On the outside, you can decide what I am. On the inside, however, I am only one thing: myself. I think that if people were to see me for what I am on the inside, they would treat me differently. Part of them would most likely want to stay away, because I will be the first to admit that I can be rather cruel to some people. On the other hand, I think that my personality draws people towards me. I am mostly an outgoing person, with room for those rare occasions of being shy. In other words, even though I may appear shy to some people on the outside, that is just because I do not know them very well.
I pretty much am a huge surprise to most people. Believe it or not, I do have feelings, I am not crazy, I have no anger management issues, and I am not a violent person. I think that because some of my ambitions are hard for people to understand, they just write me off as being any of the above things. A great example of this would be the fact that I am going to enlist in the military upon graduating from high school. I have heard it all from everybody. My dad thinks it is a man’s place to fight, my brother-in-law thinks I am “too smart” to just enlist, my mom thinks I will be dead in two months, and my sisters think I am in it for the hot bodies. It seems as if no one can accept the fact that I want to enlist because of patriotic reasons alone.
This is just one example of how often times I do things completely unexpected of me, and way out of the ordinary. I am myself, and only myself. I do not live for anyone else except for me. This is not selfish; this is being true to oneself. And as simple as that, my soul is defined.
