Forming Your Personality
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

When you are young, life is good, you form a personality as you grow, How things effect you as you go. These are the events that contribute to who you are.

Most of the time, everything is great fun. Not much is needed to be entertained. Games and play are new everyday. When summer time comes, the shoes must go. Jumping from shade to shade, all this is part of the play.

One day you get a new bike,yea, freedom at last. Going fast with the wind in your face, you are on top of the world. A red shelby flyer with a basket and carrier, is a sight to behold. You are so proud of your new prize possession. It's here to admire and the world to see.

When you are older the bike must go. No more cute lunch boxes. You walk everywhere with a brown bag lunch.

Now you are noticing that he's really cute. Funny you never noticed that before. Your hair must be perfect or you can't go. A pimple on your chin does not make you grin. You must wear the same things everyone else wears. This is important , it shows you care.

In school you are quiet and try to blend in. Stand back and admire the kids that are popular from afar. You think that they have it all, good looks, popularity, the best of the best. Then one day the popular kids are in the halls. They are laughing at one of their own, for trying too hard to please. After that she is left out in the breeze. You learn that things are not always as they seem.

These are some of the things that help to shape your personality. Finding out which of these things are really important and which ones are not. You have to have your own opinions. You can have a difference of opinion and still be friends. Always be yourself. Don't try so hard to blend in. It is necessary to be an indivedual. The most important things, are to be loving to your family and friends. To have empthy for people who are in need. Helping people . You are not the center of the universe. Walk in someones shoes before you judge. Everything is not black and white, there are shades of gray. This was the hardest thing for me to get. I thought that "It was either right or it's wrong". I took a long time to get that one in my head. Life is not that simple to understand.

Well I guess that's it for now. See you Soon?
