What is Important

What is Important

To me, the most important thing is the people around me, especially my family.  They are the people who get through the bad times with you and push you to be a better person.  Sometimes I fight with my Mom or my sister and I feel really frustrated and annoyed that they don't understand my perspective but I know that none of that really matters because without them I'd be miserable.  The same goes for my dad; I'm really grateful for the relationship that I have with him.  He has always played an important role in my life and I feel so lucky that I have an amazing relationship with him when so many of my friends don't really talk to their fathers. 

 

Then there are my friends.  I have an amazing circle of friends.  We have such good times, lots of laughing together which I think is so important.  Laughing always makes me feel happy.  We have a lot of good times, but we get each other through the bad times too, like bad break ups or deaths of family members or illnesses; even just the little things like a bad day because of a test grade or spillt coffee or something. 

 

Those are the two things I think to be the most important.  There are lots of other important things too, such as community and education and empathy and personal values. But to me, none of the other important things matter without your friends and family by your side, who help push you to want better thigngs for yourself and others.
