With the year coming to a close, remembering the good days,as well as the bad days. What are the bad things that happened to you this year?
This Year My Bad Days...I Were Lost My Sister..
Sorry for your lost Fahmida87. Each one of us has his/her destiny to fulfill, we can't change or escape from it. We can only enjoy the ride while it lasts. Again my condolences.
Yeah that's true dear, as much as it pains us to loss our love ones we still have to live because we will surely see them again up there.
Oh, am so so sorry for your lost and i pray that may her soul rest in peace.
I’m so sorry, that’s a really upsetting thing to happen. Hopefully over time the pain will lessen and will be replaced with lots of happy memories. Sending you all the best.
Yeah that's true, over time the pains will lessen and she will find more happiness.
Condolences to you and your family. Sorry to hear the loss of your sister. May she rest in peace.
True, I feel for them too, but it will get better.
Everyone is going through a hard time, including you. Let's lift our problems up to the Lord and let us be surrounded by friends to let us forget the pain. Cheer up Fahmida87.
Thanks for Your Great Idea...
Last May my Laptop got busted, I got it repaired in a week then got busted again after several days, costing me a lot.
By July I got scammed by a Russian site which I was working on, never got the $528 they owed me.
It's sad to know you got scammed especially with that kind of amount. A lot of people likes to be successful at the expense of others. But, I am glad you are able to cope with your disappointment and failures. You are still motivated to work and trust clients. Good luck.
Yeah that's true, I thank God he was able to move on after everything without backing down. That's good to know, Kudos.
That's a tough series of misfortunes man. I feel for you. Is there a way for you to maybe name the site that did not pay you? So that others can avoid transactions with them? I don't know if that is allowed here though, if it is not then that is okay. We'll just be extra careful from now on. Thanks.
Hahaha, I think he should do that because I also think it will be of help to people here, I don't trust Russian sites anymore.
It's Exnews17.com it's a scam site which was very new when I started working and after 2 months when I was trying to withdraw my earnings it blocked me.
Be careful when working with websites that offer a big amount of potential income. Look for reviews of the website if it is really paying or if it has some issues before starting to work. It's really disappointing that after you've worked so hard, you only end up with nothing.
You are right. For us not to experience being scammed we look for reviews of the website. We should not easily throw our hard earned money away.
Yeah that's true, If I don't see a genius review about a site I will not click it even if they have good recommendations on Facebook because it can all be fake.
Yup. Don't be enticed to those websites that offer big returns for your investment and you don't have to do anything but to just wait for your money to grow.
I agree with you. It is always best to read review on any site that is potential for earnings. This will avoid disappointment in later times. It is always best to extend security measures especially on our earnings.
Yeah that's true, make a deep research about site will help you understand how they operate to avoid scams, thanks for the tips.
Reading reviews is like the best bet not from Google even,read it from forums that's where we can get very authentic reviews not those paid reviews some sites pay people to write and upload on Google. It can even be depressing having to work without pay.
Yup. And it could also be a good thing if you could find the profile of the reviewer on social media so you could check if it is really legit.
Wow really a touch year for you because it's not easy to work yourself for that urge sum and not getting it.
That does suck about the money you were scammed out of but hopefully it was also a learning experience. That part is important too: even from the bad experiences in life there can be something to gain from them.
Yeah that's true, everything you go through in life come with experience, I hope he learns from it.
Sorry to hear about your laptop and the $528 that was scammed. I hope next year will be better for you.
Yeah I also hope so for him. It's not easy.
Woah! That's huge was it just their money or you also invested some of your money. This is like $750. This is why I don't like working on high payout sites it can really be frustrating when one doesn't get paid after all done and all.
Yeah it's really frustrating and I have decided not to do such things anymore because I can't take it.
There are so many bad things that happened to me this year. It's not really a happy year for me but I'm still positive for the coming year. I'm still grateful and positive that there is still a good future waiting for me. Hoping for the best this 2019. Problems are part of life so I'm just letting things go and leave it all to God.
You are right. Problems are part of life. I have a lot of problems too this year.
2018 may be bad but surely next year will be even better, I believe so.
Yeah that's true, positivity is a great key in life, as far as they is life they is hope for better things ahead.
