Throughout life, our values change and grow. At a young age, we value our toys and material possessions. But, as we mature, our values take on a different role, a more substantial meaning. What I value most at this point in my life is family and friends. My family is what i value most and my friends I count them as my family too but if they were with me since pre-kinder and never done anything bad to me or me to them so we could of stayed together from the past until now. Since I was in Kazen Elementary I was always on my own never really talked to anyone but I did had friends. Although, just like every little kid likes to hang out with the cool kids instead of the kid being bullied so they won’t get bullied. However, it didn’t bothered me because after school; my friends and I always get together and play video games or play outside. Yet, in fourth and fifth grade is when everybody started to not be around me no more, talk to me, and even my friends. Who I thought they were my friends but really they were just being bullies all the time. When I entered middle school there was some people being bullied including myself. So, I made some choices in my life either do something with myself or just stay the same as who I am. I used to be a fat kid and that was easy for people to call me names. Nor, little that they know I started exercising with my cousin everyday in the United Campus and always pushed myself to not look like I used to look before. After that, people see me in

I was 11 years old when I started getting bullied at school. A group of ten girls made comments about everything from my facial and body structure to the way I walked down the halls. I would come home only to lock myself in my room and cry. It did not take long for the bullying to take its toll on me. I became incredibly lethargic, miserable, anxious, and antisocial. I started to fake sickness to get out of going to school, my grades slipped, and my appearance became sickly. Slowly, I started to despise the girl who looked back at me in the mirror. These characteristics did not fit my usual self and the people closet to me started to
The thing I value most in my life is my independence. I love being able to not have to depend on others to make my way through life. As the first born child, I have had to deal with my parents helicopter parenting me, trying to do everything for me. As I got older I had realized that I did not like my parents doing everything for me, it made me feel powerless to be able
None of my friends from the past were in my classes; hence, I was not able to turn to them for support. I would walk alone in the halls which gave three boys the opportunity to talk to me. In the beginning of the school year, the boys would form an unpretentious dialect with me on occasions. By the end of the first marking period, marching band and color guard ended and the three boys began to hector me daily about my interests. I tried opening up to a few of the girls in my class, but I quickly realized they were not truthfully my friends. I believed that talking to them about the three boys would help me, but they did not seem to understand or care. This caused me to become more insecure. By the middle of the second marking period, I would barely talk to anyone. The bullying grew excessive, which led me into a severely depressed state. The situation made me question my worth and made me feel there was no one who could help. I refused to confide in anyone about what I was going through. The boys’ torture increased as they commented about my physical appearance. Those comments caused havoc in my mind, and caused my self-esteem to continue decreasing. Finally, when the second marking period came to an end, winter color guard started. After a few short weeks, my color guard instructor, Mrs. Annette, noticed a change in my behavior and then gave me advice on how to handle the situation. I did not take advice
Throughout our lifetime, us as people decide to admire different objects, ideas, and people due to what pleases their thoughts and actions. The infinite examples of things we could’ve valued could’ve been toys, friends, book, etc.. But then we began to mature and begin to come out of our little shells to discover new products, views of the world, and new ways to advance in our technology and therefore influencing what we value today. And as I matured in my lifetime, I established a novel value to my parents the greatest.
As an elementary school student, I did not have many friends. I had not been with my classmates since preschool, so I was an outsider from the start. Being so young and ignorant, I did not really see that I was bullied, disliked, and unwanted, however, as I became more mature I realized that these people I would spend 8 years of my life with looked for anything to nitpick, from my rupunzelesque hair to my love for drawing. Come middle school, I finally and completely understood the animosity, and still sat alone at lunch, worked alone in class, replied with silence to their words, and when I was even assaulted I did nothing more but shrug it off and try to ignore it. However, when I would come home in the evenings I would retreat to my bedroom where it would all hit me at once. The anguish led to rivers of tears, insomnia, low grades, a refusal to leave my home, and eventually even suicidal tendencies. My drawings became graphic, about suicide, loneliness, and the anger I felt. The school believed I had ADHD, my parents believed it was just a phase, but they were blinded by their own problems at the workplace.
No matter our age we will always value something. Whether it's a toy, friends, or family will differ between us. At a young age, we might value our toys and more materialistic possessions opposed to when we mature because we start to value more non materialistic things like friends or family. I personally value the place my family and I live in.
Over the course of my life my values have changed based on circumstance. Currently if I had to list out my top five values in descending order they would be: religion, family, education, country, and culture. I value religion first and foremost because of my beliefs system that has been instilled in me since I was a child. " If you place God first in your life, then everything else will work itself out", is something my Grandfather has always told me. Family is something that doesn 't necessarily come first, but is a very high value to me. I identify as being a very caring father and husband, the protector, and head of my household. My family has always been supportive of my decisions. They have influenced me to always give my best at everything and to persevere when I fail. Education is the new value that has began to take a precedence in my life. Education is the bridge to success that I am striving to succeed at. Without education I cannot properly attend to my family 's needs. The time demand of education also puts it very high on my values list because it warrants the majority of my attention.
I have some friends that inspire me to create new things and others that bring me down. I’ve learned to get rid of the bad influences in my life to make room for the good ones. When I got rid of the bad ones it made me feel a lot better about myself as a person. I used to not have many friends at all, but now I have a lot. I don’t have as many as others, but I have a few true friends. During elementary school and middle school, I was bullied a lot. I was picked on because I wasn’t pretty enough or tall enough. This made me feel like I was the worst person on the planet. I never thought I was good enough. I was often called “shorty.” Most people wouldn’t take offense to this but I took it really hard. Not only was I being bullied by people at school, I was being bullied at home too. My brother and I didn’t get along and my parents were fighting a lot. My cousins didn’t like me so they would gang up on me and cause mental damage. Sometimes they were able to cause physical harm to me. I eventually had to learn to smile and push it away. The bullying stopped when I got to high school but, there is always that one person who will try to bring me down. I started to feel a lot better when I could just push it all
In my life, there are things I value very highly. At the top of this list is family. You can have anything in this world, but without family, it is not worth it. Family are the people who love you, motivate you, comfort
Ezequiel Pagan Patrick Williams English 111 16 October 2014 Family Value and Truth Family in society is a social structure. Family plays a key role in human life because it can give people a sense of home, or a loving and supportive group. In most cases when people think of families they think of having a mom, dad, brother, sister. However, nothing in life is perfect. Today, we have separated , same sex, extended, and blended families.

Core values are a person or an organization's fundamental beliefs, these principles prescribe behavior along with helping people understand the difference between right and wrong, “values are what motivate you in life.
