I am he type of person that finds happiness through the happiness of others. There have been three events between us which have affected the way we see each other but more importantly how I changed due to these. I joined the local church in my old city for her and as well as involve myself in church events which have caused me to change plans and have caused me to live somewhere else. I had to encounter a conflict between her and my dad which is partly the cause that my dad decided to move. The last conflict was between me and my best friend which Involved her interfering with my own personal problems.
She has been a problem In my life which changed who I am. I have been playing guitar since seventh grade and is very important to me as it is a great passion that I love. Learning the guitar caused a change in events because it is what got me into the church choir. In my freshman year of high school I was invited to participate in her church choir which was a turning point In my life. Some personal Information about me which caused this drama In my life Is that I am not religious. I do not believe In a god which In Itself conflicts with the fact that I was joining a religious choir.
I never intended to join to engage in the religion itself but to satisfy our friendship. In the course of three years I was able to hide the fact that I’m not religious but in turn I was afraid of my secret getting out. In my senior year of high school my dad who formerly knew about my religious view told her. This was the first event which cause social and religious conflict in my life. I had never been so ashamed and this caused me to go In a state of social depression. AAAS away from all of my friends for weeks. I had never been the same since.
This event In my fife case me to be socially unstable because of the fear of letting someone down. Aside from the fact that I wouldn’t see any of my friends, my dad decided to do something about this. My best friends mother decided to find another guitarist to play for the choir. This only infuriated my dad because of all the time he had spent supporting me In the church. He got in a huge argument with her and then my mother got Involved. My dad had already lost Interest In my mom years prior to these events and this only caused my worst dilemma to date. My dad decided to move cities which changed my life completely.
My dad kicked my mom out of the house. I was forced to start a new life and restart some of my high school classes. This socially affected me because of the new life I had to start. I started to become a bit more social but didn’t change the fact that I lost most of my old friends. The itself. I became stressed out because of this event and I was worried about my academics. A month into my summer vacation I began to talk with my old friend. I started to notice a period of grace between my best friend and l. We started to socialized more during that month until I decided to visit them.
It was nearly a year since I last saw them. We now live hours apart so it is inconvenient to visit each other. My life had a turning point with no return. This affected my social life up to this point. Being in this University is helping my social status. I am now making new friends and have learned not to get my dad involved with my friends. I don’t think I could ever have my childhood back or ever be convinced into Joining another religion. These events traumatized me and my confidence. In my situation religion and my social life mixed. I now see my mother once a week.
