Although shy, I loved my friends and siblings and thought the best in every situation. It wasn’t until I grew older and received the guidance and outside perspective of my adopted mom that I realized how awful my home life was. I’ve since begun analyzing my behaviors and emotions that ran through my mind as a child to realize how to overcome the abuse I’d endured. The six books I’ve chosen as mirrors identify the emotions and behaviors I see myself having at a young age of nine or ten years old. Though I might not have realized why I was the way I was back then, I know now that I have developed into the woman I am today because of my home life and experiences as a child.
The 5th graders were the coolest kids ever and the more friends you had, the more likely it was for you to become friends with the 5th graders. Everyone had a friend except me, Lirie, and Grace. We were those 3 people who didn’t have friends so just got lumped together so we had to become friends. It worked out perfectly and we became best friends very quickly. We stayed friends until the end of the year in 5th grade when I had to move.
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. The only people they seemed to like were her friends who’ve been with her for years, like siblings. I might have not realized this right away but when I did, it was a little too late for me, after what I had
I was so confused until one of my friends told me that my best friend told everyone my secrets. Meanwhile, I was very confused and angry, so I confronted her. In the end, we stopped being friends and after that one moment, that one moment that changed our whole friendship, I haven’t trusted or let loyalty seep into my life. From these life experiences, I can conclude that even though you may show loyalty to someone they may not show it back to

They are the same in almost every aspect of life. Hanna has what the narrator describes as the perfect life. Her parents are together, her house is friendly and her dad even visits their fifth-grade class. The two best friends were perfectly content with their life and no matter what they would not be separated nor turn against each other. “We were the girls with the wrong school supplies, and everything we did after that, even the things done just like everyone else, were the wrong things to do” (Horrock 473).
Finally, we figured out who it was, I could not believe what I had discovered. It was one of the girls I thought I could trust, turns out she was using me. After this incident I found her talking about me behind my back and telling another girl she was using me to become more popular in our class. Having finally lost one of my best friends I was clearly devastated and just tried to end my experience at Schechter in peace. Speaking only when necessary, staying out of the drama, being true to myself, the key to
It all comes back to me as I have failed to protect my family and it is I who is responsible for my family's ruin. If word got out before I can solve this my daughters will never be able to marry. My family's social standing was never high and as Mr Collins said in his commiseration that a women's reputation is indeed easily lost. Even with Jane's amiable character and beauty or Lizzy's wits and knowledge they will not suffice the judgement and ridicule from people all over. My family will be affronted by the public and end up in despair after my life as they will forever be widowed and they will perish alone.
It soon became evident that I was my father 's favorite. My brothers, like most people would, became jealous and would play horrible pranks on me. Father would just tell me "They 're just trying to toughen you up." And shrug me off. (I Imagine he did that to any problems my brothers had as well) But, while my father could be cold, I could always find solace in my mother.

The memoir has a linear structure, going chronologically through her life. I felt like I was definitely more interested in her story as it went farther along, however there was never a spot where I wanted to stop reading. Her teenage years and on were quite gripping, seeing her coming into her own as a young woman while trying to keep the family together emotionally and economically. I cringed at times, and at others I was truly inspired by her unconditional love for her family even when they treated her so poorly. As the reader you can really see the strength she gained as a child and it inspires.
Those actions reflected on his kids, and even his wife. The woman that did basically the same thing her husband does. Seeing the bad in every situation. These parents tried to see the good, but it never turned out that way. They didn’t like anything that was related to the government.
He just adored all the attention he got from every girl. Catherine’s best friend was Liam; she went to Liam for everything like advice, attention, and comfort. Although, they both loved each other, neither of them were ever brave enough to say it; until now. “There they go again,” rambled Michael. “You would think, they would
If she could change on part of her life it would be high school. She would relive high school because she would want to try harder and care more about her grades. Her greatest success in life was graduating college and becoming a teacher. That was her greatest success because it was her dream to be a teacher. My favorite memory with my mom is when we took a cruise the day after christmas.
