My decision was the right decision because it can be applied to life to help you comprehend the intentions of those around you. In the short stories, “The Cask of Amontillado” and “A Rose for Emily” the protagonists in both works of literature were, for the most part, thought to be decent people. That was until their true intentions were brought to light and it was discovered that they had both done something horrendous, resulting in others thinking of them in a much darker manner. Unfortunately, similar situations have a tendency to occur in life. For the most part, the people in your circle of friends truly care for you, they want you to live a good life, and will do whatever is in their power to help you achieve the goals you’ve set out for yourself. However, there are a few “friends” who do not want this. They, for unknown reasons, have decided they want to make life more difficult for you by
An important rule to live by is When you set a goal don't be too quick to make an exit plan. This means that if you really want to achieve something in life, but you’re thinking about what you are going to do if it doesn’t work out then you are already thinking about failing. This is an important rule to live by because if you always have a way to get out of what you are trying to do then it is easy to not finish.
I was having mixed feelings of something else in my own mind. I didn’t want a boyfriend at the time. I just wanted to focus on school to do my best to keep my grades up to their highest. There wasn’t a need in my life for a boyfriend, neither a want. Yet I was still put in the position to choose either of my friends. They never got it, nor understood what I wanted. They just wanted me to pick one or the other there was no option of choosing both. I just wanted to keep my friends. If I were to select one, the other would be heartbroken, either way someone would be devastated and have a ruined
Accepting only the best decisions in life is not always the right choice. Experiencing new things can increase people’s knowledge, and become someone of new and different value during their time in this world. They are able to obtain something that everyone will cherish when they face horrific situations, and overcome it. With all those successes, people are then given the chance to go down a new road. The change may be good, or may even be something terrible, but in the end, people will become their own person with a unique mindset of things. Taking opportunities can lead to positive or negative change.
When I was in high school, I would allow my "friends" to influence an abundance of my choices. The mistakes I made reflected in how I acted at home, how managed school work, and how I took care of myself. What happened in my early high school years has become a factor as to why I made the decision to take social services.
"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly", was once said by Antoine De Saint-Exupery. This is an accurate quote to live by and refer to daily since following your instincts is usually the best decision for yourself. It leads you to do exactly what you want to do, instead of anyone getting to your mindset. This quote can also be shown in literature-characters go through hardships within there own minds. But when a third party expresses their own opinion of the problem then the character becomes confused and eventually withdrawled from what they really want. Accordingly, two works of literature that best show how following your heart(mind) is the better decision would be Tennesse Williams play The Glass
Whereas if you take the wrong path you will end up facing many problems and struggles. Since I have been a child, I have learned that always do what is right. At times truth may cause a lot of stress, but you should never give up on what is right for you.
That's the world's greatest lie.” Whatever is happening you yourself are doing that. There is no fate that is controlling you, and when you give up you are destined to fail. “Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure. ”It may be a hobby, a profession, a place, a person, or a pet, but it’s only when we stop and acknowledge what it is our hearts want that we will find our greatest treasures. These are the treasures that will bring joy and happiness into our lives, this is where the heart is. “The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight. ”Never give up. Always move forward and never stop learning. See your failures as valuable lessons on the road to success, learn from them, grow with them and never give up on your dreams. “People are capable at any time in their lives, of doing what they dream of. ”There is no such thing as too old or too young when it comes to chasing your dreams and there is no such thing as a right time or a wrong time, either. Wherever we are in the world, and in whatever circumstances we find ourselves, only we can decide to take the leap of faith and make our dreams
Growing up, my family often let us form our own opinions and perceptions. There is one specific event that occurred in my life that has led me to being more decisive without others opinions. That event was when I got my knee stuck in the teeth of an escalator. In short, my shoe got stuck in between two steps and when I went to run my knee cap dived into the teeth of the escalator. The pain was so intense that I couldn't move so my sister had to physically pull my knee out of the sharp blade. I ended up getting stitches on the Bauer Family's kitchen table. During the numbing process I was offered pizza or Jackie Bauer's Nintendo DS. At this moment I felt as though I had no decisions to make regarding my injury. Although my options with only one of them I took both the slice of pizza and Nintendo. Believe it or not this event is reason I don't have much influence of my decisions today. Choosing to eat pizza while in pain was not the best idea for I quickly regurgitated it, however, being able to choose between these two items helped develop the decision making I do today. In these moments of excruciating pain on the chilling kitchen table I was able to make a decision for myself, forgetting about my fleshy wound and instead focusing on the delicious pizza and Nintendo. As a result of this accident, I made the decision to attend Mercy High School. My decision on attending Mercy has nothing to do with the fact that I am a legacy. My mother and my sister both attended Mercy but I knew I needed decide if Mercy was the best place for me. After research and multiple shadowing days I decided that Mercy was indeed the right school for me. The school provides great resources for students to act on and I saw this as a great opportunity for my future. Making decisions without the oversight and perspective of other individuals has certainly proven that I am a
Many times, the decisions we make affect and hurt the closest friends and family we love the most. (Lex Luger, n.p.). When this occurs, we as humans are left with two vital paths to choose from; strive to make a better version of yourself, or keep hurting those beloved ones, and eventually, watch them leave. For those who become better, will receive great power, and therefore, great responsibility. Although on the other hand, those who continue to hurt those dearest to them, will be left with nothing but themselves. In other words,until you see what really is needed in both one's self and one's surroundings, only then will you thrive.
Because you tend toward excessive individualism at the best of times, consider the impact of your decision on the whole community. Sometimes an individual actually benefits by restraining autonomy for the good of the community. As you consider what your duty is, remember that others may see the situation differently or need different supports to fulfill their duties. As you learn to consider the perspectives of others in your decision making process, you will live out the best of your ideals with compassion and care for others.
Then I have the people in my life that have belittled me along the way. They have never had confidence in me to do the right thing. They have always told me that I was wrong, or that I was making mistakes. These people make me feel like I will not choose the
I mean, seriously! This brings me to another very legit topic… morals. I know we all, as extremely smart teenagers, are aware of the stupid “rights and wrongs” that our parents disparage us with daily when we come home from school. But why do the right thing now? We’re probably going to live a lot longer and there’s a slim chance that we’re going to die tomorrow, so let’s just postpone good behavior and live it up while we can! There’s no excuse like, “I’m gonna screw up, it’s inevitable, I just gotta learn from it.” People who live life in accordance with this quote are the true intellects of our society. Not the silly quiet kids who do the right thing, and already have their future planned out, and who will probably lead meaningful lives with a fat bank account, blah blah blah. Bottom line, the best piece of advice I can give you is: Pine for the constant social approval of your peers. In 10 years, you’ll definitely care what they think, and your potentially successful future is completely contingent upon whether or not you sat in the student section (painted up, of course) at high school football
Making choices can affect any and everything in your life whether it’s dealing with your family or just everyday situations. Everyone in life is faced with good and bad choices that can either have a good outcome on your life or it can make a turn for the worst. Yes, everyone wants to make good choices in life. But does that always happen? Nine times out of ten know. Recently, I made a bad choice that affected my life in numerous ways for instance when I got caught shoplifting my parents looked down on me as if I was this thief. I’m very embarrassed of my actions but there’s nothing I can do to erase it I can only make this a learning experience and make better choices next time around. As teenagers
