Write about one profound experience that has changed your life which involves doing something for someone else.
Thank you MP Sharma for the challenge. It’s a challenge because I don’t usually do anything for anybody. Haha just kidding.
Before I continue, I need to say sorry I was so late on everything. I blame time zone differences, horrible timing, and my flawed self. I will apologize profusely for the rest of my life if you want. Please don’t hate me forever.
I don’t know if this is supposed to be an award, but I’ll open it up as a prompt instead. My hobby is breaking rules.
Here we go.
A friend of mine was upset. I don’t blame her. Pressure. Problems. People.
She started tearing up at school so I accompanied her to the restroom. Now I’m not someone who’s good with tears. I cry a lot. But I can’t deal with other people crying. I have no idea how to make anybody feel better.
Trying to calm her down was a challenge for me because I was grasping for words and struggling to say the right thing.
It was an eye-opening experience. I’d even say it was a profound one because a handful of people have had the honour of trying to make me feel better. Now I know what it’s like to be the one doing the comforting instead of the one being comforted. This is probably a life skill I need to acquire.
Well I did joke about not doing anything for anybody. It’s true; I’m selfish like that.
