After reading the ideas expressed in Self-Reliance I have come to believe that self-reliance is the most important factor in life What should we rely on One answer ourselves I firmly believe that a person should only rely on themselves for everything and no one else regardless of the consequences Ever since I can remember I have wanted to study live and work in Italy where I come from It has always been a dream I had I was planning on applying to American colleges there during my senior year of high school Thats when a bitter divorce started between my parents that still hasnt ended So I put my plans on hold because I didnt want to leave my mother alone to go through that herself I have an older sister and brother but she was always more reliant on me since I still live at home Well Im still here and now I feel its going to be harder then ever to go My mother relies on me for everything She owns a business and Im responsible for housework and everything else So now Im stuck between doing something I have always wanted to do and staying here because I care too much for others to leave But slowly Im realizing that I need to do what I want to do This is my journey through life and I cannot rely on others or have others rely on me always Its good when people rely on others for things like advice and such but not when it impacts life choices This is my journey not anyone elses I cannot sacrifice my life and my feelings for others It sounds selfish but it is the only way I will truly be happy I need to be honest with myself and reliant on my feelings never hiding them This way I will be at peace with myself What do I need to accomplish my goals
