Some of the things in my life that I think are influencing my current self-picture would have to be: me being in school, it’s making feel more intelligent and giving me more education, my daughter having Ulcerative Colitis is developing my personality, intelligence, my social, and my talents as a mother, also all the hardships I’ve been facing from life have made my perspective way out and beyond what I would consider normal for myself. I have been through a lot and I have come a long way, I’ve always been told how smart I am and that I can do anything my heart sets out. My personality has always been caring, and honest, I am a good listener and friend, I’ve done what I could do for people around me even if I could barely do for myself. My social skills have always been great throughout my childhood years I’ve always been popular, people always take a likening to me, and always ask for my advice or they just open up not even knowing who I am, I’ve been told that I have that open heart on my sleeve. My talents have always been poetry, and drawing, and dancing, the three most things I really do enjoy and adore they have helped me out of some bad times and also good times, physically I do what I cannot so much as when I was younger but I still try to be very active, I do have a 14 year old I need to keep up with, and by all means I try to keep her active so she can maintain health and physical happiness. With all this said my current self-picture is not bad of myself I am happy where I am at and I believe things can only get better from here on out.
