Defining who we are
For a student, academics is the main measurement of success or accomplishment. For my part, that is not exactly the case. I belong to the pilot section where they put the brightest students of my batch. My teachers tell me that they admire me a lot because they think that I’m one of the girls who belong to a family of the higher social class -- That’s a big no. There’s a story behind me.
I’ve been through a lot of family problems. I come from a broken family. My parents are separated and my mom has a psychological problem. Thankfully my dad still helps us out. Both my dad and I help hand in hand to remain strong despite of my mom’s situation. My father is the only one who works to provide for us. Because of that, I learned to stand up for myself and handle problems on my own even such an early age.
Whenever I have problems and I can see that my other friends have their mother to help them, I envy them a lot. Despite that, I always say to myself, it’s just part of God’s plan for me. That helped me to define who I am as a person. I learned to be stronger every problem I face. Now that I’m already a graduating student I want to take every moment special.
I find so much happiness with the simple fact that I actually have the strength to realize what is best for me, no matter how sad it is. Life is when you see something and it inspires you. It makes you feel to make a difference in the world, place your mark, be remembered for all your accomplishments, and not for your failures. In whatever path I choose, I know I will have difficulties, yet I won’t give up. I’m determined to make it big. I can succeed. I must find those moments that inspire me and build a dream out of that.
I am conditioned to think that our lives revolve around great moments, but great moments often catch us unaware-beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one. Enjoy it and find out the truth about who I am.
