Hi JoEditor. It seems that the woman said : " She lives next door and she's always been really important to my life"
( I am sorry for any inconvenience!)

Hi gianggiangphi,
I think the problem here is the pronunciation. When the speaker says ' ... important in my life' I think you're hearing ' ... importan - tin - my - life' as the 't' sound from 'important' rolls in to the 'in' and makes a sound like 'tin'. Is that what you mean? Listen again - there's definitely no 'o' sound to make the word 'to' so that should help you to understand that it's 'in' rather than 'to my life'.
I hope this makes sense!
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team)

I can't choose between my parents and friends who are more important to me. So, they are all part of my life.
