The Worst Thing In My Life

February 28, 2022

At the time of my arrest, I felt it was the worst thing that had happened to me in my life.

Today, I understand that getting caught was not the worst, but the best! After completing both the TPJ and STP courses, I have changed all aspects of my life, including my feelings toward my past actions and crimes. The STP course also taught me that I must acquire active responsibility all my actions. As part of being actively responsible, I must recognize when I have done something wrong, think of ways to make amends, and ask for forgiveness, as well as forgiving others. I must understand that the victim also suffered consequences for my actions. When making decisions, we must think before acting.
