It might be a necessary process for everyone to encounter life difficulties. Facing any ups or downs, feeling distressed at the first moment when getting bad news. But, does anyone determine to try their best to conquer the problem and get through it instead of giving up at the first moment? To be honest, I can’t. When friends around me are having some tough problems, I would persuade myself that I wouldn’t be so unlucky to have the same problems; these kinds of bad things would never happen to me. Until one day, one of these incredible things really happened to me…
Take myself for example. Nowadays, anchors on the TV programs always report on who is divorced after being caught having an affair, or show children needing some help due to their parents’ ill relationship or death, which leads to poverty. In the beginning, all of these seemed irrelevant to me, until last year, when my parents separated after a serious argument. When I first received this news from my aunt at school, tears rolling down my cheeks without control while my face felling lower and lower, even I was watching the performance of English Dramas in the hall. I sobbed for about twenty minutes, blaming my constant arguments with my little brother, making my mother so angry that she decided to leave. After that, I wanted to be alone, rather than talk to anyone in this society. My heart was bleeding with sorrow, slowly, insidiously and painfully. “Nothing happens until it happens to you.” How I desired an end to it all! What’s worse, my mom attempted suicide the next day by taking a large amount of sleeping pills! Luckily, after an emergency rescue by the doctors, she finally regained consciousness. However, she’d made up her mind to live in another place.
After a few months of adjusting and my school teacher’s counseling, I felt much better and gradually felt more optimistic. I realized that there must have been some problems between my parents for a long period, troubling them even when they tried to sit down in peace and talk to each other patiently. I knew they must have their own ineffable difficulties, such as the different approaches toward daily life, money, or even my studies. I changed my way of thinking and survived the tough time. And now, I am getting used to my life without Mom.
