It will feel horrible at first then you’ll slowly get better. I saw that I was wrong really quickly. I ,instead of helping myself, I helped my friends Nataleigh and Arianna. They, at the time, were my best friends. I couldn’t live without them, but both also had problems of their own; And being the person I am, instead of helping myself out first, I let my depression get worse and worse in exchange of helping them.
Hi Jacquey Kessler, I too had some of the same struggles. I also work full time as a manager and found it very difficult taking two classes. I eventually had to switch to part time because I wasn’t satisfied with my learning experience. Since going part time it has been a real stress reliever. I have a little bit more time to enjoy other things in life.
I think about things I said or did years ago, about how ‘stupid’ I was,/ Anxiety makes me a difficult person to be friends with” (Ann). Grendel needed a friend to keep him alive, he was always thinking about what his people did years ago when that’s irrelevant to him now. To overcome anxiety, you need companionship, but you also need to learn to love yourself so you can create a more confident, happy, and healthy lifestyle for
Death is a part of life and while my patients are alive I would like to be a friend to them that way while they are alive they are as happy as they can be and I will know that I did everything I can to help them while they were alive. I think that not becoming attached to patients is a cowardly thing to do and selfish because they may need someone to talk to or ask questions to and if you are not there for them then you are not doing your job to the best of your abilities. While it would be sad being around a dying person it would not be uncomfortable. At that point I do not think my comfort matters. All my efforts should be turned towards that individual.
This class revolved around understanding addiction by giving ups something I enjoyed while gaining insight through group therapy. At the beginning of this class, I became very resentful and frustrated when I learned that I must give-up something that I enjoyed. You see, I am in recovery and I work with my personal addiction issues on a daily basis and did not think this class was teaching me anything new. But, once I wrapped my mind around how I would accept this new challenge, my life became more interesting and I started to look at things a little differently. Because I suffered from addiction in the past, I was taught through twelve step programs that my addictive mind would substitute one addiction for another, but I did not realize how detrimental giving up even one of my “simple” decadences could be.
Interscholastic athletic participation has influenced my character in ways I never fathomed. As an athlete, failure is inevitable. Even the greatest athletes have failed at some point. As a hurdler, I have countless scars from stumbling over hurdles. Through this failure, however, athletics has taught me how to get up, move on, and learn from my mistakes.
Along with many friends that helped me get through rough times to make me the person I am today. My family for sure, plays the biggest part in shaping of who I am today. Growing up wasn’t always smooth sailing, I often was influenced by many negative people that tried and guide me in the wrong direction;however, my family members were the ones that never seized to stop improving me. During the peak of my junior year when all the algebra, physics, history, and english classes were piling up in enormous numbers and were causing me to stress and
America is a blessing. Although I knew very little English and I had a difficult time fitting in, I experience many struggles because I knew that Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet. I was not someone who could learn something easily but my determination and hard work to make a better future for myself kept me going. My father was really sick, for his better health, we first moved here and the time I spent taking caring of him. Ever since I realized that I could help people and enjoy it immensely.
My reason for perusing graduate studies in this field is the growing passion I have for counseling. Growing up with a mentally ill mother wasn’t easy and caused me to harbor a lot of emotions, which I carried with me throughout my adult life. It was through counseling that I learned how to express with my feelings instead of suppressing them. Counseling has helped me become emotionally healthy. Majority of people I encounter are ignorant to the importance
After a few weeks in, I realized that this lifestyle is not healthy, for my physical and mental wellbeing. And luckily, I had Rose Scholars. Initially, I had applied to the program to get guaranteed housing. However, I found myself enjoying the events. Often times, I would attend more than one event.
