I just want to clear up a few things about yesterday’s post (What do you want to be when you grow up?)
The real reason I wrote the last post was because we ask that question all the time to high school seniors. It’s more of a conversation starter than anything and most of them have no idea what they want to do with their lives (which is perfectly fine!) It just got me thinking about my life and all the things that I wanted to be throughout it.
I am not angry or mad at anyone. I do not hold any grudges. I was just stating things that happened within my life to give others an understanding. That’s all I mean to do through this blog. While I do have fun writing about whatever suits me, I also hope to inspire people or help them learn from my mistakes. (Sometimes, too, people read a littledeepinto things which are not meant to be very deep (*wink wink* *nudge nudge* ‘say no more’)).
What I really should have done was not let others tell me that I could or could not do something with my life. I should have said ‘screw it, if I want to do this, then I’m going to’, but I was a kid (under 10 years old kid). So I don’t blame myself or anyone else. I probably would have grown out of that phase on my own anyway.
For the most part, I feel that I don’t let others dictate what I should do.
In 5th grade, I was not picked to be in the advanced reading group even though I felt that I should be. They were reading ‘Tuck Everlasting’ which I wanted to read too but was bascially told it was too hard for me so why even try.
So I basically told them ‘I’m going to read it anyway and I’ll show you’. So I did. My mom actually bought it for me from the Scholastic book thingy (thingy is the technical term by the way) that was handed out in class and then the books you had bought were given to you in class at a later date. So that same 5th grade teacher (or reading teacher I dont remember now) who had told me I couldn’t read that book, was handing me that book. I loved it! It was one of my favorite books when I was young, and as far as I remember, I didn’t have any issues reading it.
So the moral of my story is, don’t let others dictate your life. Live it for you.
