Life's hard, thats why I'm hubbing

Updated on May 29, 2010

Life is tough sometimes,

I don't know about the rest of you, but things haven't exactly worked out for me as I had hoped this last year. It becomes increasingly easy to get down on one's self. Sometimes I think to myself "why me!?" But then when I sit down, and really think about it, I soon realize I'm being ridiculous. I have so much to be thankful for, and so much that has happened in this supposedly
"shitty" year has actually be amazing. I managed to graduate from college, move to Japan, marry my long time girlfriend, and even find work despite the awful economic situation gripping the world. When I stack all those things up against the crap that hasn't worked out, I can't help but laugh at myself for being such a "negative Nancy."

Hubpages is another one of those positive things that I discovered last year. It looks like I have not done much with my account, but actually I have been lurking and reading almost daily the fantastic hubs that come out. Lately though, I've felt that I should start hubbing and become more active in this awesome community, and that hubpages can become an outlet for the stress and depression that I feel from time to time.

Like many people who have joined hubpages, I joined to earn some cash, but what I've found here is a lot more than a money making scheme. I love logging on and just reading about what people are interested in. Every day I find some new tip or some great new idea worth exploring further. Maybe someday I'll get good enough at hubbing that I'll earn some cash, but in the mean time I'm just enjoying the journey.

      Yeah exactly Joni. That kind of "why me?" attitude never gets anyone anywhere. Instead of complaining, I've decided to hub, and study and improve myself.

      I used to ask 'why me' too until I realized I needed to turn the question around and ask, 'why not me?' I, too, have joined hubs because of the money making aspect but instead I have found the community here on HubPages has fascinated me.

      Such an insightful hub, vaguesan, I, too, have had my disappointments and I feel sure hubbing will reduce that tension you are feeling.

      Congratualtions on what you have done well, things will come good again.
