Before I started to practice Falun Dafa, I used to be short-tempered. I always fought with my husband and never wanted to back down. If he tried to beat me up, I’d grab anything I could find to fight back regardless of the consequences.
When I was persecuted for my faith in Falun Dafa, the authorities extorted over 10,000 yuan from my family. My daughter-in-law wasn’t happy about it. She started to resent me and stopped talking to me.
In 2012, her brother wanted to buy a house but was short of money. He asked all his relatives, but at the end of the day, he was still short 50,000 yuan. My daughter-in-law was so worried that she asked my son to see if I could lend them the money. I went to the bank and took out all the money I had. She was very excited and kept saying, “Mom, you are so nice, so wonderful. I will remember this forever!”
After that she has changed and acknowledges that Dafa is good. When I suggest to her to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), she accepted. Also and her parents and siblings have chosen to quit the CCP.
Being Humble with My Sister-In-Law
Prior to my cultivation, I was often at odds with my sister-in-law. She liked to take advantage of me, but I never gave in. After I became a practitioner, I came to understand loss and gain and let go of my self-interest. My mother-in-law had four vats of wheat and my sister-in-law took all of them, but I didn’t mind. After my mother-in-law passed away, my sister-in-law gave me 1,000 yuan, saying it was from my mother-in-law. But she took over 2,000 yuan and spent it. I said to her, “It doesn’t matter. Even if you didn’t give me anything, that would be fine.”
I never took any of these things to heart. Not only is my sister-in-law happy with me, her whole extended family knows that Falun Dafa is wonderful and decided to quit the CCP. She tells everyone she knows, “After my sister-in-law learned Falun Dafa, she became really good and very nice.” Ours is now a happy family.
My daughter is very supportive of my practicing Dafa. When I was persecuted by the CCP, my family wanted to burn my Dafa books, but my daughter said, “These books are very precious. If you wanted to buy them, you can’t find them.” She put them away and returned them to me after I came home. I was so moved.
Since my parents passed away, I haven’t been back to my hometown. My relatives in the village were very affectionate when they saw me and kept asking me why I looked so young, and why my hair was still fairly dark, compared to people of my age. I said, “We are all one big family. I am illness-free because I practice Falun Dafa and have been blessed by Dafa. What’s shown on TV is all lies, pure lies. Please do not be taken in by that.” When my relatives learned the truth, they decided to quit the CCP.
