No matter what people say, everyone goes through a struggle of one sort or another in their daily lives.

Some of these are relatively minor in the grand scheme of things, however, and are the sort of things one simply vents about with their friends or family.

Others are a bit more serious, and much more personal.

So personal, in fact, that people feel as if they have no one they can talk to, as there is simply no one who could even hope to understand what they're going through.

Redditor achub0 gave people the opportunity to openly share their current struggles which they haven't told anyone about, leading them to ask:

"My Grandma has passed and my lovely ex-wife has helped me set up a small apartment that I can exist in."

"It's a silent battle to just keep going every day now that the person I was pretending to be my whole life has died in his own bed of ignorance."- jiffypopper44

Sometimes when we find ourselves lost in a funk of sadness or depression, it's easy to think that no one will understand, and no one can help.

But even if they won't necessarily understand, there is always someone willing to listen, who will also do their best to help.

When I was seven-years-old, I decided to use my allowance to buy one of those disposable cameras. It was less than $10, and my life was never the same!

Since I was so young, I wasn’t allowed to use my dad’s Nikon, in case I dropped it, so I never understood the joy he got from taking pictures until I got my own camera. Once I took my first photograph, I never stopped.

Now, I’m the one who gets pictorial evidence of special events or documents family trips. I’m the one who makes sure memories are preserved, and I love it.

You never know what purchase is going to be life-changing, but chances are, something was. Usually, these life-changing purchases aren’t even that expensive.

Dating is never easy, and yet, most still do it. But we have to go through a lot of frogs to find our prince or princess.

Dating is also different for everyone. Sometimes, you meet a person you automatically feel a connection with, you go out, and by the end of the night, you know you found your soulmate. Other times, the person does or says something that makes you think, Nope!

Unfortunately, the latter seems to happen more often than not. Redditors certainly agree, as they all gathered to share their stories of first date events or behaviors that were instant deal breakers.

The internet has proven a hugely advantageous advancement in technology.

Creating not only a world where we can buy just about anything with a single click, but also communicate with others all across the globe with considerable ease.

Something we were all beyond grateful for in March of 2020.

However, the internet can sadly be a dangerous endeavor, particularly the part of the internet known as "the dark web", where one's identity and locations remain anonymous.

Whether people find themselves on the dark web, primarily used for illegal, under the table operations, they often tend to find themselves in dangerous situations.

Some being far more terrifying than others.
