One day when I was coming home from school I heard my father say to my mother, "If you do not play soccer, then you are not worth it!" I was raised by a strict soccer family who based your value and worth on being interested in soccer. I stopped having an interest in soccer after celebrating my 13th birthday because I found it really competitive and too much pressure was put on me by my family to push myself to do better. I did not enjoy pressured competition, it caused me anxiety attacks. When my dad said those hurtful ten words, I could feel my world crashing down and it made me a very depressed person. It made me feel hopeless, desperate, and most importantly worthless because my family did not think I was a valuable person. My mentality was, " If my family thought I was a worthless person, who would think I was a valuable person?" Soon after that depressing moment in my life, I seeked to get help and advice from a really close friend and she said, " You should not listen to negative people because that is making you really depressed, you should focus on yourself and positivity around the world." Those words of wisdom impacted my life in a positive way because it made me realize that I could achieve my goals by motivating myself to do better and not giving up on what truly matters. My world has shaped my dreams and aspirations in a positive way because I developed a greater knowledge in my education and I gained a deeper interest in film production and film studies.
