Be Proud for the Graduates

Posted by greaterknowledge on March 22, 2008

I was with some of my friends the other day. Things were going well and everybody was happy. We were gladly enjoying ourselves. Exchanging our stories to each other. Then, one of my friends told us that her sister-in-law has finally graduated in College. Not only did she graduate, but she finished her courses with flying colors. She became the cum laude in her University. I was really proud. You see, her sister-in-law has worked so hard for this. Being a mom of 3 kids and a housewife is hard. The fact that, she was trying to balance her time with her family and studies, we have to give her credit for being patient and goal-oriented. That makes her an outstanding person. Regardless of what her negative attitudes were. We can still say that we ought to be proud of her.

It’s just sad when others can’t seem to really see the point of just being happy for that person’s achievement. There may be some things we can’t explain why a person succeed but, we have no reason to doubt how that person succeeded. Giving the person a thought of doubtfulness is mean. There are other people who just can’t bare the fact that some people are better than them. Though, they may think they are better. It’s just a matter of keeping it to yourself. You don’t have to say it out loud that, there must’ve been something that made her get reached that high. The earth is round my friend. It’s not always you who’s on top. Give others a chance to feel proud of themselves.

Imagine yourself being in the same position as her. You know you did your best. You’ve worked so hard even though nobody sees it or nobody even tries to notice it. Then, one day, you were finally given a chance to be known as one of the best in your school. Isn’t it that, you want to feel support and you want them to be happy for you? Doubting you would make you feel hurt. The fact that they’re not always around you, to judge how you got that achievement is not fair.

Don’t worry my friend. There may be other people who are envious of what you have right now. But, there are still more people who are very happy that you’ve finally reached your dreams and are here to support you all the way. I’m so happy for you. Keep it up! You deserve to be an Architect.
