One of the things that happened was when my mom and dad got divorced. I remember most of the reason that my mom divorced my dad was because of his drinking. When I was little, my mom would work during the day and my dad would be home with me. Since I was so little, I was not able to do my medication by myself. Either my mom or my dad had to do my medication.
I think one of the main reasons why I suffered from depression is I always got in trouble with my mom. I use to disrespect my mom a lot by talking back to her, not listening to what she would tell me such as doing chores, and one time I actually hit her when she tried to beat me with a belt. That is not the actual reason why I was depressed but it was the result of all those things. The result of all those things was being sent to my dad’s house. Honestly even though my dad is not a member of my household when I was younger, that was the destination for if I got into any trouble.
My mother and father divorced when I was very young, but kept up a good enough relationship as my parents that it almost always felt like I had two married parents. I don’t quite know why, but mom had decided it was timely to get me somewhere safer than the streets of urban Los Angeles, without my father. Maybe it was my hatred of change which kept me bound to California. No matter what the reason, the idea of moving was an idea I was unable
There are many themes in works of literature. My 2 topics of comparison have some themes that pop out from the stories. For Runaway, my fiction topic, a significant theme is poverty. Makes sense, because Holly is an orphan, since her dad died from a tractor accident, and her mother died,due to being a heroin addict. Holly says ‘’It’s a cold, hard, cruel fact that my mother loved heroin more than she loved me.’’ She also has hardly any personal belongings and no riches left behind by her parents.
Twice in my life, I have been offered drugs by two of my relatives and more than twice in my life, I have said no to things that may seem alluring. See, my parents are of good morals and high standards which is one of the reasons why I am who I am today. They’ve always tried their best to give my siblings and I all we need. They don’t always understand my need for school and knowledge but they do understand that they don’t want me to fall into a world that only loses its
Most people love the “Homeless to Harvard” type of stories, but part of the reason they are so popular is because they are so rare. However, when I turned eighteen, I moved out as soon as possible because I recognized that living with my parents was only stifling me financially and emotionally, and I found a way to live on my own. I signed up for Shasta College, my local community college, and I began working on my goal again. I decided to make money through financial aid in addition to working as a tutor. I have always been dedicated to my education, but in college, earning high grades is more difficult than in high school.
Not doing all the fun activities I use to do with my family will be strict. My family might going limit things they used to do with me. The surgery will also have a financial impact on my family. Even though I do not have a job which supports my family directly, I do all the house works by myself, which usually help my family to save a huge amount of money. But, this surgery will cause me to hire a babysitter even a maid, which will cost more
Life is not life without obstacles standing in our way; obstacles are what make us a better or a worse person. In a college student’s life obstacles are an everyday thing because we do not only have to worry about school, but about our homes and jobs. Maybe our mother is sick and there is no one else to take care of her, so we have to stay and help her. My barriers are not something I can fix overnight, but I am trying. My father died when I was two years old, so my mom had to take care of my younger sister and me by herself.
This paper will compare and contrast the two to see the impact left behind by their lives. To begin, Milton Snavely Hershey was born into a poor family in Hockensville, Pennsylvania, on September 13, 1857 (Museum). He grew up among the Pennsylvania Dutch; his early life consisted of learning from these devout, thrifty, and hardworking people (Wooster). Henry Hershey, Milton’s father, never had a stable job, which accounted for why the family moved frequently. Milton’s mother, Fanny Hershey, was often disappointed in her husband’s failure; the two spent large periods of time away from each other much like Rip Van Winkle and his wife (Irving).
As their situation worsens, it seems like Julia’s father even ran off with Sylvia. Julia says “I think she knew that he was more than late. Something had changed, and she knew it” (246). Despite all of this, as the time passes they began to realize the importance of sticking together both as a family and a couple. Julia recognizes this when she states “I noticed my father began to care for her in a newly tender way.
“They are a highly dysfunctional and abusive family.” Growing up he had a rough relationship with his mother. They lived in poverty, food and money was scarce. Not only was his family struggling financially but also emotionally. His mom divorced his dad to go live with a man she had been
All the signs of an alcoholic is a cause by depending on alcohol. Health issues can present with a long term of alcohol abuse, liver disease, cardiovascular, pancreatitis, cancer, etc. Families and friends are affected as well, and advice is not considered or taken when in denial. Facing sobriety is not easy for most people to handle and I feel help is needed, and finding the proper treatment can be challenging for an alcoholic. Mrs. C. Torres lived a rough life and her addiction started at the age of 9 when her grandmother sends her to store to buy cigarettes and her daily drink, that was when she decided to have her first taste of alcohol.
My parents may seem overprotective, but after making small yet bad decisions, I realize that these rules are set for our own protection and wellbeing. Recently, my parents and I went through some problems with relatives. Although it started from unimportant arguments, it turned into a serious issue and made me face things I didn’t think I would’ve had to. Those relatives were my godparents and I felt betrayed because I had trusted them my whole life and suddenly I was unable to have a regular conversation with them. Luckily, we were able to move out of the problem and even though we are going through financial struggles at the moment, we have a roof over our heads and we’re happy
The biggest things I struggled with was the trash talking and having to deal with the new girlfriend or boyfriend. A lot of children may feel like they have a less stable family because of divorce. When my parents got divorced I was 5 years old and all I remember are the little things. I remember watching the fight that broke my parents up, but I don’t remember what was being said, I remember running to my sister crying saying that I’d miss her, I don’t remember my mom going to jail, but I do remember her calling me and telling me that she missed me.
