People are different and also their perceptions. Some people believe that group activities are more beneficial for personal development, but others oppose. I do believe that group activties are more important to develop life skills. In my essay I will discuss the reasons in detail.To begin with, people needs to choose activities done alone because it will help them to spend some time alone. After an whole day tedious work one need to rest his body and relax. The activities like listening music, and reading books helps them not only to rest but also to enrich their knowledge and mental strength. Furthermore, not all activities are done in group. For instance, if somebody interested in painting or stiching, it is only done by alone.On the other hand, inevitably people need to participate group activities. Human is a social being. So he must know how to behave in a society. Group activities gives them enough physical exercise and keep their body strong and healthy. By participating joint works, one can learn how to follow rules, and work as a team. Sports activites teach us co-operation, respect others rights, and so on, which is essential for the success of our life.Additionaly, life is with ups and downs, success and failures, which are two sides of the coin of our life. Group activities helps us to learn how to tackle a failure in a possitive way and indulge us with the increase vigour of practice to achieve success. Working as a part of a team helps to develop our comunication skills too. Moreover,we can develop and strengthen friendships. By participating as a member of different age groups, we can boost our knowledge of respceting and handling relationships with different age groups. Furthermore, it improves our self confidence and self respect. In some occations these activites teach us how to control our temper and manage ourself.To conclude, to succeed in our life we needs so many soft skills. In my opinion, through group activities, we can develop it and impove our personalities. The activities we are doing alone can boost our mental capacities and fulfill special interests. As no men can live as islands, I believe, group activities are more beneficial than individual activities in our social life.
Team participation is what gets us through life. Without actively working with others, we would never be able to get ahead. When you are actively participating in an activity with a team; you tend to make many friends. We all have needs as defined by Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs. One of these needs is self-esteem. Once you make friends, you will feel comfortable participating with them. This, in turn, builds up your self-esteem. Self-esteem is defined as regarding one-self with high value. When you are doing something with people you can trust, you will work harder to get better. “When you are satisfied with what you have achieved, you have reached a high level of self-esteem” says Nicole Moran of the American High School Swim Team. 
Anytime that you collaborate with others to achieve a common goal you have to interact with them. You are enabling social interaction when you do this by getting to know them on a more intimate level. To better work with your teammates, you should hang out with them outside of your activity so that you can understand them as a person, not just as one of your teammates. This social bond is what makes your team better and is what will allow you to excel in your choice of activity. 
“Participation in a team activity means that your teammates are going to be counting on you to fulfill your duties as a member of the team” says Mario Delgado, Captain of the American High School Swim Team and President of the Marching Band. This will enhance your level of responsibility greatly. If you decide to skip practice the day before a game or competition, you can cause your team a victory. You have to be responsible enough to manage your time wisely so that you can do everything that you’re supposed to do. This helps you become a successful person later in life. A key component in life is time-management. If you aren’t responsible enough to manage your time, then you will never succeed in life.
