发表时间:2017-10-09内容来源:VOA英语学习网

本期内容:

Sometimes we feel that we need to be someone else in order to fit in, be a better mother or wife, or portray an image that we believe everyone else will love. No matter how hard you try to be someone else you will never be good enough. You will do the best and be the happiest only if you stop living by someone else’s standards and start using your unique potential to shine like a light in this world.

参考译文:有时我们会觉得:为了更好融入这世界,我们得扮成别人,比如当个称职的妈妈、妻子,或是扮演我们认为人人都会喜欢的形象。然而,无论你多努力,也永远当不了完美的“别人”。只有抛开别人的标准,挖掘自己的潜力,你才能成为最好、最快乐的自己。

单词及实用短语:

Fit in适应,适合,符合

Live by someone else’s standard 按照别人的标准生活

Unique英 [ juˈni:k ] 美 [ juˈnik ] 唯一的,仅有的; 独一无二的,独特的

例句:She has a unique ability of communicate with animals of all kinds.

她有一种可以跟所有动物交流的独特能力。