Bad things happened this year: Yes I also experienced bad things this year but If I compare it to the good things that I've experienced this year those bad things is no match to the rate of good things. I always look for the good things rather to the bad things that came into my life because I have a mind set that everything happens for a purpose and I can overcome it all by God's grace.
Wow that's great to hear, I am happy to know that and also glad too. It is well.
This year we lost 3 of our loved ones. We lost my Uncle and Aunt and a cousin.
Oh so bad, well I feel sorry for you but it all happened for a reason and God know why. Never year will be better and they will be less dead.
I'd like to think that bad things is always a part of our life. Thou, it hurts but we need to accept reality. It also teaches us the moral values in life. We get to appreciate and learn from it. Had it not with it, we will not be courageous and strong to face our trials. Life would also be boring. Failures and happiness is what makes our life worth living. In spite of the negative things I just want to see the positive side of it. Keeping my faith and believe that everything will be fine in God's guidance.
That is true. All we need to do is to accept reality. Bad things are really part of life.
Yeah that's true, they is no perfect life therefore we should learn to live with it.
Yeah true, when such thing face us we are faced with reality which we need to accept.
This year I find being stuck in a dire financial struggles as a downside of my 2018. It was quite frustrating not to be able to help my family. I was not successful in the job I choose,so I left.
That must be very frustrating to find yourself being unable to help you family because of financial struggles. I feel you.
Oh I feel sorry about that but I want you to put more effort in 2019 and I believe you will get a job and make yourself proud.
This year is a bad year because I experienced too much stress from work and wasnt able to spend enough time with my family. So I promise next year I will donthings differently and always remind myself that I would be a better parent.
I know the feeling, stress and pressure is a dangerous mix. It's wise to minimize it because it could be a potential health hazard.
January, my whole family got in an accident. They all came out fine but the car was totalled. I don't really count that as a bad thing though because everyone was fine and that's what's most important. This year was quite good to me as l didn't experience anything bad that was life-changing.
I think I had also some bad days during this year which feels me to be disappointed and frustrated at some point, which is something that is inevitable. I remember being scammed for a few times on some freelancing sites that I have worked before, I give my time, knowledge and patience in working from a particular site but lately it will just scam me which I really don't expect to happen but then I have no choice but to accept my faith and just move on.
This year and the latter part of 2017 was actually the hardest. My brother got into an accident and my mother was diagnosed with Cancer. Anyway, I won't share the details of it, but it really was a hard time for us. But, thankfully, my mother and my brother are both recovering well.
That sounds harsh, I'm sorry. I hope things will go well for you. Cancer can be such a scary and challeging thing. The important thing is to remain calm and be grateful of life.
This year was hard since I got really sick and am still recovering and on treatment. However, I'm grateful for having a new chance to live, also I've become more aware of what's important and what I should focus on. I think this has been a very important lesson for me and a signal as well.
I don't really like labeling certain events as "bad things", since I try to look at them in a positive light. Instead, I think of them as obstacles. After all, though they might not have turned out with the most ideal outcomes, these events have taught me a thing or two about life. This 2018, there weren't many major obstacles that I found difficult, but the most challenging one would be stepping up as the president of my organization. It was much more stressful than I imagined, but so far I'm surviving.
Everything happens for a reason. God allow things to happen in our lives because He has a purpose. A lot of wonderful things happened to me this year. However, there are also some things that we can consider bad things or set backs. This year, my ex girlfriend was married to her new boyfriend after me. I was hurt because after three years I am still hoping and praying that God would give us another chance. On the other hand, I am also happy that she had already found that someone that can make her truly happy. She really deserves to be happy.
My mother suffered from a mild stroke, was hospitalized for one week, and was not able to walk when we checked her out from the hospital. It was a scary experience for me, seeing how my mother suffered while she is in the hospital. She couldn't eat while. She couldn't even sit by herself. But because of God's grace, my mother totally recovered and his body is back to normal again. It took more than one month before she was able to walk again.
I'm so glad that your mother has completely recovered. I'm sure it was pretty scary on your end. I hope that this coming 2019 and years to come, you get to share more quality time with her. All the best my friend!
Thank you very much! I really look forward that I could spend more time with my mother this coming year because she is getting old.
This has been a great way for me. I can't really point out a thing or two of the bad things that has happened, but what I know is that it was been an all round success that I am ever grateful to God for keeping me alive. 2019 is going to be a defining time for me and I hope to have the best out of it.
