The values that I believe in play a very important role in my life. These important values have been greatly influenced by my family. My values include family, education, religion, and freedom. The beliefs I have are important because they shape the way I live my life in a way that I think is desirable to me and those around me. I believe that to value something is to assign love and importance to it.Family.
I have had the fortune of being raised in a strong family background. I have two loving parents that have always supported me and taught me life's lessons while also letting me develop my own morals and values by their example. Their love for me has shown me great examples of how to be kind and loving toward others. My family has also placed me in a great environment, surrounded by people who care and are very loving. I don't know where I would be without the support of my family. I feel a lot of American teenagers miss out on that nowadays. So many teens are lost without family guidance. I feel very lucky to be very close to my own family. It is where I get a lot of my source of strength and confidence. They have taught all of the essential values that will aid me in making the right decisions down the road. And even if I make mistakes and need advice, I know that my parents will always welcome me with open arms. This is why being part of a family is being able to show unconditional love. You should support your family members in the good, the bad and the thick and thin times. I feel that through life you may meet new friends but unlike family there is no guarantee that they will be there for the rest of your life. There is a fine line between showing love and being authoritative and trying to force values into your kids. I plan on using my personal values and morals to teach my children. I can not make them believe they have abilities unless I try my hardest to be the best that I can be and show them by example.
