I am confident that after my presentation was over everyone in the class would be able to make their own lava lamp. Firstly, my introduction went very well. I believe I was able to draw them in by relating to them while also gaining credibility. To start off, I tried to relate the project to them.
In Dave Pelzer’s autobiography, he endured all stages of rejection, which led him to become stronger than he ever anticipated. It is easy to forget the impact that excluding a person has on his or her mental health. Some people may feel the only importance they possess is when they have others with them. It is important to acknowledge those who stand in the shadows and are different. Things like offering a smile and making eye contact are simple gestures that can have a profound and positive impact that could change their whole day and possibly
Growing up with this disease has been the most challenging obstacle in my life. It has taught me to be proud of who I am and as ironic as this may sound, it has made me a stronger person. It has also taught me that being strong has so many variables. It doesn 't just mean getting through the rough times, it means accepting yourself and appreciating every great moment given to you. Going through this journey has also taught me that everyone has their own insecurities and that you never know what a person may be going through.
Life is a rollercoaster, a journey with many ups and downs. Sometimes if feels as if you are on top of the world, other times it feels as if you are the lowest you can possibly be. However, life is about getting through the rough times.
My life has changed, I won’t stop trying until i reach to my goals. I have been through the good and bad times, sometimes i get tired and wanted to give up but my coach’s words inspired me to do better. Without him, I would already gave up and never get to experienced this
High school was always a challenge for me, it was really tough to make it through. I made a lot of mistakes in highschool and learned from them. At the beginning of high school it started off great I was passing all of my classes, doing the best I could possibly be doing. I remember making great friends, having good peers, and having people to reach out to if I needed them.
Stress is another way of our bodies daily need for survival. We may not feel stressed right now, but there is always some stress on our bodies. Without stress, we would all die. There would be no fight so survival instinct. Stress comes from a hormone released into the body, and that same hormone is released when you hug
I would have the ultimate self-love... and an unlimited wealth of love to give. I need to treat myself better but its hard when you relive your trauma and losses every day, they never go away or heal. I will rise, I will find a way, and I will not let this be meaningless in my eyes when I see all of the pain and beauty for what it really is. People need to be more aware and care how they affect other people. Everyone goes around with their imagined self importance thinking they are the only person in the universe who matters, they care nothing for the pain of others...
It is indeed true that pain has stronger arms than anything else, at least in my personal experience. Perhaps this is why I have a tendency to remember more of the bad and overlook much of the good in my life. This is a great source of conflict that I have experienced, as it often interferes with my personal relationships. Similarly, on page 33, Hampl states “our capacity to move forward as a developing being rests on a healthy relation with the past.” During the last section of my writing, I struggle with developing a healthy relationship with my past.
Because Capote’s strength came from himself, he has a mindset that the benevolence of a family does not determine the life members of a family endure. While writing In Cold Blood, Truman shares this
There is always times in life when people face obstacles and while it may be easier to give up, giving up is not the answer. Awhile ago I faced a big obstacle in my life when I moved from California my home state and where I had lived my whole life to Texas, and while I wanted to give up and move back I had to overcome my own selfishness and see how good the move was for my family. This move affected me because I really did not want to move and I felt it was unfair for me to be moved away from all of my friends and everything that I had ever known. A year and a half ago, my life changed forever when my parents announced that my family would be moving from California and the house my family had lived in almost my whole life to
One challenge I have persisted through is my father's substance abuse and how it effected me. Growing up, I watched as my alcoholic father turned abusive. Eventually, after years of witnessing domestic violence and fearing for my life, my father was incarcerated. Although I thought he was gone for good, he returned from prison after a few years. However, I was convinced that he was changed.
