Day 8: The Mistake

Everyone makes mistakes.

Some people know it, others don't.

I won't go into detail but...

There is something I wish to say.

It's excruciatingly difficult being a leader, even more so when people don't want to listen to you. What everyone has to understand is that a leader simply must do his duty, despite it being an awful one, and that followers must follow to the last detail. This is because in most cases, leaders are chosen because they know what's best. Sure, some people may not have been a direct part of this, but it's our job as a group to carry any and all burdens together, and together amend a problem. It does not matter who's fault it was, it doesn't even matter who's fault it was not. It matters that we have some fixing to do, and that we're going to do it together. Antagonizing one who tries his best to help us in the nicest way possible is cowardly, to show him we're better than what we've shown the people around us is bravery. In a situation like this, no one is guilty, but at the same time we all are. 

Maybe we got too comfortable being the 'good' team?

Maybe we're going through rebellious phases?

Maybe we made a mistake.

Let's make it right.

My name is Ryane and I am a fourteen year old student in SAS Puxi. My interest in Microcampus stemmed from a desire to participate in something outside of my sheltered metropolitan lifestyle where everything is done for me and I am painfully inexperienced. I have lived in Shanghai for eight years now but was born in Taipei, Taiwan to an English speaking family of six cousins and numerous relatives. I have left Xizhou and missing it most painfully, however, I am happy and excited for all future Microcampers and the amazing experience they will experience. Be good to T and Ms. Mai!
