Besides, school wasn't that easy for me because I didn't know English and I couldn't communicate with the people around me nor the teachers. I was the only kid who looks different in my class and has no ideas what the teacher is talking about. It was uncomfortable for me to be around my classmates, but everyone in the class seems to be nice to me because I was the new kid. They didn’t have problems with me and I didn’t have problems with them. As time goes on, I began to feel
Since I was expected by society to act a certain way in a professional setting, I changed my whole personality for the time that I was there. In order to get ahead in life you need to play different roles. Jung explains that “you should play your roll, knowing that it is not you” (Campbell 72). In contrast to my professional Persona, when I am with my friends and family I am usually humorous and outgoing because I have gotten to know those people and have been around them for so long. With strangers however I tend to keep to myself and do not usually approach anyone unless I need to.
Have you ever felt alone or isolated from the world? Well from being in middle school, I’ve learned that some people feel as if the world revolved around them. They do things they never would’ve done. Yet, they still do it just to try to fit in the crowd. From many experiences, I have learned that it’s ok to not be with the crowd since the crowd isn’t always the best option.
A few of us often disagree, mainly me and Laya, but that has made me realize how important it is to have friends that will be completely honest with you no matter what. They have taught me that I value honesty above many other things, and they help me better myself as we grow older
It took me quite a while to decide what defines me. What it means to be something. It comes easy to all my friends who describe me in all types of ways. From confidant and bold, to hyper and insecure. That I have this dedication, this need for things to be a certain way, as a perfectionist would, but my methods are far from “perfect”.
Now, being shy may have another source, but I always say it’s because I’m an only child. My social life growing up consisted of a few friends and my parents. There was only one problem: my parents were always busy. At some unidentifiable point this resulted in a division between me and other kids. I would try to fit into group, make new friends, or even just talk to new people but I never succeed.
My Educational Journey Today I would consider myself an average student. On occasion I tend to slack off but what student doesn’t. At the end of the day, I always try my hardest to be the best possible student I can be but, life isn’t perfect everyone has setbacks but we have to work through it. Don’t take obstacles as a negative switch them into a positive use them as motivation to keep going, Ralph Marston states “you turn a negative into a positive, you gain twice. You are no longer burdened with the negative situation, and in addition to that you are strengthened by a new positive force”.
At the time, I did not think anything about their disputes. I thought that most parents disagreed like that and I was oblivious to what was going on. My mom is a nurse and worked overnight shifts at the hospital. So from time to time, she was not in the greatest mood when she got home due to lack of sleep. My mom worked a lot of overtime hours to support our family as my dad’s business did not always provide for us.
He gets special attention inside of the group and unlike the outsider, people want to be around the insider. The insider is desirable to people because of his status and connections. Currently I am an insider in my group of friends. I could make some of the other kids involved, but sometimes the other kids want to be in our group. They do not show it sometimes though.
I don’t know but I am always really shy at first. I wish I was not but I can’t help it. I believe that everything happens for reason. Now looking back I’m that I was myself and everything because to this day I still am friends with my middle school friends. I most importantly learned that I need to relax and just do it because if I don’t I just giving myself stress for no reason.
