There was a boy who was sent to a boarding school. He used to be the brightest student in his class. He was at the top in every competition. But things changed after that. His grades started dropping. He hated being in a group. He was lonely all the time. He felt worthless and that no one loved him.
His parents began to worry. But even they did not know what was wrong. So his dad decided to visit the school and talk with him.
They sat on the bank of the lake near the school. The father started asking him casual[随便的] questions about his classes, teachers and sports. Then he asked, “Do you know, son, why I am here today?”
The boy said, “To check my grades?”
“No, no,” his dad replied. “I am here to tell you that you are the most important person for me. I want to see you happy. I don’t care about grades. I care about you. I care about your happiness. YOU ARE MY LIFE.”
Now the boy had everything he wanted. He knew there was someone on this Earth who cared for him deeply. He meant the world to someone.
Thanks a lot, Dad. YOU ARE MY LIFE.
