Well in y old school there was this special Ed kid and she was extremely nice and people started asking questions on why I would always hang out with her but I truly wanted to say because I was forced to but I stud up for the girl and said she is an intelligent kind girl and I am prou to be her friend and my friends them started to get to know her and really liked her:)
Well it was this year actually i stood up for both me and my friend instead of watching them be a jerk!
Okay, so this is one of the first things that come to mind- Last year I was friends with a couple girls, and there was this one girl who didn't really have that many friends, and for some reason, people didn't communicate with her that much, but I got to know her and she was really nice and kind she's still a friend of mine. Now she knows more friend s and people are really seeing how fun she actually is.
One of my friends was talking about another one of my friends with a group of his friends. They were making fun of him, and I told him to stop. At first, they all looked at me in a strange way, but they took it the wrong way, and got mad at me.
Well I was hangin out with a few people and they all wanted to Do this one certain activity. One friend didn't know how to play and she didn't want to play. So I decided that instead of excluding that one friend, that I should go and hang out with her. So I did.
One time when I was 6 I was with my younger cousin and we were at a park some were I forgot where. When we were there my younger cousin was getting pushed around by other kids. I was afraid to do anything because I thought I was going to get hurt but I was mad because they were being mean to my little cousin. So, I stood up to them and then my aunt came over and everything was solved.
One time my 3rd grade teacher told me to be in a group with a boy I didn’t really know on field day. She put me in a group with him because his original partner was absent that day. At first I had a frown on my face which made her really disappointed in me. I said that I really didn’t know the boy that well and I’ve never really talked to him at all. This meant we were practically meeting for the first time.
I did the right for being in that kid’s group. I also learned that trying something new is always a great thing. In the end, he turned out to be very nice.
A time where I did the right thing when it was not the easy choice or the popular choice was at camp. It was a beautiful day and everyone was playing four square at camp. We were all having a wonderful time when their was someone in the background being left out. I saw him out of the game so I decided to invite him over. Soon he was being included and enjoying himself.
A time when I did the right thing but it was hard for me was when I was home alone with my brother and we messed up our basement with toys and when my parents got home they asked which one of us had made the mess. I said that I did it. My brother had a sleepover that night right after they came home. I wanted him to go to it so I took the blame. That is the story of how I made the right decision but it was hard for me.
Ok so there was this one time that someone was talking about someone even though they didn’t know it was true. So I told them to stop talking about it and read or something similar to that. I think he told me to be quiet. Whenever I make him “look bad” by telling him to stop in front of his friends, he will try to not look bad – so he’ll say something like “be quiet” or “stay out of it”. I usually do this to make him stop talking about me or someone else. He is the one who thinks he is all cool and popular. So to the people around him, I probably looked like a weirdo, but I am perfectly ok with that. This kid is nice most of the time, and isn’t a total jerk so it’s not like I am insulting him or anything. So yeah, that’s what I have been doing about all year but it’s the right thing to do you know. So I feel good for doing that as well as taking a stand for people I don’t know, people I do know and even myself.
One time when I didn't do the easy thing or the popular thing to do was when this girl invited me to her birthday party. Everyone said they weren't going to come to the party because the girl was weird. But I went because it was the right thing to do and I did not want the girl to feel bad when no one showed up for her party. The party was actually fun and I enjoy hanging out with her now. That is an example of when I did the hard thing and got a new friend out of it.
