Equality was once indifferent compared to others and would suppress his hopes and desires to fit in. A pivotal change occurred in him when he accepted who he is and embraced it blocking out dismissive opinions.

My personal belief is that our differences are the things that bring us closer together, having a contrasting character makes you stand out. We each shape our own destiny and to take advantage of any situation in our lives, we have to view the different perspectives life gives us. Each person has a part in the shaping of others destiny’s. I always try to stay positive and encourage people to do the same, this way we encourage happiness. To serve others you need a favorable character, which I believe I posses.
Through my lens I look at an individual as a person. Guided by my instincts and my desire to seek knowledge I walk a path of a hero. I will continue to put all my energy into breaking down barriers, uniting people together and hoping to find the good life. I was taught that your situations would never define you, but your decision will. My preferred lens describes me completely; I use my experience in life to make decision even those things that I know are unethical.
However,after reading, I come to realize that sense of community and unification I have been feeling within the program is often at the expense of individuality and freedom of expression. I realize that no one should have been afraid to voice my discomfort and concerns. This book taught me that discipline and a uniformity do indeed motivates and inspires people, but empathy and awareness are also equally important vital skills.

When a third person is added, this companionship becomes a friendship. Nevertheless, the members of this companionship or friendship have similar goals, interests, beliefs, etc. Lewis suggests that Friendship love is the least jealous of all of the loves because when we are building friendships, we are asking for more people to join our group. The more people we share commonalities with, the more our group of friends begins to feel like a family. We need to be careful, however, because we can quickly lose sight of the purposes of friendship and begin developing a closed-minded
Joyner personally makes me think twice about how I should treat others. People should not do things with the preconceived notion that they will receive something in return. I am glad to have someone like him in my life because he teaches me how to care for others and I’ve grown as a person. Kenneth Russell Joyner III is a true definition of a real life
Do I choose what will make me happy or do I choose what is practical? In Ralph Waldo Emerson’s essay “Self- Reliance,” he writes “Trust thyself: every heart vibrates to that iron string. Accept the place the Divine Providence has found for you.” This quote is significant because I frequently doubt myself in my life. This quote not only inspired me but also Usain Bolt to trust in oneself and believe that the events happening will serve a greater purpose down the road. Emerson was right when he said to trust thyself.
Ethics is the most vital tenant in the human services. On the contrary, I must remain balanced and focus when my future client’s values do not align with my own. For example: someone who mistreats or abuses children. As discussed in my autobiography I value family the most. My life experiences will also add value to the counseling field.
Giving it some serious thought I came to conclusion that being attracted to the human service field is a gift. I have always received great satisfaction from helping others. In reflecting how I have learned my values, morals and perceptions that I believe, have help in showing me the insight in who I am and why I have chosen to be in the human service field. When I take inventory of myself I feel that I am a very confidant, opinionated, sociable person. I also see myself soaring like an eagle reaching the prize because much have been imparted in me so failure is not an option.
Emerson is convincing that nonconformity is genius. His essay self-reliance demonstrates his reasoning on the subject. He aspires for everyone to accept themselves for who they, how they and how they think; without giving in to the conformist of their society. Being a nonconformist may be seen as a treat to others and the social order in every society. Yet, knowing ones true self and acting upon the divine good in one’s self is rather a blessing to
I have a better insight of what careers I am best suited for. Some of the careers identified were, detective, managers, judge, and teachers. My role also taught me about my relationship with my family putting God first, family second, and friends third. It showed I 'm dedicated to building lifelong relationships, I like to be in charge and have a tendency of being controlling and have very little patience, and having a high regard to traditions. I like stability being secured and, protective of my family.
Being an Extroverted, Sensing, Feeling, and intuition means many things, most of which describe me well. Since I am an Extroverted, Sensing, Feeling, and intuition, I am a conscientious helper, and sensitive to other people 's needs. I also value loyalty and tradition and make my family and friends a top priority. I should value others feeling and always think about others first.

Now, I hesitate to use the word. Being an ally is not an identity. Rather, I define it more through the habits that make me an ally. My lifelong process of building relationships based on trust, consistently advocating for a cause and holding myself and others accountable is what defines an ally for me. I have learned that in social justice work where I have privilege and I am helping a marginalized group, I often approached the situation with an underlying savior complex.
From the time we began talking in class about attachment styles and what they look like, I have been fairly certain about what my attachment style is. I believe I have a secure attachment style, but with ambivalent tendencies. This attachment style impacts every part of my life, especially my relationships with God and others. I consider myself a securely attached person, but my life has also produced some insecure attachment issues that I am still working through. Relational beliefs that come from my secure attachment style include the beliefs that I am worthy of love and capable of receiving love, that others are trustworthy and available to be there for me and display love.
