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
I stay with this learning style because it is the one that I grow the most in. I can look back and see how far I have come as a person and know that I am a better person. It is not about the knowledge it is about me. I finished up my bachelor degree in 2014 and it was not really a big deal to me because I did not grow much personally. I read a lot of chapters and wrote a lot of papers but they did not change me much. Yet there are books that I have read that changed me completely and excited and encouraged me to stay on my path. Schooling makes me tired, Education makes me excited.
