There's a lot of definitions about life. Some says life is beautiful. Some see it as cruel. Some defined it as a wheel, etc.,etc. Now let me ask you, How is life to you so far? As for me, I've been through a lot (ups and downs). As early as six years old, I can already feel I was independent, not only just a mere feeling, my parents are into business, so most of the time they're not at home. Busy making money for their children's future. I was always left at home with nanny who seemed to be not there especially when my parents not around. I remember i even cooked my own food as early as six years old. I went to five different schools when i was in elementary, so what happened was I didn't have a constant friend. But I always look at the positive side of it eventhough its not easy to adjust, I was happy for the fact that i've meet a lot of people and been to different places. Mostly I've been to a lot of downs (as other people see it: like parents always not around, wherein supposed to really be there). But for me, it's all outnumbered by "up" times. Just having my family especially my brothers and sisters who really never left me all the time (is always a happy moment for me)

no life has been perfecty normal for all of us, for if it was perfect, then we should have been in heaven. as you said, life is like a wheel that sometimes you are up and there are times when you're down. each of us has its own peculiar experiences in going through life since birth 'til the day we will die. that's what we call life's reality. however, lessons are learned from our experiences, whether they be bad or good. if you were able to cope up with the pressures in life, well and good, for you are strong, but to those who failed, somehow, there is one 'true friend' ready to help you. As He said in the book of Matthew "Come unto Me you who are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, hear me and be blessed. I am meek and lowly,come and trust My might, for My yoke is easy and My burden is light."

My life so far, if you asked that people will said it's just fine. Cause you have some ups and downs in life. I got my parents with me too, and though no brother and cousins for a few months. But telecomunications helps you to get close to them. My parents also go for work at noon, but they always spent their free time at home, so i don't felt alone. I must give you two thumbs here, cause you really a independent kid, and beside your downs past you becoming a truly independent person. So any downs in your life will eventually leads you into brighter future.

good story,i think that life is bad or good depend on our view. sometime the bad situation it's the best opportunity to make us grow and to make us up to the next level. so problem and opportunity it's like coin. one side is problem and the other side is opportunity. so take the opportunity from our problem. thank you
