Most of us have made this type of choice—to go to college, to get married or break off a relationship. Discuss a choice you have made that influenced the direction of your life. Explain the situation you were dealing with in detail. Explain the reasons you had for making the choice you did. Discuss what your life may have been like if you had made a different choice.
