There are numerous moments, and people in my life that have influenced me and caused change and growth. But I think one moment in particular has had more so much influence on me, that if it hadn’t happened, I probably wouldn’t be who I am today. The day that my parents divorced had such a lasting impact on me that it has affected my decisions even as an adult. But if things had been different I probably wouldn’t be the same.
I can remember a time long ago when we were all together as a family. Those memories are so long ago though and are very faded, I can only remember bits and pieces now. My parents divorced in 1989 in Farmington N.M. and my life would never be the same. So many things changed the day my parents, my family, split up. My father moved away to Las Vegas, N.V. shortly after the divorce was finalized. We only occasionally saw him after that, usually when all the planets were in alignment. It wasn’t his fault nor was it my mother’s fault, it was just difficult for things to line up properly for a visit. But that’s just how things go sometimes. My mother moved us …show more content…
They knew that they could trust me and that I would be there for them when needed. At the same time, I was the authority in the house most of the time, so my sibling and I would clash at times because they didn’t feel they should have to listen to me. This isolated me from my siblings at times, due to the fact that my parents were so busy or gone, I learned to be alone and deal with things on my own, I rarely had the commodity of advisors to help me solve such situations. This also put my mother and I at odds, because I was responsible for things at the house, if they weren’t done I was accountable for it and would be punished. We always worked things out amongst ourselves and found a way to make things work in our home though. It was definitely a different dynamic from the days when our parents were
A person does not experience many events that shape their life in a large way, whether it be for better or worse. I have had just one major situation that has sculpted me into the person that I am today. In February of 2008, I was diagnosed with a life changing disease; it would relieve me of the agony I had been experiencing for as long as I could remember, but also restrict my diet for the rest of my life.
Since I was six years old, my parents decided to divorce. I was shocked because we were six siblings. After divorcing, I lived with my father and he could not bear responsibility for my siblings and I. I was the biggest concern for him because I have twins and he could not be able to take care about two children who have same age. My oldest sister decided to take care of me and she became my mother. She helped me a lot and she became everything for me. Some days, I got some annoyance from my relatives. They
had one daughter Gemma that was a year old. I stayed in hospital for a
There’s an event in everyone's life that changes you, whether it be a simple hello or a death in the family. Tragically, mine begins with my mother marrying her second husband. The lessons I learned from this man shaped me into the person I am today. I came from a bad situation and he took my family in and and showed me that not every man is the same. Perseverance, the ability to forgive, and willingness to change your life for the better are just some of the things he taught me. If it weren’t for the little talks we had I wouldn’t be hopeful that I am, that I will turn my life around.
Was there a moment in your life which changed who you are? Maybe a choice, situation or event caused you to do something you might not of otherwise? Events, choices, and situations can significantly influence the course of life. This is evident by considering the development of Macbeth throughout Macbeth by William Shakespeare.
Life is full of defining moments that can impact a life negatively or positively. The consequences to actions are never known in the beginning but always play out in the end. My life as well as everyone else’s can be summed up to a series of decisions, both good and bad, that effected our lives and the lives around us. My choices in particular have not had life changing or drastic results, however, there is one decision that has seemingly changed my view on the world for the better.
When I was in kindergarten, my sister was still a toddler, my mother was seemingly healthy, and we spent a lot of time together in shared activities. Now I am in college, and my mom and Hannah are living in an apartment in Tennessee. As I mentioned earlier, we communicate well, we are close, and we are not overly flexible. The summer after my freshman year my mother was going through a major depressive episode, and she attempted suicide. Our family was disconnected, angry confused, not communicating effectively, and excessively flexible. I had to put my life on hold to offer emotional support to my sister and my mom, whom I was angry with and hurt by. My grandparents had to take more of a leadership role in our lives. Mom became even less reliable in our eyes. Everything changed every day, and our closeness suffered. With therapy and faith, we were able to work through our issues. Now we are just as close as we were when I was in kindergarten, but we have grown and are closer in a different way
It was a Friday, December 22nd, 2017. Both my aunt and my mom were driving home, in separate cars. They worked at the same place, after work one of them would call each other everyday and they would talk while they drove home. My mother said “Me, my mom, and my sister used to have each other, there was no dad in the picture, and now it’s just me” I teared up when she said that, that is such a sad thing to hear your mother say.
Life Lesson As an underclassman you come into high school either thinking that the next four years of your schooling will be really easy or really stressful. To tell the truth, it can be both, whether you come into high school with a positive or negative attitude. High school is the last place you can get away with some mistakes and try again. The next four years will test your skills and responsibilities.
As a child raised by a single mother it was difficult for me to say that anyone else could have possibly made a greater impact on my life than she did. Regardless the guilt it may cause if I write the truth I have to say that it was not my mother who made the greatest impact on my life. It wasn’t my mother the woman who was there for me through everything, who made sure I had all the things I needed growing up, and gave me her unconditional love and support. The person who impacted my life greatest was not the person it should have been. Instead of it being someone who was there everyday in my life. It was someone who left my side at an early age. Since when I was around four years old I have thought my father passed from having a bad heart from what my mother
Although I am only sixteen years old and in the eleventh grade of high school, many things have influenced me and caused me to be the person that I am today. I hope that these things will continue to help me be a better person and influence me as my life continues. Some of the things that have influenced me have been church, my family, my friends, and school.
The most influential person in my life Sometimes in your life you meet people that could change your life. It could be one of your friends, family, or teachers. We know that our life is full of positive and negative things. And the best person in my life is my father.
There are numerous lessons that I have learned from life, they were lessons that I learned from good and bad experiences in life. Different experiences from school and out of school that has made me the way I am today. There is a long list of experiences that in reality did not teach me much.
I have a very fulfilling feeling about what I have been able to accomplish in my life so far. I want the absolute best for myself and those close to me. I often go above and beyond to help those around me succeed and be the best version of themselves that they can possibly be.
Hi, my name is Rob Geis and I am currently in grade 12. I have been at County High School for a year now; I joined at the start of 11th grade, and have thoroughly enjoyed myself here. The school is great, the people are fantastic and the atmosphere is one that makes you actually want to go to school. Before I joined ASB I was studying at the Singapore American School for two years and prior to that I was at the International School of Kuala Lumpur for two years. I was born and raised here in Bombay city and grew up here.
