My toughest time was when I was an adult. I had a very good career and income.The stress of my career and having little kids was too much for me and I became a drug addict. I lost everything. I was homeless for a time. I wasn’t on the streets long enough to ruin my looks, so I married a rich but abusive man. I got clean through sheer isolation. I began to see what an immature coward I had been. I got through the negativity by pledging my self to making the future better than the past. I divorced this abusive man and have become a much more introspective person, and am still on the road to repairing as best as I can, the damage that I caused. That’s how I am dealing with the negativity, the despair, and the hurt. I work everyday toward my goal. I will never stop. So that’s it.

The months of my dying marriage and subsequent recovery from divorce. I had to fight a lot and then I was poor. I got through it by getting rid my ex wife which lead to me having more money.

My childhood years of a sibling’s death and abuse and now the past few months of my longterm marriage ending. I am getting out of it by moving forward with my life and finding new friends and activities. Also, by surrounding myself with love from old friends and family members.

I think the toughest time in my life is now, dealing with my health issues on top of a new home and a new job. Overcoming it is not about waiting until I get dealt a better hand, it’s how I play with the hand I’ve got. I haven’t won yet, but I think I’m doing okay.
