“To find yourself, think for yourself.” –Socrates
Many people these days just do what they think is right according to other people. They don’t think for themselves and live for themselves. There are so many different influences that affect us as adults but there are even more that affect kids. Between the TV shows, newspapers, magazines, the internet, and movies the influences are never stopping.
If you think for yourself you can accomplish great things, if you think of all the inventions that people have come up with they didn’t just follow they thought for themselves and lead. I know that when I come up with ideas for myself I realize what is important to me and what I can accomplish. I know that in times in my life I have let people tell me what to do but I have come to realize that when I let them do that I am not being myself and not expressing myself the way I should. I now know that I can’t regret things that have happened and I need to move on, which I am working on by sticking up for myself.
This quote should really make you stop and think. Who am I? What do I want in life? What do I want today? To accomplish these questions you have to be true to yourself and think for yourself. The challenge of today is to try to think for yourself and not let people push you around and tell you what to do. Life is what you make it so what are you going to do today?
