Counseling allows me to understand what I want to achieve. Parents’ expectations have put lots of stress on me and made me feel anxious about school. Through playing mobile games, I feel close to my friends and confident when I won the game. Gradually, I became so indulgence in the games. With my counselor’s assistance, I am now re-establishing communications with my family. I hope that our relationship will keep on improving and I will become a mature person.
During the counseling sessions, I felt being accepted by my counselor and I could better understand my thoughts and feelings. In the past, there was not much communications between me and my family even we were all living under the same roof. Therefore, very often, I chose to chat with friends on the internet forums to kill time. After counseling, I would try to understand my family and who I am, and I hope to become a person with clear goals.
