Of Mice and Men “ The journey in between what you once were and who you are now becoming is where the dance of life really takes place”(unknown). Life is all about making choices. One is born, as his or her own person, and it is up to her to decide who she wants to be and become. In life, opportunities play their role. One can choose what she wants to do with her life and how big of an impact their decision can make. The choices and the paths one takes can change a person’s life now and forever. In Of Mice and Men characters can change their identity, but that does not mean they can change the basis of who they are. Decisions are a big part of life; they will take you where one needs to go to succeed (not succeed) in the real world. In John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, many important lessons are learned that can and will take us through life. For example, people cannot simply just run away from problems. Also, when people try’s to set unrealistic goals, they don’t experience success. Lennie can never change and he will always be the same guy who is unable to control his own strength. People who try to change their destiny often fail because they can’t change their identity. In general, people are born with certain personality traits, which stay with them for their entire lives. Changing one’s identity doesn’t change their personality. Moving away and starting a new life can be an attempt to change one’s identity. Starting over can be for the better, but people stay the same more often than not. In the very beginning of the novel, George and Lennie are in a bar. In the bar Lennie sees a little girl with a bright, red dress. Lennie’s attracted to the color, and he has a tendency to touch what he see’s. He therefore approached the girl and starting feeling her dress. She tried to leave but Lennie anxiously got a quick grabbing of the dress. This frightened the girl, which therefore lead to her screaming and yelling rape. While all of this was going on Lennie was so scared and confused
