    • What Doesn’t Kill You MakesYou Stronger “Sometimes bad things have to happen before good things can.” —Becca Fitzpatrick Ali Kloska WRD 110
    • Why Do Bad Things Have toHappen? I went through a really long stage of low self- esteem and just overall awkwardness Switching high schools from a school I knew everyone to one I knew no one. Lost a lot of people in a 4 year period (friend’s dad, my cousin, my grandpa, and a school-mate)
    • … They Make Us Who We Are Senior Christian Awakening Retreat ◦ Listened to a witness talk about how the lows in our lives help to make who we are today. I would be nowhere near who I am today without everything I went through ◦ Being positive about as much as I can (you never know when it could all end) ◦ Don’t sweat the small stuff! It isn’t worth the time. ◦ My high school gave me the ability to be who I wanted to be, and improved my confidence
    • The First Time I Discussed MyShift At my AMAZING Christian Awakening Retreat with my small group ◦ Discussed it at the end of the weekend after hearing everyone’s life-changing stories• Small group was very encouraging and agreed with my opinion that bad things happen to make us stronger people  They realized it in their own lives as well  Became a long discussion topic
    • Spreading What I Had Learned:Retreat Letters Retreat letters to people I hadn’t talked to in a while ◦ I tried to compare what I had been through to some of the things they had been through, and used examples from my retreat
    • Peer’s Response: RetreatLetters A few people were receptive and came back from retreat and wanted to talk to me more about what I had written Some still haven’t said anything, I like to think I helped them get through something they were going through (maybe?)
    • Spreading What I Had Learned:When someone is going througha hard time Telling people everything is going to work out in the end Don’t sweat the small stuff.
    • Peer’s Response: Whensomeone is going through a hardtime Most of the people I try to express this to do not want to hear it while they are going through whatever their problem is ◦ They occasionally come to the realization this is true  …and they occasionally do not
    • Spreading What I Had Learned:Through my actions I really do try to take everyday as if it were my last, no regrets. When I get stressed about something, I usually have an easy time realizing that it isn’t as big of a deal as I originally thought. HAKUNA MATATA
    • Peer’s Response: My actions Several friends have told me to tell my experiences to other people, and have suggested I speak at retreats I’ve been told multiple times that I am too positive ◦ I take this as a compliment… obviously
    • My Response To My PositionShift I believe that with some practice, I can help other people realize that although life seems really bad, they are going to get through it and become a stronger, better person because of what they have gone through I think my techniques could use a little work ◦ I need to be more understanding that people are not going to agree with me the majority of the time
    • In Closing… Everything really is going to work out in the end. Period. ◦ No matter how long it seems to be taking, or how bad the situation is. YOU WILL GET THROUGH IT!
