When you are young you do things that you are not are not proud of. Growing up my parents always try to show me the right way to do things. While growing I have noticed that my parents made me who I am. My family shaped me into the young man I am today. The things I have learned to such as morals and values are from my family.
Although I pushed myself to do so, I did not want to go to school. I wanted to stay at home and be alone. Everyone else’s life looked bright and perfect. I blamed the environment for this situation. Living in a foreign country is what this is all about, I thought.
In my personal life experience, I had to leave everything and anything. However, I do not regret in any way because it has taught me to be a more persistent person and able to deal with more than I ever though could be able to do. Although, in this past months, I saw how many friends walkinge away, since then, I began to see my family as my more valuable treasure. Now more than ever, my world’s view changes all over. I can relate this experience with my father’s stroke to as a good way in changing my life’s view because if this has never happen to me, I have never realized how strong I
I know how it feels to be left out, and let me tell you, it’s not fun. This year, I have been working my hardest to be someone others can lean on. My main goal right now is to be a friend to everyone. Sometimes, it’s hard to go and talk to the new girl or sit by the boy on the end of the table, because we fear that others will judge us for it, but in reality, that is far from true. When people see that you are kind and caring, they will begin to look up to you.
Me living with my grandparents all my life changed me. My mom always bought things for me and came to visit. Her visiting was the worst tho because she never stayed for long. How I felt in school with everyone talking about how great they mom was, I had nothing to say because I didn't know her. My grandparents were my care takers, so when my mom came back home from the navy, it took me time to get to know her personally.
Yes, I did make friends or I did become a better player, but I also learned how to become more confident about myself. For example, when you are in an environment with no one that you know, what do you do? Well you’re first reaction is probably to confine yourself, but then you might think, “oh I really could try to make some friends.” This is an exact representation of how I felt the first day of softball practice, better known as torture. None of the girls knew me, therefore I did not know any of them. I was feeling my anxiety level rising, my whole body getting weak, and the thought of wanting to cry was to its max.
The most important lesson that I have attained is that home is where your family is. After worrying so much about all of our material goods, we finally realized that it's not about the beds or dressers that make a home, it's about the people that surround you that make it home. The people that make you comfortable or bring out the best in you is where you call home. Over the past year, I had to call many different places 'home', but I have realized that those places were not my home at all if my family wasn't by my side. I believe God is always trying to teach us new lessons.
In the long run my friends are my source of laughter and reliability . My family has allowed me to try new things , and go new places . To illustrate , my family and I have went to Disneyland , Erie , and Niagara falls . My family also got me into sports . In fact they got me into baseball !
