The road to happiness

Extracts from this document...


The road to happiness My name is Sinead Thomson. My life has been one hell of a roller coaster, with enough ups and downs to make anyone nauseas. I guess I shouldn't complain, because that is a common lifestyle for most people. It all started when I was a teenager and it is a familiar fact that every teenager has their fair amount of rows, with there parents. However, one argument was just one to many for me. It was actually quite pathetic; I look back and laugh at what I was arguing about. This sounds silly but I was quarrelling, with my mum, on whether I could wear my suede boots to school. It all ended up with me storming out of the door saying that I was deprived of my freedom and opinion.

I had been gone to long, I could imagine the angry looks on their faces, describing the pain I had put them through. What if they didn't even want me back? They seemed quite content with my sister. They had probably forgotten all about me, now that I had brought so much shame and embarrassment to the household.

She handed the phone over to everyone else, I was so pleased to hear every ones voice on the phone. It seemed to comfort me. They were so concerned, how I could have thought that they didn't care, was beyond me. But I was coming home now, and that was all that mattered. When arriving back home, I couldn't describe my emotions; I was just so overjoyed. My family was so glad and relieved to see me again, and I was delighted to see them in person. After this incident, life went on. I returned back to school, happier than ever. I went on to do a degree. I became a doctor with an income that would make anyone jealous. I now have a wonderful husband and father, and the perfect family of a boy and girl. I look back on what I did and consider that it was a lesson well learnt. Not every ending is always as happy as mine. By Vaneeta Loomba 9T2 ...read more.
