Two Question Essay

821 words - 4 pages

“Two Questions,” by Lynda Barry, is a short story about believing in yourself and your work. Barry talks about something that everyone goes through sometimes in their lives. We all criticize ourselves trying to please others. Criticizing ourselves will only lower our self confidence. Lynda Barry teaches us not to care about others opinion and do what makes us happy. If we try to please others’ then we’ll never be happy.
While reading the story, I realized that I used to ask the same two questions as Lynda Barry when I finished my work. The two questions Barry asks are, “Is this good? Does this suck?" (168). Throughout middle school and some parts of high school, I used to ...view middle of the document...

It will only make you unhappy. You should have confidence in yourself and do what make you happy. During sophomore year, I stopped caring about other people’s opinion. After that everything was easier. I never doubted myself or second guessed myself. “While I drew, my main feelings were doubt and worry, and when I finished my only feelings were relief and regret” (Barry, 170). You are never going to be satisfied if you keep second guessing and doubting yourself. If you care about society’s opinion, it will only lead you to doubt and worry and you will never be happy with yourself. Why should you live in fear of other peoples’ opinions? Plus, if you aren’t happy with what you created, what’s the point? “The two questions held that part of me hostage” (Barry, 175). You will never be able to do anything freely. It will always hold you back. Why should you worry about other people’s opinion? They aren’t going to be with you in the long run.
Overall, this short story was good to read. The moral of the story is that you need self confidence in order for you to be happy. You can’t depend on others to keep you happy. You’re the only one that can make you happy; therefore others opinion about you shouldn’t...
