She is very creative so we would always end up cooking some weird foods, building forts, or making up dances. Maria always handles crazy situations very well with her relaxed personality. She is always most of the time stress free, when I 'm with her I also tend to ease up and enjoy myself more. Maria 's cheery attitude is never too much but always the right amount of happiness that always manipulates my mood into the same. Maria and I never really have deeply connected emotionally but we still have such a great friend ship.
I pushed virtually everyone out of my life and became self sufficient, or so I thought. I wanted to be alone and although I thought I was doing the right thing, I made many people worry and even caused some friendships to end. It eventually came to the point where I had mentally forgotten that I had ever had a sister, and that was a terrifying
I was devastated until I realized that this was a learning experience for the both of us. In reality, I never realized there was an issue with our friendship until it was too late. During her twelfth grade year, she began to change. She was dealing with some things such as depression, which I was blind to. I didn’t know how to help her through this difficult point in her life, which made me feel like a horrible best friend.
That was even nice. She looked him over and got little thrills from one of his good points. Those full, lazy eyes with the lashes curling sharply away like drawn scimitars,” (Hurston 95). Janie loves Tea Cake’s easygoing attitude and spontaneous lifestyle, but is still leery about him, and cannot decide if she wants to be with him due to an age gap between the two. Her relationship with Tea Cake was the most beneficial, because he saw her as his equal and never felt as if she was below him.
For years i tried to fit in with people whose opinions i thought would make me happy. i would dress, act, and conform my entire being in order to try and find acceptance. I somehow tricked myself into believing that the empty opinions of my peers would supply me with all the happiness and comfort i would ever want. This being my first mistake, it took me years to realize just how miserable i was making myself. I Spent so much time worried about the social standards my peers set i never had the time to even really find what i enjoy.
My grandmother, thankfully, told me that I would not get far in life if I continued to act the way I did. It was like a revelation to me and I am happy she opened my eyes because opportunities did start to open. People started to seem like they were happy to be around me rather than not wanting to be there. I believe that since all the positivity in my life left when he died, I didn 't need anyone but myself and I started to isolate everyone around me. If my grandmother hadn’t told that I had to change the way I acted and treated people, I would have continued not be happy with my
The feeling of being understood by another person at a time in life where everything seems to be falling apart or going wrong, can go a long way towards making sure they overcome it and can get back on their feet. Many people never create a connection with a teacher or someone who is much older than them, but I was lucky enough to do so with my study hall monitor Mr. Cyrprinski. Early on in high school, I had a ton of different worries about my future, and it constantly ate away at me. I was frustrated on a regular basis while trying to figure out how to create a career path, balance a social life, and still succeed in school. From the start of the school year, there never seemed to be a dull moment until that final bell rang in June.
I never understood the effect that this had on me until recently. My mom tended to get mad at life and take it out on my little sister and me by beating us. From third to ninth grade I lived an awkward life. I grew apart from my mother and sister; I hardly talked to anyone for that matter. One thing I was close with was my grades, I knew that education was the one thing no one would be able to take away from me.
Self-esteem is a confidence and satisfaction in oneself, which should be present in one’s daily life in order for him/her to believe that he/she have the ability do anything. I have to admit I have a very low self esteem and lack of self confidence due to the people around me and my family being a huge part of it. Last semester, I was told to drop out of school and stay home for next six months because they want me to pick a major that I’m not satisfied with. In those six months, I was mentally tortured by my own parents, told that I was good for nothing and that Im the worst daughter they could ever have. I used to wonder what is it that I’ve done so wrong that I’m a disgrace to the family.
Although I spent a lot of time without my mother I never let go of the love I had for her before the accident and that is why I was able to handle rough situations. I was aware that I was no longer the center of attention and I accepted it almost happily. Looking back though, if I had known what I know now I would have told my younger self that it was okay to demand a little more attention. What I never managed to realize was that a growing girl needs her mother more than she needs anything else in the world. I spent about two and a half years rejecting the idea that I needed anyone.
