Were you ever so mad that you wanted to shout? Or maybe, you were very nervous because something bad happened? Think of a time when you had strong feelings. How did you calm down? If you were mad, maybe you talked through your feelings. The other person listened, and then you both felt better. If you were nervous, a friend might have told you about a time when they were also nervous. Then, you were able to move on.

Emotions can be very strong sometimes, but there’s always a way to get over it. When a person gets over something, they stop having strong feelings. Sometimes, something happens to make the situation better. Or perhaps, a lot of time passes, and you don’t feel the same anymore. Letting time pass can almost guarantee that you will get over your emotions. A little time and space helps us all to move on.

I got over many things, which means things that I don’t want to remember and really want to forget.           :D

It was really difficult for me to get over the war in my country. Thought I moved to the place where there’s no any military actions, I couldn’t believe that was happenning in my place for some time. Now the war is still not over. But I decided just to move on and hope for better. My friends helped me, when we talked things thruough. I had some hobbies, too.


I understand that many people I know have bigger problems because of this situation in our country. But it doesn’t mean you have to stop doing anything and be sad all the time. Do whatever you can to make things better.

Yes. It was difficult for me to get over that my father was gone when I was 18 years old. I couldn’t believe the fact. I would thought that my father only was going to a far place and he would come back soon.  I lived my fantasy in that period.


I studied harder and harder.  When I sank in learning I would forget all other things including my father.


 


 Oh. Now I have accepted everything happened in my life after about twenty years.


 


The second big difficult thing happened about the year of my 27ages when I was in the failure of the first love which lasted about 4 years.  I couldn’t bear there was no boyfriend who I so loved  in my life. Though  I knew there was impossible between I and he.  I loved the sports in that time. I was playing the table tennis ball in at any leisure time.  When I felt exhausted I felt relax.


 



Oh, now I think the difficult is not a bad thing when I think of the past hard times.  The first I received the college admission notice and the second I got the playing ball skills.