This year has been great for me! However, one bad thing happened. I broke my finger on right arm while playing football. It was so painful that I screamed. Now, I have recovered but it still hurts a little bit and I do not why is that the case. Maybe the doctors did something bad, I do not know.
This year was no different from other years as far as “family drama” is concerned. It continues just like the world turns. As for my work-at-home projects (forums, blogging, freelance writing, affiliate marketing, cryptocurrency adventures, etc.), 2018 was a really good year! Looking forward to 2019.
Well, I'm going to add on to my comments here. I don't mean to get political but I feel so badly about this that I feel compelled to mention it. I don't any responses from anybody. I just want to say it and get it off my chest,
Our government had a partial shut down because the president couldn't get money for a border wall he wants to build. That's not the bad news. The bad news is that people set up a GoFundMe to BUILD A WALL!! So far over $27 million has been raised. "This fundraiser is GoFundMe's 2nd largest ever (USD), reaching that status on the 4th day of the campaign. It was created to facilitate the construction of a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border to improve security." Quote source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GoFundMe
I don't care what anybody else says.
This goes down in my book under "Bad Things That Happened in 2018".
This year has been fantastic for me career-wise, so I don't have any complaints. Regarding personal stuff, I'll keep it to myself as there's a lot, and it's not even worth mentioning anyway. Haha!
Hmmm... bad things as in things that happened in my freelance career or just bad things that happened in general? Well, my freelance career is going pretty well I will say. I launched a new blog for top 10 lists in a very unsaturated niche - so that is a good thing. The only bad thing about that is that I need article writers willing to write 1000 word articles for about $10 (all i can afford at this time especially with the holiday season).
Another bad thing that has potentially occurred was an overwhelmingly backlog of support tickets that I am still trying to reply to. Again, because of the holiday season and being so busy I can barely keep up with my own helpdesk at this point.
In general life, I just got over being sick with either a cold or the flu. I think it was flu as the sickness was awful. Had to take a day off work because of it, so there's that. Yay for cold and flu season.. not!
Do you have more info on your blog site and what’s required from article writers? I’m curious!
After a good 7-years, some of my PC parts decided to give up. My PSU, my hard drive, and my mouse and keyboard. Pretty sucks to be forced to replace at least $300 of equipment, especially as I'm saving for something.
7 years is quite long! Having that for quite sometime means that you're good at handling your things. I actually envy you because I'm not even like that.
I lost both my grandparents in the past year, it was very surprising and a somber reminder that everyone in my family is getting older. While I'm happy that their suffering is over - both of them were terminally ill - I still miss their presence greatly as they were my biggest cheerleaders and were so proud of the successes I have had in life.
Sorry for your loss, Janie. I know the feeling - it’s not easy when your grandparents pass away when you’ve had a close bond with them. I think I was closer with some of my grandparents than I am with my parents so that’s definitely hard.
Aside from knowing my ex girlfriend got married this year and now she was already pregnant, another test in me is that my youngest brother was diagnose with a Cyst in his stomach last quarter of this year. We still need some laboratory test including a CT scan to know if that Cyst was cancerous or not. We're still praying for miracles.
I'm hoping that your family will be able to get through those challenges. I felt the fear that you have because my family also experienced the same problem. It's hard, but hang in there.
One bad thing that happened to me this year was when, at school, while we were having our title proposal for our Research subject, my stomach began to jumble and I suddenly needed to go to the bathroom. It was very embarrassing, having to excuse myself while our proposal was still on-going. I quickly defecated in our school comfort room and, despite my shame, I went back to our yet to be finished title proposal. I don't want things like that to happen again so I'm going to make sure that I defecate at home before going to school.
There are a lot of bad things that happened this year. But one that's affected me the most is the family problem that came up. Though I'm not that close with my family, they're the only stable thing that I have. Having my family become an unstable mess was too hard for me to handle. Hopefully things are much better for us next year.
I’ve been fortunate in 2018. It was honestly a very good year. I can’t think of anything that was significantly bad. Counting my blessings and hoping the same will be true in 2019.
That's great. I'm wishing every freelancer here to have a great year ahead of us. Advanced Happy New Year!
A lot of bad things happened to me both personally and professionally so I do not want to talk about it at all. Let us all focus on the good things that happened to us and enjoy the New Year that awaits us with even good opportunities and exciting twists and turns in our lives.
