In the future, I will handle my personal relationships well and regulate my words and deeds.

I have all this in my heart, and I will never forget it. Maybe my inability to express myself well has caused some misunderstandings. I apologize to everyone here, sorry! I hope to express myself more through my works in the future. This is what I think is the best way to face everyone. Thank you for your supervision.”
