It is widely argued that nature affect one’s character more than nurture, and people have different views on what influences them the most; whether it’s their nature and background or the way they were raised. Firstly, many people believe that someone’s nature and disposition has a huge impact on his or her character as a whole. People with good backgrounds usually turn out to be the better out of everyone around them, their morals and ethics show what their personality is like and the only way that anything would change in their character is to relive those moments of maturing in a different environment than what they lived in before.

There are cases where our loved ones pass away or they are far away from us.
