Lessons learned

There are a lot of things I’ve learned in life. Life is full of learning experiences. People make bad decisions, it’s just part of human nature. You either learn from them or you don’t.

I know a few people who have made some pretty bad choices in their lives but now are on the right path and on the road to recovery. I have made some really bad choices recently, but am on the right path now and have truly learned from my mistakes.

The people who don’t learn from their mistakes always end up making those same mistakes again and end up right where they were before.

Everyone deserves a second chance. I know second chances can be difficult to give, but sometimes it can be the best thing for the person to be given a second chance and another chance to prove themselves. Being given a second chance means you can’t mess up again or disappoint anyone who has given you that chance.

“It depends on what the person did to be given a second chance. If it’s not something too drastic you should be given a second chance. We are only human, we all make mistakes at some point in our lives,” said Marc Esquivel.

This is a small town we live in and when someone makes a mistake people blow it out of proportion. When people make mistakes here everyone knows about it by the first few hours and some people just can’t let it go.

“You know people can have there opinions. You can’t change people. A bad mistake doesn’t make you a bad person and as long as you know that, opinions shouldn’t matter,” said Esquivel, “Wolves don’t lose sleep over the opinion of sheep.”

People should get second chances and another shot at making something right. Everyone makes mistakes, some more drastic than others.

Making a mistake doesn’t make a person bad, it helps determine what the person will become and where they will go from their mistake.
