Let’s face it, we all have there where we have acted immaturely, foolishly and then ended up getting hurt. College teaches you not just about academics but also about life. We all have been there where we regret one moment and wish we go back in time and change it.
That kind of makes us resolve that we won’t let it happen ever again. So here are few times where we felt responsible.
Owning up to a mistake
You might feel embarrassed, humiliated and pathetic but it takes a huge amount of courage to stand up and admit that yes you were at fault, especially when it is against someone you hate but then it only shows how responsible and brave person you are, as owing up a mistake is not an easy feat.
Taking care of a sick friend
Most of us have come here from homes where we are pampered. That’s why we are always in rush to go back home as soon as vacation starts. And don’t even get me started on the fact how much we are taken care of lovely at home when we are sick. And to take care in the same tender manner of a sick friend, especially when you are not used to it and Google all night to come up with remedies. This speaks volumes about your maturity.
Financially helping someone
This is something most people shy away from for different reasons. One being, that we all are students and we are broke at all times. But if you have a friend who can lend you anytime anywhere without thinking of consequences that might happen, remember you got a friend of a lifetime (hold them tight and never let go).
Doing your own chores
Many of us did not even make our own beds. Hostel life teaches you a lot. One of the main things it makes you learn is that you do your own chores. If you expect someone will do it for you then it is not going to happen at all. And when you finally clean up and sort everything, the satisfactory feeling is indescribable.
Walking away to never turn back
Sometimes we find ourselves in a situation where we just stop caring. Or we don’t show we care anymore though deep down 2000 feet below in depths of your heart somewhere it still hurts. But then one day you realise that nothing will change even if you have got enough proof or tell your side of the story. That is when you act responsible enough to walk away from that situation which does nothing but eat you inside out.
