Worldview Essay
My worldview is my set of assumptions and beliefs, which helps me determine right from wrong, and helps me define how the world works. I understand a very few things in this world, yet here are two facts that I have come to accept after hard-earned personal experience: I was heavily influenced as a child by my family’s worldview and my experiences in the world forced me to develop my own worldview.
My worldview has been dramatically impacted by the sum of my experiences and has shaped all my beliefs. I have many and varied life experiences, including multiple jobs, I have interacted with thousands of people ...view middle of the document...

I also believe in love, that I am no good at practicing this but God has shown me His most precious gift in this world (His other great gift to mankind is salvation, yet I believe that is revealed after our bodies die on this plane).

I am made in His image, not of it (thus I am human and not perfect, otherwise I would be a clone of God and I know not perfection). Through a deep spiritual experience, I was able to change my whole attitude towards life, my fellows, and God’s universe. (Anonymous, 2001, p 25) For the previous twenty years I drank alcoholically and these years and experiences shaped my worldview more than any other experiences in my life. I cheated, I stole, I fought, and I drank. I did, said, and became everything I swore growing up with an alcoholic father and grandparents that I would never say, do, or become. So there I was,...
