Families are important even if they are our blood relatives or close friends “If blood and roots don’t do the job, then we must look to water and branches…” Even if families are far away, families can be made from friends and new people you meet.
From this podcast, I learned that family is very important to people. For kids, it is a sense of security. Although Maurice and the Harris’s family cannot be considered a traditional family, they were still a family. I learned that in society today the word family is being used differently. One does not have to be a birth son or birth daughter to be called a child. You do not need to have your own child to create a family. A family consist of people you love and people who love you. There are many hardships to keep a family stable, but it is all worth it in the end. A family is not about having an economic unit or having someone take care of you when you get old. It is about the present. Family will always be there for you no matter what happens.
Family is supposed to listen to you when you're in need. Family is supposed to have your back. Family is supposed to be loyal. Family is supposed to be dependable. Family is supposed to accept you at your worst and best moments. Family is supposed to make you laugh and smile. Family is the number one unconditional love that everyone has. Whether it be the unconditional love from immediate family members or close friends, everyone has that one person they go to in times of need. It’s funny how those closest to you can hurt you the most.
Please sit down and relax for a moment, and ask yourself the question of all questions: What is most important to you in life? This is a question asked by many psychologists, surveyors and even employers. A common answer is “I just want to be happy and successful and follow my dreams.” But think about it– who really makes you happy? Who helps you become successful? Who inspires you to follow your dreams? To this people generally answer: Family. Now imagine what it would be like to have your family taken from you in the spur of a moment.
My family, which are my three boys are my world. Every decision, including going back to school and working nights so I could be there for them during the day was made with them in mind. Family means different things for different people. I personally do not think family can just be classified as mom, dad and kids. It is whomever has made the decision to go through life together as a team. The author of our text book, Kendall describes family like this, “As relationships in which people live together with commitment, form an economic unit and care for any young, and consider their identity to be significantly attached to the group.” (Kendall, 2014) I personally think family is the foundation that makes us who we are and makes society so
Christopher McCandless’s family was a nuclear one with dark secrets. He lived with his parents, Billie and Walt, and his sister Carine. When Chris discovered his parents dark past his decision to break away, and stay away, had been decided.
At this point in my life, i would like to say that i value my happiness most in life. In my mind, I mean happiness can mean a lot of different things, and the definition may vary from one person to another.As for me, I mean this happiness means different things for me, such as, i hope my parents have good health, i hope my friends happy everyday and so many things around me. I honestly wish that were the case. Over the past year, i have had a significant amount of time to think about why i feel the way i do about the components of my life, i always ask myself what do i want through my life. In doing so i believe that my family is my most valuable entity.
During the first interview with my 83 year old mom, Shirley, family was a key ingredient to her happiness. She was raised to believe in marriage and large families, as well as never putting herself first. Her happiness lies within knowing that she is making her family happy and spending time with her loved ones. She never asks for much, but always gives more than anyone could ever ask. Acts of such
I believe that friends and family are the true cause of happiness. When you have friends and family, you have those who care for you. When you have them, you don’t really need anything else. When you have a family and some really good friends, you know that they will always be there for you. You know that you can always count on them, and you definitely know that you can trust them with a secret or anything personal. When you are surrounded by them, you realize that nothing in the world can ever replace them. But, what is more important to have in your life? Friends or family?
For myself, family has always been the most important aspect to my life. I would do anything for my family, for without them, I would not be the man I am today. Whether it be my grandfather, who inspired me through the telling of his own life story how to take the hardships you face and learn from them, and use them to become a superior person; Or my two older brothers, who helped to guide me throughout my life and teach me to use every lesson and opportunity grow and become better. It was also the family I created throughout my life, my friends, for it was them who taught me how to work together as a team, and how making a mistake is the only way to develop and become improved. Every part of my ever-expanding family helped in one way or another to shape and manifest the person I am today and the mechanical engineer I hope to become one day.
Like most people family is my number one priority. The family is the single most important influence in a child's life. From the moment we are born, we depend on parents and family to protect us and provide us with our needs. Our family forms our first relationships. Our family is our first teacher and act as role models in how to act and how to experience the world around them. By nurturing and teaching us during our early years, families play an important role in making sure we are ready to enter the world as a responsible adult. Not everyone in the world has experienced
“It is in a home and with a family that values are usually acquired, traditions are fostered, and commitments to others are established” said American religious leader, lawyer, and politician, James E. Faust. Spending time and having a significant bond with your family is very important. What makes a family so special is knowing they will always be there for you, always have your back, and will love you no matter what. The time that’s spent together and the memories made are incomparable. These traditions and memories provide a strong foundation by holding families together and creating opportunities for them.
