really regreted going on the silver bullet ride at Knotss Berry Farm…
Have you ever suddenly realized something out of the blue? Maybe you suddenly realized that the guy drinking coffee next to you was your childhood friend or that you have actually been a horrible sister for never trying to understand the other party. All of these sudden realizations always stir up regrets in my opinion. We suddenly realize something and then we start to think about what we could have or should have done. If only we realized something sooner. Maybe we could have changed the present by acting differently in the past.
Regrets will always happen. As human beings, we will never be able to make the right choices ALL THE TIME. That is impossible in so many ways. However, instead of letting these regrets ruin our lives…let’s realize something and make the future brighter.
…and then we stare into space not knowing what to do next
I recently received the novel, “Frankenstein” by Mary Shelley in my English class. Even though the only thing I know about “Frankenstein” is the creature/monster itself, I am really excited about reading this novel. My teacher made a comment in class about how we as humans create things with good intentions but these things end up spurring disaster.
This got me thinking…have I ever done something like that?
I think all of us has once in our lifetimes done or created something with good intentions but it ended up as the total opposite of our expectations.
I am not perfect. There are times where I argue and talk back to my friends, family, and especially my parents. As a growing adult, I feel as though I need to stand up for my own beliefs, even if they do not correspond with the opinions of my parents. However, because I constantly argue with my parents, I have become an example of disobedience for my sister. Now that she is getting older in age, she is now arguing with me and talking back to me a lot. I have created my own “monster”. As her sister, I want her to grow up with great manners and to obey her elders and be respectful. My own actions have influenced her to be…well just like me sometimes. If only I had thought about what the consequences of my actions would be; I could have stopped my “monster” from being created.
Here is a song titled, “Monster” by the boyband Bigbang. I just wanted to throw this in here…
