Innate Nature of Man

Every person’s goal and focus in life can be derived from thier family influence, religious upbringing, and cultural surroundings. I believe there won’t ever be more then one you at any time. You are here to make your impact, no matter how influential it may seem. I only have one life to live, so why not make it as worth while as possible.

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”

-Oscar Wilde

At my age, I’m impacted by media, television, and the continued increase frenzy of internet. I’m surrounded by high lifestyles with expensive cars, ridiculous houses, and powerful careers. I still don’t know if that is the lifestyle that fits me, but at this point it is hard to turn away from. A dream that is mine now may no longer be there ten years down the road. Only extended years of trial and error will dictate my area of work. I want to find what makes me happy and if possible what brings the money too.

As much as the live’s of people I don’t know impact me, the people close to me change and mold my values even more. My family will always be there to praise what I do, while also keeping my priorities in line. Making my family proud is one quality I find important in my life.

People fit together as a puzzle, even if you can’t always see the whole picture. Your outlook on life changes through the years but in the end you find a place that fits for you. At this point in my life I can’t find my hole to fill. I live life day in and day out asserting my opinion. I’m not afraid to let people know how it is, what I think is right and what is wrong. If you don’t separate your opinions and beliefs from that of other people, you won’t be able experience the full depth of your personality.
