People believe in all sorts of stuff in the world, some beliefs are silly, funny
or they can be serious. You can believe in anything you want because it just might
happen or not, you never know.
I believe that taking risks, making new decisions and always trying
something new can have consequences but it’s always worth it. You can learn from
your mistakes then you move on and try again. Pushing your self to take risks can
be challenging, but at least you’re trying.
I believe in what I believe because it relates to throughout my entire life.
I’m always taking risks, looking for something new to try and definitely making new
decisions. When it comes to making decisions, for me it can be anything. From what
clothes to wear and what sneaker to match, new foods or even a sport to play. I
never know if I might be missing out on anything. Life is, after all, too short so I live
mines to the fullest.
There was a bad experience with a decision I made one day. I learned a lot
from what happened. I was starting high school, my freshman year and I made
some promises that I knew I couldn’t keep. I promised this girl I was going out with
at that time, that I would never cheat on her. I kept it until school started, then at
my bus top I met another girl that I started liking her too. So we started going out
too and it was going alright on both sides until I got what I deserved. My sister, I
really could never trust her that much. So I told my sister I was going out with the
girl at my but stop and I thought I could trust her. Not really, she told her I had
another girlfriend. The other girl, the one I was going out with when school started,
called the other one and told her what was going on. I broke up with the first one.
That same night we talked again and she was heartbroken. It was mostly because of
the promise I made and I was too, because I regretted I ever did all of that. That’s
the way consequences comes in and gives you what you deserve, I learned to never
make a promise about something that you have a bad instinct feeling about. That
changed my entire life because I will never cheat again. I wouldn’t say it was worth
cheating on her because that’s not what I had in mind, but it sure thought me a
I believe that you should always take risks, make new decisions and always
try something new. Don’t worry about anything, that’s life, you make choices and
you don’t look back. Consequences are consequences, they will eventually get to
you. When they do so, be ready to take on obstacles.
