Michelle's tears and joy
天意弄人，米雪正值拍攝《女人最痛》之時，卻遇上自己一生中的最痛。今年 2月 16日，尹志強不幸病逝，米雪向劇組請假整理情緒，一天後旋即投入工作。
Life's cruel twist of fate, during Michelle's filming of <<Beauty knows no Pain>>, she encounters one of her most painful period in her life. On 16 February this year, Yin ZhiJiang passed away from his illness, Michelle took leave from the filming to settle her emotions, and returned the very next day to continue filming.
"The most painful time I would encounter would be the death of my love ones, for example, my boyfriend who recently passed away." However, regardless of the intensity of the pain, we will still have to face it, From the book <<Life's Aesthetics>>, Michelle encourages everyone with : [Dealing with pain, all the theories about dealing with life and death will not apply here, it is for example, if you get slapped by someone, you will feel the pain. We can only accept the pain, it does not mean if you are strong, you will not feel the pain. Face the pain, facing death is the same time, tears, worries are all part of being human. However in the midst of this pain, we can still maintain a positive attitude towards life.] -- Referring to <<Life's Aesthetics>> chapter four: Accepting the pain.
Michelle continued with [I am not sure if it is because I am an optimist, sickness and death are part of life, I was mentality prepared for this event to happen. My father passed away when I was twenty, back then, I don't even think about grieving, until a few years ago, my mother passed away, it was also very painful for me. When I was younger, I had to make money to feed the family, now that everything has stabilized, I wanted to give them a better life, but it is not possible any more!]
It is when everyone is worried if Michelle is able to physically and mentality carry on, Michelle's body language seems to be assuring everyone that "I am okay", she is thankful to all her colleagues who showed their concern for her, she said [I know my colleague loves me, I don't want them to worry about me, to those who saw my performance during the filming of the serial will know that I am okay, don't worry about me. ] Michelle has been courageous and rational in facing the loss :[Even if I remain at home, take off for a week, then what? That doesn't stop me from feeling the loss, I will still have to face it sooner or later, if that is the case, why don't I return back to work? Reason number one, work can fill up my time and my mind, number two, I want to finish my work as soon as possible. To me, one day's rest is more than enough!]
During the time, work is the remedy, other than temporarily forgetting the pain, her professionalism towards her work as an actress is equally important. She said : [ Personal life and work should not be placed together, I try my best not to trouble others, if I take the time off, there will be many others who will have to wait for me in other to complete their work, my colleagues also have their work to complete, no one is obligated to share the burdens of your problems, for example, if someone is late, that will cause the entire group to wait, and that is not good! Whatever the case, it is best not to trouble others.] Even though Michelle is hurting inside, she is still able to spare a thought for others, well deserving of one's respect for her.
We are just human, no matter how strong we appear on the outside, we cannot hide pain inside. Michelle will only allow herself to grieve when she is alone, so as to not affect others. [ I am an optimist, it was him (boyfriend), before he died, we had an agreement, he just wants me to be happy so that he doesn't have to worry about me, because he knows that I will be able to cope just fine.] Michelle tries many ways to explain the reason of her boyfriend's passing, hoping to find closure and release from it, she said : [ Actually I feel as if he is still around, just that he is somewhere far away, in the past, we had a very relax and easy relationship, if I am gone for a month for work, I will call him, as long as we love each other, it will do. Furthermore, he is also very busy and so am I, our characteristic is as such, therefore, marriage to us is just a formality, a marriage certificate is just a piece of paper to us, it hold no meaning. We are not children, we are also not after each other's assets, both of us just want each other to be happy, we both like this type of lifestyle, he knows that I am very busy, that is why he doesn't worry about me.]
Michelle and her boyfriend have been in love for many years, both trusted and cared for each other, the only thing lacking is a marriage certificate.
Concentrate on her career
The deceased has been laid to rest, the living should continue to live life with a positive attitude. Michelle continues to work, using working to fill up her time, as for her love life, she can only resign to her fate, she says : [ Nowadays I won't ponder on such things, just leave it to fate, let heaven decide. Now I do not needs this, I am most happy at work, even though I can be very busy, to the point of not getting enough rest, but I really enjoyed it, I will find happiness is sorrow, happiness in my hectic schedule. ]
Other than making money from acting, Michelle continues with her charity work, she said : [ I always wanted start a company dealing in recycling, recycle stuffs that others do not want, repair or recondition it and give it to those who needs it. Recycle people, those who have lost their jobs, retrain them so that they can go back into the workforce, as long as it helps people, I would want to do it. ]
You really have to admire Michelle, she never allowed herself to wallow in her grief, believing in a positive attitude in living life to the fullest. From Michelle, it seems to radiate a message, telling everyone, don't be afraid of pain, be brave and face it and you will overcome it.
Don in period costume, Michelle, who looks much like before in 1976 when she first shot to fame in the serial <<Condor shooting hero>>, becoming Hong Kong's first Huang Rong, Till today, she can still easily fill the role like before, one easily forgets that it has been 30 years. This proves that as long as the heart is beautiful, one's appearance will also reflect it as well.
