What is wrong with the use of "everyone" in this sentence?
Everyone has their own version of adversity.
'Everyone has' is a singular construction. This is followed by the plural pronoun 'their', and that is the problem. You could change 'their' to 'his or her', but this is awkward. An easier solution would be to use a plural subject to match with 'their'.
All people have their own version of adversity.
