Throughout life there are going to be a lot of important moments. So far in my life I haven't had many that are important because I'm still young. So I suppose one of the most important moment in my life was when I was laying in bed just thinking about myself and how I needed to change myself to be what I wanted.
No doubt it sounds strange, but that night I realized what others think of me shouldn't have importance. I know it still sounds strange because why did I even care in the first place. Well it all started in elementary school mean compliments, but it didn't bother me because at first I didn't care. Then, I would start to think about all things they would say and I felt like I needed to change who I was to make them stop and like me. That being the case, I always compared myself to others and I started to pretend to be things that I'm not. After that I don’t think anything really much because they would still say mean things, but I continued to pretend. Then middle school came and I met new people and I thought that maybe this year I could start all over. The entire school year I was doing well in my classes and it was good year. Three months later seventh grade came and it was way different than sixth grade. That year I towards half of the school year I started to change myself again. Despite that this change wasn't a pleasant change. I would always think negative and stress myself about school and that’s when my grades weren't that good. I wouldn’t care about anything related to school, but somehow I still managed to pass all my classes.
Now this summer going into eight grade it was that one night that I realized that I needed to change to who I would like to be. I was thinking about all these thoughts and now I know that being myself is more important than trying to impress everyone. Finally took me so long to realize it, but that night I realized other things about myself and I know now who I am and what I would like to be. Even if I don’t succeed at everything I still try my best because of that one important moment.
