how to say it on this situation

I wanted to say somebody that I was facing hard times which now is over. (since some years or some point in my life I had seen bad times )

Is this phrase correct according to the above context



kindly suggest other ways to say the same.


Hello, Learner.

(1) I will let others answer your question.

(2) I just thought that you would like to know about a mistake that many learners make:

“I wanted to TELL somebody that …”



‘have been’ is the correct form, Learner.
‘been’ would not be correct in your sentence.
hard times, situations and difficulties are all appropriate.

many thanks beee! :slight_smile:
