Part 5 Read the passage for a third time and reflect the skills we use
Since I was 12 years old， I've suffered with a condition called Compulsive Hair Pulling. The physical destruction was severe， but the emotional 1. damage was worse. When I was young， no one， 2. including my doctor， knew how to help me. I was alone.
Growing up， I didn't 3. fit in anywhere and I suffered great shame knowing I'd brought this pain upon myself. My hands seemed to have a 4. mind of their own. “What's wrong with me，“ I'd often wonder. Sometimes， people asked about my 5. lack of eyelashes and eyebrows. I was lonely， but I kept people at a distance. However， each night， before I fell asleep， I'd 6. pray for God to send someone who 7. understood.
Then when I was 25， I read a letter， from a mom whose child suffered from Compulsive Hair Pulling. I could 8. hardly believe my eyes. After all these years， I discovered， I was not 9. alone.
At that moment， my journey for 10. healing began. I took small steps at first----telling only a few friends. Some of them tried to understand. Then， they began to share their secrets with me. I learned to see 11. myself the way God saw me， someone deserving love.
One day， my 12. miracle happened. A friend called with wonderful news. She just met a woman with Compulsive Hair Pulling----someone 13. just like me. She gave me her phone number. I was 14. overjoyed. I quickly dialed， and from the minute Christina 15. answered， we began to chat like old friends， both thrilled to find someone who understood our pain. We planned to meet soon， only to find we lived just two blocks away.
We immediately dropped our phones， and in the dark of night， ran outside in our pajamas（睡衣）， where we hugged， cried and talked for hours. I felt I'd just met my long 16. lost twin， someone who understood my 17. pain and struggles. There was no doubt about it. I was looking into the eyes of a miracle. We walked back to my house， and into the light， Christina slowly lifted her long hair 18. revealing the bald spots. Then with a deep breath， I took off my 19. makeup and let her see me as no one else 20. ever had， not even my husband of 10 years. In that moment， I knew， my childhood prayer had been answered.
Yes， it was true. I was not alone.
Part 6 Reflection
Part 7 Ability Development – Add an ending
Yes， it was true. I was not alone. After all these years，
and going through all the pain， struggles and self-doubt，
I finally understand and relieve. I also get that no
matter what hardship you are bearing at the moment，
there is always someone else whose problem is similar
to yours or even worse， so never and ever will you be
alone. No one is perfect， but everyone is unique. Thus
the very thing you need to do is just accept it，
appreciate it， and with a brave heart， embrace your life.
Yes， it was true. I was not alone.
