    It took me ten long years

    It took me ten long years to finally settle my towering debts.

    This unanticipated turn of event helped me meet lifeís challenges head-on.

    Having overcome some of my lifeís struggles, Iím compelled to say that Iíve indeed outdone myself.

    If it werenít for my neediness to succeed and the uplifting words of wisdom from my circle of true friends (it was a small circle indeed!), I would not have sprung back.
    Please point out the errors.tq

    I would pluralize "event".
