If there’s one thing 2018 taught me.
It got to be Patience.
I used not to have much patience.
I expected people to understand what I wanted immediately.
My mother used to tell me:
“Do not expect people to be like you. Everyone is different. Even your daughters. Give them a break. Let them enjoy their childhood”.
I used to tutor my eldest daughter every night since her Nursery days.
She was a top student in her class.
However, I stopped setting high standards when my mother told me “let it go”. The child deserves a break.
Any little patience that I had it was used up in the classrooms.
Especially if I handled freshmen.
In 2018, things were beyond my control.
I didn’t like it.
Not even a bit.
But I cannot do anything.
It’s the system.
All must adhere to it.
It was a good thing that my daughters are smart.
They understand it.
Oh how I love them.
Mid of 2018 everything turned out very bright.
And I have learned to enjoy a new profession.
It’s totally different from what I studied and my experience.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think I could actually do a job as this.
But I am loving every minute.
Plus it’s good money.
And less mental stress.
Maybe one reason why I enjoy it.
