Opening My Eyes
My high school years were some of the most influential years of
my life. From the parties to the alcohol, I thought I had it all made;
However, I was wrong. All I needed was the right person to make me see
things in a different perspective. That is when I met my future fiance
Jeff. He has helped influence my life in a variety of beneficial ways.
First, when I sit back and think about certain aspects of my
teenage years, I realize exactly how uninformed I was. Jeff helped me to
have different outlooks on my life. I thought everything was so simple in
life. I thought that it was all right to do whatever I wanted no matter what
anyone else said. He made me understand that simple things do matter.
For example, I thought that coming home early on weekends was
ridiculous, and that I should have been able to stay out all night if I
wanted to. I was not worried then about what my mother thought. Jeff
changed that. He got me into the habit of getting home early. With
