A family is the most important social group to which a person could belong to. Our families teaches us about the importance of knowledge, education, hard work and effort. It teaches us about enjoying ourselves, having fun, keeping fit and healthy. It teaches us all the social and moral etiquettes which a person learns and they learn them because of their family environment. The conditions in a family very much affect the livelihood and working of an individual. There for making your family very important.
There are so many reasons why a family is important. A family is what a person has been around their whole life they have helped that person even if that person doesn’t notice, the family has helped. and no matter what there is a bond between each person in a family a love that you can’t quite explain even when someone in the family has done something to hurt you no matter what happens you will love them even if you don’t think so now.
But that is not what this speech is about, I will be focusing on how a family helps; 1.)shapes the personality, 2.) develops emotional strength, and 3.) can work as a support system.
I.It shapes the personality. Now how dose our family shape our personality? A.Well since childhood, we are taught be in accordance with the family traditions and cultures which have been going on since generations. B.The basic principles of life and lessons to live it nicely are also given to us by our family. C. The social, moral, and educational background decides the present and future of the child and that is decided by the family, especially the parents. (Transitional Phrase: It is the family which helps us to grow well and deal with the challenges of life because of how our emotional strength was developed).
II. When the family goes through a hard time or a joyous time all the members of the family go through it and that is how our development of emotional strength is started. A.When family environment is good and stress free, then the mind of an individual remains delighted and free of any pressure. B.But if the family is broken or if there are continuous family problems every now and then, this leads to serious mental stress. C.This in turn, has difficult effects on the education, career and future of a person. In other words, the emotional strength of a person and our ability to overcome crisis situations for the most part depends on how we have been brought up. (Transitional Phrase: When a family is well put together the and family members encourage us to do something we will certainly feel confident about whatever it is even if we are not that great at that certain thing.)
III. Whenever we are looking for support we always look to those that we know will support us and so when our family works as a support system it will certainly help us a lot. A.And in order to do any job well, a person needs some backing or support to keep their confidence level high. B.Family is the biggest source of this because the family members know that person better than anyone else. therefore they know what is right for the individual and what is not and family should tell you what is not good for u or what they know you certainly cant do. C. If the family always help and encourages that person and that person can trust them then they and will go to them for advice or support trusting them to help them and trusting their judgment if they should or shouldn’t do something. D. Most importantly the family will always be with a person, even in the worst times of that individuals life the family will go through it with them.
Therefore “Cherish your life, Cherish your health, Cherish your family, and Cherish your friends. For these are the things that money can’t buy and will define your true wealth”.-unknown Appreciate your family because when everything goes downhill your family will be right there with you. And some people don’t have that, some people have to deal with struggles on their own and have a hard time because they do not having a family to help them go through it, yes they might have friends that will help them but there friends don’t have the deep connection that you have with your family they haven’t gone through all that you have because they haven’t been at your side as your family has. You might think that your brothers and sisters haven’t gone through the same thing that you have but there is such a deep connection between a family that they have dealt with you and how you take the situations. There is a reason why God gave you your family and not just a friend that you know for a couple of years. there is a reason why you will have them in your life forever. However as I said before there is so much more but now is not the time for that, for now I hope you can see how a family is important because of how it helped shape the personality, develop emotional strength, and works as a support system. Families are like branches on a tree. We grow in different directions but our roots remain as one. So “No matter how bad things get, no matter how wrong things go, family will always be there! So treasure the family you have and don’t take them for granted!”- Nishan Panwar
