There are many people in the world, yet each person has their unique characteristics, beliefs, and values in which shape them into whom they are today. Some of the things that shape a person into what makes you… You are the way you are raised by your parents, criticism from the media and your peers, as well as religions you choose to follow.
My parents have had a big affect on my life. Although my parents separated at an early age, my father was always in the picture and we have faced many obstacles as a family.
I know that if I am ever in trouble I can always go to them and can trust them with anything. My parents have had a major affect on my life. They have brought me up to be a confident, honest, independent person and I believe that what they have taught me and what we have been through has shaped me into what I have become today.
The media also plays a big part on everyones life including mine. People these days are defined and grouped by how they look, act and dress. I think that this is all because of what people say in the media, books, and magazines. This has an affect on me because it influences me on what I should wear, eat and dress. Media is very important in my life as well as my friends.
My friends are the ones that I tell everything to, look for support from and just have fun with.
Thats why my friends have made a major influence on my life. If I didnt have my friends in my life I wouldnt be the person I am today. I would not be as happy or confident and would struggle through most things with out their support and guidance. Thats why my friends play a major part in my life, and I without them I dont know who Id be.
I think that peoples characteristics differ from where they have been brought up. I have had my life very easy because I have always lived in a good housing, in good areas. Compared to living in a large city like Melbourne, I can feel safe knowing that I live in a little city where there are much littler crimes and is much safer. The police force in Mildura is smaller then Melbournes police force but works just as well by ensuring all laws are kept in place and that everyone knows them and their boundaries, including myself.
In conclusion I think that everyone is unique for the way that they have been raised and the choices they have chosen to make through out their life. I love my life and I do not regret anything that has happened and believe that everything happens for a reason. I may have been through very difficult times in my life, but I see them as hurtles that has shaped me to what I have become today. My friends and family are the rocks in my life and they are the most important things to me, and I know that I would have never gotten this far in life without their support and guidance throughout everything.
