My ecomap contains seven circles labeled with people, places, or things that impact my life on a daily basis. These circles list: family, friends, work, school, home, pets, and therapist. My family is a huge part of my life and is one that I have a strong, supportive bond with. While there may be instances of negativity, for the most part my family has a very positive and powerful aspect on my life. I think a huge part of why my family has such a positive impact on my life is because of how close knit we are with each other. My family spends a lot of time together whether it be watching movies on Saturday nights or going on our summer vacations. According to Kuzma (1992), “Healthy families enjoy being together. They work together, play …show more content…
I absolutely love going to school because it is something that keeps me busy in a good way. Being a social work major allows me to take classes that I am very interested in which keeps me interested and not bored with school. My relationship with school has always been positive simply because I love learning and being social with others. My relationship with home is also a relationship that is very positive. For the most part, I have grown up in a small town my entire life. I love being home because the small town atmosphere makes me feel safe, comfortable, and a part of something. My town is very close knit so it is hard to go out and not see at least two or three people you know. While this is something most people met dread, I like it because I like being social with others and feeling a part of something bigger than just the roof my family lives under. I also have a very strong relationship with my pets. Currently, I have four dogs, two cats, and four mice.

There is just something about cuddling with one of the dogs and watching a movie that makes me very happy. My house in the future will always have at least one dog in it. Currently, my relationship with my therapist is stressful and negative. I see a therapist because I am …show more content…

Being in a family where everyone is an adult is sometimes not as close knit and positive, but family defies that idea. We always make time to spend together and talk as a family about almost everything. My brother and I are very close with our parents despite our ages and they are two people we definitely could not live without. My dad, Kurt Hansen, is someone who I have a positive and supportive relationship with. While I may not talk to him about everything, when I do talk to him he gives me his honest opinion. He is someone who supports me in everything that I do. My dad and I are great at spending hours watching movies together. I really appreciate and love the relationship I have with my dad because I know this is something that not all women my age have. The relationship I have with my mom, Anna Hansen, is something that I would not give up for the world. I am very close with mom and she is my biggest supporter in life. When I am having a good or bad day she is always the first person I call to talk to. We spend hours together out shopping, going to meals, or just sitting around talking. My mother raised me to have a positive relationship with her, but was never my best friend. This is something that I appreciate because I was still reprimanded for my wrong-doings, but she was
