25岁女生Jinna Yang的爸爸由于胃癌于两年前去世。爸爸去世后,在纽约的Jinna发现很难再应付作为一个企业职员的正常生活。她在博客上写到,“在外人看来,我似乎拥有一切。可是外人没有看到的是呈现在我身体、心灵、思想和灵魂的每一英寸上的人生经历的全部代价。”

25-year-old Jinna Yang lost her father to stomach cancer two years ago. After her father’s passing, Jinna found it hard to cope with her regular life as a corporate employee in New York. “From the outside looking in, I seemed to have it all,” she wrote on her blog. “What people didn’t see was the toll the combination of life events took on every inch of my body, heart, mind and soul.”


她还写到,“我几乎到达失去生存欲望的程度,我放弃了我的梦想。对自己爱的人和朋友漠不关心。我还因此得了脱发症并以惊人的速度掉发。”Jinna发现他的父亲为支撑家庭,放弃了旅行和打高尔夫的梦想,她为此深深后悔。因为在爸爸去世后的两年时间里,Jinna从没有真正处理好对生活的感受。

“I had reached the point where I lost the will to live,” she wrote on her blog. “I gave up my dreams. I shut myself off from my loved ones and close friends. I developed alopecia and lost my hair at an alarming rate.” Jinna realized that she deeply regretted the fact that her father sacrificed his dreams of traveling and playing golf to provide for the family. For almost two years after her father’s death, she never truly dealt with her feelings.


但是在某一天清晨,她发现自己再也承受不了如此多的压力。她辞了工作,结束了5年的恋爱,退租了自己居住的公寓,将自己80%的衣服卖掉后便买了一张单程的机票,带着爸爸的人形纸板前往冰岛。

But she woke up one morning and decided that the stress was just too much to handle. She then quit her job, ended her 5-year-long relationship, declined to renew the lease on her apartment and sold 80 percent of her ‘disgustingly huge closet’ for cash. She bought a one-way ticket to Iceland with a cardboard cutout of her father.


“就算他不在这里,我也相信爸爸始终与我同在。”Jinna在博客写道。“为了与大家分享爸爸的故事,抚慰继母、22岁的弟弟和9岁的妹妹,以及我自己,我带着爸爸的人形纸板周游欧洲并在各个名胜前合影。”

“Even though he is not here in the flesh, I knew he was with us in spirit,” she wrote. “To share his story, and to help bring peace to my stepmother, my 22-year-old brother, my 9-year-old sister, and myself, I took him with me all over Europe to be photographed together in front of some of the world’s most iconic destinations.”


子欲养而亲不在,虽然Jinna的行为很感人,但为什么我们不能在父母还健康的时候,就带他们完成他们未曾完成的梦想呢?
