Discovering the Self

Good Essays
Discovering yourself can be a very challenging task. It takes quite a long time to discover who you really are and what your purpose on this earth is. Even though it is a challenge, many factors can be a part of helping with that discovery. There are many essential elements to establishing who you are. Some of these elements may not always remain a part of you, as to which others could be permanent. It takes time to grow and find the elements that truly fit you with the help of your physical self, relationships with important people, and even with the help of yourself as a writer.
First off, I personally feel as if I have just recently made a great discovery of myself in the past year or so. While I was in high school, I sometimes would try too hard when presenting my physical self. There are always the flaws we see on ourselves. Even with those flaws, the more I grew older, the more I didn’t care to be like the rest. I believe the reason for this discovery was because I was on daily broadcast show at my school. Once I became more known at my school, I became more determined to be different because I knew people didn’t want to watch boring. I became terrified of being average. With this happening, I began to dress more colorfully and lively. I did things different with my hair. I began to gain more friends. This made me realize that I am meant to be a little out of the box and that it’s okay to be weird.
In addition to finding innovation on my own, there are many great people who have influenced me. One of the great influences would have to be my broadcast teacher. She would influence me to come out of my shell and grab people’s attention during our show. She wanted me to get out into the world after high school. Now I have moved away from my hometown and live in Salt Lake. With this happening, I have never felt more like myself. I am taking classes I want to take and not ones that most people would. Another great influence would have to be my grandma. She
