"Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? 'People can deal with problems on their own, so government assistance isn't necessary.''
There is a proverb that says "The wind does not blow as the ships desire". Our life consists of a sequence of phases. Therefore, problems are one of these phases that we should face in our life. I am of the belief that the way that you adopt to deal with problems varies from one person to another. For me, I strongly believe to depend on myself to solve problems. I feel that for two reasons, which I will explore in the following essay. First, I am that person who prefers to depend on herself in every single step in her life. Therefore, I prefer to face problems by my own. I am of that concept because I believe that each person chooses the path to be taken. Thus, you have to own the courage to face all your problems because you are the one who chose the path. For example, when I was in the last year of my high school, I did not fulfil the result which I wanted. Accordingly, I could not enroll in the faculty which I lived all my life dreaming of it. That was a big disappointment. However, I strongly believed that I was the cause of that result. May be, I did not study as much as it should be demanded. May be, I could not control the state of anxiety that I was passing through. As a result I joined a faculty that I was compelled to it because of my grades. I was determined to adapt to this problem because I was totally sure that I was the only one who put myself in that situation. Overall, I am of the belief that each problem pursues me is because of me. Thus, I should think of it and face by my own. Second, I am that person who does not prefer to let people know anything about my life. I always wear a smile even if I am struggling. For example, when my engagement broke up after four year relationship, everyone started to give their words of consolation. I never preferred this way. Moreover, I believe that telling my problems increases my suffering. Thus, I prefer to heal myself by myself. In conclusion, we are humans with different personalities and different mentalities. Therefore, solving problems differs from one person to another. For me, if I had a problem, I would prefer to face it by thinking and working on it by my own.
