I’d say the hardest years of my life were 18-27. Nothing will ever touch those years again. 11-17 were very difficult in some ways too but not as bad as 18-27. Now 28-29 is getting easier. I think I will face hardships again and I still do but I’d be prepared to deal with them better with meds.
There are a lot of environmental reasons why certain ages will experience difficulties in certain areas rather than other ages.
I’m wondering what do you think the average person would say the hardest years of their lives are??? It’s an interesting question. When you graduate high school and sent off into the real world was what made it most difficult for me. Also midlife crisises or old age. We all deal with it differently than one another. Some have really really rough early childhoods and then it gets better from there. Or not. It’s All different. But I’m talking about generalities and what about you as an individual, at least so far???
