Events That Influenced My Life

Superior Essays
There are different events in a person’s life that influences people to make them into who they are and these events/people can be either good or bad. Like when my two sisters died I didn’t know them that well, but if they would have not died my life would have been different. There are all kinds of events that can help us learn lessons in our lives. When I was in elementary I was chased down the hallways by the principal because I brought a water gun to school. There have been many events that have affected my life, but my mom and I leaving my dad has influenced my life the most.
There are many reasons we left my dad one example is finding out he uses drugs. I didn’t know this, but I think sometime after my sister and I were born my mom told

We were going to my grandma’s house because my dad needed to borrow my grandpa’s truck so he could do something. On our way there were going across a bridge, my mom was on the phone with my aunt Christy and he told me and my mom “I’m ready to die how about you two.” My mom looked at him and said “What the hell is the wrong with you” and told my aunt Christy “I’ll talk to you later.” There was a bridge, a deep ditch and a pickup truck in front of us and we didn’t know what he was going to do. So when we got to my grandma’s he got out of the truck and my mom started to pull out and he said “You’re not going to wait for me?” We pulled out and not long after we pulled out my mom got out her mom and dialed 911. She told them what had happened, and we went to our house and started packing. While packing and I was terrified and was afraid he was going to come back. He did come back and somehow he started the yard on fire, I don’t know if he dropped his cigarette or what. But my mom gave me the phone and I was talking to lady on the phone. When we came inside he saw that we were packing and said “Please don’t leave me, I can change.” and my mom said “It’s too late for that,” a deputy sheriff came out and was talking to my parents while I was packing. The deputy sheriff stayed there with my dad while me and my mom got out of there. After we left we had a no-contact order against him so he could not contact me or my mom, and he …show more content…
It’s out in the country so, I don’t feel like I have to look at the window to see if any mysterious cars are driving by, because not many cars drive by. We feel safe and we aren’t worried about my dad finding us, we can actually get sleep. We are not worried about someone following us anymore. We feel we can live freely without worrying if he is going to be there. My mom is talking to someone now, and i’m glad she is happy, but I don’t know if this person is right for her. Even though I haven’t met him, but then again I don’t know how I feel about my mom talking to guys yet. I hope that this person will take care of her and won’t just act nice at first then start hitting her or yelling at her all the time. I just want my mom to be happy since she hasn’t been for the last couple of years with my dad. They were married for about 23 years, that’s a long time and even if they have married awhile time and they have lost some children along the way. Doesn’t mean they have to be together forever that is what my dad thought. And even though we left him and i’m not talking to him right now, I still have the memories of when he was actually a really nice dad and when he wouldn’t shout at me constantly, and maybe one day I will talk to him again. But as of right now I don’t want anything to do with him, and I wish my sister would understand

    During the conversation I showed my grandmother the print-out from Speak Up and she said that she and my grandfather don’t have a will; she said that they had written out some wishes (about cremation and organ donation) on a piece of paper in their fire-proof safe. My mother also confided that she had written her wishes and had it signed by a family friend who is a Commissioner of Oaths. I also found out that my stepdad refuses to write a will because, as a firefighter, the topic of death is too close to reality. This conversation helped me develop empathy towards my family members and their feelings related to…

    I blamed my uncle for being asleep and then myself for not waking up when the alarm went off. My brother did not show guilt, but he was very angry and shocked. My brother “ran up and down our block screaming, waking the neighborhood”. We all were in denial that she was gone. Like I said before, I was not worrying about her being pronounced dead at the funeral home, I was extremely excited to just see, and touch her.…

    Both my parents moved on from each other & found new partners to be happy once again. Bringing someone new to the family might be somewhat difficult in my opinion. Like my parents since they are in their early 40’s they need to know who they will end up with again & if me & my siblings will like that person as their partners. I like both of my parents partners at the moment but they aren’t like someone I’ve known for a long time to be able to say I love them to death & what not. My life wasn’t as i had thought or wanted it to be but i cannot do anything about it.…

    Comparing the two and viewing their responses shows just how different people will respond at different stages of their relationship. I am sure if I had interviewed my grandmother when she and her late husband had just met, their responses might have more closely resembled those of couple B. This information puts relationships into different lights. The success in couple A and the potential success in couple B is a good way to view things. Although I myself have only been dating my boyfriend for just less than two years, there is always the potential that we could turn out like my grandmother did.…

    One time when our family went to visit my grandpa Levi and Grandma Emma for a fun family gathering, my mother walked in on my Aunt Avery, Sean’s Wife, and my Father. Aunt Avery had her hands down my father’s pants. My mother was so upset, but once again, my father lied and said it didn’t happen. I have wished it wasn’t possible for me to have the memories I do from such a young age because then I wouldn’t have to admit it happened to me. I wish I was too young to remember anything regarding my life.…

    Since my mother remarried my biological father was not in the picture much. I am still not exactly sure to this very day why he did not want the responsibility of me; however, he had my two other sister living with him at his house.

I craved for his attention since I never saw him so my mother’s did not really matter to me like my father’s did.…

    A Blended Family Analysis

    • 769 Words
    • 4 Pages

    In my personal opinion, I feel that many parents don’t communicate because of the reasons that they split up in the first place, but parents need to realize that their children are more important than their problems. I live in a blended family with my mom being remarried and my dad was remarried until this year when him and his life split up. My mom always struggled to communicate with my dad because they never got along, which is why they never got married. My mom got over her differences and communicated with him so that I could still see him every month but he never got over it. The reason that I know that he never got over it is because every time I would invite him to come to my mother’s house for a birthday party or my high school graduation he wouldn’t come.…
