In the above picture, there is a little boy in opera costume, wearing a mask, who looks like the Monkey King Son Goku, a classic character in The Journey to the West. He is having a conversation with his father, saying, “Dad, many of my classmates think that acting in an opera is boring.” His father replies, “You like it, right? That is enough.”
The message conveyed in the picture is that young people should stick to their right choice instead of being influenced by others’ comments because people tend to choose what they like, in which they may do better. Nowadays, a proportion of young people give up their choice just because their parents or friends don’t think it is good. But as the saying goes, “One man’s meat is another man’s poison.” As is known to all, people are more likely to stick to their own choice, long enough to eventually achieve success. Take the girl from Hunan province as an example. She got a high score on Gaokao, which would have made it possible for her to choose almost any popular major in a top university. But her interest is in archaeology and since childhood her dream has been to be an archeologist. So she finally chose to study archeology in university, a less popular major in the eyes of many, ignoring what other people might think about her choice.
Sticking to our right choice is a vital quality because people tend to choose what they like and they are more likely to do better in what they like. Thus, parents and teachers should promote the importance of this quality among the young. Young people should be encouraged to stick to their choice so that they can realize their dream as soon as possible.
