Make Your Own Decisions. Don’t Let Other Control You

What I Have Learned

In my life I have learned things are not just handed to you. When you are young, yea maybe things are easy, but things change it gets a lot harder in life. Your life is what you make it. it is your life you shape it how you want it to be. You have to take action in your life everyone has talent and some people just have yet to show it. I know everyone can admit to great things you just have to try and try and try till you find your thing you’re good at. I have changed by when I was young I let people tell me how to do things and what to do. Then I realized, no things are going to be different i’m not the perfect image i am how I want to be. I act the way I do because of the people I hang out with. Everyone has good traits and bad traits I take peoples good traits and use them in an even better way.

Michele

My Moms influence on the theme is when I was young I got told what to do a lot by other kids at school. My mom started to tell me not to do what they say. My Mom said to do what is best for me and what I should do when these things start happening. Now today when people tell me to do the wrong thing I don't do it. I do the right thing and the responsible thing.

Erich

My Brother had a big impact he would always talked to me about anything. If something bad happened I could talk to him. He influenced me because he rubbed off on me he has a cocky attitude but I used that to my advantage and made myself confident in whatever choice I made. My brother is the reason I got into wrestling. Now wrestling takes my mind off things. Wrestling makes me keep my grades up so I can go to the meets.

My Plot

In my life I have learned things are not just handed to you. When you are young, yea maybe things are easy, but things change it gets a lot harder in life. Your life is what you make it. it is your life you shape it how you want it to be. You have to take action in your life everyone has talent and some people just have yet to show it. I know everyone can admit to great things you just have to try and try and try till you find your thing you’re good at. I have changed by when I was young I let people tell me how to do things and what to do. Then I realized, no things are going to be different i’m not the perfect image, am how I want to be. I act the way I do because of the people I hang out with. Everyone has good traits and bad traits I take peoples good traits and use them in an even better way.


When I was young I was told what to do and pushed around (Not Literally) by kids at school. I would do what they said because I didn't know any better. When I told my mom what was happening at school she told me to do what was best for me. I went to school and started doing my own thing and it was the right thing. That has shaped the way I am today I do what I think is best for me. Yea, a lot of the times I make mistakes but i'm human we always make mistakes; sometimes not as often as others but we all make mistakes.

Turning Point

The turning point in my life is when I got in into 6th grade. Everything started to getting to get better from there. Nothing exciting really happened after that. I started getting better at school and started getting back on track.
