Sometimes if you push someone else to do something they don’t want to do, they will eventually cave in and do it, but if their character is strong, the results might turn out differently. If someone has a strong character, they will stick to what they believe in and go with their guts. What I am trying to point out is not to let others control you and make decisions for you, stay to true to who you are and it will make your character stronger. Just like in Oedipus, Creon tries to get Oedipus to come over to Thebes, and Oedipus refuses because he believes that decision wouldn’t be good for him. Creon begs and begs for Oedipus to come, but Oedipus sticks to his decision and Creon eventually loses. Throughout all her fathers difficulties Antigone sticks by her father’s, Oedipus, side and was there no matter what and loved him. So in the end, be yourself because if others don’t take you for what you are, then they don’t deserve to be a part of your life. Your friends will love you for you. STAY STRONG.
