"What goes around comes around" means if you want something good to happen to you then you have to help or do something good for someone else. Before you get something good in return you have to do something good for someone else.

I relate to "What goes around comes around" because my grandparents would always say "what goes around surely does come back around". Looking back on my past life I see that i have made many mistakes and majority due to my lack of patience, disrespect, and never listening to my elders. If I had only listened and payed attention words of wisdom and took into consideration what was being told and taught to me. I would have saved my self from alot of trouble.

The first valuable lesson I learned was my ninth grade year of high school, when I cheated on the final test. I was making new friends who, luckily for me, could drive. I found myself going out a lot more than I probably should have but going out was a lot more fun than staying home and studying.My grandfather warned me to get focused in school, I told him not to worry because I always figured my way out but whatever he seemed to say always went in one ear and out the other.I started to come to school late everyday. If I did come on time, I would fall asleep in class. I missed a lot of homework and class activities. So, I was already behind the class before I even knew about it. I did not know what to do when the final was about to come, I was stuck in a bad situation, so I decide to take the short cut and cheat on the exam. Too bad I got caught and went through a lot of bad experiences with the teachers and school principal. Only then did I start to belief there was a little truth to what my grandfather had tried to teach me.
