Core Values In My Life

Good Essays
My family roots are established in the southern part of West Virginia in a small town called Craigsville. In the south it is very common to help anyone, no matter if you know them or not. Everyone is very friendly and no matter where you are, someone will come up and say hello and ask how you are doing. These values have made me the person I am today in the aspect that I am very friendly and willing to talk to anyone. I believe this is one of my core values and I strive to be the best and nicest person I can be every day.
Almost all of my family on both sides has worked in the coal mines in West Virginia. Therefore, they have shown me what it is like to have a good work ethic. Working as a coal miner is a very hard job and it causes many

I was raised in a house where we had family dinner at the table every night, no matter what time it was and how many practices we had that night. I have a very close relationship with my parents that most kids my age do not get to experience. I believe I have this type of relationship because they did not have a close relationship with their parents when they were my age. My dad’s parents got a divorce when he was 18. When my grandpa was still living the relationships we had on that side of the family were very hard to establish because it seemed like we were always torn between the two. On my Mom’s side, she developed a closer relationship as she got older with her parents. It was easier to develop relationships because my grandparents on that side were still married, so we did not have to go to two different houses to visit. My parents have always had great communication with my brother and I since we were in middle school. They have always said that they would trust us till we did something that would cause them to lose trust. This is why in my relationships, personal and professional, I believe communication is the key to success. My parents have influenced me to always be honest and communicate. In my opinion, this is why I have such strong family values. I often consider my parents as my best friends, and they have helped me build stronger relationships in my life …show more content…
I now understand why I am the person I am today. I was taught to tell the truth and follow the rules. Many people make fun of me for following all the rules, but it does not bother me because I was raised to act this way. Being the devoted Christian I am today, is also influenced by my family. My mom would always take us to church every Sunday, and when we would go visit, we would go with my Mawmaw and Pawpaw. Finally, the values I have and the religion I believe in has allowed me to be the best person I can be every day. In conclusion, the values I have will help me in the nursing field when I graduate. Ethical values are different in every person, so I have the respect to not pass judgement on values that I do not believe

    She told me that he was a forever friend that could live in my heart. When I went home that day, I told my parents that I wanted to ask Jesus into my heart. My father and I talked for a long time. I was a pretty articulate little girl, so he just asked me a bunch of questions to be sure I knew what I was saying. That day, I prayed with my dad that Jesus would be my Lord and Savior.…

    Parents Everyone has a symbol of what they want or need in life, and how it has come to symbolize everything that they want, as well as what it represents, in that hand my symbol and something that means so much to me will have to be my parents. To me my parents represent happiness, protection, and ambition. Parents in general are the closest human beings that we will ever have. Parents don’t just love and care for us just because we are intelligent, or have a nice haircut, but because we are what we are- their children. To me, my parents represent love.…

    An unknown author quoted,” It is so easy to believe someone when they are telling you exactly what you want to hear. But you have to watch what they do too. Actions speak louder than words- actions speaks the whole truth.” I relay back to this quote often, with life changing struggles. The bond that my family shares not only proved this quote is real but it is what some people should live their life by. As a result of growing up in a close family, I have learned the importance of being a wonderful parent, evolving myself throughout the community, and cherishing myself more.…

    I am not really sure what it was, being that I was so young, that made my mom and dad take the initiative to finally find their set careers. I knew it was something that they always wanted to do, but between raising three kids, and working their other jobs, the time and financial situation was not compatible with what they wanted to do. I remember overhearing my parents having discussions about financial problems, or jobs, but my brothers and I never saw them give up. As I got older I was more aware of what was going on because I actually started to understand everything. Eventually my mother got her teachers certification and is working in a school, my father got his smog license (he has always loved working on cars), and owns his own smog shop.…

    Andrea Roman Analysis

    They believe that all other work or chores should be done before Sunday, so that on Sunday they can fully devote themselves to worshipping God and appreciating family. Roman’s mother believed that there is plenty of time other days of the week to get done what needs to be done. Roman says her mother would say “Sundays are not the day to leave homework for.” In the Bolivian culture they believe that a person should prioritize their work and make sure it is done before Sunday, so that they are free to spend time with family and God on Sundays. In America this is a value that many Christian homes follow as well; however, it is probably not valued to that same degree. The American, Christian home values Sundays for family and worship, but they may not be as strict about doing homework on Sundays.…
