Good day myLotters! I remembered the term BI was used in my High school days. Bad influence friends - Those friends who are the mastermind of doing the bad things. I remembered when I was in High school, there was this guy who is always the mastermind of doing the bad stuff, smoking, drinking silently in school. He was caught many times and almost got expelled. That was when we were Junior high. When we got to our Senior years, he changed for the better because he was inspired by the words of one of the teachers. He graduated with us and now he is studying Marine technology. Just want to share this. How about you? Have any experience on these?

it is very good to hear that. i don't have an experience that goes exactly like that but my best friends nowadays are those i hate in the past. the score is, you have to look beyond what is perceived by our eyes. good luck to you and your friend!

I see that you are able to mingle with your friends in the past and you eventually became best friends now! It's good t hear that. I have to agree that one have to look beyond what is perceived in our eyes. It's just something we do not take advantage of.

to tell you, before we are just classmates who doesn't even talk with each other. and i always think that they are two of the last persons i'll talk with but eventually, i have enrolled in a subject wherein i have strangers for classmates, except the two of them. i thought that i wouldn't last the subject and i hesitated to sit beside them because my other friends tell me that they have their own world in which i couldn't get in. but eventually, i tried to talk to them and find myself enjoying their company. they became my very first best friends (after 21 years of living, lol) can you also tell me about your experience?

Oh wow. That's really great to hear. You were able to mingle with them and you found yourself better in company with them. Well, my experience with other friends, let's see. Now, I have two of these classmates who I thought I would never befriend of. Because they were really the 'higher level' type, if you know what I mean. They're just too popular and such. However, as time flies by, after around 10 months, I was able to become close with them. It's really amazing how people's perspective on a certain person would change due time.

Hello della! Of course I remembered you. I guess you were able to relate to my story by referring to your brother. I'm glad to hear that he changed his ways. I know he had a difficult time ago but now let us look at the brighter side of life. He is now a teacher and even though he could still remember those days back then, he could eventually teach the bad boys a lesson in class.

you are right,but somtimes the teacher's way of teaching bad students a lesson is inappropriate and always cause resentment and rebellious of those students,so my brother have his ways and sometime bad and naughty guys get along well with him and listen to his advise....

That is good to hear that he really do gets along with his friends. I do wonder though, if your brother's students would learn from your brother's past mistakes and they would change for the better. It may sound good for people who needs some inspiration in life.

Wow! He became a priest? That's just good! I guess he was touched and he served the Lord now. Now that's a nice story to listen anytime of the day. It just makes me more enlightened and more encouraged to see people change for the better.

No I don't have such experience but one of my friend used to get anger every time and I felt I should change him but not by advice and made him to realize how danger is anger and now he does not get anger quickly.

Well, at least you don't have to worry about your friends that really have bad influences on others. It's good that you made your friend calm down a bit. It's also a sign that they are inspired and they will know how to control their anger and instead of getting angry all the time, they become more and more happier each and every single day.

I agree. Everyone has that kind of attitude. It depends if you want to be going to be like one.
