My Goals In My Life Essay

Improved Essays
The most important goal I want to achieve in my life is to get married and be a happy family. Ever since I was a little girl I always tried to imagine my wedding and my perfect life after marriage. There is this part of me that can 't wait for me to be settled and have someone close to me that cares about me. But there is another part that has this fear of giving up my independence and not being truly loved.

Knowing my personality and my nature I don 't think I would ever have found anyone for myself. I imagine myself being successful in my career but living with my parents. By not having someone depending on me I would be about to travel the world. I would be disappointed in myself because I realize how important marriage is to my parents. I can imagine myself seeing my siblings happy with their spouses and children and secretly hoping I had my own as well. I would love my independence.

I can imagine having my own family: me my husband and our three children. I can imagine family vacations, holidays and making wonderful memories with each other. I find my life being happily married far more attractive than single and

    “We never know the love of a parent till we become parents ourselves,” said Henry Ward Beecher. I agree that I will never figure out the greatness of my parents until I raise my child and go through the same experience that my parents went. Parents always try to do the best and give the best to their children. Their affection to their child is so huge that it is immeasurable. The method of giving this love and care might be wrong or misguided, but their intention for wanting their children to live better lives is always right.…

I can also relate to Rishi because he wants to be an engineer because his parents what him too. He wants the happiness of his parents.…
