It is amazing how one little thing can affect your whole life. Payton completely changed my life and my outlook in life. I don't get mad or upset with people as easy as before it isn't worth if they really are a good friend. I have never been more motivated to do the things I want and need to do now. I have learned to not dwell on the past or mistakes because they will only bring you further down and we all make mistakes.
We don’t often reflect back on our life, the person we have become and what the future holds for us. It is only then we become aware of our flaws, and are given a choice to fix or ignore them. Change is an extremely important part of life; in fact, most people would argue that it is the definition of life. People become stagnant and do not grow into their lives if they do not embrace change. Recognizing what needs to be done, reflecting back on our lives and accepting the faults that welcome change, is probably the hardest part, but certainly not without its virtues.

I have noticed for a while now that I control my emotions. I realize how easy it is to snap out of negativity, even though it may seem hard. In addition, one thing in life that I always strive to remember is that I cannot control everything and that stressing over things that I cannot control is a waste of energy. I went through a small rough patch in my life a couple years ago and finally had to tell myself to either let it go and move forward, or to remove myself from the situation, because continuing to feel the way I was feeling everyday was only going to make matters worse and ruin the best parts of me. When I finally did that, I felt so much better because I made a decision and stuck to it.
The first strategy is to learn that I cannot do everything by myself. Typically, I never ask for assistance in my personal or professional life, and that gives me cause for alarm now that I have enrolled in college full-time. By continuing this behavior, I sometimes resent those that I love because they appear to be getting by with doing hardly anything, when in all fairness, I am the only one to blame. In addition, when I am unsure of how to do something, I am hesitant to ask for help because I feel that makes me seem ignorant or weak. By utilizing the first strategy I have to learn to delegate some responsibilities so that I may concentrate on doing well in all my classes.
I contemplated about how much I was willing to disclose in this first writing assessment about myself. A life lesson I learned the hard way was, the more people know about you the more they can harm you. Not to say that anything I share in this paper will be used against me but I have become very sceptical about sharing personal information. For as long as I can remember I have always been a social butterfly never having trouble making friends in any environment. What I did not realize that instead of being myself which was what ultimately drew people to my personality, I became a people pleaser.
In the summer of 2006 I was inspired to do something that inherently would never have even crossed my mind. I was born and bred to be risk averse. My parents, the resolute material providers that they are, taught me not to fend for myself, but rather to avoid confrontation altogether. Their eastern culture centric and old-fashioned way of child rearing has had a profound effect on the way I lived my life. However, their penchant for negative reinforcement and their inability to show physical affection never impeded me on having a fulfilling and moderately successful life.
