In life there are ups and downs. Sometimes a bad event can turn into a good event. My essay topic shows how life can throw good and bad things at you.

Being kind isn't always a good thing it could ultimately be the bad thing in some cases, The reason I say this is because you might be kind to the wrong person and they will do something bad. For an example being kind to a robber in precautions of not knowing what they will do. In Romeo and Juliet someone being kind caused terrible accidents that had ultimately caused the death of both teens. How just rejecting situations or decisions could have avoided events causing a lots of accidents that could have been handled in an easier manner. A careful analysis will show that misguided kindness led to the deaths of the two young lovers.

My bad decision is one I think most are guilty of, waiting until the last minute on something important.

Having too much pride can result failure in life, destroy egos because of overconfidence in what one thinks is right. If the desire is too strong for something that is out of reach, then giving up all will for one thing means defeat. The future may not be the one that people have all dreamed off, but they can achieve the goal that they desire by setting small, achievable checkpoints, therefore, feeling joyful and satisfied. If one is proud, he/she is upset at every slight. It is hard to realize that one’s idea might be dreadful.

His revenge may not be as fast as people may like, but he will take care of it. In addition, two wrongs do not make a right. If someone does something mean to you and you turn around and do something mean back, nothing is resolved. The situation becomes worse because you have dropped down to their level. Then when you have dropped down to their level then that makes you look like a bad person.
People do bad acts because of power, or maybe they don’t know better, or (most of the time) people choose bad because if they do what is right it isn’t going to benefit them. People who do right when it doesn’t benefit them often do it because of morals and having a conscience and knowing what is right thing to do. Throughout the novel, characters like Boo Radley, Scout,
Evil is a simple word that we learn at a young age and that we understand is bad. However, our youth and innocence prevents us from knowing the weight the word holds. As our understanding of evil develops, we begin to see evil all around us. Although we hold common societal definitions of evil, each person is bound to view evil slightly different from others. Someone might consider alcoholism evil, while others consider it normal: someone might believe racism is evil, while others believe it is natural.
Have you ever wondered what percentage of students who cheated get caught? Well, according to Ad Council and ETS, 95% of them do not get caught. This large percentage is very surprising.

Stereotyping is a serious issue. Stereotyping creates false perspectives of the world. For one thing, they make people miss out on opportunities and chances.
