Explain why it is an important decision or choice for you?
We all make certain decision in life and those are the ones that shape our lives. I took that life changing decision when I was in class 10th. The city that I did my high school did not had many schools and I decided that I would do my further studies from a big city because that is where I wanted to be. So, I landed myself in Pune. I remember at that time I just wanted to go out, explore myself and do things. What followed after that were a series of wrong decisions made.
I chose the wrong school and made friends that did not do much benefit to me. It was that time that I became numb, feeling almost nothing and landed myself into many troubles. My parents had the most tough years of bringing me up and I remember thinking of myself as a complete failure. Two years later, when I landed myself into a college did things started changing and the final change took place when I got a job at a MNC.
It is now that I realize that no matter how the decision rolled out to be, no matter how the tough time it led me to, I now can make better decisions now. I do understand the importance of opportunities and hard work and realize that it is important to have a balance in life to be able to succeed.
The reason I think the decision was important because it taught me a lot of things and what amazes me the most is that the things that it did taught are ones that many elder to me don’t know. It is in those moments that I feel I have become wiser, do make mistakes but it has helped me in becoming more confident in life, more able to take risks and live life in my own terms and conditions.
