What is Important to Me?

My family and friends are most important to me. Because I am in college, I am not able to see my family as much as I would like. My friends have become a second family to me. I am a very shy person, and it takes much effort to meet new people; this is one of the reasons why my friends are so important to me. They allow me to lower my guard and be more social. I am able to try new things like improvisational comedy around them. These relationships are very important to me. Because of them, I am able to discover talents that I did not know I had. I can talk to my friends about my problems, and they can offer advice and constructive criticism. Through interaction with them, I am becoming a better person by learning to open up to people more.
