Dr. Sandra D. Wilson (2001) asks, “Have you ever felt as if you were the only caterpillar in a butterfly world? Do you often feel as if you have to do twice as much to be half as good as other” (p. 16)? If you answered, yes, then that is what Wilson (2001) calls binding shame. “Shame is the soul-deep belief that something is horribly wrong with me that is not wrong with anyone else in the entire world. If I am bound by shame, I feel hopelessly, distinguishingly different and worthless (p. 16).
This paper is the development of my personal theory on Christian Counseling. I use many scriptural references to support my beliefs and stress the importance of gaining wisdom and knowledge from the bible. It incorporates all of the presentations, readings, and critiques I did at Liberty University’s Theology and Spirituality in counseling course. I talk about how I integrate Psychology, Theology, and Spirituality into my Christian counseling and believe that they all have a lot to offer the Christian counselor. The role of integration and multitasking is necessary to be an effective Christian counselor under the guidelines of the American Association of Christian
It was back sometime in the summer of 2004 when my life would be uprooted and changed. The day we left, my dad sat me in his bedroom and said he would always be my dad, and that he loved me. My mom had packed all our things in her little white Nissan that worked only half the time, and we made the trek to our new home. The ride was long, and my brother being only three years old was not too happy about that. When we got to the house, the shudders were black and the drive-way was unpaved. In the front yard stood a man I had never seen before. His beer gut was small but obvious enough, what little hair he had left poked out of his trucker hat. His face had
Being a freshman in College could be troublesome for others. Some find it easy and breeze through college; some takes time to find their comfort zone. A student must be able to know their positive and negative aspects of everyday task throughout College. Responsibility, motivation, and knowing the benefits and drawbacks are some of the qualities that a student must possess in order to be successful in College.
PLF 4M1 is a class like no other, a class which will help you develop many important and useful skills necessary in order to become successful. Rather than being taught with lessons and notes, the class is taught with a hands on approach. Each task done within helps promote leadership, time management, team work, organization, and stepping out of comfort zones. The very first task was the Popsicle stick bridge where teams were competing to see whose bridge could hold the most weight before cracking. This specific task was just a small taste of what was to come. Students were given a time limit and a limited amount of supplies, which forced teams to work together in order to be most successful. Time management was important factor because if
A time when self doubt got the best of me was my senior year of high school. As concert band season was about to start, had self doubt about playing flute as first chair. Instead of auditioning like my previous years in high school, ended up taking a Spanish course. My band teacher was upset when he found out that band was no longer on my schedule. He wanted me to try out at least. My self doubt as a flute player got the best of me, and never tried out my senior year. No longer having band impacted me by forgetting how to play flute. Instead of increasing my skills and knowledge of music it started to diminish. However, started to pick up a new skill. At first was regretting my decision because Spanish felt too difficult. Eventually, the more
It's easy enough to write about one's family and friends and how they've been an inspiring part of life. Though, to write about a stranger is a whole other ball game. Bella is a child I met while volunteering at church; she was a five year old little girl that barely spent time with her parents. It was a challenging, yet perceiving week with her that made me realize that I should appreciate my family.
A true sense of self-discovery can be found in different circumstances for different people. As each individual has their own desires, needs and values, they find their place in the world. Sometimes when finding a sense of self, an individual is able to find a strong connection between themselves and the people who surround them, transforming the lives of others. These discoveries are shown in the play “Away” by Michael Gow and short film “Paperman” by John Kahrs. Through the use of a sophisticated range of techniques like theatrical and film devices, an exploration of discovery is shown.

My first day as a member of the 501st... it was hot, it was sandy, chaotic. Nothing at all like the simulations on Kamino. Of course that's pretty much the way it was for all of us, wasn't it? All that breeding, all those years of training... it doesn't really prepare you for the all the screaming or the blood, does it? Frankly I'm still amazed we ever made it through the first hour, nevermind the first
Daniel and I met up with a friend in Chicago and throughout the whole day we socialized and shared laughter. She had to catch a train home so we walked her to the train and she was trying to order us a Lyft back to where we were staying but we didn’t want her missing her train so we decided to walk home. It was an hour walk to the apartment me we were staying but throughout the whole walk I didn’t mind because I was with the love of my life. We were walking through downtown Chicago at midnight, they say Chicago is one of the most dangerous cities in the world but in that moment I felt nothing but bliss. The glimmering lights hitting the water while walking with Daniel made me feel infatuation that cheesy movies always try to get to but never hit the mark.
I failed to mention certain details in the beginning of my story that I would like to share with you. During my teenage years and before my grandmother had passed, I had experienced true love with an extraordinarily handsome man named Gary, so I was familiar with how it felt, and also knew that I didn’t have that feeling in either of my marriages. Unfortunately, Gary and I went our separate ways, but we have always remained close friends even after I moved away, married, moved back, and married again. He, himself had his own life agenda going on, he married and divorced, and during that time, out of respect for our spouses we kept our communications limited.
I like to believe that I am somewhat intelligent in all areas but, I find that I am most intelligent in self smarts, music smarts, and logic smarts. I use all my intelligences at school but the ones these are the ones that keep me most engaged. For example, I use my self smarts at school when I am studying and when I am trying to fix problems. I find it easier to concentrate when I am alone. I also know what I am good as well as what I lack in. I also use my music smarts regularly at school. I like to sing (although my voice is not quite nice) and I find it helpful to turn things into songs when I’m trying to memorize. I have experience in playing a few instruments like, baritone, cello, guitar, and a bit of the recorder and piano. I think
