The last year of high school was the toughest time of my life, because I got married, had a son and got a divorce. In addition, of being a new mother; my husband moved me away from all help and support. During that year, he made sure that he knew where I was and what I was always doing, especially if I was to go to my mother’s house or shopping with her. After I graduated in 2007, he then allowed me to see my family more but only on his terms. It wasn’t till that July when he kicked me and our son out of our house.
I tend to over analyze situations which leads to overthinking. For example, if a peer gives me a compliment I over analyze and start to suspect that it might be sarcasm or I end up taking it the wrong way. To conquer this, I must not over think and take the compliments given to me. Talking about my insecurity to someone, such as a therapist, may also ease my tension. When my dad gained full custody, I discussed my confusion and self-doubt with a specialist.
As an only child, my cousins had filled the void of having siblings; they had essentially became my siblings, making the move very hard for me. I was able to get through this tough move with the help of God, my family, and jumping into new hobbies. Ever since the beginning of my childhood, I have been able to take a dark situation and find the light within it. Doing so during the move was very difficult. As hard as I tried to stay positive throughout the constant boxing up things, driving many miles, and meeting new people, I just couldn’t keep

I never thought my parents would get in a divorce. In fact, when I was younger I did not think parents ever got divorced. I was very upset and I felt like the whole thing was my fault. When I started fifth grade, I used to get dismal about the divorce and it started to affect my behavior at home and at times, it would even affect my attitude at school. My mom informed the school counselor and arranged for me to meet with the counselor weekly to express how I was feeling.
I learned so many things in the past year, how to take care of myself as well as someone else, how to smile when I’m weary, how to multitask and keep working towards my goals even when there are more pressing things in the immediate future. Most of all, it taught me to have compassion. Witnessing my grandmother’s struggle made me realize just how momentous other people’s troubles can be, even if I have never experienced them or anything like them myself. Though this experience has been the greatest fight I’ve fought in my young life, stretching my capabilities to their maximum, it has been the defining event of my life. For that, I am eternally grateful to the problems I’ve faced in this struggle as well as the supportive people who surround
Individuals with strong internal locus of control believe events in their life derive primarily from their own actions: for example when receiving test results, people with an internal locus of control tend to praise or blame their abilities. People with a strong external locus of control tend to praise or blame external factors such as the teachers.

Confidence is the ability to be proud and appreciative of oneself for who they are.
I was four years old and my memory of this day continues to reside vivid and clear. I recall detail by detail exactly as it occurred, treasuring the faces of the family members I left behind. A sense of uncertainty filled our home that day, although I was a young girl I quickly picked up on what was occurring. I knew that something drastic was going to happen, but my families' attempt to keep me marginalized in order to shield me from the vast change only installed a profound fear within me. This day marked the start of
We choose our own thoughts, reactions and emotions. We don’t always have to take everything negatively. Through the action I took of shoplifting, I realized how upset I always felt and therefore I wanted to change myself to make me happy and everyone else happy. Through this time in life I realized that our actions do speak for ourselves, and we need to learn that sometimes we do need to change ourselves so nobody gets hurt. When I felt lonely like the man in the glass booth, I then realized that I don’t want to be this lonely person anymore.
I believe I am more similar to the Extroverted, Sensing, Thinking, and intuition type than the Extroverted, Sensing, Feeling, and intuition type. This is mainly because I am a thinker, not feelers. I am a leader who can be pretty stubborn and bossy, and I like to choose the decision I know is right, even if it doesn 't benefit other people. I believe the reason I had an inaccurate first test, Is because I was sugar-coating some of my behaviors.

How will Asher’s employees, who are used to being able to manage themselves in their own way, respond to Dan’s task-oriented style? Asher’s employees would feel pressured and possibly inadequate. They wouldn’t receive the same positive feedback and could misconstrue how task oriented he is with them as condescending. Previously they knew what they had to be done and accomplished that task, but now as if they are inadequate at what they have to do, must fill out a checklist to ensure everything is completed properly. This could also cause them to feel overburdened due to having to fill out paperwork, and clean.
However, my mother got me through that dark time. 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.

When my parents split around fourth grade, I changed. I began to rapidly gain weight and could not lose it because of my family’s history. I also became very anti-social and stayed in my room with a vow of silence that I put on myself. One last thing that I believe shaped me not growing up understanding the going to Grandma’s for dinner stereotype. Two of my four grandparents, both of my grandpas, passed away before I was born.
I was able to increase the benefit of task management but still struggled to maintain the efficiency that comes along with that due to losing a case manager and taking on the entire case load myself. Understanding different perspectives has always come easy to me, however, learning to quite myself when my integrity is challenged because of someone else’s perspective was a definite challenge to me. I felt that the objective of learning what effective leadership can accomplish was the one that was successful. After shadowing Barb, I learned effective communication techniques, how to inspire the staff with vision and drive and how to have integrity in the midst of turmoil.
