Your assignment is to prepare and submit a paper on the story of my own. My parents tried to be good parents. They taught me what needed to be known about life.
I logically broke down complex things in small pieces and far from simplifying, I learned the important basics of being alive. At times life can be harsh, nonetheless, if one passes through good learning and mentorship from parents, life can be a bed of roses. Certainly, the future holds good things for all people, but many fail to reach the peak of life because of the inability to learn proficient skills. Among the many things that expanded my knowledge, respect remains supreme. Respect for oneself, and for other people. When learning spelling, piano, cartwheels, I can feel bad, but not worse, because of respect. Additionally, the belief that if one does not respect himself, no one else can offer the same respect.
If not wrong, I must have been six or seven when playing at my cousin’s house with his toys. His family was rich than mine, therefore, he had many more play toys than I did. Despite the friendship and respect, I liked his toys. Nevertheless, there was one toy I always wanted and slipped it into my side pocket when he went to the kitchen. I was overwhelmed to play with the toy, and I dimly sensed the reparations it might bring to the respect and friendship. The much happiness, however, did not last long as faced much guilt even at a tender age. I never enjoyed playing with the toy, and could not look my cousin in the eye. In this respect, I always knew I had stolen, and my opinion of myself betrayed my conscience. I had a difficult time facing or engaging mu usual friend. Although he noticed the difference, he was very suspicious but could not confirm anything. At last, his mother took me home, and when I arrived, I guiltily pulled out the doll and gave it back. As a .parent, she knew of what was happening, but she thanked me while taking it and never spoke of it again. Since that day, I learned to gain self-respect before respecting others. Subsequently, accepting the strengths and weaknesses also forms an important part of making life better.
