It is not surprising to see that many people are unwilling to help others, whether they are strangers, close friends or family, when they are too occupied dealing with minor or major problems in their own life.

Their lives have not been easy, but they still try to give and assist, despite the circumstances they are in at that moment. This shows the readers that unlike the majority of the population, there are still some people who’d be happy to put others in front of themselves.

What college student does not like free stuff?

Media, family and friends tend to send an immoral message to individuals unknowingly. Family and friends can find themselves making a joke about someone’s body without the knowledge that it may cause the person to actually feel like something is really wrong with their body. Media is already putting darts into their self-esteems with flawless body images, having family and friends ridicule them as well is not going to help in any way.

So people get to be absent from work and school and enjoy time with one another, which would please most people, even if they don’t want to celebrate the holiday. Because if they were to take away the holiday, most of those same people would continue to argue that now they don’t have a free day off from work from Labor Day until Thanksgiving.
Despite my dad’s content for not needing to know, it leaves me wanting to pick up the puzzle pieces and put them together. A study showed that for individuals that have less knowledge of their identity are “salient predictors for depressive symptoms in adolescents” (Castle 307). Throughout high school I had no problem hanging out with people, I was very likeable and got along with most. The way I acted seemed to shift when I was hanging with each of the different groups I hung out with.
