Like I said, the result of it almost came down to me getting sent away for doing what I was doing. A best friend will not only stick by you, but they will accept you no matter what you want in life. Never trust someone that tries to make you do harmful things. If a slight idea comes across that a best friend is being bogus, think it all through and find out before it goes way too far, and causes a negative impact on life.
I spent so much time complaining about high school, I never really had anytime left over to just enjoy myself. There are so many experiences from high school we will all carry with us through out our whole lives and will ultimately help determine what kind of person we are. By the time the end of my junior year rolled around I was ready to get away, so I enrolled in the Running Start program. I felt I had outgrown all that school activities had to offer and I wanted to just get on with my life. But as many teachers have clearly demonstrated over the last four years; you never get too old or too mature to have a little fun in high school.
I didn't deserve that kind of treatment and I was done with the whole situation. I need to break from that toxic friendship in order to become happy with who I am and my life choices. I needed to be my own person. Now that I have said my last goodbye to her, it felt like a weight was lifted my shoulders, which is the best feeling in your life. Now, I was getting into a better place.
Hatred does not solve any problems; it only causes pain and regret. I learned and used this life lesson when going through relationships that did not end well. Even though I have had relationships that ended roughly, I do not hate those people; I learned to forgive them. I did not forgive them because they deserved it, but to ease the pain and regret I was feeling. I realized that the other person probably did not realize, or care, that I disliked them.
The journal becomes an outlet for her true feelings that she believes would get her incarcerated if anyone else heard them. When she writes she states, “I think sometimes that if I were only well enough to write a little it would relieve the press of ideas and rest me. But I find I get pretty tired when I try.” Her husband who believes that her writing is contributing to her illness opposes this idea while not radical.
I have learned to not dwell on the past or mistakes because they will only bring you further down and we all make mistakes. I have learned to cherish the people that care about me. If this is just a one piece of knowledge I will learn in my lifetime I am actually kind of excited for the other ones even though they might not always be the way you want.
I took a long, hard look at the people around me and figured out what their good attributes were and why they were significant in my life. When I figured out who they were as people and what they could give as a friend, versus what I needed as a friend, I made my decision. It wasn’t a decision that was said out loud or one that was publicized. I just directed my energy towards the people who needed my friendship in return for the friendship they had shown me. When I realized who was a true friend and who was not, it hurt.
It will encourage me to be the best for my children, husband, and in my job. “Giving up because of obstacles is an act of cowardice, but giving up is not a cowarldy act when you give up the bad personality you have and look for a chance to be a better person.”
I used to wonder what is it that I’ve done so wrong that I’m a disgrace to the family. Just because I don’t want to be a doctor or a lawyer doesn’t mean Im not going to do anything in my life. So I decided not care what others think about me and do what I like. At this point in my life, I am trying to gain the esteem I need to truly be happy. The best way that I could come up with to gain self confidence and self esteem was to look deep inside of myself and believe that I have the ability to overcome all obstacles and challenges that I face, on a daily bases.
I knew that I was not being 100% true to who I was and who my parents showed me to be. I had the best examples as an adolescent when it came to people living with values and morals by faith. I became angry often with the people I cared about because I knew I let them down and disappointed them and I also let myself down. I am grateful today that my parents always challenged me and made me rethink my choices so that I could remember what was important to me and who I truly wanted to be. I feel strongly about the values my parents instilled in me and when counseling adolescents, it is critical that I make sure not to impose my values on
