In the past it seemed like fitting in was the most important thing in the world I was embarrassed if my friends didnt believe the same things as me and I didnt want to be thought of as different It was hard to stand firm in my beliefs when so many people around me were criticizing them My cousin Christy has always been a role model for me Shes 10 years older than I am but when I was young I couldnt wait for her visits to Arizona Even though I have two older brothers closer to her age Christy would always take time to braid my hair or color pictures with me Once when I was only 3 years old I was wrapped up very tightly with my arms in a towel and my dog pushed me into the pool and Christy was the one to jump in and get me out Shes the most humble person I know even to this day she wont accept the fact that she did in fact save me that day in the poolChristy was raised in a family where most of the members smoked drank and were nonreligious Christy turned out quite the opposite Shes very accepting of people the way they are but she knows what she believes and she wont let people take that away from her She doesnt seem to worry about people judging her for who she is From watching Christys behavior Ive realized that I too should be steadfast in my beliefs Ive learned from her that I can stand firm in what I believe without shunning the people that dont believe something different She never seems quite happy enough with herself but she will always stand firm in her faith and morals Ive never seen Christy get angry with anybody Even when her hairstylist showed up 5 hours late on her wedding day with no excuse Christy managed to stay calm
