My Past 3 Ten years ago I had set forth my goals. I was a freshman in college and had no worries. Who would have known what was in stored for me? Now it’s 2011 and I have yet to have accomplished my goal that started that September. In life we go through experiences that shape us into who we become. We as individuals learn from these experiences from our childhood to our adulthood. In this paper you will read about my personal, educational and professional experiences as well as my future goals. I will discuss things from my early childhood to my present stage in life. I will analyze my experiences and goals by using the theories on adult development that we have learned from our class discussions. “Family development theory focuses on changes over time in family structure, roles of family members, developmental tasks, stressors and crises, and adaptive and maladaptive coping mechanisms” (Eriksonian Developmental Stages , 2004). I agree with this quote because our roles change as we grow. At first we are the children with no worries and then we grow to the adult that has all the worries in the world. My family as child consisted of my mother and my grandmother. Many say I was raised by both because we lived with my grandmother. At the time my mom had a wonderful job that allowed her to provide for us. She would soon lose her job because of downsizing. She applied for public assistance so we could be able to eat and began her job search. My father is what people in today’s society call an absent father.
