Daily Prompt: Breaking the Law

Think about the last time you broke a rule (a big one, not just ripping the tags off your pillows). Were you burned, or did things turn out for the best?

It’s hard to explain the deeds I did. I’ll just cut the long story short. This is not gonna be a proper narration, I hope you’ll bear with it.

“Rules are meant to be broken.” 

This is what I used to believe in during my early teenage phase.

There’s no fun following them that’s how I used to live.

Never cared about others(counting my parents too).

Cursed each and everyone.

Got into some bad company.

Stared drinking from sixth grade on wards.

My parents caught me while getting high (first time in my life I saw them embarrassed because of me).

Tried to commit suicide in seventh grade.

Life isn’t  easy, that’s what I believed.

I forgot how to smile.

After some medications and self searching I realized my mistakes.

My parents helped me a lot in getting stable.

I owe them my whole life.

I have learned my lesson that breaking stuffs(rules too) can lead to a whole turn of event/life.

  1. Well done you! You had the strength of character to realise your mistakes and the grace to accept help and then acknowledge the help you were given. A lovely,honest post – thank you for sharing.

  2. I am the only son in my family, and the most active kid of my parents, since I have 5 sisters. During my childhood, breaking the rules is not in my list of things to do, because I was too busy in enjoying nature, and reading the fairly tales. If we plant a good seed in our children, then we will never have to worry that they will deviated too far from the main path, the path that leads to their goals, and dreams.

    I must be a headache to my parents, and when I look back now, they are such a wonderful parents that tolerated so many of my mistakes and mischievousness. I am sure your parents are the same as well. The parents, and us the children, learn from each other, about the experience of life, and then we grow together. To me, this is so wonderful, because life is like a kaleidoscope, interesting, exciting, and rewarding.

    I am glad we have finally grown up, and moving towards the next phase of our character growth in life. :).


  3. I would have to disagree with the owe-them-my-life part. Sure, we must be thankful to them, and care for them in every possible way. But no. Life is too big a thing to be lived for someone else. But… that is my personal opinion, and I do not have many who agree with me either 🙂 Fair enough ?

    That apart, kudos to you for fighting back in. I remember I was caught by my mother watching porn in 10th grade 😛 It was embarrassing, but I did not commit suicide. Getting drunk is no big deal, and I wish kids have someone to tell them that when they are young.

    But my differences aside, I love your honesty. Keep it up. People may not agree with you, but YOU are a masterpiece- someone I adore told me that once 😉