I have relative who passed away this year 2018 due to sickness which is something that really feels me bad at the moment. I am not expecting that he will die this year since he was fighting with his life and I thought that his condition was slowly going better but in an instant he died which is something that really saddened us. It really feels bad to lost a love one which you really like the most but then we have no control over our faith since only god knows on when we will die.
I had a whole rant planned. But after reading some of the stories here, I've heard a pretty good year. I think we all tend to forget what is important in life and worry about the most insignificant things. We stress about what to eat or what to wear or having no money yet the most important thing in life is having your health and your life, anything else is not important in my opinion.
I love this, I stopped typing my own rant when I read your comment. So thank you. We just have to focus on improving our lives, there's always another chance.
We all have those different bad days when it comes to our friends or family. My only bad day happened this year is that me and my girlfriend broke up. It was about April this year but then I am already moved on and we are good friends right now. I don't have any bad things happened to my friends and family and we are always happy and there is a lot of additional family members and friends that came to my life this year.
Lot of good and bad things happened this year. I had feet injury this year this month. And also some of the clients lost this year. I hope to see changes with the earning systems next year. And hopefully there are some other options for me open next year. I am going to work hard though. Let's see where that lands me in near future. Bad things happen but its always the time we have to move away from that.
Something didn't just go as expected this year,so I was like pressed by all sides but the good thing is that I kept only positive energy and kept striving despite all odds. I had to leave somethings and went back to it later,it was really a busy year but not really productive but I hope it becomes one next year.
There's always a bad things happen in our life but i think we have to move forward and forget all the bad memories to be build a better one.
There were many things that happened this year which I may not like and expect. People may view those as bad things or experiences. On my part, I view those undesirable situations as prayer and faith boosters. For instance, this year seems to be the worst time with my daughter. She has become more disobedient and disrespectful. I dealt it with more prayers and more trust in the Lord. This year, two cousins died, one was diagnosed with cancer, an aunt died, my husband was diagnosed with delusion. and I had two-moth bleeding. I was not able to control those realities of life. I simply prayed and gave due financial and emotional help.
Count the blessings and not the bad. Don't let it get to you. As for me, a lot of things happen. I always look at the silver lining and not the dark clouds. Whenever something happens that is not beneficial to me, I think of the lessons I am learning from my experience. #staypositive
Bad thing happened this year is i lost my dedication and inspiration to live. But thanks to god i am here now fighting and i hope this platform will be my stepping stone for my success
There are bad things, all right, but I have thrown them all out to the wind. What I want to remember for this year are the good things that came my way like the raise that I got from our office. That $300 a month increase in my salary is worth the long service that I gave to our company. That is the perks of having a job with a fixed income that when a raise is given it is big deal and very gratifying.
I haven't been keeping in touch of my past college friends. And i feel like I am fading away from them and wasting all that we've been through in the past. Well, this is a part of life that everyone experienced.
the worst thing happened in my year is being scammed because that scam website is so annoying
bad things happened in this year is buying a 2nd hand computer because the compute that i bought is garbage
This year was of sorrow for me. A lot of my relatives died and it breaks my hurt to see my sisters mourning for their loved ones. Hopefully 2019 will turn out to be a better year than 2018. I pray that good and beautiful things will take place for my family and relatives.
Well 2018 has been a mixed bag for me. There were some very good things that happened in my professional life and there were some problems that I faced in my personal life. However , I was able to overcome all the problems eventually. It helps to have a very supportive friend circle and family. Overall I would say that the positive things outweighed the negative things that happened this year. All that matters is that I am feeling great right now and looking forward to the next year with lots of optimism.
It is true that life won't be life is all that happened to us was pleasant. It is also true that this is a fact of life and to be happy we must accept this truth. It is equally true as well, that accepting the bad things that have happened to us and focusing on the good things is a great way to live a fulfilling life.
I tried thinking and thinking but honestly, I couldn't remember what are the bad things that happened. I have a really selective memory, I can force my mind to forget bad things so I'm not sure if nothing bad happened or I just forgot! I really don't know if that's a bad thing or good thing but I think it's better to focus on the good things in life rather than to dwell on the bad things that happened. It may be hard but remember, God only gives us problems when He knows that we can get through it.
i think when i lost my job as a engineer
