I was raised with a mother who was a devout Sikh. My mother’s family are from India, and it was a common practice for the family to take children to see the Guru every summer. As a child, I was a constant visitor to the Guru’s house. I was fascinated by his teachings, and he was a part of my daily routine. He gave me the greatest gifts a child could ask for.
However, while I was a very happy child, we weren’t always as happy as we should have been in our parents’ eyes. I learned early in life that I was not the son I was raised to be. I was a very serious, studious child that learned early to not let my dad know what was going on in my head. When I was 8 I began to tell my dad how I had hurt my shoulder by jumping off a slide at the local playground.
I also remember a kid from my school telling my mom how I had been hitting on her and making her feel uncomfortable. I was always a very shy kid, but I was also very smart and had many friends at school. I knew I could say anything to anyone. I felt the effects of this a lot when I was much older.
I didn’t tell my dad because I was ashamed of my behavior. I just couldn’t see the point in it. I wanted to, but I didn’t want him and his friends to know about what I was doing. I didn’t tell him I had started hitting on other kids, making other kids feel uncomfortable, or that I was making my schoolmates uncomfortable. I just knew I had to stop.
I feel like one of the biggest problems with today’s youth culture is that they tend to be more open with their parents than they are with their friends and teachers. While this is generally positive, it doesn’t always translate well to the rest of the world. We have more freedom of speech today than we ever have, and that can have many negative repercussions.
I was watching a new episode of The Simpsons when I was about five months old and this episode just went up on the show. It was really funny. In my opinion, even the show’s creators don’t know how to make the show cool.
My mother always said to me, “You have so many opportunities to help the world, and you don’t spend them.” I have no idea if that’s ever been true, but I do believe that I am the better person for it. If I could help make a difference, even just a little, maybe I could help some other people too. And I might get to see them for a change.
When someone is in high school, they are in college, and they are married. So there are some who have one of each. This is true for every generation that has lived in that area. But the average age difference between spouses is only about three years. It’s a huge variance, but it’s still the real world. In my opinion, it’s a good thing.
The reason why you should go to college is so people can see you, and make a difference. The good teachers and social workers are more likely to get that education. So go in and think about your future.
