What is the most precious thing in your life and why?

    Oct 2 2013: (I am a Chinese student ,forgive my poor English ability´╝îand you can point out my mistakes,thx.)Maybe being independent is the most thing in my life .Because as for me , from childhood to now ,my parents didn't make many decisions for ,so I have to face many problem on my own.For example ,as a high school stundent , whose aim was all Entrance Examination, I choosed come back home and study by myself .Even though it is a challenge period for me ,but I never regret making that decision, which made me learn many things that would never learn from school ,such as making decision ,self-learning ,and valuing my family .Besides ,in China ,most of family will follow their child to university , but I decided go to university by myself,which was the first leaving hometown in 18 years ,from Hunan Province to Yunnan Province .Even on the way to university ,I was afraid of many things , but I finally arrive there safely , it is also intersting for me . Finally ,it hard to change the subject you major in in university, and it is unfortunately that I am major a subject I didn't like at all, I want to be a translater .So I have to learn English hard by myself .
    So ,in my life ,being independent is most important for me , it let me understand the value of being a human .
