Often, people are so quick to say they do not enjoy doing a certain activity or spending time with a certain person.

The problem is that most of the people who say these things have never actually done the things they say they dislike.

We at The Daily Eastern News are firm believers that you have to try something to know whether or not you like or dislike it.

It is normal to be afraid to try new experiences and things, because as human beings we are so used to being in our own comfort zone.

Our comfort zone is what we have been accustomed to for our entire lives, so when new opportunities come along, it is completely natural for us to automatically deny ourselves the chance to partake in them.

For ourselves and our inner peace, we have to sometimes be strong and have these experiences.

We have to take part in them just to verify to ourselves that we like or dislike them.

By no means are we saying that you should partake in dangerous activities or things that are bad for your health and well-being.

We are simply stating that new things are not always bad.

These new things can range from spending time with new friends, trying new foods, listening to different music or even taking a class at school that you would not expect to like.

All of these things are chances for you to find out your style, your niche and what makes you who you are in life.

It may sound rather silly to say these things shape our lives, but we have to realize that at the end of the day, they really do affect who we become in life.

The next time that a friend suggests you go do something, and by something we mean something that is not dangerous, go out there and see what it is about.

At first you will find yourself feeling nervous and think that you are not a fan of what you are about to participate in.

But, how do you know if you do not simply try things out?

Get out there and see what kinds of things in life you may actually find yourself liking and enjoying.
