    coping - dealing - facing

    Please check these. Thanks.

    1. I had huge difficulty coping/dealing with this job.
    2. Coping/dealing with this situation/problem was causing me a lot of trouble.
    3. Coping/dealing with this situation/problem was too much for my circumstances.
    4. Facing this problem proofed to be more than complicated.

    3. Coping/dealing with this situation/problem was too much for my circumstances. "for my circumstances" is not natural here.
    4. Facing this problem proofed proved to be more than complicated. See correction.
    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    @emsr2d2 thanks for your help.
    I know I can say the following.
    The car/coat is far too expensive for my circumstances/situation.
    Instead of "for my circumstances" in sentence three, what else could I say?

    I'd say "for me" or "for my budget."
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
