This world is too small for everyone to only care about themselves. What would life be without other people saying “I love you,” or “how has your day been?” Everyone can be selfish at some point, but there is a huge reinforced limitation on how selfish a single person can be. In this memoir, That Vacation, I broke through that reinforced limit and became an ugly person. To some people, having a ‘vacation’ is a relaxing time to have fun with family and friends, but to others, it can be a stressful, and hurtful time that and change lives. On my vacation, It was one of the hurtful ones that actually changed my life for the better. That Vacation taught me a valuable lesson not to pass that reinforced limitation on being selfish. Today, I help and support others who need to be cared for, and loved, and asked how their day has been, because I know that if it can change my life, then it can surely change others lives as well.
