Jalen Boyd Final Blog Post #2 Section 12

This I Believe: Reasons

I believe that every choice we make and every action we take has a reason behind it. If we decide to go shopping, there is a reason. If we decide to make cake, there is a reason. Even if we decide to trip and fall, there is still a reason. All of these examples have reasons, the first may be because we have money to spend, the second may be because we want sugary goodness in our bodies and the third may be because gravity is not on our side. With all the possibilities for reason to support our choices, I do not understand when people respond with “I don’t know?” as their answer when asked why they did what they did or said what they said. They said it for a reason, so why not just tell the reason instead of being difficult? Perhaps they are embarrassed of the real reason or they were attempting to be funny but failed and are too ashamed to admit it. People tend to bug me when they are not responsible enough to admit why they did the things they did when asked about them. I have answers for everything I do. Whether they are silly or serious, they are my answers and will not change. I have no problem with people asking me why I do the things I do. I am prepared to give them my answers because I feel they have no right to question my reason for it. I believe being wrong can definitely happen so I admit to that as my reason if I were to do something detrimental. I believe this kind of responsibility is noble. There is not a lot of honesty in the world today so when someone demonstrates it, it is as if chivalry isn't dead. When in doubt, tell the truth. The truth is the real reason behind everything we do. That is what I believe anyway.
