A lot of people in the world don’t like who they are or what they’ve become for many reasons such as: looks, weight, personality, family, job, etc. Whatever the reason may be few people in this world wouldn’t change a thing about themselves, I’m one of those people. I’ve learned to accept all my flaws and realize god made me his way for a reason. If I were to change anything about myself, even the
Many people would never open up and reveal the inner most parts of them by in which them being afraid by what may be uncovered. I am willing to share the stories of my family, the likes, the dislikes, the confusions, the toils and our commitment to each other. You will discover that through my childhood I’ve experienced many joys as well as abuse; mentally, physically, and emotionally. But through perseverance, I’ve learned that I can reach beyond the clouds to become more than what I’ve even expected of myself or what was portrayed of others. I’ve learned to depend on God who is the most important person in my life.
Each event and decision that these five wonderful gifts have brought me, have created me. I have learned to strive under pressure and am able to tackle any challenge or obstacle with a proactive attitude. In doing so I am able to be the best version of myself, the person who accomplishes greatness in every single endeavor. Having the privilege of being born the oldest has its advantages, yet it also comes with its many disadvantages. Throughout my entire life my parents have pushed me to my extreme in every task that I embark on.
Personal Pilgrimage By: Morgan Porth Throughout my life I have been on a journey, the journey of life. On this journey I have had many experiences that have helped me become who I am today. Looking back on certain memories, I remember how big and important they seemed to my journey but now I see that most were minor speed bumps that only slowed me down a little from where I am headed. I look forward to the halfway point when I’m a successful Orthopedic Surgeon with a beautiful family and living a happy life filled with the best people. For now I flashback on the things that have brought me this far in my endless journey.
My father in particular was the most positive influence on my life, showing his undying affection for my family through his stern demeanor. It’s my father’s hard nosed yet loving approach and ability to risk anything for his family, that makes him my hero to this day. I think most people can remember the first time one of their parents sat them down on their
I am deeply honored to be among the exemplary students who were chosen to become a part of the pioneer batch of the Honors Program of Enderun. I must admit that this is something that I have been looking forward to since the beginning of my college career. The Honors Program aims to recognize students with outstanding grades and commendable characters which I strongly believe that I both acquire. I believe that I deserve to retain my part on the Program because I have worked very hard and gave my very best to attain such standing. Looking back, there were several poignant moments when I was struggling with my classes and would have given up trying to achieve my goals.
My children constantly remind me that even with my flaws and short comings. They feel for me and with me as I do with them. It is not so much what they say that keeps me going but the support that they give no matter what decision I make. As far as having an ego buster, many people have come into my life and made me feel inadequate in some form or another but for years I have had two relatives both aunts that have been quite capable of making me feel as though I have not been able to progress even when I have. They are both every verbal people and their ability to verbally point out the inferiority in people and myself being their focus much of the time assures me that in most times I am on a path they are not happy with because the path that I am on is a path that they them selves have not been able to travel and complete.
That was a big step being independent on my own not being with my parents all the time. I had to things for myself, but if had question about anything to just ask them. My parent’s life experiences helped and accumulated wisdom preparing me to meet the requirements of life in society. Peer groups in society today have a lot of violence, drugs, and other bad things. My high school I graduated from Washington Marion High School has changed in many
I did not grow up in the best environment and my caseworker has helped me cope with the fact that, sometimes, my family is not a positive role model for me. I learned that, even through hard times, not everybody is going to do what they say they are going to do. Having a relationship with my family has been an enormous struggle, because I am very close to them and they have some unhealthy habits, which I know, are not good to deal with. I try not to follow in their footsteps because I want to provide for myself and predict my own future. The differences that Youth services have made in my life are going to help me in the community and make a difference in the future.
I have family members who are always saying negative things to me like- “It’s too expensive to attend college,” you’ll never find time,” it’s too late,” and etc. I have long separated from some of these family members because I needed boundaries and knew they were not part of my eventual goals for my life. I ultimately knew that if I didn’t separate, my dreams and a piece of myself would die. As a result, I make sure to concentrate my energy on various healthy challenges and this has helped me to forget about the negative words and impacts in my life. Thank God- that I have been able to succeed in most of my goals.
