Hi guys,

I can't move with one sentence, rather with the meaning of the word "share". Okay, here it is.

Person A: I know everything about your problems. About what you're afraid of.

Person B: Yeah, I've got my share of problems. And I don't deny it.

share / share of = part of something that is being shared with other person or group of persons....

But this doesn't make any sense here...Please what's the meaning of this word here?

Just my tips: Yeah, I've got some known problems? / Yeah, I also have a few particular problems????

thanks in advance

Best Regards

The idea is there are a lot of problems in the world, and that everyone has some. We share them. I have my share. You have your share.

The expression 'I've got my share' means 'I have problems just as everyone else does'. It sometimes is an understated way of suggesting that I have 'more than my share'.
