Work is never completely pleasant, occasionally, we go through hard times at work. I am supposed to be one of the very lucky ones to be doing a job that I like. Having my passion as my job is wonderful. But even for me, work can be very difficult sometimes, I can only imagine for those who don't have their passion as their profession!
At work, we are less considerate. And how hard it is to be perfect at work! Thus, the words that are difficult to listen to, stays in your mind for a few days, a week, a month, or even years. Perhaps, those are words that could make you more capable, push you to improvements, possibly a wake-up call to let you see things from another angle. Or, it simply comes from bad luck. You may find yourself just in front of your boss the minute after he is informed that his wife is sick.
When hard times come, we can only 硬着頭皮做. You know that it's gonna be a difficult day. You have been cogitating the difficult tasks and hardships of the day, and that day finally comes. You have no choice, you can only 硬着頭皮做. Once the day is over, whether the problems are solved or not, you have made it through, and you can finally just sit down and enjoy some nice food at dinner.
I just turned 22 a few weeks ago. This evening, I was told that, before I know it, I will be 32. By then, I will have less freedom than today. All that I want to do, to try, to enjoy in life, now is the best time.
At the end of the day, our job is no big deal. Not being capable at work, having a few enemies, being scolded..... we all go through these things and it is completely OKAY. What really matters in life, today at 22 years old, I think it is the relationships that we have, our family, the person that we truly are, what we are experiencing in life.
