You know, I’m the type of person who feels that every sing decision you make paves the character you are to become. That doesn’t necessarily mean whatever you chose in life defines you, because it doesn’t. I guess what I’m trying to say is, no matter what you have picked at the moment, everything you have gone through has been a small incision in what your personality is today.
I have made many mistakes in my life, just as all of you have. I used to cut classes at school, talked backed to my mother, gave the wrong boys attention and the list can go on and on. I wish I paid more attention in school, maybe if I continued I wouldn’t be at the job that I am now. I wish I didn’t always bicker with my mother, maybe we would have a better relationship, many times I feel like we’re strangers. Maybe I should have paid attention to the the nice boys, instead of the bad boys who got me in trouble.
There are many things I wish I could change, but do I regret them..maybe. Will I change them , if given the opportunity? Probably not. I have grown up to be a confident, stubborn and loud mouthed Latina. I am humble, carefree and love very hard. Maybe if I have changed these things I wouldn’t be this way now. If something so simple as of the choice of a boy I gave mind to, maybe I wouldn’t be so strong, maybe I never learned how to stand up for myself, maybe if I was with nice boy I would have ended up gullible. Maybe if things would have gone differently in other situations, I wouldn’t have been so independent, and always worked hard for what I wanted, maybe if my relationship with my mother was better, I would have been spoiled, still living at home with no life experience.
There are a lot of maybe’s in life.
But I am not one of them.
