Let me tell you something about myself that you might have never knew before.
No one ever cared enough or gave a shit to teach me anything, I had literally nothing and I grew up all alone with the minimums, I was raised on my own and taught myself everything my brain posses. I taught myself to have respect for people no matter how old or young, rich or poor, smart or not. I taught myself how to eat properly on a table full of people, to pray, to say thank you, yes sir no sir and to always show gratitude and appreciation. I taught myself to get up off my ass and let the elder have my chair, lend a helping hand to those in need, give without expecting anything in return, hold the door for the person behind me and open it for the lady next to me, I taught myself how to write read and speak not just Arabic, English too, oh and I understand a little bit of French sometimes as well.
But you know what's the most important part of all this?
I taught myself to love people for who they are not for what they have or what I can get from them. I also taught myself to treat people the way I love to be treated though I was never treated as I should, but that's okay, it's just how life is sometimes.. Bottom line: My past will always remind me of what I was and who I have become and that what makes me feel so PROUD of who I am today.. Jh
