1.What does it mean to you to be a good friend?
A good friend is someone that supports you in doing what is right even if it means leaving you dissatisfied. A good friend listens to you, understands you and is there for you when no one else can be. It is someone you feel most comfortable around and someone you can depend on for anything. A good friend shows love, loyalty, honesty and accepts you for who you are.
2.When can you tell you are under stress?
When I am under stress, I become overwhelmed, and my muscles become tense. Even though stress may have negative effects on my body, it is the pressure that comes with the stress that enables me to get things done and to perform to the best of my ability. One valuable lesson that I have learnt is not to worry about things that I cannot control.
3.How do you handle difficult situations?
When encountering any difficult situation, the first thing I do is calm myself down, so that I am able to view things from a clearer perspective and if I am unable to solve the problem myself or improvise, I ask for help or advice from someone who has been in a similar situation.
4.How do you describe dignity?
For me dignity means appearing or behaving in such a way that portrays worth and self-respect as well as showing respect towards others.
