I have learned and explored quite a lot about my worldview in the past couple weeks. I have been challenged to think about my worldview and try to understand it. I think my worldview is based on my past experiences in life and my faith. The Sire texted was useful to help understand how we get our own worldviews. I also have some strong opinions on the question “how do you know for sure?” All of these piece just combine with others to form my worldview.
Even though he had to fight to keep his leadership, Buck never lost the leadership. In the article Ben Carson Mother who is very poor and made little money did everything she had to do to make Ben the man he is today. Even if it meant feeding him food stamps, or being raised in a public housing. Buck, Ben Carson, and Ben Carson Mother all had many experiences in their lives, where they could have just given
I always believed that the people in my faith community were supposed to be my support system. As it turned out, they were not. Rather, coworkers and people from another faith community were there to stand by me as I navigated what would be the hardest choices I have made in my adult
You are no longer burdened with the negative situation, and in addition to that you are strengthened by a new positive force”. I began trying to always to see the good in every possible situation in an early age, growing up neither of my parents attended college, my father was not even fortunate enough to graduate high school.That being so money has always been tight around the house. Being the youngest as well, I watched my siblings struggle throughout high school and never enrolling in college because it's not something that was our main priority with bills due and food needing to be put on the table. Most of my life and till this day I watch my family struggle though this may sound like a broken record education
Taking the time to write out people, places, things, and memories I couldn’t live without along with goals I have for my life, showed me what is truly important. I think it is common for people to never take the time to write down what is actually driving them to accomplish things in life. By writing these things down I was shown what I really value and what is not as
My worldview and beliefs have been greatly shaped by my travels, family, friends, and most of all, my high school experience. I lived in Dar-es-Salaam and Hanoi, before moving to the US. My parents have also woven my Indian heritage and Hindu religion into my upbringing, and I have been lucky to attend St. Albans School, an Episcopal school in DC. As a result, my worldview has been under constant evolution. I think the beauty in this upbringing is that I have experienced a variety of new cultures and religions.
I have acknowledge that my family members and school played a major role in my childhood and one such interrelated relationship they had was the pressure from my parents to be normal. Don’t get me wrong but I loved learning so much, however school simply ruined it for me. The early hours of waking up to the horrible facilities that my school had were just some of the reasons that put me off from exploring my passion and love for learning new things. The fact that everything was just memory based and had no stable reason on why we were performing this constant repetition. It almost drove me crazy as a child.
So, I like to think that I kind of “invented” the person that I am today. I know that my development is far from over (as I still want to grow and one day, become an authoritative parent), but I love who I am today, and I will continue to strive to be that person I want to be for my father, my kids, and ultimately,
I can always find something else to do whenever I know I should exercise. I recognize exercise is very important and that emotional well being includes regular body movement but it is something I find very difficult to get myself to do. I cannot be true to myself without including this paragraph in my personal philosophy. Being more active is something I wish to work on. My dream is to take a gap year and discover the world and broaden my horizons, but at the same time remain true to my values and integrity.
On more than one occasion, I have had to stand up for my values – often alone, and yet have managed to remain committed and faithful to what I believe in. This quality is essential to me in living a life of integrity in my future. My core values are : courage, compassion, confidence , creativity , decisiveness, determination, discipline , efficiency , neatness, family, friendships, forgiveness, fun, generosity, happiness, kindness, love, optimism , religion and trust. Without these values, my life would not have the structure and meaning that I live by.
