图画类型 图画说明 写作主题
As is vividly depicted in the photo, a father and his son in a costume are having a conversation, which successfully attracts our attention. What makes the photo more attractive is the fact that the kid says unhappily, “Dad, my classmates consider Chinese opera boring”, while his father replies, “It is good enough as long as you like it.” Clearly, the photo has shown an implied meaning that it is important to be confident, which needs to be given further analysis.
What has been conveyed in the above picture is that self-confidence plays a vital role in our daily life. To begin with, during our lifetime, there will always be occasions when we encounter challenges and get into rather difficult situations. The main advantage of self-confidence is that it gives us the strength to overcome difficulties and the resolution to solve problems. Besides, it is such a positive attitude that drives us to move forward and achieve our goals. Even if sometimes things don’t go your way, you still believe that they eventually will.
Self-confidence isn’t inborn but acquired. It can be learned, practiced, and mastered—just like any other skill. Once you acquire it, everything in your life is going to change for the better.
(1)坚持自己的兴趣爱好 stick to your interests
(2)文化自信 strengthen cultural confidence
(3)鼓励培养个人兴趣 encourage personal interests
With confidence, you’ll be able to be freed from your negative thoughts and take action in line with your values.
Sticking to personal interests may be the deciding factor for some because a career choice based on interests can bring them personal satisfaction and professional success.
