I agree with this article; especially when it talks about not pleasing everyone. I was wanting to become more active in school one year. My friend had told me to try out for the school cheerleading team. When I went home and told my family about my idea they started to laugh at me. Coming from a family of softball players they thought cheerleading was the stupidest sport in the world. Unfortunately knowing I wasn’t going to be able to please my family and myself, so I told my mom that I wanted to do this. I wound up being a part of the competitive team. My family eventually got over it but they weren’t too happy with me in the beginning.
I’m probably going to keep this information with me forever. I’m going to try to use it to motivate myself into doing better in school so I can secure my future. I don’t usually talk to my parents about preparing for the real world, so reading this article is defiantly helping to get me ready. It helps you to think about the things that you don’t usually believe will actually happen to you. Then it not only shows you it does, it also shows you that you’re not the only one going through it.
