    $\begingroup$ @Phylyp It's one word to solve all 4. $\endgroup$ Jan 19, 2018 at 13:35
  • $\begingroup$ Does the three "?" mean it's a three letters word? $\endgroup$ Jan 19, 2018 at 14:37

I believe the answer is



"For dear life".
Oh dear!
Dear me!
Dear diary...

  • $\begingroup$ And I thought about dear when I was writing my answer, gosh darn it... $\endgroup$ Jan 19, 2018 at 15:53
  • $\begingroup$ Yep. You got it. +1 $\endgroup$ Jan 21, 2018 at 20:30

I'm just starting here, so this may be wrong, but it's worth a shot:



4(For) my Life
O(H) My!
My Profile
My Notebook (Diary?)

    $\begingroup$ This is... a perfectly good fit... the answer I'm looking for is not 'My' but I can totally see where you're coming from. I could be awfully nit-picky and pedantic, but in reality it looks like I may have made this puzzle too broad (>1 perfectly viable answer) +1 $\endgroup$ Jan 19, 2018 at 14:00

    $\begingroup$ My apologies. I've added a specific word length to the puzzle in a poor attempt to patch up a broad question. I say for all to hear that this answer by GustavoGabriel is invalidated only by my incompetence and is deserving of your up-vote. ...Also; to anyone who may point out to Gus that his answer does not contain 4 letters, I wish upon you all the things that people often say they "wouldn't wish upon their worst enemy" (playbuzz.com/arielw/…). $\endgroup$ Jan 19, 2018 at 14:45
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you @BrentHackers, I'll try to solve it with your newest edit :) $\endgroup$ Jan 19, 2018 at 14:49

I think it's:



(1) Life mushroom (2) Coca-life is sugar free (3) SO life resume (4) Diary contains parts of your life
