Hello, L.L.F readers! A few months have already passed since the beginning of this semester. How has your school life been? For me, after I became a sophomore I studied for the exams, entered the 'English press', went to MT in my department, and started volunteering as a 'hearing-impaired student's assistant'. So, I've met new people through these experiences. At school, most of you would have met new people and made relationships with them like me. I know many freshmen are concerned about relationships with friends and seniors at University. The same is true for students in every grade at University. Human relationships are unpredictable and complicated. So, I suffered a tiring and dramatic incident during this semester regarding relationships with familiar people in school.
What would you do if your closest male friend and closest female friend dated suddenly and secretely then broke up quickly? Everyone has heard bad consequences of couples in the same club, work, and department after a break up. I became so embarrassed and in an awkward, middle position when I heard the news suddenly. They each told me oppoisite stories about their relationship to make themsleves sound good. So, I couldn't clearly know what the truth was. I felt a lot of heartache for a long time after I heard both of their stories because each of their stories, and among them the stories related to me were shocking. I also regretted that I accepted her request to introduce him to her as an acquaintance. After this incident, my relationships with her and him got into difficult. It took a long time to come to finish this incident well.
However, through this experience, I learned many lessons. I learned how to form various relationships more wisely, how i should live and what are the wrong things to do when starting a romantic relationship. It was so hard and big experience during this semester, but it was an opportunity for me to mature.
Nobody is perferct; everyone has faults. So, although I was confused because that was the first experience like that in my life, I want to get over it and live healthily and happily. I want to focus on the things I should do, spend the rest of the semester positively and enjoy the upcoming school festival! Also, I thought that i will treat people in university with integrity as well although it is true that friends who meet at university are different from middle and high school friends. So, if you also have been through a hard experience like me, why don't you think of it as a chance for your personal growth?
