Life Stories

Reviewing My Past and Gazing at the Future

As I get ready for an upcoming wedding, I often wonder, what will my wedding be like? Will I ever get married? And who would I even consider a good fit? I can be very picky with a lot of things, especially when I would have to deal with that decision for the rest of my life. This is when I think about all of the things I learned as a child.

My parents have always told me to watch my surroundings. So, that is what I have done my whole life. I have learned that, not only are people having problems in life, they are having problems outside their life. Many people don’t realize that decisions made by others can directly influence their own health. This is why I have chosen to go into the Social Working field. I believe that I can help these actions and thoughts.

Since we are on the topic of actions and thoughts, I will give you some advice. If you see someone struggling with something, offer some assistance. One of my favorite stories is one where an officer gets out of his car to help an elderly woman cross the road. He even stopped traffic in order for her to arrive safely. Not many people do those things anymore. They are more interested in what they can get away with in life.

One last thing to consider: Who do you communicate with? Being around people who don’t listen to you can be frustrating. So, ask yourself, “Why do I put myself into this situation?” Sometimes, you just don’t know the answer to that question. Maybe, you think that those people make you feel like you are at home. If you are having trouble making choices in life, talk to someone.
