For me, it is difficult to define exact moment in my life that was a turning point. Actually, in my opinion, in every situation we have to draw conclusions and make useful lessons. I have met a lot of people and they are all different, as well as their way of life and their outlook on life.
But, in spite of this, we have something in common – we face difficulties and problems. Life is full of surprises and it is impossible to predict what will happen tomorrow.
Some people think that the turning point in their life was when they met their true love or when they had children. For me, these moments are important, but they are not decisive. I believe that the most important thing is to be able to learn from our mistakes and to become better people as a result.
Some of them learn from their mistakes and draw on their own life experiences, while others are influenced by the external side. This can be our parents or mass opinion, which we are all constantly bombarded with via TV screens, publications, newspapers, and the internet.
Life is full of choices. But sometimes we simply do not have time to think about them, and we just follow the flow. Life always offer us second chances. The main thing is to realize that you need it.
There are two key moments that we should pay attention to. The first one – is the moment when we make a choice, and the second one – is the moment when we realize that this was a turning point in our life. Life always gives us a chance to change something. We just need to be attentive enough to catch it.
I remember one situation from my own life when I had to make an important choice that would change everything. I was at my friend’s birthday party and there was this girl that I really liked. We were talking and she suddenly kissed me. It was a turning point in my life because I realized that I was gay. From that moment on everything changed – the way I looked at people, the way I felt about myself. It was a turning point because it made me who I am today.
If you are facing a similar situation, or if you have already made a choice that you now regret, do not worry. Life always gives us second chances. The main thing is to realize that you need it.
Most individuals, I believe, try to live according to a well-defined pattern set by the mass media. We must excel in school before we can enroll at a prestigious institution and obtain a high-paying career. But, despite these apparent positives, there are several drawbacks.
First of all, we are not guaranteed to achieve our goals. Life is full of surprises and it doesn’t always go the way we want it to. Secondly, even if everything goes according to the plan, we might end up being unhappy with our lives.
I’m not saying that it’s wrong to follow the conventional path. But I believe that it’s important to be open to new experiences and be ready to change our plans if necessary. And that was exactly what happened to me.
A few years ago, I decided to drop out of university. It was a tough decision, but I don’t regret it for a second. After leaving university, I traveled around Europe and Asia for several months. And during this time, I realized that I wanted to pursue a career in photography.
Now, I’m back in school studying photography. And even though it’s been tough at times, I’m really enjoying it. I think that this is the best decision I’ve ever made in my life. And I’m grateful for the opportunity to have experiences that has led me to where I am today.
They can all be seen in movies. We may observe as teenagers smoke, drink alcohol, and spend the bulk of their free time dancing, being excessively concerned with their appearance, even losing their virginity while still quite young, and then marry but this appears to be OK. In real life, “happy endings” do not occur as frequently as they do on television screens.
Life is full of disappointments and adversities. And only when you are faced with some problems you realize that it is not a game. So, the turning point of my life was when I lost my best friend in a car accident.
It was on a Thursday night. My friends and I had been to a party and we were on our way home. We were laughing and joking and generally having a good time. I was sitting in the back seat of the car, and my friend who was driving was also in the back seat. My other friend who was sober was sitting in the front passenger seat.
We were driving down a dark road, and we came to a sharp turn. My friend who was driving took the turn too fast, and we lost control of the car. We hit a tree, and the car flipped over. I was thrown from the car, and my friend who was driving was killed instantly. My other friend was also seriously injured.
That accident changed my life forever. I realized that I could have been killed, or worse, killed someone else. I realized that life is precious, and that we should not take it for granted. Since that accident, I have been more careful about how I live my life. I no longer take unnecessary risks, and I try to be as safe as possible. That accident was a turning point in my life, and it taught me a valuable lesson about Life.
In my view, every person’s life has turning points at which their perspective, interests, attitudes toward life and other people are altered as a result of breaking pink glasses into little pieces. In such circumstances, intelligent individuals draw conclusions.
Life gives different “presents” – pleasant and not so much. And the way we accept these gifts depends on our maturity, intelligence and wisdom.
My turning point came when my father passed away. I was 13 years old then, and it was a real shock for me. Life seemed unfair – why did my dad have to die so young? I was angry with God, with the world, with everyone around me. It felt like everyone was against me.
But then I realized that life goes on, no matter what happens to us. We have to be strong and carry on, because our loved ones would want us to be happy. That’s when I started to look at life from a different perspective. I started to value every moment, appreciate my friends and family more, and not take anything for granted.
Now I know that life is precious, and we should never waste a single day of it. We should live life to the fullest and make the most of every opportunity that comes our way. Because you never know when your last day will be. So make sure that each day is a turning point in your life – a day that you’ll always remember positively. Life is too short to waste on negativity and regrets. Live your life to the fullest!
