Personally for me, the toughest thing I've done is give a presentation reading of a piece of paper in front of a class I was in.

If I ever had worse than minor surgery I would've listed that as my thing.

The feeling is mutual. Find the "X" after all those years, "X" continues to be missing.

Surviving the earthquake in japan in 2011.

I was right near the ocean so we had to run to the mountains to avoid the tsunami.

Never thought I would experience anything like it, and never thought i was going to survive it.

Overcoming social anxiety/depression issues.

It took YEARS before I was able to get over myself and these dumb irrational fears I had.

Feels pretty amazing being over that hill though. Couldn't have imagined back then that I would be as happy with myself as I am now.

Accept the fact that I survived going to war only to almost get shot two weeks after returning from Iraq in a robbery in Atlanta. Made me wish I still had my rifle when the little punk had his pistol pointed at my best buddy and I.

I have been fighting that clinical depression and an unstable thyroid for the past 6 years. Definitely the hardest thing I've had to do.

Admitting to myself I no longer believed in god. It was terrifying because of the brainwashing about hell that they put into you in Christian homes from an early age to keep you too scared to question the faith. Now the whole idea of hell just makes me chuckle. It's equatable to how a criminal will do something, and a child will witness it, and he will tell them that if they tell what he did, he will come back and kill his family. That child will then take YEARS to get over that absolute belief instilled in them from such a young age that this person WILL hurt them if they so much as even think to utter a word about it. It's just blackmail, do what I say, or I'll hurt you/ God will hurt you.

Having been a child in a broken home, divorce was one of the tougher things in my life as well.

Dig a hole at the back of the house I used to live in and bury my favorite cat. Especially knowing her death could have been avoided if my landlord took proper care of the house...

Getting over the fear of hell was difficult for me, too. I used to be a Muslim, and just prior to leaving the religion, I was extremely paranoid about the possibility of "being wrong all along" about my rejection of Islam and so being cursed by Allah later in life. Now I just laugh when some zealous Muslim tells me how scary hell is supposed to be.
