hi everyone, could you help me check which one is correctly used in the following two sentences? one is wrote by myself and another one is my friend's suggestion.

I felt so hard in this environment. I then thought of when Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt.

    Both are acceptable, but "the time" makes it sound like a casual anecdote, which perhaps isn't the tone you want to set.

    I have no idea what "I felt so hard in this environment" would mean.
