“You got your lesson right kid?”
“Yes, I do sir.”
“Good, now go back to your seat and don’t do anything useless.”
Now, how many of you had that kind of a conversation with your school teacher in your school days. Almost everyone right? I myself had that kind of conversation, but not only one time, but almost like twice a week. But I didn’t understand what “lesson” was there for me to learn. But as I grew up, I got to know that almost everyone in this world will try to teach you a single lesson, whether he/she is a friend, parent, teacher, neighbor, or whoever.
But the thing they are trying to teach you is the same – Don’t get too close to anyone as they are going to leave you one day or the other. Well, being very close to anyone is not a problem. I have many close friends in my real life and on the internet as well. And guess what? They are also trying to teach you the same lesson. They may not even know it, neither will you!
Learn that single lesson, and move on. Like all those quotes on the internet say – “Learn from your own mistakes.” Fine, I learned from my mistake, now what? This is the question many of my friends ask. So, what do you really learn? You learn that you don’t have to commit the same mistake again. It doesn’t matter how much big your mistake is, it doesn’t matter that you lose all your best friends, the thing is, you learned a big lesson.
Now, many people fail to realize this, and what they do? Suicide. Well what does suicide means anyway? I came across this definition of suicide somewhere (I don’t remember the source):
Suicide is a permanent solution to temporary problems.
At least first analyze the problem you are in, and then take proper steps. Now you will think, “Huh-uh what this 15-year-old kid will teach me about life?” But you are wrong! This 15-year-old teen has had many bad experiences, experiences that would make any teen suicide within minutes. I am not praising myself, but I am showing you your potential. If a 15-year-old kid can do that, so can you!
