Life is too short too always rethink chances you may never get again.

As a result of attachment issues foster children tend to feel uneasy in the home they are placed in. According to Dashaun Jackson who was raised in a foster home, “I found that foster care did not build families. It didn’t give me the opportunity to be a child. It forced me to mature a lot faster than my peers.

After my day long orientation at Stony Brook, we ventured around the area I would call home in a few short months. Stony Brook, a hamlet in the town of Brookhaven, had a small town feel even though it was in Suburbia, USA and a little over an hour from the most populous city in America.

C.S. Lewis once said “Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it 's thinking of yourself less.” This to me means humility is not thinking of yourself as much rather than feeling worse than yourself. Sometimes when I feel humility because I’m unable to do what others do I can’t help but feel very bad about myself. Normally, my pride and ego are damaged for weeks on end. However, I’ve been trying very hard to understand my limits are not the same as other people 's while also understanding that with enough effort I’ll be able to better myself.

The integrity of a person is another major part of honesty, where I treat other people the way I want them to treat me. This is another reason why friendships and relationships can last a long time, and also why I am able to easily avoid escalating a situation.
