I have always hated writing about myself, and I always dreaded assignments in school where I had to describe myself. I always wanted to avoid doing these assignments because I did not want to sound narcissistic, or self-absorbed. I dislike people like that now, because I used to be one of those people.

Although I hate to write about myself, I have always liked to reflect on myself.

The experience in Syria was a great epiphany to judge myself before others. Ever since, I always kept in mind that the negative preconceived ideas I have of others, is a reflection of who I am on the inside.
I fell into depression when I was 13 years old. No one knew. I laughed at jokes and smiled at classmates, all the while feeling a hollow sadness that did not go away. I cried myself to sleep for apparently no reasons other than that sadness I felt. And I hated myself for crying for no reason.
I didn 't care about my early years of high school; My grades were poor and my mind was too focused on trying to forget the struggles of life. After sophomore year of high school, I began to think and acknowledge all of the issues I’ve experienced throughout my life.

Growing up I used to dread going to work out with my dad it was one of the worst things ever. He used to have me doing different drills. Running countless laps over and today.

On top of that I don 't get enough food to eat, I often sleep outdoors, and sometimes I 've even contemplate suicide. Yet the gang always stops me, If it wasnt for the gang, I would never have known what love and affection are. My parents never showed me what love or affection are.

He doesn 't have any convincing facts or details as to how social media and technology are truly ruining us. Also I think that when we are constantly on social media, we are truly more alone then ever. We often sit in front of a computer or phone and just wait for someone to reply or post or tweet. Sometimes we are simply reading the news, but most of the time we are by ourselves.
With all the six years I’ve been at GCU I never had a counselor who never told me they couldn’t help. On top of the lack of assistance from her she really didn’t give me good advice.
