An Event That Taught Me an Important Lesson Paragraph

I left home riding high on adolescent hormones that make one think that he is invincible. A calamity is something that people on the news are subjected to. It is something that doesn’t happen to you, or so I thought that day. I was angry at my parents, angry at my siblings, angry at my teachers; even angry at myself. I guess I was angry at the world in general.

My parents were concerned that I wasn’t spending enough time studying. My teachers wanted me to try harder because they saw more potential in me. My siblings frustrated me in little ways that younger siblings often do. I was angry at myself for letting them all get to me. I decided to go for a jog to get my anger out.

I began concentrating on outpacing the robust, gray-haired man ahead of me. Suddenly, without warning, he stopped in the middle of the track and clutching his chest he fell down.

However, his wife’s worried voice stayed at the back of my head. He had a wife and family who probably doted on him. I wondered if he would make it. I suddenly felt ashamed of myself for behaving as though I carried the burdens of the world on my shoulders. My life had no problems compared to what that man was facing right then. I walked back home humbled by this experience.
