I have often wondered what makes me who I am. Could it be the way I dress, the values I have? Or the people I associate myself with. Maybe it’s a combination of all of them.

I am 17 years old. I would like to consider myself as a very kind and caring person, someone who is easy to get along with. I have been through alot in my life, looking back I would have never guessed I would be in the place I am today. I think thats why im such a strong person. I believe that I am the way I am because of the ways i’ve learned to cope with events that happened in my past.

I would describe myself as being empathetic. Being able to put myself in other people’s perspective, helps me to understand how one can be feeling. I think having empathy can be a very good quality. Having empathy helps me not to judge people by the way they look, or how they act. It also helps because I treat people the way I want to be treated.

A bad habit I have is overthinking. Overthinking tends to drive me crazy, I never do anything without completely thinking of all the possible consequences. When I was younger I never had a problem with overthinking, or thinking of all of the possible outcomes. I would do things without thinking sometimes, which lead me to the wrong path. Even though overthinking can drive me crazy, I think it has really helped shape me into the person I am today. I would rather overthink everything than to completely ignore all of the consequences.So I guess overthinking has helped me for the better.
