“Have you ever spoken up when you saw something going on that was wrong? Were you scared? What ended up happening?”
Since Sophomore year in high school I have been away from any social situation, being home-schooled and all, so it has been difficult for me to really have any opportunity at all to defend anyone. However, when I was little and in elementary school, roughly 3-5 grade, I always stood up for those around me that I felt was badly mistreated, Literally my fellow classmates, some of which I never really considered friends, would come to me when they needed someone to back them up, listen to them, or face someone who has done something horrible to them. One instance I remember was when this girl and boy were arguing I stepped in the middle and mediated. I wasn’t really scared but more upset if anything. They both ended up hating me as well as each other, but I felt good about myself for having stepped in, made me a “loser” in everyone’s eyes but I know I did the right thing for standing up for the right and trying to help them both see each other’s sides, to help them understand what was really going on. Even though because I did that everyone thought I was “uncool” I don’t regret doing the right thing…ever!
Another instance I think of was when I was in Junior High school a bunch of the kids in my class were pouring mustard on snails and because I’m a big believer of not causing living things unnecessary pain I tried to pry them off and I was yelling and screaming at them, they called me stupid or weird because I defending a snail. But I knew what I felt was right and doing that to any living creature is wrong in my eyes I stood up for the right thing.

Hope you enjoyed today’s prompt. Let me know if you ever stood up for something you believed in and what happened I would really like to know! Hope you are having a greatly blessed weekend filled with Love and happiness.
All my everlasting peace and love to you all,
