Lessons of The Past
1. Don’t Judge Others Unless You Know Them
I learned this lesson when I was just a young girl. I was in the 6th grade I think and it was these group of girls (preps) and they seemed that they were mean. I was new at the school and I really didn’t know the girls for myself so I just went with what everyone else was saying. A couple of months past and I haven’t talked to the girls because of what some of the other kids had told me. I finally got the courage to talk to the group of girls and when I did I came to the conclusion that they were nothing like the other people had described them. They were really nice and they had an awesome personality. After this day I have came to the conclusion that I would not judge anyone unless I got to know them myself.
2. Treat Others The Way You Want To Be Treated
I had just found out that my sister was having a baby girl. I was so happy because she had already had three boys. Now I loved all of my nieces and nephews and I never really thought that I showed any favoritism toward any of them. After my niece was born I bought her clothes, shoes, and many other different things that I didn’t buy for my nephews. I really didn’t see anything wrong with it until my nephew started to get his feelings hurt. My sister came to me and told me what he had said which was that he thought I didn’t love him. After I had heard that my heart sank and I started to reminisce on the times that I had been left out of so many things with my older brothers and sisters and I began to cry. I cried because never in my life did I want someone else to feel left out like I was when I was younger. From that day forward if I brought my niece something I also got something for the rest of my nephews. This is the day that I learned to treat everyone equally as possible.
