We are what we do.

In our lives from childhood to adulthood our actions determine our level of understanding our character and how we react to various situations. By turning off the tap while brushing your teeth, shows that you are being considerate to the environment, it shows that you care or by declining plastic bags whenever you are at a supermarket. Many of our parents taught us values and respect and when to have manners. Using the very important ‘thank you’ which many so easily forget yet, it plays great emphasis as to what type of person you are. Saying thank you is to recognize the kindness given to you and you returning this kindness.

It is our simple actions that define who we are and what we do, if you are a good person you would do good things yet, if you are bad you will do bad things. It is as simple as that. We are driven by things that make us beautiful, to have social acceptance, injustice or justice actions to learn. Human actions are driven by societies reaction; what would be the reaction of my friends if I change my hair colour or make myself look pretty today. One can say that it is a way for us to be accepted in our social circles, family or friends and not seem different as we are all mindwashed to think differently. Therefore it is important to think before we act as what we decide to do will impact our actions and we would have to live with the consequences forever. A person who steals, is considered a thief even though they have never stolen before yet, that one moment, that one action determined a new course of his/her life.


  1. Well written. i cant add anything to say because you have said everything that there is to say. could't say it better than that.

  2. If people only knew the full extent of what their actions mean, they would be completely different people.
