Everything I Didn’t Know I Didn’t Know About the People I Know

I loved doing the Humans of PGJR assignment, because as I did it I gained a whole new perspective on life. I feel like in junior high kids are super focused on themselves and everyone thinks that their problems are worse than anyone else’s, and that no one else is going through the same things as them. As I did this assignment I realized that is 100% wrong. I realized that everyone struggles with something and most people don’t show it. I thought I knew one of the people really well that I interviewed, but as they started answering my questions I realized that they go through a lot more than I thought they did. I realized that their life isn’t as perfect as I thought it was, and they actually go through a lot of the same struggles as me. My biggest take away from this assignment is that nobody’s life is perfect, even if it seems like it. Also I am going to try not to compare my life with others because I often times only see and hear about the highlights of their life, so it’s not fair for me to compare.
