Describe a situation when you did not tell others the truth
You should say:
Where it happened
Why it happened
When it happened
And explain how you feel about it
When I was pursuing my postgraduate study abroad and only get to see my family and friends in my hometown at most once a year, homesickness could be extremely overwhelming(势不可挡的).
I did not want my parents to worry about me, because I thought I was a big girl, and I could handle it by myself. So, when video-chatting with family members and old friends, I just told them the good stuff in my life. Even when they asked me how I felt, I would simply tell them that everything worked perfectly fine.
But when ignored, this depressive emotion would gradually eat your positive feelings away and leave you miserable. So, I came up with some ways to overcome this feeling. Homesickness often comes when you feel disconnected with your surroundings. So I thought the best bet(最好的办法)was to establish strong ties with your new friends. Also, I tried hard to figure out what I was going to do as a daily or weekly routine. I did not follow a strict schedule like Sheldon Cooper. However, I made it my routine to cook yourself a great breakfast, and incorporated something fun and interactive like meeting up with friends for a drink or a sport game on a Saturday afternoon, to spice up my life(为生活增添趣味). Sometimes I had a little chat with family members and friends, but still tried to avoid being too clingy(粘人).
But later, I found it was necessary to keep negative feeling to yourself. Just talk about your joys as well as your sorrows. Surely the problems won't be solved right away, but you will feel relieved afterwards. Homesickness is not necessarily(不一定)negative. It helps you understand who you are and what you need. If dealt with properly it can make you a better person.
