Talk about a time when you had to make a difficult choice | IELTS Speaking Answer

When I was growing up my parents were having problems in their relationship and for a couple of years things were not good at home; the atmosphere was terrible and they seemed to be constantly fighting with each other. My sister and I were very worried at the time that our parents would end up separating – which they did eventually.

That was a really difficult time in life because so many things changed, but as often happens, there was a positive side to this also – our parents actually became happier people when they were not actually living together. They were like different people all of a sudden, happier and more carefree, but still our parents.

Anyway, as things changed, one of the difficult things we had to decide was where to live. My sister and I were both old enough to have a say in this, so we had to choose between living with our mother or with our father. This was not easy, and we both spent a long time discussing it with each other and trying to decide which was the best option for everybody. We tried to take into account everybody’s feelings, practical aspects of where we would live, and also what we had planned for the future. But it was also a highly emotional time for everybody which didn’t make the decision any easier.

In the end we both decided to stay with our mother because we felt that she needed our support more than our father. And one of the main factors that helped us make the final decision was the fact that I had plans to study abroad, which would have meant that our mother would’ve been all alone if we had decided to move in with our father. So we decided it wasn’t worth all the upheaval – and chose to remain with our mother.

As for consequences, it meant that we didn’t see as much of our father as we had in the past, but at least when we did the atmosphere was much better and we were glad that they had stopped fighting with each other all the time. So that was a time when I had to make a difficult choice.
