The most important factor in why someone chooses to do something is how that action will affect their personal feelings because humans value their feelings more than others '. Connie, from "Abuela Invents the Zero" by Judith Ortiz-Cofer, decided to put her feelings in front of Abuela 's when Connie chose not to help when Abuela could not find her way back to the pew in the church. When Connie noticed that Abuela was lost, she decided not to help her because, "I just know that on Monday my friends, and my enemies, in the barrio will have a lot of senile -grandmother jokes to tell in front of me" (Ortiz-Cofer para 14). This shows that Connie put her feelings before Abuela because she did not want to be teased by her friends. If Connie put others ' feelings in front of hers, she would have stood up and helped Abuela no matter how much she would have been teased because Abuela is family.
At that moment, she just wanted for her grandmother to go away. In the end, Abuela is infuriated and enraged at Connie for treating her so incompetently. Because we both had similar experiences and thoughts, we both learned the same moral. Unlike the way we both acted, family should be valued because it is more important than pride.

We would exchange kisses with her, I can vividly remember the touch of her silky two pieced nightwear as well as her smooth skin as she ran her narrow fingers through my hair as she tucked us in.

Our problems are not what define us, it is how we respond to them. Life defining decisions are built up over time leading you to a fork in the road. The path maybe simple but that does not mean that when you get to a fork in the road the decision will be any easier. Although I truly believe that people face more than one fork in the road in their lifetime. It is too unrealistic to say there's only one, because how would someone know they do not live your life.
The freedom of choice has forever had a connection in our everyday lives. We make choices every day without analyzing the true outcome of our decision. Some make choices more carelessly than others. However, they’re those who are affected greatly by choices made and those who can easily overcome them. The article, The Tyranny of Choice by Barry Schwartz, describes the differences between a maximizer and a satisficer and shows how a variety of choices is not always the best for a person.
Choices in life can make a big difference. The wrong choices can be deadly. In “The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare, fate is a disease and Friar Lawrence is a person whose only means is to do good. Fate is used as an object because it chooses what we do in life. In the tragedy Romeo is “ fortune's fool”(lll, i, 133).
