Emotional Intelligence
I believe I am lacking emotional intelligence because I don’t always manage my emotions well, but I can stay motivated when things are difficult in my life. There are many examples I could use, but I feel like the most recent would work best. Just a couple weeks ago I experienced myself acting irrationally towards my parents and I was neglecting their feelings, it all started when I began college. My parents were having a hard time with the transition of me not being home anymore and they were always calling and texting me wanting to know what I was doing, and it became very aggravating.

I know he sees me as his little girl, but it’s hard on me when even in college, we are getting in little fights that are always taking too far. Just this past week we go into a fight about him and my step mom texting me wondering what I was doing the night I was hanging out with some of my friends, which included some guys and my step mom played the twenty questions game and wanted to know exactly what I was doing and who it was with I simply told her not to worry about it.

I will try not to shut people out when I’m aggravated, and I will show more empathy towards my family and friends feelings. One day my parents won’t be here and I don’t want to look back as and think of the bad times, but all the good ones. Even though my parents can drive me crazy and I know I do the same to them, I just need to get in the good habit of just getting over it and fixing the mistake. I understand why they do it, when I have
