Changes: Homework for the week of may 22nd 2006.Submitted by thepolliwog
Finish the following sentence starter.
“It was not my place to change……..”
Write down three things you didn’t do because you were afraid. What could have changed in your life if you had done them?
It was not my place to change…….
i dont think i have ever changed anything i was not meant to *shrugs* I changed, as others couldn't see that they needed to…
Three things hmmm….
1. Filled with fear: afraid of ghosts; afraid to die; afraid for his life.
2. Having feelings of aversion or unwillingness in regard to something: not afraid of hard work; afraid to show emotion.
3. Filled with regret or concern. Used especially to soften an unpleasant statement: I'm afraid you're wrong.
i never told on my bully at school, mainly because i didn't believe that anyone would be able to make it stop. Judging by what i have heard about the bully after he left school, im kinda glad i never told as i think it could of got worse than it already was. If i had of told and it had got worse then i hate to think what type of person i would be like now, or what other scars i would have to show for it!
I guess the second one would be moving my child half way across the country to live with my partner. I dont know, Its kinda weird im not afraid as such and not for myself. So i guess it does not apply? Anyway if i was not 'afraid' of how it would affect my daughter and her dad's (already separated but regular) relationship then my life would be different. I might just be living with my long-distance long term boyfriend, so what does that say? Am i afraid of being selfish? or am i being selfish? hmm *confused* it concerned me that i couldnt get my head around moving because of how it might effect my child, im taking that as a good thing tho. *even more confused!*
Last one… this is hard! Ok afraid is really not a word i would use…nope ok im missing out number three. If you want to count leaving paperwork or forms being filled out as late as possible due to not wanting the results/outcome then that will be my final answer. If i got on and sorted them when they came through the post, or if i had done my homework when i got it, or revised for my exams ages before i had to sit the papers, then maybe i would have proper qualifications. But then im glad i didn't. My resits lead to a course, which lead to me meeting Puds father. If i was not the way i am then Pud may of never been born! Eeek that would be awful! and deffinatly something to be afraid of… time travel, dont do it 😉
