Brooke and Paige
A: (Paige) There are several bad things that, at the time they were happening, I wished I did not have to live through. But I would not change anything in my life, even the bad moments, because those things have helped form me into the person I am today. I like the person I am and I love where I am today because of those things I survived.
A: (Brooke) Everyone has events in their past that they regret and wish would have never happened. But as for going back and changing the events, I wouldn't want to. Each experience, good, bad, or indifferent, has been instrumental in making me who I am. I have survived some bad storms; I have laughed and danced in the rain; and I have cried tears of fear, hatred, sadness, and joy. I learned something each time. With each life lesson I learned, I grew as a person. My life experiences have helped to form who I am, so changing any of the events in my life would change who I am. I want to keep learning as I meander down life’s path. If the path is always sunny, bright, and cheery, I would soon become bored and not appreciate the magical moments life offers every day. Without the bad times, we have nothing to gauge just how wonderful the great times are.
