Throughout my entire existence I have put others before myself and considered their wants and needs over my own. It didn’t matter how I felt about anything, as long as everyone else around me was happy, then I was happy. It is my senior year now and I’m going to be an adult soon and it is time I started thinking about what I want in life, and not just about what others want. In the year 2013 I’m going to start my year by thinking of myself and really deciding on what I want out of life no matter what others say.
Nothing is going to stop me
now that I’m not afraid to say no to people and stand up for what I want. I plan to choose what I want to do, even if it means making others angry or upset. I am the one who has to live with the choices I make so it shouldn’t matter what others think. I want to further my education and work my hardest on getting where I want to be in life. No one is going to change my mind on anything, whether it be the college to attend or the subject I want to major in. I am going to attend Fort Scott Community College and I am going to major in psychology and nothing that anybody says is going to change my mind. If I decided that once I get there it is not the place for me or that I have found new interests, then I will decide what to do, but it is no one else’s choice but my own. In order for me to accomplish this goal I will need to be completely honest with everyone about my feelings and views on certain things. I cannot just avoid talking about it and hope it goes away, because problems will always come back if they are not taken care of. I am going to make sure to get my point across even if it means upsetting people.
This year I haven’t been as straight forward on what I want in life, but my resolution is going to change that. I am going to be sure to do what I want and not worry about any other opinions. The past is in the past and my plan is to make the future brighter for myself and for once not revolve it around what others want.
