My life seemed not to work out how i expected. I never imagined when i was little that i'd get pregnant at 18. nor did I imagine at 25 i'd be with 2 kids. But if asked and yes i have been if i had to do it all over again would I? My answer is always yes. I feel that without my kids I would be nothing. And i cant imagine life without them. My question is that no matter how different your life is from what you expected, are you really happy with your life. Did the difficulties really make you stronger?

I'm ecstatic with my life! I always figured myself to be a strong, independent woman. I had seen Mom wronged by so many guys growing up that I swore I wouldn't put up with it. But, then I fell in love - with my brother's best friend! I'm so happy to have him. I'm 25, I'm getting married, and hopefully starting a family soon. I couldn't be happier.

absolutely to both questions! I'm extremely happy, although I'd pictured my life much differently.. and yes all the hardships have made me stronger and a better person for them. I believe we're all give a path, and we follow it... no matter where it leads... i think that our choices are predestined by our personalities =o)

I got married at 19 and divorced by the time I was 24 then at 25 I had an accident that rendered my left side of my body utterly useless (bad landing skydiving) At 29 I had a child, and the father took off. and at 30 I met someone who I might consider marrying some day. So yeah I think despite my errors, I too would never change a thing, its lifes errors that help us learn to make better decisions in the future. I too couldn't imagine life without my son.

hy. Congrats for your 2 babys,and congrats that you could make it throw whit them and now be at 25 whit them ok and whit you happy. Its true that we all have a lot of problems,one of us have big problems one of us small problems,but we have problems. The problems can appaer on any of us and we should now how to face them.Many times the big problems are making us not to want to live another second and we wish to die.Its very easy for a person to wish to die,but its very difficult to do it. Everyone should now how to face the problems and go on becouse we have only ona life and good is testing us to a lot of things and he have to pass by. My life put me on tests and i allways passed by becouse i really want to live and make my life as good as i can.On my profile you will se that im 51,im not 51.I had to write there my moms identification becouse i lost my ID card.I'm 22 and i was telling you that my short life till now put me on several tests and i passed.We allways have to pass by our problems and go on.If the life shoul be simple and all the things that we should do be right and everything that we intend to do we know that in the end it will be fine,then what is the mistery? If everything would be simple then our life could be very boring and whitout sence.Like this we are allways like in a competition fighting to win. THE PROBLEMS HAVE TO MAKE US STRONG!!!And remember something: WHAT DOSENT KILLS YOU MAKES YOU STRONG!!!

happiness comes and goes so are difficulties.a brave man always comes out of the difficult situation and then again lead a normal life.well i m not married yet and similarly i dnt hv any child.but still children are the need and essence of life.without them the home luks very silent but with them every one gets engaged and makes it a happy home.difficulties makes you to learn a lot of differnt things.man learns by experience not by living a simple life of a rich man who doesnot have any problem.real life is lead by those who have faced the problems of day today life.they know how to live in any condition they are.difficulties do help to get stronger.i hav had some but wont like to give examples here.neways take care.

i salute you. you're such a strong person. and please be strong for your kids. and if it's okey to ask, are you still with the kids' father? if so, you are lucky! the experiences we had in the past wheter it was painful or happy ones molded us into who we are now. as much as possible, we should not try and regret things that we've done before. what's done was done. all we need to do is move on in life with hopes in life. and just like you, if ever i die and get another chance to be born, i wanna go through everything i went through in my previous life. it made me a much stronger person. and i love myself now.

I had bad experience in past when my girlfriend feared to get married with me keeping in mind that I have no economic background to stand on my own. Now i got married with another woman and got two kids and i never faced problem to manage the family and getting better education to the children. And in society also i got a good reputation and so much image in my field. I imagine to get govt. service but i didn't get through it. Eventhough I never discouraged. Love whatever you doing. Then only you get a lot of good times in your life. Never feel bad about your life. It's your own. Love it. Feel it. You got great times of your own.

life is full of unexpected, which is why it is interesting. i never regret any decisions that i have made and if i really have to face the same problems, i would still make the same decisions that i have made in the past. well it's great to hear that you have not regreted having 2 kids at the age of 25.

you can ask that again! i've learned, even at a young age, to accept problems as they come because they add to my strength and integrity. and you should not feel sorry for yourself because everyhing always happens for a reason. trust God.

I never expected much out of life....and was probably living each day as it came....but now as I look back, I realize it had its share of difficulties, but loads of fun as well.Its basically your attitude towards life. Take everything in your stride, with optimism in your heart, and you will find yourself as the winner in the long run.Overcoming your difficulties, makes you mature in life and what you call an experienced person.They are the phenomena to make you or break you.If you are strong, and are able to overcome your difficulties you are successful.If you are weak and fail, you end up in shatters, that is break up your life in pieces.
