I make every attempt I can to spend time with my cousins, even though we all have crazy schedules. I have weekly hang-out times with my friend of nearly 14 years.

All of these habits that I partake in are because I find comfort, and therefore happiness, in being around these people. These people know me in a way that others will never know me; they have watched me grow and struggle into the person I am today, and they will continue to watch me grow as a human.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council’s (NMC) (2008) Code corresponds with Price (2006) by mentioning that nurses must treat people as individuals and respond to their concerns and preferences, guaranteeing that

The goal of Orem’s Self-Care Deficit Theory is to decrease the self-care deficit. When patients are ill, they need assistance with care. As nurses we are there to provide the care needed while allowing the patient to perform as many tasks as they can for themselves. By allowing patients to provide care for themselves, they develop a sense of confidence and can assist them in overcoming obstacles in care.
