At first I wrestled with where my identity lay. The strong values and traditions of the Indian culture sometimes made it difficult to fit in with the crowd. As I grew older, I began to understand that I was not part of an individual culture, but a fusion of two rich and colorful histories. I recognized that there is remarkably more to an individual than where she comes from, and more to her than where she currently lives. Importantly, being from two cultures allows me to incorporate the best qualities of both.
Personally, I show all of these qualities. Growing up, I was taught that if you are not honest with someone, the truth will come out. I stand by this motto everyday to not only benefit me, but to benefit others. I encourage others to live by this motto to help
I was born in a country six thousand miles from here, Mongolia. The better half of my childhood was spent playing soccer in the street with the neighborhood kids. I was content, surrounded by my loving family and amazing friends, until it all changed with an abrupt decision. I had reached the age where I had to think about my future beyond high school, whether I would go to a college, and where I want to be in life. Mongolia was not the most ideal country to achieve success, thus my parents decided to move me to the United States.
I felt short-changed being in such an amazing place for opportunity living in America, yet I felt as if I was ripped from the fabric of my Chinese birthplace. I felt that my adoption was an anchor of my life. While struggling with this connection, I came to appreciate all that America had to offer. I grew up like any other
Coming from a low income family, living in a small town in India, I learned early on about struggling and surviving those struggles. I watched my parents working day and night to provide for electricity, pay for our monthly school fees so my sister and I can have a better education, and for the future they wished upon for their children. To further enhance this vision, my father decided for the family and I to immigrate to the US. Everything was different in the sense that I changed schools, learned a new language, had to make new friends, and learned the different culture. I had to adapt to a whole new world, which was a little difficult at 6 years old
You wouldn´t want someone to get hurt if you are close friends with them. An example is when people lie to this one girl by telling her that she is pretty when she really is not. Therefore,you can understand that it is hard to get people to face the truth sometimes. Also,lying is also justified when you lie to keep a secret or to save a friendship with someone or if you owe someone a favor because they did one for you.
I started my career with the intent to be at the bedside caring for patients. In the past 4 years I have been learning but not a majority from books or in a laboratory but from human to human contact. I work for a safety net hospital; truly no one is turned away. I’ve helped collaborate care in a time of crisis for people that bring with them cultures, beliefs and values from half way around the world.
As Norodom Sihanouk once said, “Time will inevitably uncover dishonesty and lies; history has no place for them.” “It’s the Truth: Americans Conflicted About Lying” states that lying is mostly unjustified, especially regarding certain subjects. “Rejecting All Lies: Immanuel Kant” also mentions that lying at all is a sin, and that being truthful is not only a necessity, it is a moral duty. Furthermore, “Brad Blanton: Honestly, Tell the Truth” states that lying hurts, and even breaks, relationships and is very stressful and time-consuming. It is important to always tell the truth since lying can cause distrust in relationships and is wholly unjustified, a lie will always end up hurting someone or even the liar themself, and while many believe
At first, the social peculiarity given to me by my migration status and language limitations made me a victim of bullying, which made me want to go back to the safety and similarity of my home country. However, the persistent nature engraved in me by my parents did not allow me to give in to the constant discriminatory voices that kept telling me that I would never be "American" enough.
Honesty, Integrity, and Lies Synthesis Essay Though often times revealing the truth may cause more damage than good, it is only rarely true. Rather than achieving what is intended, all lies regardless of the size, create conflicts which in return result in irresolvable consequences like permanent distrust and an inability to sustain relationships. How would man live if he were only told lies and little truth?
My family came here for a better life like most immigrants. I didn’t know what culture was, even though my mother mentioned it sometimes. I didn’t know what race was, what America was, life and pretty much just how life works. I’ve been in America for almost fourteen years, switched schools eleven times and can’t count the amount of time I’ve moved apartment homes. I have even been religious, private, public, and charter schools.
Some lie so much that they even start to believe it. It is understandable that lying to someone can spare someone’s feelings but telling the truth does help as well. On the other hand, the truth can do more damage than a lie can. People pick and choose if they should bite the truth because it is all about causing as less pain as possible. Some things are just better left
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, honesty is the quality of being fair and trustful. I have always wondered why people succeed and are considered of great importance. Many tend to succeed through illegal paths, which will vanish faster than they think. Real businessmen build their heritage slowly, step by step through honest actions and decisions. A person who’s honest is not weak or fragile, instead, dares to practice honesty, to be considered trustworthy, and to be transparent in everything they do.
