My Core Beliefs

Throughout my life, many events and people helped create my beliefs and values. When I think about some of my core beliefs and values, I can pinpoint the event or person I got it from. Some people helped influence me more than others, but without every single one of my experiences, good or bad, I would not be the person I am today.
Over the years I have had many people in my life that have helped guide me into becoming who I am today. My mother is the primary person in my life that guided me and taught me my core values. She has always been an inspiration to me because of how loving and hardworking she is.

She is one of the main reasons I am anti-drug. I’ve seen all of the medicine she has to take just to stay healthy and avoid the disease getting any worse, and it made me question why anyone would want to take drugs willingly. Without her, I don’t think I would be as hard on people who take drugs when they have nothing wrong with them.

It made me realize that people aren't perfect and make mistakes sometimes so you should not define them by one or two wrong choices. It also made me understand that it is a lot easier to forgive someone instead of holding onto anger and hatred towards them. Lastly, the unconditional love my mother has always given to me is the thing that shaped me the most throughout my life. She was always there to soothe when I was younger and that made every issue in my life disappear from my mind. The way she treated everyone around her with kindness and compassion, even if she disliked the person, made me want to be just like her and be able to forgive and love
