Not everyone is born wise. Instead, life experiences teach us how to be wise. At the same time, a person has to keep re-evaluating their life in order to decide whether they are on the right path. Sometimes, some people walk on the wrong path for a long time and nature is required to play its tricks to redirect that person’s path towards the right one. What I mean is there must be something in life that happens to push someone to their right path. Some may often experience this thing all through their life depending on their upbringings. However, others just need one shaking experience to properly change their course in life. The thing that is necessary to change a person needs not to be a good experience. Sometimes, a crisis of sorts is needed for the hard headed ones in order to lead them to different paths or to make them stop and take notice. This is commonly known as a turning point. One person’s turning point is different from that of another’s. Turning points also happen differently in terms of time. Some experience their turning points at their early stages of development. Others experience their turning point at their early adult life, while still others experience their major turning points when they are adults, married and have children. This turning point may be different for everyone but its major point is to make the crisis that has happened in an individual’s life worth it. Its point is to make the pain that one went through meaningful. As such, people are not supposed to allow their experiences to be wasted. Instead, they should use them as springboards for the changes they know that they need in life.
My turning point was when I started my 11th grade , I knew then and there I am going to learn many things. I learnt my self and about how I present myself in various situations . I learnt so many little but significant things and after that my life was never the same . I changed myself and got into the mode of evolution which made me a better human being internally and externally and of course I was happier too. It was that moment I knew my life turned into a better perspective.
