"...few weeks HAVE been difficult..." is correct.

 

"Few weeks" is plural, so the corresponding verb form should also be plural.

Singular: It has been - For example, "This book has been missing from the library for a year."

Plural: They have been - For example, "All the graduates have been accepted by universities."

 

If you were referring to one week only (rather than the "last few weeks"), you would use "has."

For example, "My last week has been difficult..."
