A Lovely BearI still remember on my 8th birthday, my aunt gave me a stuffed bear which I loved. I felt very happy and appreciated it because I had always wished to have a bear like but my mom didn’t have enough money to buy it for me.

Finally, I got one. Sometimes, I felt sad when I saw my friends get everything they wanted and I didn’t but I also believe that I’m lucky and happy.

This bear has been with me for a long time. After 8 years, I have had a lot of memories with him because whenever I feel sad or happy, I talk to him and hug him. Since I was small, I have had a lot of sad memories which I didn’t feel comfortable with sharing, so I only would hug him and cry.

And now, I need him to be with me so that I can sleep in the night. It became my habit. He doesn’t look as cute as before but to me, he is still the most beautiful bear. I will never leave him. I’ll keep him by my side.

Life teaches me to honor what I have and not to compare with others because we can never feel happy that way.Be happy and accept what you have.
