As we know, there are differences between western culture and Chinese culture. We can see differences when we pay attention to the way words are used. Let’s look at the words about animals and plants. Most expressions in Chinese about the dog, for example, “a homeless dog”, “a mad dog”, “a running dog” and “a dog catching a mouse”, have negative meanings. But in western countries, dogs are thought to be honest and good friends of humans. In English, people use the dog to describe positive actions. For example, “you are a lucky dog” means you are a lucky person. And “every dog has its day” means each person has good luck sometimes. To describe a person’s serious illness, they say “sick as a dog”. The word “dog-tired” means very tired. However, Chinese love cats very much. But in western culture, “cat” is often used to describe a woman who is cruel(无情).
The rose is a symbol(标志)of love in both China and some western countries. People think the rose means love, peace, courage and friendship. And the rose is the national flower of England, America and many other countries.
The words about plants and animals are used in positive or negative ways in different cultures. We can learn about many differences in cultures by comparing how some words are used.

The secrets of happiness
Most people want to be happy, but few know how to find happiness. Money and success do not bring lasting happiness. Happiness depends on ourselves. In other words, we make our own happiness. Here are a few suggestions to help you be happier.
1 . Too often, we spend so much time thinking about the future—for example, getting into college or getting a good job—that we fail to enjoy the present. You should enjoy life’s simple pleasures, such as reading a good book, listening to your favorite music, or spending time with close friends. 2 .
Another secret to leading a happy life is to be active and have hobbies where you forget your problems. Many people experience this dancing or playing a sport, such as skating or soccer. 3 .
Finally, many people find happiness in helping others. According to studies, people feel good when they volunteer their time to help others. 4 . You can help a friend with his or her lessons, go shopping to buy food for your family members, or simply help out around the house by washing the dishes.
A. You can forget about your problems, and only think about the activity.
B. If you want to feel happier, do something nice for someone.
C. The first secret of happiness is to enjoy the simple things in life.
D. People who have several close friends live happier and healthier lives.

As a teenager, I met the same problem as you. But now I can get along better with my mother. Here are some ideas for you.
Your mother talks much, because she cares about you. Maybe it's not a good way, but it shows your mother's love. So I th ink you should listen to her. If your opinions are different from your mother's, you can communicate with her, and tell her what you are thinking about.
If your mother doesn't take your advice, just keep silent and give her a smile.
I hop e what I say here can help you a lot.
