Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Mostexperiences in our lives that seemed difficult at the time become valuablelessons for the future. Use reasons and specific examples to support ouranswer.
Some people assume that most experiences in our lives that seemed difficultat the time will become valuable lessons for the future. I agree with it. In myopinion, most difficult experiences we go through now will help develop ourpersonalities, such as persistence, independence and confidence, which are mostvaluable for our future.
Persistence is the first lesson most difficult experiences willteach us. When I was a little girl, teachers and parents always taught me thatif you want to succeed in our future, then you must learn how to keep ourselvespersisting on our goals. From that time, I know no matter what kind of dreams Ihold, I must persist in realizing them. For me, entering a university is a verygood example. During my high school, I felt math was the most difficult subjectfor me. I almost gave up my dreams because of my poor math scores. However mymom asked me not to give up my plan and encourage me to keep going on. FinallyI succeeded in entering a prestigious university.
After entering the university, I learned my second lesson -independence. It was a really difficult time for me because I was never faraway from my parents for such a long time, what's more, I need to take care ofmyself not only about living conditions but also about my study.
At the first period I really didn't know how to adapt myself intothe new environment, it was no surprise that I got lost during that time.Luckily, I have my parents and friends' encouragement to help me go throughthat quite difficult time. Now I am working in Singapore and I think what makesme get used to this fast society is due to my college's experiences. I believethat I will become more independent than before.
Building enough confidence is another lesson the difficultexperiences teaches me. Not everyone is born to be confident. What helps mebuild my confidence is also through most failures I went through. There is anold saying " failure is the mother of success". Yes, it is true!Through failures we can learn what we are short of and gain a lot of lessonsfrom others. Building confidence is a gradual process. It takes time and youmay see our improvement a few years later. I think the chance of getting thisjob greatly relies on myself to show much confidence that I can do this jobwell.
