Being indecisive is typical of teenagers, so it is said. We cannot seem to make up our minds about anything these days. Girls and guys, both, have this same problem. We all want so many things but do not know the right roads to take to get us there.

            As teenagers, many of us are still trying to discover who we are. We want to be an amazing people with the best personalities that everyone will love, but we do not know what decisions to make to get there. I cannot tell you what the right decisions are; you have to choose them for yourself.

            There are many roads you can take to get to the place where you want to be. Countless roads are the easy routes that teenagers tend to take because they do not require much sacrifice and effort. Those are the decisions that usually end up being the wrong ones. They most likely will take us one step forward and two steps backwards, so to say, in our journey to becoming successful adults. Being able to make a hard decision because we know it is the better one for our futures and what will make us prosper in our daily lives.

            Making decisions is one of the most important things in life because they determine how we live. We have it so easy, being in our parents’ care but also being able to make our own choices. We can be as independent as we want, but still have the security of our parents guiding us in our toughest decisions. The more we grow up, the tougher our decisions will be and the more we will have to make on our own. Taking the hard route is what will help mold us into the adults that our society needs in this world today. We are the next growing generation who will soon be taking over and running America. We need the right people to be the ones in charge, and those are the teens that made the hard decisions. So make the decisions you know will benefit you in the long run, not just the ones “right now.”
