I'm not sure I've ever been so shocked

K, so why is it that the people who are supposed to love us no matter what, can be so hurtful? Oh my family... why can't we all just get along? Here are some things I think families should give unconditionally:

  • Love - imagine that

  • Understanding - not everyone can be their best 24/7

  • Respect - we all have our free agency and we should respect each other's opinions and choices

  • Space - people want to spend time with their own families first and foremost (I could spend every second with Jason and not think a thing about anyone else) and shouldn't be chastized for not wanting to entertain 24/7

I think sometimes people are just looking for ways to entertain themselves by putting others down and that is so sad in families. I have been wronged so many times by my family, but I love them and HATE being upset with them. I understand that no one's perfect but there's a difference between venting and trash talk.

I couldn't find a pic of Jason's family on my computer so I'll just settle for these!

Throughout my late adolescense and adulthood, I have had many positions (professionally and volunteer basis) that have helped me develop skills necessary to serve as a liaison to the community on behalf of a professional organization. I have spent many years in various organizations which have helped me grow skills such as public speaking, note taking, and scheduling. I am proficient in organization and mediation – always keeping the mindset of finding middle ground and while meeting the needs of those involved. I excel in the area of community outreach and thrive in situations where I am given reign to be creative and managerial. I am committed to achieving the best outcome and feel I have many fantastic qualities to contribute to any organization.
