What kind of person are you: active or passive?

Do you put others before yourself?

What is one thing you wish you could change about yourself?

Pick a word that makes you feel the strongest feelings:

Each year, do you mostly make new friends or have stronger, lasting relationships with old friends?

When a deadline is quickly approaching, what do you do?

If someone was being mean/rude to you what would you do?

Have you ever felt bad about yourself or for someone else?

"Weeds are flowers, too, once you get to know them."

"Weeds are flowers, too, once you get to know them."

You are a people person. You love meeting new people and lending them a hand when they need it. You have an open mind and believe that it is wrong to judge people before you get to know them. People are people no matter what they look like or where they come from. To you, just because someone looks different, does not mean that they are different. The one new kid in class that no one bothers to get to know, you do not hesitate to introduce yourself and start and conversation with him/her. You give that person a chance to feel like he/she belongs and both of you are better people because of that. Just because weeds are unwanted and not as attractive as flowers, does not make them any less than flowers. Everyone just needs a little love.

“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.”

“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.”

You have someone or some people in your life that you love and care about more than anything. There's nothing you wouldn't do for them. Saying goodbye to them for a day is hard enough so you could not imagine how you would feel saying goodbye to them forever. You have been through every aspect of life together and are practically inseparable. Whether a parent, a brother, a sister, a best friend, you make the most of your day and theirs by spending time with them and simply having a great time. It's a great feeling to know you have people who would do just the same for you.

“People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.”

“People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.”

Maybe you don't have a huge list of accomplishments like your friend has, but that doesn't mean you are a nobody. You are a reasonable person and you know there are some things that just aren't for you. If you love to play video games and talk to your friends all day that's doing something. You are simply doing whatever makes you happy instead of doing things just to make other people happy. You're a laid back kind of person in no rush to go anywhere. You are happy because you are true to yourself instead of pretending to be someone you're not. Doing nothing is only as good or as bad as you make it. Just keep cruising along and enjoy the ride.

“Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.”

“Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.”

You do not like to worry about things so you just take it one day at a time. You believe that things will fall into place when it is the right time so you let life run its course. Instead of getting anxious over that big exam or job interview, you can relax knowing that you have already prepared for it ahead of time. You are confident, free, optimistic, and find that success comes from living in the moment. You are the calm even when the situation looks doubtful because you know that storms do not last forever and after it blows through, everything must keep moving forward as they did before.

"You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes."

"You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes."

Sometimes you may find it difficult to go out and meet new people let alone become friends with them. But that doesn't mean it has to be impossible. The world is huge, just because there are a few people who intimidate you or you just to particularly like doesn't mean everyone is like that. In fact, there are many people just like you who feel the same way. If you stay in one area the whole time, you will never get to meet the many amazing people out there. It's like a game of football: You have to reach for the end zone, it's not going to come to you; you're opponents will, but that's not what you want. You have to go out there and get what you want, or someone else will. You may think you are surrounded by only your opponents or people who dislike you, but once you keep moving past that, you're in a whole new world with many opportunities waiting for you.

"You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."

"You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."

You may not be the best at everything but don't let that discourage you from trying something out. People often think that they're not good enough just because they can't do something. The people who care about you will love you no matter what you can or cannot do. Just because you failed that science quiz does not mean you can't do well in anything else; maybe you're not a science person. Just because you cried during the movie doesn't mean you're not strong, maybe you're sensitive to certain things. And just because you chose not to go out at night alone doesn't mean you're not brave; you're being cautious and this is actually a smart choice. Having weaknesses in some areas does not define you as a whole. No one is good at everything; we're only human. If you always downplay yourself, you will always think something is wrong with you, when really nothing is. With the support of the people you love, the possibilities are endless for what you can actually achieve. You just have to take a chance and trust yourself.
