Introduction

´╗┐Who do you think is more important ? you, your family or others? In life we constantly get told to sometimes put people ahead of us, in terms of being nice and polite; but then we get told to be selfish at times, however in a life threatening situation who would you pick? In this essay I am going to explore different sides to this question, in a scenario in which you would have to pick someone, who would it be? Firstly I am going to be talking about myself, why I would or wouldn?t pick myself in a particular circumstance. I think I am very important in life, as every decision I make will affect me. Things I say or do reflect back on me as a person and throughout life I will probably pay more attention to myself as I grow older. ...read more.

Middle

I am showing that I care and wouldn?t mind them going ahead of me in the queue. My family are quite important to me, however for other people it does depend how you see your family and how close to them you are. Again depending on the situation is what I would do. In addition it depends also which part of my family it is; if it?s something to do with my close family, my mum, dad and brother then I would put them first. However if it was an aunt or uncle I rarely saw then I would have to think about it as the past would change my view whether or not they are important. Unless its close family then I would probably say the rest of my very large family aren?t as important as myself or my mum, dad or brother. ...read more.

Conclusion

I think that I am quite important to myself and to my friends and family. My family are quite important to me and each other; and other people who help me are also important. However I think that I myself am most important because every decision I make will affect me and others. In addition, not in a selfish way, but I think that people tend to sometimes think about themselves a bit more than they do for other people. However it does depend on your nature and how you approach different people, for example you could be very selfish and just think for yourself but then someone could be too selfless and always putting people before themselves. I think it depends on the way you see life. Overall I think that I am most important, then my close family and friends and then other family, and after that other people. ...read more.
