pay phone. my boardmates pay to call their parents in othe places. A difficulty in life is an opportunity to gain meaning and grow. It is therefore wise not to shun difficulties, but to revere them. When you do this, you enter a world of paradox where, as you add meaning, you also increase struggle. Of course, not all difficulties deliver meaning in a satisfying manner, every time, but even a difficulty we perceive to be meaningless has its lesson to teach.Sometimes, I asked: Why do certain difficulties propel me forward, and why do others drive me nuts? The answer is what makes us individuals, with unique gifts and unique deficiencies. when was your most difficult time?

we have the same situation in college. i suffered difficulties too, during that time, we are not well off and my father is working alone and his salary is not enough for us three to send us in college, there was also a time that i have to work part time as a working students in our school in order for me to get a free tuition and an allowance every month. there were also times that i have to make my meals into two instead of three times a day, in order for me to survive the whole month. you are really right, difficult times could lead you to challenge the things in life. it is a way of working hard after graduating.

it's good that you have already proved something. the next step is to maintain the stability of the things that we have right now.

It was when both of my parents separate their ways and I need to stay with my father's relatives and have to survive there with some of my cousins since I am the oldest children among cousins i have to do all the chores without any help for they don't let my cousins to help me, I struggled but this situation serves as an inspiration to move on.

it was indeed diffult in your side. it's not that easy to have separated parents. feels like you've been dismantled into pieces. but well, the show must go on. just prove to them that it's their loss and not yours.just don't do that when you get married.i'm referring to breaking the cycle.
