Let's get personal, I would like to share my experience with you all. I am a girl who dislike being left out (who does?).
There was a time when I just transferred to a new entire school, with no friends but classmates, it was a total mess. I remember I often had branch alone in the canteen during break time, however I still managed to make some friends but still, there were still emptiness in my heart. When I was still in my old school, I was a timid girl with extremely close friends, I didn't know what to expect when I came to this entire new environment. How do I start over? What should I do?
Eventually, I learned to be independent in a hard way, accepting the fact that I have to stay strong to cope every problems as much as possible. After months passed by, it was a terrified month for most girls - National Service, but I was eager to join in this service. Why? I just want to start over, a fresh new start, not to be that old timid girl who can't handle any problems. I want to be strong and an independent lady. It succeed every well, I had great months with my NS mates. =) Soon, I started to mix around with different people and now, I realised I have gained a lot from that past memory.
You see, it's okay to be weak. In life, you might bumped onto something which you cannot handle it. The willingness to learn and be strong would indeed, help you to become a better person. Being a university student in a diversity learning place has actually made me even stronger, I have great course mates and friends!
Whenever I am sad, I would think about this. How has I become after so many years? Telling myself that everything is going to be okay, just look at how bad I was in years back and I managed to cope with it.
Be optimistic, I told myself. Everything is going to be fine. :)
