Focusing On Myself In Homer's The Odyssey

116 Words1 Page
My biggest challenge so far has been focusing on myself rather than others. I would like to become more self-confident and accepting of myself and others, but it’s difficult when I’m always worrying about how my fellow students see me. “(Telemachus:) I think what you have said will not be accomplished. What you mean is too big. It bewilders me. That which I hope for could never happen to me, not even if the gods so willed it.” (The Odyssey, 3.294-298) Telemachus and I hold the same doubt: I’m not confident that I’ll ever be perfectly happy with myself. The best way to find out, though, is to push myself every day to be better.
