Life gives us many opportunities to correct our mistakes, and my seventeenth birthday provided that chance. I was celebrating with my friends at a local restaurant, using water balloons, eggs etc, when a passer-by addressed us scornfully and said that we were wasting the basic necessities of life, while there were many that yearned for them. The realization struck me. My entire life had been spent carefree. Taking no responsibility for my actions and spending my parents hard earned money like water. This incident made me realize that my actions had unintentionally hurt others, and thus I decided to repent.
