FIGHTING

Everyone fights.

Whether it’s with your family, your friends or your enemy. You may hate having that awkwardness but one way or another, you will have to deal with them. A personal experience that I went through today was with my mom. We got into an argument about my academics in school. If you don’t already know, I transferred to a new school in a new country, new continent. It was and still is extremely difficult for me to adjust because I used to live in Canada. I am used to slacking off and still getting an A, boys and girls sitting with each other during lunch, a very defined social hierarchy, and more. After I came here, I noticed that there is 10 times the pressure. Everyone seems to be attending academies almost everyday, and studying until 3 in the morning every night. As I was saying before, my mom took me to this french academy. The woman there was constantly saying the same thing ‘your daughter needs a lot of work..her old school didn’t do it right’. I understand that the teacher wanted to be honest but was it really necessary to say it in a demeaning tone at least 5 times? No, I think not. I tried to indirectly send her a message saying ‘I get it..you can stop now‘. Apparently, I made it way too obvious..As I arrived home, my mom told me that it was completely embarrassing to sit there and listen to a stranger criticize me. My first thought: “How do you think I felt?”. Of course no one is able to completely 100% understand the mind of another, but putting yourself in the shoes of someone else is a¬† skill you should have. She continuously criticized me and made me feel guilty. I finally understood this saying: “The straw that breaks my back” because everything just kept piling. Once I had enough, I just broke out in tears and went out for some air. I called one of my bestest friends Jung L***. He talked to me about a lot of things and he helped me get through this. I would like to thank him and let him know that I am extremely grateful of what he does for me. Of course after my mom and I made up after but I’m still a little bit upset.

Things to learn from this experience: BEHIND EVERY SINGLE CLOUD IS A SILVER LINING.
