❤️‍🔥令人異常感同身受的成長故事 — Friends 系列

以下原本是我往年寫的兩篇文章,曾分別於 2020年11月6日以及 2021年8月21日 發表在 BuyBookBook Facebook page。

今天突然讀到,再次激起了「心中的漣漪」,

腦海中林夕動人的歌詞和王菲空靈的聲音不斷迴旋,

於是決定整理成一篇,分享在此。


😬雖然這樣形容好老土,但 Real Friends, Best Friends 是上次大貨一到,就被一搶而空的書。

😏也許是當時剛好有讀者分享了良好的閱讀感受,😏也許是因為口碑效應,😏也許剛好遇到了網上書展……總之我之前認為是「天時地利人和」而已。

但當這次大貨到,🧐我終於有機會認真拜讀時,才發現能被「一搶而空」並不是僅靠「天時地利人和」的,確實是有超強的實力, 非常吸引!

🥹連第二日要帶女兒參加幼稚園面試的媽媽,也忍不住爭分奪秒一口氣讀完了 Real Friends。

😳然後後知後覺地發現原來作者是大名鼎鼎的 The Princess In Black 的作者之一,難怪不同凡響!

 

📕第一集 Real friends

😔When best friends are not forever…… 小學階段孩子們真正在意的大概都不是成績,而是同學、朋友間的微妙關係吧。是否有好朋友,是否受歡迎,是否被重視,大概都比考試分數更影響心情。即使到了中學、大學,甚至職場,人際關係的好壞依然會影響我們的情緒。

👩🏼‍💻作者將自己小學階段和同學朋友們的故事真實地、繪聲繪色地呈現出來; 渴望有朋友,渴求被接納,厭惡被欺負,那種成長的苦澀令人心疼而又感同身受; 終於被認可後那種快樂又如雨後陽光,令人激動而又充滿希望!🌈

📘 第三集 Friends Forever

來到13歲的階段了。

friends 3 cover

隨著年紀的增長,煩惱也愈來愈多,經歷越來越豐富(所以頁數也越來越多)。除了是否贏得友誼,還有是否受到異性的青睞,是否獲得演出的角色,是否得到試鏡的機會,是否取得學業的成就,是否勝出各種比賽或競選……

正如題目——It’s complicated.

每位從青春花樣年華走來過來的人都清楚,那是何等酸甜苦辣,五味雜陳!

作者用樸實的語言,娓娓道出你也許經歷過但未必敢說出來的真實體驗。

未必會有大快人心的結尾,

🤔但你一定能體會到——

⛵️生活總有高低起伏,成長路上也不可能總一帆風順。

🌥️「風雨過後不一定有美好的天空,不是天晴就會有彩虹」。

🌫️然而這就是生活!

🤔你也一定能感受到——

You are not alone! You are so brave!

📝正如作者在後記中寫道:

“You’re powerful and are capable of doing great things.”

“Dealing with worries, fear, and sadness, and still getting up and doing stuff every day — that’s incredibly brave!”

“Life moves on. Feeling change. People change. We’re never stuck. There is always hope.”

 

🥲媽媽再次濕潤了眼睛。

👦🏻👧🏻希望我們的孩子們都能在成長的路上,

💪🏻勇敢地面對生活的酸甜苦辣!

 

🌈借林夕的歌詞——

「但願你的眼睛 只看得到笑容

但願你流下每一滴淚 都讓人感動

但願你以後每一個夢 不會一場空」
