God's Way or Society's Way

Which way do you follow?

God's Way or Society's Way

The opposite of what the world believes is true. The world says, protect yourself at all costs. God says, put someone else first and let me protect you. The world says, it's your right to take revenge. God says, revenge hurts your heart. Let me take care of it. The world says, act on what you feel. God says, submit your feelings to truth. Do only what will help you and others.

I strive to always be what I would call a good person. Always treating people with respect, kindness, and honesty. I strive to be loving and caring to all my friends, family, and significant other. The rules I follow are the way God says to treat people. It is I'm the Bible (The book of life's instructions).

This has been my goal for quite a few years now. I decided to change the way I treated people when I decided to become a nurse. I specialized in geriatrics. Geriatrics is our grandma and grandpas; the ones in the long term care facilities, also known as nursing homes. My theory was there their last stop before they die so they should be treated with nothing but the very best I could treat them. It worked out great for me in that area of people in my life.

It did not work out so well with friends, family, and relationships. I was always being too nice and they learned to manipulate me. Took my kindness for weakness. Always to their advantage, if they needed something I was the one to call. Yet, when I needed someone, I had no one to call. Not one of them ever could scratch my back like I had done theirs.

I had made it a goal to find just one person who treated me exactly the way I treated them. Like I had been doing for years. Not one have I found. I still can not believe that there is not one I have come across that treats people the way the whole world is taught to by our creators advice.

I have come to the conclusion that I must be doing it wrong to be the only one treating people kindly. That I am going to change my morals. I am a person too. Therefore, the changed person that I will now be, will be just like everyone else, but I will get talked badly about for following the crowd.

A lot of my friends have lost a good friend. Sorry. I was a good friend then when we were friends. Now, we must not be friends so that I can not feel bad for acting just like you.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
