To be known is something that we all desire. We want to be known, but more importantly we want to be loved.
For me I want to be known as someone who showed love especially when its hard. I want to be known as someone who can listen and empathize. I want to be known as someone who understands. I want to be someone who others can rely on.
As a senior, everyday I face the issue of what I want to be in both the literal sense and the metaphorical sense. Where I want to go to college, what I want to study, and what I want to do are questions constantly on my mind. Often times, I find myself wanting to be known for my academic achievements, or my athletic achievements, or even my musical achievements. But never, do I contemplate what I want to be known for after all of the things I think are important no longer matter.
So maybe, its time that I take a step back and think about what I want to known for to the people that matter and less about the silly thinks I think matter.
