I was a fool for thinking my swimming talent would be enough to swim for any college I wanted. My parents were disappointed to but not because I didn’t get offers from schools. They were upset because they knew that I knew how badly screwed up my chances. Debbie on the other hand was not as disappointed I though she would be. She looked at it as two more years to coach me.

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.
Constant harsh critiquing on anything is bad because people who do this don't see any other options. They don’t accept the opinions of others and they remain convinced in their own minds that only they are right. Eventually, these people dismiss others and hurt others, making those around them feel bad about themselves. Very often these people alienate those around them and they wind up alone and as miserable as they make others feel. The results of constant harsh criticism are serious and they affect people differently.
I was scared. I felt alone. I felt trapped…” (Bostick 2) When victims are humiliated, they often feel like they need to hide the evidence of the wrongdoings done to them. They are disgusted with what they let happen to them. In turn, their self-worth and esteem are diminished.
This made me feel very uncomfortable throughout the experience. I now feel angry as her bad leadership may have resulted in a bad grade due to her not allowing anyone else to contribute to the
But when I saw a rule or decision as unfair, conflict arose. My parents believed that being the guardian was all the justification they needed for anything. There weren't any problems with this when I was younger but as I aged, I questioned the reasons behind the rules and decisions I had to live by. In high school I wouldn't follow their instructions if I couldn't see them as being justified. If I questioned why I had to do something and it was met with an explanation, there were no problems.
The school year went on, and as others where preparing for the ACT and SAT, I was busy getting in trouble with the law and not going to class. No one cared about anything I was doing because I was a good football player and that was all they saw. They believed that any trouble I got in to, I could get out of, but that wasn’t true. I spent almost a month in the Wayne County Jail for armed robbery. It was there that I decided to turn my life around and do what was right.
I think its my childhood that brings out the little empathy i have for other people, i hadn't seen someone cry in almost 8 years its not something you do at my house. To see this girl cry made me want to be a stronger person then that emotionally. Even though my parents brought me up to be tough and to stand my ground i knew i would break at some point this semester, i think i hit that in one of my basketball practices. I kept being pointed out for doing something wrong, being the rookie sucks sometimes and it just hit me, i kept swallowing down the cry couldn't think of why i wanted to cry though. I stopped for a moment and tried to think, so i was messing up and being picked on for the same thing the same wrong thing over and o... ... middle of paper ... ...own to know when i am patient, my energy is available to make good thing happen.
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
