双语美文:自由生活的权力,比什么都重要

It's not easy to live and work in a big city, 'cause the competition is so fierce and you can barely balance your job and your life.

在大城市生活并不容易,因为竞争非常激烈,你几乎没有办法平衡工作与生活。

It's not easy to live in a small city, 'cause everyone around you will think they have a say in how you live and you're basically living your life for others.

在小城市生活也不容易,因为你身边的每个人都觉得他们在你的生活中有话语权,而你基本是在为别人而活。

I live in one of the busiest city in the world and I just had a dinner with a former classmate several days ago.

我住在全球最繁忙的城市之一,几天前我刚刚和以前的同班同学吃了饭。

She gave up. And she had decided to go back home.

她放弃了。她决定要回老家。

"Sad." I thought. But I didn't stop her, because it was her own choice.

“悲哀啊。”我当时想。不过我没有阻止她,因为这是她自己的选择。

I, on the other hand, have a well paid job. So my life is quite good in my point of view.

而我,有一份薪水不错的工作。所以在我看来,我的生活还挺好的。

But I, too, had my tough days in the first few years after I came here.

不过,我曾经也一样,在刚来这座城市的那几年也曾过着艰辛的日子。

And even now, sometimes I got overwhelmed by the workload.

而即使现在,有时候我也觉得被工作压得喘不过气来。

But I conquered them. And they made me stronger.

但我战胜了它们。而且,它们让我变得更强了。

I know it's hard to live in such a big city.

我知道在大城市生活不容易。

And I know it's also hard to live in a small city like my hometown, just in a different way.

我也知道在一个像我家乡一样的小城市里生活并不容易,只是不容易的方式不同。

But I chose here because it has the very thing that I cherish the most: the freedom to live my own life.

但我选择了这里,因为这里有我最珍视的东西:过自己生活的自由。
