i honestly think that life is getting harder now and a few of the reasons i think that it is is because of gas prices going up and i don't really know how they are going to stop that unless they figure someway for the united states to start producing a lot of the fuel at a lower cost...i mean the food and everything like that in stores are going up and the gas is going up so it is harder for us to survive because honestly we have to pay gas prices and that is really hard to do...so i really think that life is getting harder, do you agree or not? thanks for taking the time out of your day to stop by and read and review my discussion and i hope that you reply to my discussion and i hope that you all had a great day and that you have a great night tonight, once again thanks for taking the time!

Yes I agree, It does not matter how much money you make unless you are oil producer, Everybody is having a rough time. Because even if you have a profitable business it is hard to keep passing the cost to the clients, the US Dollar loosing ground to the euro, even the Sterling pound has suffer. Everywhere the ecomonies are suffering and like it or not everyone has had to downsize. Keep the calm, think positive and with prudence. Remember money does not dissapear it only change hands!

As much as we don't really like it, it takes money to live. Without any money life would be even harder so be happy you are getting by. I have a hard time getting by because of the price of things and I don't make a lot of money at my job so it can be tough at times. But in saying that, life has always been hard for me because of not having enough money. Makes my world hard and sad at times. I work so hard cleaning houses and I barely get by. For me it is the cost of housing that hurts. My daughter and I are paying $1500 a month rent and that is what is killing me financially. We are going to look for something cheaper when our lease is up at the end of May but there aren't a lot that are any cheaper. Alrighty then, talk to you later my friend, Have a good mylotting day, Chris

Hello jhl. I agree with you that it is true indeed that life is getting harder than ever before due to the rise of the prices for everything. I am wondering when we can get back to the good old days one more time and I am expecting it to come back. I miss those cheap days.

Well I am really glad that even though everything has sky rocketed it has not effected our lifestye so far. We have just done things to accomodate found ways to save money and changed some of the things that do not matter to us.
