One of the most important person in my life is my best friend, now we are not in the same high school but we are still having a good relation, she always understands me, and we have lots of things in common.

Me either!
One of the most important person in my life is my best friend who is on the same wavelength as me!
So I can tell anything to my best friend, which I hesitate to talk to my family.
As long as I can trust my BF, I'm happy!
Yet, I sometime feel sad because we are not in the same high school.✨

The most important person in my life is my mother. She looked after my during my childhood and always helped me when I was depressed. We don't always get on really well, but, since I'm a teenager, I think it is normal, isn't it?

My mother is very important in my life. She is a kind woman. In spite of her busy work and my studying ,my mother and I sometimes shop for groceries together and this is a very good time. I remember when I was broken my leg, she burst into tears and when I failed the important exam, I cried a lot whereas she smiled and gave me a hug. Nothing is more meaningful than mother's love. If you fail in life and you want to give up, please think of your mother and her hope. She will give you determination and courage. Mother - the greatest woman in the world!

Hi gianggiangphi,
Do you mean this part: "She lives next door and she’s always been really important in my life." That is correct in English.

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.
