March 14 – suffer

☆  suffer  つらい思いをする


If you suffer, it means that you are badly affected by an event or situation. Saying goodbye usually involves some suffering – at least for the person or people being left behind. I remember when I was 16 coming to Japan for a homestay for the first time. I was so excited, but I’m sure my parents were worried and suffered a lot, thinking about whether I was OK or not.

The people that get left behind are the ones that suffer the most, right? My oldest son is going on a camp at the end of this month. It’s for three days, usually his school camps are just one night, so there is no time to miss him or feel sad! I wonder how we will go this time?? Will three days be long enough to miss him? I think so, but I don’t think we will suffer too much over just three days…
