Lessons I've Learned from People

So I just finished reading a really interesting books series and went to a couple of classes where we discussed the influence that people have included in literature. I've read in a few writing books that you write what you know, and use your experiences to your advantage. In a script I'm currently writing for my Script class, one of my themes is the importance of learning from the people in your life. Here are a few things I've learned:

No one in the world is exactly like you, no matter how similar they act or think
It is important to let loose and have fun once in awhile
Confidence and happiness are attractive personality traits
You must work hard to reach your dreams
Standing up for yourself is not being selfish
Life will throw you a curve ball, but with the help of your friends, you can hit a home run
Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you cannot be successful in helping someone who doesn't want it
Patience can be very useful in stressful situations
Everyone goes through an identity crisis, a moment of self doubt, and a transformation
Always stay yourself. Don't try to be anyone else
Stories will stick with you whenever you need them.
"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent" Eleanor Roosevelt

What lessons have you learned from people in your life?


  1. I really like this post Sarah. One thing I've learned from you: never be afraid to express yourself and be who you are =)
