My personal ethics lens includes my personal actions and behaviors, my core values, and responsibilities. My personal preferred lens is the results lens and the reputation lens. I sensibly listen to my intuition to determine the best for everyone and the character traits and ethic beliefs that will best suit my fellow classmates. I am sometimes content with too little and have unrealistic role expectations, relying too much on the virtues related to someone’s role, absent to the fact that others can fail regardless of their part in the project. However, I am very self-reliant and posses accountability.
During that time I was also traumatized by exposure to severe storms. According to Scottish Rite Hospital psychologists, the early neglect appeared to have impacted my ability to perform certain developmental functions typically encouraged and taught by parents. Because of my positive attitude, determination and the support and love of my parents, I have overcome these obstacles and I am successful in school with a 92+% average, rank in the top 20% of my class and will graduate on the distinguished plan with 15 college hours. I am involved in National Honor Society, Student Council, Yearbook, Spanish Club, Drama Club, Math and Science Club and I play Varsity Tennis. In the late fall of 2009, my mom was put on dialysis treatment three (3) times a week.
High school relationships can easily have a positive and negative effect on the success of students. Friends can help each other with school work or they can distract and slow each other down, it depends on the student’s personality. It would be very difficult to be a high school student if you had a negative attitude towards school, because you would not be dedicated enough to complete homework, or to hand assignments in on time. A lack of sleep and nutrition makes it difficult for students to function fully during class, to succeed you must be wide awake and ready for each class. Extra-curricular activities are a good way for students to get even more involved with school, and usually give students a positive reputation.
Even in a marriage, it is important to look within ourselves for the necessary changes to be made. Psalm 139:23-24 states, “23Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; 24And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting”. That is where this paper will focus, on searching one’s heart and knowing oneself, leaving it up to God for what we need, and building a successful marriage. Introduction Modern psychology, and self-help gurus fill the air with self-concepts. Self-esteem, self-worth, and self-image, are words bantered around like they are gods in and of themselves.
I thought that I would make friends right away and do well in school, but I did not. People were not only very judgmental but they would bully me for being different. At the age of nine or ten I could not understand why they hated me so much. There were many times where I would come home to my family crying my eyes out. It has taken me years to make good friends, but now that I have them I feel ambitious and more motivated.
I found myself to be very successful in that area until my junior year; when I realized some of those friends could not be trusted. As high school progressed and the drama plied up, I had to remain focused. This may have been one of the biggest challenges for me. Additionally time became an issue when I began playing sports. Attempting to complete the heavy workload assigned by my teachers all the while trying to uphold my social life, it was evident as my lack of attention began to show in grades.
Growing up in Germany my parents divorced when I was just a pre-teen. I switched schools and my mother worked two jobs, supporting our new family of three. She eventually met my step-father and remarried. They had another child and I get along wonderfully with my 13 year younger step-sister, which is not the case with my two year younger sibling. Stress, up-rooting from our hometown, not having a father in my life, all these things I am just starting to realize, affected me in many more ways than I thought.
Conflict was one of the hardest things for me to maintain as a pre-teen, but at this age I feel like I’ve grown tremendously. With this new understanding of my ability to work for peace during conflicting times, I feel as though life will be much more meaningful. It will help me succeed in ways, I can never comprehend. Using this knowledge I can improve on my conflict managements skills and use them through life, more efficiently than ever. In life we will always have conflicts, at home, at work and even at school.
My personal preferred lens is the Equality/Rationality in the Relationship lens. The Equality/Rationality Lens means that I use my reasoning skills to determine what should and needs to be done to ensure fairness for all. The strength of this lens is my ability to research all options and implement the options that I feel are fair to the situation and everyone involved. My weakness is that I can put too much thought into what is right in a situation, I tend to impose my will on others without looking to see that there might be other options relevant to the situation. I may also be tempted to exempt myself and others from the rules convinced that the rules were meant for others or that the actions I am taking really are fair for everyone.
One example of this in my personal experience was in my freshman year of high school when I received my first D on my report card, and it didn’t come alone it had a twin. The realization that I even came close to failing was enough to scare me, but that wasn’t all, I also received a ton of speeches on how school was too important (of course it is
