Humanities Change is good have you ever had a bad day?
Well i have had my fair share of ups and downs some where mostly downs.A lot has changed in my life since April,2011.I learned that “it seems impossible before it happens” now a lot of things in my life seemed impossible.But it happened and i also learned that “life is 10% of what happens to us and 90% of how we react to it”
When bad things happen too me I tend not to react the way i should i tend to shut down and not listen cause I think nothing else could get worse.I was wrong things do get better you just have to be patient . When my uncle Jim passed away i was shocked and so was everyone else in my family it was

They said “sadly yes” I didn’t say a thing all day I just sat there. It was a quiet day and an quiet week and month. A week later it was his funeral. There was a lot of people there . There was over 200. I remember I really didn’t know that many people only like 30 but not every one. I remember my dad's friend said “how you doing faith” i just shrugged my shoulders and kinda teared up. An I remember me and my sister hailey kept getting cookies. And are aunt Tina kept telling us “no you guys have to share”. But we didn’t listen. And we just ran. I remember that every one there was crying even his friends teared up . Then when they took him away to bury him that’s when i knew it was real not a bad dream this was real life . I started balling and it felt like someone one was tearing my heart in half. I was so sad after that I wasn’t trying to smile anymore when people walked by me . I knew my uncle Jim was gone forever …show more content…
Yes I miss him so much. We’ll see him again. He was a awesome and funny uncle. We all greatly miss him but while we had him we sure enjoyed it. I miss him every day. When I ever go to his grave I cry cause I miss him. But now he’s in a better place. I now understand why people pass away because god needs them. I learned don’t ever take people for granted cause you could lose them the next day. I never thought my uncle Jim would die but it happened. And I learned and grew from it. See I’ve heard a lot in my life too much in fact but here’s a sample of some of them “you can change your life if you really want to. You can improve it,make it better and it all starts with you changing the way you think”. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said and people will forget what you did but people will never forget how you treated them good or bad they will remember. My life changed when my uncle Jim passed away I thought it’s never gonna be the same i was right but I learned that your life does not get better by chance it gets better by change. My life sure did change but change is good at least that’s what everyone else tells me. Here’s something to remember life is what you make it always has been and always will

    This crushed me, I felt alone and scared, and wished with all my heart that it was all a dream. Months later, I lost my Aunt Pam and my Uncle Omar in the same week, having so many people pass in such little time brought all of those feelings of pain, and heartache back and so did the depression. I struggled to keep it together, but when things got bad my parents did what they thought was right for me more medication, and more therapy. All this death made me really learn to open up to people. I used to never spoke to my therapist, or anyone for that matter and keep everything bottled up.…

    During that time, I didn’t know what death meant and so sometimes ask my mom “where is daddy?” in which she will tell me that he is in a better place.
