In order to have a real relationship with some, be it a friend or partner, you have to be able to talk about your emotions. It brings people together and helps them understand each other. People who never speak their minds are always going to be misunderstood and feel more alone than people who can confide in the people around them. 3. I am very lucky that I love to read. Reading had helped me in many ways, including expanding my vocabulary and giving me something to do during long waits at the airport. I have loved to read since I was very young and I think I have my parents to thank. They read to me since before I was even born, as an infant, and into childhood.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
