The Real EDUCATION
Education is essential. It is not about how many A's you got or how high is your GPA/CGPA during your courses in schools, college and university. It is about how you learned well, learned good and give back what you learned to yourself, people, society and as a whole-the world.
Sometimes, not everything you learned at these institutions (schools, colleges, universities) , but you learned the fundamentals of living, love and respect mostly from home, from families. This will later even contributed by your friends, colleagues and people you associate in your real life and virtual life.
The most vital key of your education does come from your home. They way you talk to people, how you interact with one another and respect another being and non-living things, this is basically what you have learned from your home.
What have our parents taught us and how we response to those teachings will develop us to the person we are today. They are parents who failed to perform their responsibilities to their children by giving a good education in terms of developing a child's attitude, behavior and character. Whereas, this is the most crucial development for a person which soon will help him/her to develop towards a good person.
Nevertheless, there are children who learned several things by themselves and if their basis are learning good values from their home, they will pick up the good ones and leave the bad ones. Unfortunately, most children or teenagers are easy corrupted by their external surroundings, especially by friends and peers.
If they are surrounded by bad behavior friends, they might end up like the particular group of individual. Most may get influenced, though some may know to differentiate good and bad instead respect these groups and try to change them in stages. So, don't simply judge, unless you are in the person's shoes and know the entire true story.
Stop all the hurtful words where you insult people by swearing and bring people's reputation to the ground. Stop all the medium that brings humiliation to others. Nothing fit the shoes unless your own shoes that done such evil.
Let's not touch too deep on religion because every religion in this world teaches us to be good and perform good in our daily lives. Almost everyone in this world is entitled to their religion either they are born with one or convert to a religion later in his/her life. In reality, most of us are blinded by the meaning and concept of religion itself rather than the concept of true goodness and pursuing the right path to Him.
So? Many people like to use religion as a tool to cover someone mistake in current time.
People can change. There are few individuals who used to be bad individuals, however blessed enough to realize their mistakes, met someone to help them change, learned from the past and stop repeating the same mistakes and completely repent. Like I said, few.
Many bad people are still roaming around, especially in today's world. They forgot their real responsibilities in this world and are obsessed with hurting people and jeopardizing other people's life. Why? You think because you're still young, death won't come to you? There is no judgement day and a miserable life in another life and the afterworld? There are people who will forgive you for all the mistakes that you have done to them, family or their entire life?
If you are enjoying every single agony that you commit to good people or people you barely know, be ashamed of yourself because you don't have any self-respect for yourself, family and your religion. If you have that 'I don't care' attitude or screw other people, you are living in your own hell, waiting for the right time to be punished in the world and the afterworld.
I am sorry that I can't help you and the others can't too if you do not want to help yourself. Don't say people failed to help you. You failed to help yourself when there are opportunities and unfortunately you are blinded by your own character, self-pride and evilness within. If you remained being bad or worse-evil after being punished of your sins, may God forbid you to ruin other people's life and may your repent to Him before everything is too late.
This bad, evil people are multiplying day by day. It is a very dangerous and cruel world indeed out there. There are several individuals who really concern to take care of their real good virtues, heart and soul to help themselves, family, loved ones, people and the world.
Most people are more keen to see how well you dress and who you are rather than seeing the inner beauty of a person. Some even judge you before they know you. Some spread false rumors after they know you, but hate you for no reasons out of jealousy and pure evil.
Some just create more issues for others to hate you even there is nothing to it but again, pure evil. You don't expect to earn goodness from this kind of people because sometimes, they are the people who hides behind their mask, and their evil will one day eat them when the time comes.
Thus, if we are an educated person, we are supposed to perform good deeds rather than committing evilness and turn other people's life and the world upside down. We should have a good family and community that help each other to cleanse the heart and soul rather than passing rumors, backstabbing and commit evil in front or behind a person.
Most importantly, every one of us should help ourselves, improve ourselves better. Sometimes, we are our own worst enemies. Friends are also important. Be good to people but choose your mates wisely. Associate yourself with good and kind people with virtues and values.
Beware of those who talk nice in front of you, but badmouth on you behind your back. Worse, those who slander, hurt, or try to destroy you. Somehow, you will know when the right time comes.
Thus, parents should embrace their role to really educate their children and inculcate moral values and virtues to ensure your children will be a good person in the future. No matter how far a person goes, they will remember their roots and the importance of being and doing good in life.
Education as a whole is very substantial. However, we must never forget the real education we should have which is keep learning being and doing good. Individuals who go astray, stop blaming your parents, friends or anyone else. You have to start looking at your own mistakes and be sure to learn from them rather than pointing fingers.
Educate yourself without hoping from other people. That is how you will learn.
