Ashley Burkes ENC 1101 M-W Christmas Dinner Isolation For nearly every individual family usually comes first. The love that one has for their parents, children, or siblings is usually unprecedented in comparison to the love an individual develops with strangers. However, I have always felt somewhat separated from my family. I have an undeniable love for them, but it would appear that everyone within my family is closer to each other than they are with me. I’m not quite sure how that developed, but it is noticeable.
The things you say and the way you say them can affect a person’s life tremendously. Everything you say, whether it’s really sweet or hurtful, it all has an effect on the person. It does not always have to be verbal it can also be through words on paper, in example writing and texting is the same thing just in a different form. In the moment of being mad you have a lot of different things running through your head, and most of the time we don’t think before we speak, we just say how we really feel. Later on down the road, you start thinking about what you said and how you said it, and realize that you made a mistake.
The term ‘culture shock’ has often being used nowadays. Most of us are already familiar with this term. When people have to live in a different and unknown environment or culture, they become anxious, surprises, disorientated, uncertain and even confused. This is what we defined as culture shock. People always tend to give negative opinion to this term.
I’m sure many of y’all that have kids find yourself at a point in time whereas you become impatient with your children for many different reasons. However instead of yelling or showing that you are aggravated with your kid or kids, there are other methods and ways of going about it. See the thing about parenthood is that, you were once a child yourself therefore you are already equipped with a method and that’s “beating them at their own games” or better yet knowing how to keep oneself calm although you may feel yourself getting aggravated or upset. A) That’s why, although my son every word is not clear. I take the time out to let him know or make it aware that I am trying to understand him, because Poor communication sabotages any relationship.
I recall calling her in tears, not knowing what to do, feeling as if I was failing as a Mother. But she would always soothe me by saying, “You are a wonderful mom. Your son is just like you; he wants to do everything at his own pace. Have patience my child.” Her faith is like a rock; it will not be broken. With her help and the Lord’s, I have been able to learn how to forgive and let go of pain that had tied my heart down for many years.
Many people may say insidious is such a strong word for two harmless words. But these words can be harmful to many people. I like to call them dangerous words because they put people in their own category. They show the separation between people even now in the days that we believe that we are all equal. “We and them” are words that people use in everyday life and they have no clue that they are so insidious.
That seems to common with all mothers and their young, but definitely growing up as an only child I experienced much more. To this day my mother still deems me to be “too young for that” or tells me to “be careful” when referring to going certain places and etc. All in all, I feel the trials and tribulations faced in The Odyssey are very similar to things I went through growing up. Lastly, the death of my cousin, who was a role model to me, had a major effect on my life. Death is a theme seen throughout The Odyssey and the emotion it brings is seen the entire time
Two children and one parent is not the best combination, especially when the children are girls who like to spend a lot. I did not mind bringing myself up because I had more control over things and I enjoyed helping bring my little sister up. There were times where I did wish I had more of a parental figure in my life, but I could not complain much. When I did ask for my dad’s help, he tried to be there for me, but sometimes he would not be. Whenever I needed to schedule a doctor’s appointment, my dad always made me do it for myself.
It has taken me a long time to figure out that you are the one who creates your own happiness and if you are always feeling sad and sorry for yourself of course it is not going to get better, you have to let yourself feel sad and sit in the sadness for a bit and then move on to greater, more important things. The things that i believe matter most are your health, (which people often take advantage of), family and doing things that make you happy and feel good about yourself. So many people in our society today are so materialistic that it’s almost laughable but really sad, i can’t say i am any better because i still love shopping and getting new things but people get so caught up in trying to get the newest, latest, greatest that they forget about the things that they really should be thankful for having like family. The only thing that has got me through all the awful days has been my family. No matter how awful i felt or how mad i was about my situation, my family went through it all with me.
