I know that many people really enjoy this story by Jane Austen. I find that I struggle with this story because I don’t like how Anne was persuaded so easily away from marrying the man she wanted to marry. I had to spend some time thinking about when I am easily persuaded. When I was young it was very easy to persuade me. I wanted to do what was popular. When I was a teenager I wanted to do what I thought would be fun. Now I find that when I am easily persuaded to do something it is because I have forgotten who I am and what I want to do with my life. When I know who I am and what my goals are I can only be persuaded to do things that I already had on my list of things that I wanted or should do. The lesson for me in this book is to look at who I really want to become and make sure I don’t lose sight of that vision otherwise I might be persuaded to leave my course
