One day in 6th grade I met my hero and best friend. She saved me by many things that day, but this was the most caring one. We were walking around a round the gym and talking, when we walked into a boy I had problems with. We lashed out at each other saying stuff like "you stink!" , "stop being and arse!", etc. She tried to get me to stop arguing eventually I did, after him and his minions stomped away.
Today I am talking about how my best friend and I met. My best friend’s name is Sydney Rott. The story of how we met is a cliché but I am going to explain it anyway. We didn't know each other up until my Sophomore year and her Junior year.
My identity has essentially changed after some time from the time I was an adolescent till now that I'm a grown-up. Age has fundamentally added to how I see things, how I respond to issues, and how I connect with other individuals. A portion of the elements that have added identity changes as a part of my identity incorporates going into submitted connections and headway in my professions. I have created increment in positive attributes like good faith and a reduction in characteristics that are viewed as negative, for example, neuroticism. Contrasted with the time I was a young person, I have fundamentally turned out to be more mindful, more pleasing, and all the more sincerely steady. I recall that I used to battle a considerable measure

It was the first week of summer, after graduating high school. Most of my friends were gone away to college or had jobs. Parents working and older siblings have moved away. It was the beginning of adulthood. I owned nothing to my name, I had no job, no car or any motivation. The only useful thing I had was a friend. Nancy, she has been in my life since we first met in middle school. How we became friends, she gave me two dollars. Those two dollars made our friendship. Just like Esperanza gives up her three dollars for a bike and some friends, Nancy did the same. She willingly gave up her lunch money, so I wouldn't starve at school. Since that day we became best friends. We had the same struggle and we almost have everything in common, and we

There are incidents that occur in our lives that test our ability to overcome and persevere. These events albeit life changing are integral in developing your personal identity. When a series of incidents occurred at the end of last summer, I fought hard to avoid falling into a serious pothole
The first time we met, I didn’t realize that the seemingly meathead jock with the deep rumbling voice would teach me how to be me and swim in the oceans of life. In putting my trust in him, I gained an inveterate friend who has always been there to pick me up when I fell and knows exactly how to right my path. When we met, I was abashed by life and petrified to be me; he was self-assured, impeccable in every aspect of life. He has saved me more times than could possibly be counted; everyone should be so lucky as to have a friend like him.
When reflecting on my personal development as an undergraduate college student at Chapman University, themes that consistently resonated with me were growth, change, achievement, challenges, and aspiration. Additionally, it was important to examine how the range of expectations I had for myself when entering college specifically affected the importance of
Everybody has an identity, it makes them individual and unique, and it defines who you are as a person. This project about my identity showed me what makes me unique. I would have never known how much my friends mean to me or how my identities connect with each other. I have three identities that make me who I am, cultural, personal, and social. A specific quality that covers my cultural identity is being Czechoslovakian. Both sides of my family have at least a part of Czech in them. My great-grandparents are from Czech Republic and my grandpa was the first generation in America, he was born in Ohio. This is very important because I have always identified as Czech and it is a big part of me, as I am so interested in ancestry. For my personal identity, the biggest part is my personality, being loud and outgoing, has always been important to me. The reason being, it is how people view me. A lot of people know me as the loud person or the person who talks a lot. That is meaningful to me considering I like people to view me in a certain way The last identity, social, is one of the most important to me because it involves my friends, and through this project, I learned how vital they really are to my social identity. I realized that I have a good amount of friends in this project. It is nice to have people as a support system and to relate with. These qualities show that I value being loud and outgoing. It also says that I value my family and they are a big part of life. The last one, social, ties in with the first one because it shows I am outgoing and friendly.
When I was in kindergarten, I met my best friend. She was very shy at first and nothing about her seemed malicious. However, as the years went by, she became very imperious and unwilling to share anything, including friends. She wouldn’t allow me to befriend any other people without putting up a fight. However, she was allowed all the friends she pleased. Over the years she began to push everyone apart so that she was the common area between a bunch of enemies. Eventually, she and I began to argue over petty things and she would always make me feel as if I did something wrong. A massive argument then arose and I began to lose hope for our friendship because even though she was using me, I was oblivious at the time. The fight did separate us, and I was quite somber about the situation. However, this was when I realized all the things she had been doing wrong; all the things that I was better off without. The ending of our friendship for this period of time allowed me to reach this epiphany that I was my own person able to have my own friends, able to make my own decisions, able to be happy about my accomplishments. This sudden realization lifted the doleful weight from my shoulders, allowing me to become a much happier person with a new outlook on my life. Like I stated before, sometimes it takes us until we reach our lowest point to realize the journey that awaits, to regain the hope and strength that was lost
