Why I Want To Be Essay

Improved Essays
Many times, I have looked through the mirror, and said “I need to become more.” These words are not because of lack of confidence, but because with my background, I have learned that there is a need to love oneself to love others. I want to be the type of person people look up to, a person of action and a keeper of words. I have analyzed who I am, and how much work I need to do. “It is too late to change my past; therefore, I will strive to become a better individual by not committing the same mistakes and do my best to fight for justice at the given moment.”

Before that year, I saw myself as teenager that is hard working. I worked so hard at everything I did, that I barely gave time for my thoughts. I accepted positions in my community/church that made me feel important, kind, loyal and caring. These positions allowed me to expect more of myself so I could help others. I had that desire be an advocate for children; I gathered energy so I could become independent. I would feel weak at times, but I would be able to get myself back up because I was fighting for others. I saw myself as a

I had lost my voice in this battle. I could not let go of the memories, I could not grasp the reality, so I broke. Those who remained loyal to God had given me a hand. My new support system heard my words and I was set free. I learned that I did not need to let go of the memories, but embrace them and use them towards my bright future, I learned to accept the reality of moving to a new place and teach myself that it was for the greater good. Today I realize that not everyone is who they say they are, and that is okay. I forgive them, I forgive myself. At that time I did not do anything to defend the truth and defend my God, but now I have a true reason to fight for. Moving from my social/spiritual home was the hardest thing I have done recently, but it is the best choice I have ever

    I have both received and given support, encouragement and prayer in ways that I never experienced to this extent before. God is using me right where I am, within and because of my circumstances; I pray this is a lesson I will not forget. I am doing my best to seek God’s will for my life, I don’t have a complete picture of that yet and I am not sure I ever will because then I would not need to trust him. I do believe that he has called me to pursue my Psychology degree though I am not sure to what end. I have considered the possibility that this is purely for my own need to grow, learn and be challenged, for a possible career change, to serve within my church or to serve another non-profit organization.I don’t know God’s plan but I will keep seeking him and in time I believe he will make things clear to me.I feel focused, driven and motivated to seek and follow God’s will for my life wherever it may lead.…

    They always filtered everything through scripture. People always mattered more than prestige to my family. I was taught that if I had to lose to do the right thing, I would lose but represent Christ. When I was younger this concept was frustrating due to the fact that I am competitive by nature, but as I matured, the values began to settle into place and I was grateful for their stance. Finally, one of the greatest lessons that I learned from my parents was the importance of the church.…

    My life has changed, and I have become a happier person, a better person at that. I took it upon myself to change, yes for me, but also for my boyfriend and my soon to be child. I realized that even though I have gone through all the tough stuff I have been through, I still deserve to be loved, and I am loved. I have learned that, my past does not define who I am, it does not determine who I become. My past, my past is responsible for making me stronger, making we want to change and not let it become who I am.…

    One of the major things I learned and realized is that prayer together like what we did is a powerful thing and can bring people together and encourage and help one another. It can be difficult to pray in front of others and especially about personal things going on in their lives. I just learned to trust others with my problems and request and that they could do the same thing. I don’t think I would have learned and grown as much if this was not a small group project. Small group and prayer are very important parts in the spiritual walk.…

    The ending of life is a new reflection to learn, teach, amd experience. Don’t always take up life as a game if winning makes us move on and losing means giving up, then our lives are pointless; life doesn’t really work out that way, when we lose we should get back up and learn from the mistakes and move on to better choices in life. We get to learn through our experiences in life and teach it to others what are struggling because all of us are having bad times in our lives and stepping in to help makes a big difference. No matter how weak we are in our lives we will always be strong in some way, but we shouldn’t care about what others think about…

    My life themes included attachment formation, relationship formation, identity formation, and learning more about adulthood. Without these factors, I would not be the person I am today. I do not dwell on anything from the past, but I do believe that when I am a parent, I will handle many things differently with my own children. Again, I would not be on the path that I am today without all my experiences so I would not want to change anything from the past. I do not blame my parents, but I am moving forward and trying to better myself now on a personal and professional level.…

    I think everyone should have a positive and a happy life, sometimes people are stuck in a mindset that is hard for them to see things differently. Helping out with the deaf culture would be a change in my life and make it into the better to possibly get me out of my mindset. Deaf people deserve to get the chance to hear and who knows maybe the procedure to help their hearing may fail but it is the fact that they tried. Everyone in life should get a chance to change something whether it may fail or succeed. I feel as if this would impact my life in so many ways and it would teach me a lot of life lessons along the way.…
