The biggest mistake I've made was forgetting about my happiness and putting someone else's happiness before mine. In your life when a mistake is made you might not realize it till long after the fact, I didn't realize till months after when someone came into my life that to this day makes me happy. I realized my mistake and saw how it affected my family life and my friendships in a bad state. It took time from my family that I will never get back and friends from me I needed at the time. Now that it's over I see my mistake now and realize that you can't make someone happy without you being

Helen had worked very hard at some sport or creative medium in order to excel, for she wanted very, very much to be noticed, acknowledged, and recognized as special in some way. Though she was outstanding, Helen Keller also needed to learn to relax and enjoy herself more. Quite reserved and somewhat inhibited in her relationships with others, Helen Keller felt that she is better off by herself. Helen felt that she did not fit in very well with people and she finds team-work in groups or associations difficult to achieve.
I began to love how nice she was, and how much laughter she could give her friends, and looking back at it, I wouldn’t have known that a random new girl would soon be my best friend. I completely changed after that. A hand needs another to be whole and her hands seemed to have perfectly fit in mine. Unfortunately, things went downhill from there without me even realizing it. Her parents looked me in my eyes like I was a parasite who might try to steal their daughter.
She thought she needed a man to be herself when she really did not and she figured that out. She found her confidence on her own because of who she is just like the woman in “Phenomenal
The “love” change once they meet the other side, the flawed side, at that point the live turns to hate almost instantly. Maybe not even hate, you can simply just become unattracted to that type of person after a while. You no longer are blinded by the good things you loved about them. The love one receive when meeting “the one” is breathtaking and instantly changes everything.
My young, naive mind thought people don’t do that anymore, that was only when black people were slaves. Being so oblivious and not trusting my parents word, I acted up in class and was disrespectful to my teachers. My first suspension in school was in kindergarten for flipping off another student. I was unaware, the meaning of this gesture. A kindergartener put into In School Suspension for holding up their middle finger.
Looking at the book Romeo and Juliet, you see love as a good impact as it brings people together. In this book, there are two teenagers, valiant Romeo, from the Montague family, and beautiful Juliet, from the Capulet family who fall in love and marry each other secretly.

It came to a point where it did not matter whether I was in school or not, because at the end everything was about basic stereotype and discrimination of my race. I even experienced discrimination by my teacher, which is not something a role model of students should be like. Looking back on it now I distinctly remember a few moments when I felt my teacher treated me with a discriminatory manner. Having only been in a Spanish school for two years, the language barrier was still a challenging obstacle for me up to that moment. Not knowing the language thoroughly became an impediment to learning and strained my relationship with my teacher.
I had always wondered how it must feel to have friends that care so much, they would drop everything just to come and help you. However, after months of searching my three best friends showed me what true friendship was. One of the most important male figures in my life taught me that what is yours will find you and that life gets a lot more beautiful when you start living for yourself. This really helped to shape me into the person that I am today because I no longer seek approval from anyone but myself. That piece of advice is what made the last two years of my high school career nothing short of
She was threatened on multiple occasions by Ashlynn, varying from sabotaging her friendships to physically fighting her, and had to deal with fellow students harassing her and speaking down to her due to this. She missed a lot of days due to emotional duress for these two years, and this ultimately ended in her falling severely behind in her school work, only adding to her stress. She tried to deal with the emotional abuse without adult assistance throughout 7th grade, believing it would subside over the summer, but after seeing the toll it had begun taking on her grades and mental health and speaking to Christy Cochran, librarian and confidant, she finally reached out to administration and received a school-based Stay Away agreement at the beginning of her 8th grade year for Ashlynn Morgan; the purpose of which is to increase safety for students who have been the target of severe or repeated bullying,
She got me the help I needed and gave me the strength to pick up the broken pieces in order to put it back together. I’ve learned that “it takes getting everything you ever wanted, and then losing it to know what true freedom is.” Said by the wise artist, Lana Del Rey. I loss the one thing I ever wanted, success but soon came to realize that God has bigger plans. Entering my senior year of high school.
Attending a small school for now 5 years, I understand that most kids at my age go to a larger middle school with a graduating class of approximately 200-300 kids in their class, but going to a large school, teachers don 't have time to spend on a specific individual for many things, and I find myself lucky to get that at North Cape. Going through many situations and conflicts at North Cape led me in temporary unfortunate paths, but greatly impacted my reason to try and change to become a more successful individual in my education and life that made a permanent change. It all started 7th grade year, I wasn 't trying, it was as simple as that, until I received a suspension that was for an unnecessary conflict. I then had decided to try and get good grades and do something worth my time and put a smile on my family’s face. Because of the decision I made, things got better and made me feel better as a person, and made me realize I’m not only doing this for my family; I 'm doing it for myself.
Growing up my parents instilled in me that I was beautiful and my skin was beautiful. It was clear to me that everyone else didn’t feel the same way. I went to a couple different schools throughout my life starting with a predominantly black school then a predominantly white school then a very diverse school and at each one I still experienced colorism. At the black school I was not liked because I was darkskin and my hair was kinky and I was just not as pretty as the light skinned girls.
I had no idea what to do. I thought they would never be friends again and my life would be a lot harder. But as I got older and years went by my parents became best friends again. That’s really taught me that sometimes bad things happen, but better things can result.
