You spend a great time of your life with family who then influences your identity from the beginning of your life. From the beginning, we are given a set of expectations and values, which are learned from our guardians. We learn not only through these guardians guiding us, but we also learn by life’s examples and observing. As we grow older and mature we more easily understand the importance of values and know what is expected from us. And because we spend a lot of our lives around our family they are the primary influences to social identity, religion, confidence and many more.

His flawless example and strong work ethic have influenced my life in so many areas. I have always admired him for putting his family first but am just beginning to realize how his attitudes toward work impacted my own life. His values and work ethic are now being passed on to my own children, and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
They shape the choices we make and reveal a big part of our identity to the world. Some values may be more important than others, but they still manage to influence our lives in one way or another, whether we know it or not. Values can range from a tangible item to an idea that has influenced us to stand by and remember those values. The values we hold with the highest importance act as a guide and help us prioritize our purpose and goals in our daily life. My family has taught me a list of values and traits that have helped me become a well-rounded individual.
Family has been a huge influence in why I’m in college today and has taught me right from wrong. Family is so important to me because they thought me how to build relationships with other people, how to love, how to get, always have my back no matter what, and know me the so well. Merriam-Webster defines the word health as, “the condition of being well or free from disease”. Health is very more important to me because I want to live a longer life and it helps me become more energetic when carrying out home/work tasks. Merriam-Webster defines the word knowledge as “information, understanding, or skill that you get from experience”.
I give the most credit to my family when it comes to who I am today. I am so privileged to have grown up with both a mother and a father. They each have been through so much in their lives, and luckily, they have passed much of their wisdom and life lessons onto me. They both have taught me right from wrong and how to be the best person I can be. However annoying they get, I can always be assured that they have my best interest at heart and only want what is best for me.
Our parents help shape us into the people we are today and, in most cases, we share the same values as them. In addition, our friends are also part of the reason we are who we are. They are the first group of people we interact with and whether we mean to or not, we try to imitate them as much as we can. As a result, the three values of my personal culture that make me into who I am are respect, work ethic, and joy.
It is by way of these agents of socialization that we, as human beings, learn and assimilate the principles and models of their culture. In my opinion family is the most important agent, simply because the most important years of our development (early childhood and teenage years) family has a major impact on our lives. Our relationship with our family is extremely imperative to our development. It is from them that we get our attributed status, language, fit into gender roles, pick up habits, and our initial values, beliefs and religion. Our interactions with our family from birth, through childhood and our teenage years have paramount influence on our personality, values, morals, etc.
I’m lucky to have a family that is on my side when I need them the most. In conclusion, my family is the best thing I will ever have and nothing can replace it . I am so grateful for them to be a part of my legacy, and I am not sure where I would end up without them. They help me become the man I am today, if not for them who knows who I would be. Family, stands for forever, affectionate, maintaining, intimate, loving, years and my family qualifies for all of the above.
