My Challenges 2 My Challenges Although we face many challenging issues in our lives, how we deal with them can help shape our lives in a negative or positive way. I’d like to share with you some of the challenges I have experienced and they have helped to create the person I am today. I will use the adult development theories that I’ve learned in the class to examine these challenges. I would also like to present to you some of my aspirations for the future. My parents met in high school and though I have never asked I believe I was an accident due to the fact that they were both seventeen years old when I was born. To be honest I’m not even sure if they were married when I came into this world. My only memory of my parents is of them fighting however they must gotten along at some point because they had another child after me, my brother Cory. My parents were divorced when I was five and my brother was one. I went to live with my father who was living his parents and my brother went to live with my mother. My earliest memories are of my Uncle Jason. I followed him around like a puppy, wherever my Uncle went, I went. The only memory I have of my father at the time was watching him play basketball. Then one day my mother picked me up from school and we flew to the island of Oahu where she was living at the time. That would be the last time I saw my dad for about 7 years. The one thing I regret the most is that I never saw my grandmother again until 18 years later. My grandmother was an everyday participant in my life, which our text explains as an involved relationship (Boyd & Bee, 2006, p.149), so it was no wonder she was devastated when I left. She kept a dresser full of my clothes for quite a few years hoping she’d see me again.
