To get out of control of his father,
Since childhood he kept asking for becoming adult and freedom as soon as possible,
I never noticed that my father’s been getting ahead of life for a long time
I lose sight of the value of living my life in my mid 20 ‘s.
What is the meaning of life with myself? After entering the labyrinth, when you give up that you have no value to live,
I encountered the fact that I did not choose anything my life alone. I longed to want to walk my life with my own feet, and I started my life in London where no one knows anyone who will live alone abroad that was longing for me.
From the situation that you can not buy a ticket because you can not tell the destination at the station,
I will challenge to obtain certification of accountants in the UK. I also work hard as sports and suffering because I decided on my own, I spend nearly sixyears in London.
Japanese painful it painful it is 2 times,
Joy and pleasure are more than 10 times what I felt in Japan ,
I realized that living is a pleasure and returned home.
To convey the joy of walking on your own foot with your own legs,
Aim for a professional coach.
