This value helps me a lot when I became an international student. Living alone without the family is one of the worst things in the world especially for the teenagers who cannot depend on themselves. For me, at least I can bear than anyone else because I can depend on myself for domestic works. I don’t need to own to anyone and also my parent don’t need to worry about me. They believe in me that I can live properly and depend on myself.
“I wish we lived on the other side of town.” (Canales, 2005, p.35) I also wanted the better life. However, I already had it. That is because of my family and even though we had our ups and downs, they were my warmth. “Papa’s words of many years before, that our side of town had its own wealth and warmth. I finally understood what he’d meant.” (Canales, 2005, p.
A lot of times we ask ourselves to imagine what our life would be like if we were unable to experience some of the fortunate things in life. We simply just scoff at it, as if it could never happen to us or someone close to us. I never really took a deeper look into how unfortunate experiences have shaped my life because I was fortunate enough to have parents who loved me unconditionally and taught me to be better. However, their pasts and the stories have pushed me to be someone’s advocate and support system because no one should have to feel insignificant. Growing up, I was an only child who lived with my mother, father, and maternal grandmother.
But creating family harmony is possible by treating in-laws as your own parents, never complaining to your husband about his mother and allowing your in-laws to take part in ubringing of their grandchildren. First, it is an open secret that having an independent life is very important for married couples but clever and farsighted young people understand that living with parents after marriage, having an extended family can be very beneficial for them because it strengthens bonds in a family. There are no parents and children who have not quarreled for at least once or twice throughout their lives and the main reason of their quarrels has been misunderstandings. So from this we can conclude that if mothers and daughters sometimes quarrel and there is nothing
It really is such a huge change but in a positive way. I tend to stay off my phone when I am there so I don’t get more stressed or upset. I detach myself from the world for about a few hours and it’s the best few hours ever because I really take everything in and can relax without drama. I really can find myself at New Hope and it is a relief to have found that place because it really does help me relax and figure things
My parents were fine with however I wanted to dress as long as I was happy. My household was super supportive, which somewhat blinded me to the outside world and what was going on. I feel my true experiences with the isms didn’t come until I moved out and went to college, which is when my eyes were opened to all of the inequality in the world when it came to the LBGTQIA+
At that age, I was not sure of why they did what they did. So one day, I decided to ask my mother why they worked and if it made them happy. She replied with the following cliché quote: “If you do what you love, you will never have to work a day in your life.” Even though I was very young, that quote stayed in my mind throughout the years. When I realized that my life purpose was to help other people to achieve their happiness, I was able to complete an assessment called “Holland’s Career Interest Inventory.” The assessment resulted on two words that related to my career interest: Social and Investigative. On this moment, I realized that my long-term career goal is to have a job in a psychology field.
My friends in North Syracuse were extremely supportive of me and I could not be more grateful for that. They taught me to be accepting of everyone, and they helped me become a less shy person. When I was younger I was not a fan of talking to and being around people I did not know. My friends in North Syracuse kind of led me out of my shell, which really helped when I moved to a completely new area. The friends I have now remind me of my friends I had in North Syracuse.
That goes for my mom as well she wasn't very happy on her own and my stepdad came into her life and he helped her out and I became happy for her because she was happy. As I said earlier in this memoir. My life and my mom's life had changed forever because of my dad and we had our life improved because my stepdad came into her life and I will never forget the day how my mom and I met my stepdad. The life lesson I learned from this memoir is that good people will change your life
Also, the low scores for receiving gifts and acts of service make sense because I was always taught to be very independent growing up; therefore, I am a very independent person. I struggle to let my significant other do things for me in our relationship. When he tries to do something, so I don't have to, I always end up stopping him and doing it myself. Moving on, I was not shocked to learn my strongest love language is quality time. I feel as if my quality time score was the highest because I do not like to be alone and I love to spend time with people that I love even if we are doing nothing but merely sitting together.
