Death. To people it means many different things. Some people may not think anything of it, until it strikes close to them. I know before I had my father pass away, I never thought once about it. When I first heard of my dad dying, it made me sad. I was ten or eleven, not old enough yet to understand, why someone would want to take their own life. I was crushed when it happened. It was like a part of me was missing, like someone had ripped my heart out and laid a direct attack on me. When I learned he had committed suicide it made me very angry. I kept thinking how could someone do that and hurt his whole family. Especially my brothers and I. I kept thinking how could someone be thinking for…show more content…
I didn’t want to think about it; I wanted it to be over with. The question that hurt the most was when everyone asked me how did he die. I mean honestly what kind of question is that. When the funeral was over and he was laid to rest, I had a feeling I can’t even describe. It was almost an empty feeling. I knew I had lost someone that could never be replaced. I wouldn’t want to wish death upon anyone’s family. No matter who may come into your life can never replace your parents. It’s just not the same, and I do think that many people would agree with me. I really do hate to say this, but since my father did pass away, my life has greatly gotten better. My step dad Steve has been so nice and rad with him I’ve gotten things and did things, that I would have never did before, and I am grateful for that and it makes me happy to have someone like him. Last of all, after all these years or wondering why, why did it have to happen? I’ve finally come to understand. It wasn’t because he disliked us, or because I had did something wrong, like I had thought. Sometimes when life gets hard, you can take the easy way out, which my father chose to do. It isn’t right, but it happens. Maybe he was thinking of my life, and my brothers. Maybe he thought he could make it better, I really don’t know, and I may never know. I can’t change the past, and if I could I really am not
Changes in Life Essay

In my life, I have been exposed to a challenge called change. Change can occur in many different ways and is dealt with in many different ways. I have come to the awareness that change can be the deepest of all things. I always thought that change occurred when you moved to a state or when you lost someone real close to you. Those are a challenge to change, yes, but change doesn’t have to occur over a climactic incident. It can just appear overnight when your brain winds up when it’s time to do something different. Even with friends that you used to have and know that move on. For example, most of my friends from elementary school, I don’t even talk to them anymore. For obvious reasons, people will turn down the changes in life.…show more content…
It’s depressing how this works, but it’s probably the most reason why people change. It’s much like peer pressure which usually ends up in the wrong direction. For example, I was almost peer pressured to consume alcohol and to do smoking. Fortunately, for me, I escaped that change and didn’t experience it. The people we adore love us so much that they want us to remain the way we are forever. Like how my mother always wanted me to stay the same little child, but I grew up. Not all people can stay the same for a long time. If the people we love and adore would just accept the change and go with it, they would understand where the change was coming from. It can be shaky to try to stop change and fight against it, especially if the person wants to change a lot. When I was ready for high school, I was expected to change almost everything in my life. The reason that somebody wants to change is usually not their choice, but a feeling that the person feels inside their head. Maybe the change isn’t the best change, but if you dig deeper, the person that you adore isn’t really changing. They are just trying to find themselves and the one thing they need the most is the support of the people who they care about the most. When I was attending college, I was expecting a lot of changing to take place. With the support of my family and friends, it was no big deal for me.
When the people they care about the most, detach their change as
