Just one act of kindness can make an impact. Join the national movement to Choose Kind, inspired by R.J. Palacio’s debut novel, WONDER.
I started off as a “weirdo” especially when I moved schools. I was constantly made fun of, and I hung out with the wrong people. I tried and tried to make myself seem as good as them, but it wouldn’t work. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME TRYING TO CHANGE STUBBORN PEOPLE’S MINDS. It took me a few years that they were not getting the message, which cost me a lot of things. There were some people who thought that I should just forget about them and just move on. I, unfortunately did not listen to them sooner. When I realized, those were my friends. They did not want me to get hurt. If someone is trying to open up your mind to something, take time to listen because you might not realize what you’re missing.
