Narrative Essay on One Thing I Would Like to Change about My Childhood
One Thing I Would Like to Change about My Childhood
I had a happy and interesting childhood. As computers weren’t that popular among people and I didn’t have brothers or sisters, I spent almost all the time in the streets playing with other children. When I went to the kindergarten, I met two friends, with whom I started to play and spend every free minute I had. I was really happy till the moment when one of my friends went away to live in the other country.
I still remember that moment. I just couldn’t believe my ears: Helen was going away for such a long period of time – 3 years, or even more. I didn’t know what to do and with whom to spend my free time, as with the other friend I wasn’t so close. Still, people say that time heals all the wounds, and I didn’t have another choice than to try to recollect myself and live further.
After some time passed, I managed to overcome my disappointment to some extent. Helen wrote letters to me, but our correspondence was not as often as I wanted. I always was too busy to sit down and write a letter, and I think that she had the same problem. Thus, there were letters once a month, but they were a real happiness for me. I remember how I waited for the desired letter after I sent mine and how I was upset when I didn’t receive the answer for a long period of time.
Now 8 years passed from that moment, but I still want to change this event in my life. Today there are several people with whom I like to spend my time, but I don’t have such friends as Helen. I just didn’t meet such people, or, maybe, I was afraid of meeting them, as I just knew I didn’t want to go through the same nightmare I did when my best friend went away.
I still value this person very much and dream of her coming back, but every year she starts to think about it, but something stops her from doing it and at these moments I feel really depressed. However, I start to get used to it, as I just can’t do anything about it. But I wish I could.
