When people see that you are kind and caring, they will begin to look up to you. It makes me so happy when my friends tell me how much I have influenced their lives. To them, I am someone who they can always talk to and rely on. I have raised their own confidence levels and showed them that they can do anything. I am so blessed to have the opportunity to change people’s lives without even knowing
Once in my life, I got to be an outsider. I wandered around for friends. I want to be happy with my friend, but no one wanted to play with me. I tried many ways to shows other that I can be a good friend, but no one knows it. My friend don't understand me, they don't understand why I act out like that, they don't even tried to understand it.
Like the ending of the book says, we place more attention on achievement and power in children today that it causes a hindrance on secure attachments and also has changed parenting styles. I do agree with Karen's call for more research on attachment. It would be interesting read more about attachments in today's society and how it has changed, although, it is apparent when you look into the lives of some families especially if you work in the education
When you have this conversation don’t have them just listen to what you want, listen to their side. Everyone is different, I am sure you would be okay walking, but driving on the bus is much safer. I also suggest talking to your pastor, close friend, or relative on their opinion. Good Luck, I hope you guys can come to an agreement on a good solution. Sincerely, Rosa
Society today has lead us to think about many things in different ways. Your parents have always told you how you should never talk to strangers or pay attention to them, but aren't we all strangers? Growing up, the adults in my eyes were all somewhat strangers excluding my parents. My parents were the ones I was supposed to trust and teach me the ways of being a good person. My mom still talks about how as long as I become a good person she’ll be happy, but what does becoming a good person mean?
I didn't know how to react and had a mixed feeling about this change. I was excited to see a new city and experience their culture but I also had an anxiety whether I would be able to fit in that new society where people may share a completely opposite view. To make the matters worse, I was an introvert, I can never approach a person without knowing them and start talking with them. I always tried to stay ignore any situation where I have to share my opinion about something because I always had an anxiety about people may negatively react to about my opinion. It was early in the morning; the sun was nice and high and winds were chilly.
Even though people may become my friends very quickly and easily, I would rather let them do the talking and let them tell me about them. I do not have a problem with letting people to get know about me but it is a bit dificult and hard to open up or say what i feel. I have always been shy, unless im comfortable with the people and the enviroment tht is arpound me, im also kind of awkward. One person who is my support system is my older sister, Doriana (Dori). She is the closest person on this planet to me.
“Maybe you wouldn’t feel all sad and alone if you tried to make new friends at school,” mumbled my Mom. “What do you think I’m constantly trying to do?” I said with a slight attitude in my voice. That’s all I ever heard from anybody. Through the years that statement slowly started to morph in my mind that my sadness was completely my
I remember those nights we used to stay up late and plan our futures of living in New York and working for a fashion magazine that only me and her knew. We also used to talk about plotting revenge on our other siblings. Looking back on these moments with my sister make me realise the true friendship we had. I have now realized that having a sister can be somewhat of an annoyance, for instance I can remember all the times my sister has made fun of me and manipulated me as we were growing up. But then again whose sister hasn’t done that to them?
