Introduce Yourself: My name is Jamirian McCline. I am an 18 year old female from Mississippi. I just started my first year of college about a week ago.
Thoughts On People In The World?: People in the world are essentially good. All bad habits are taught to them, nobody is born racist or a murderer. Most people who do bad things become the way they are because of their environment or from a lack of attention. Some people didn’t get the help they needed as a child. There are a few people in the world who do bad things just because they can but most of them are only following actions they’ve seen. Everyone is born good.
What are your inspirations & goals?: I want to one day have my own psychology practice and be an English teacher at some point in my life. I love to help people.
How would you impact the world?: I could save lives. I could be someone’s best friend when they don’t have one. I could just be there for people to talk to when they need it. I could help people see the purpose in their lives and want to live.
Struggles In Life? : I started struggling with depression when I first got in middle school. I began self-harming in the seventh grade. All throughout my lifetime, there have been suicide attempts and so many points where I’ve almost died from them. My parents weren’t together and they didn’t get along until one of us got in trouble. But soon after, they would be back against each other. That was definitely hard to deal with. I was a sensitive kid so I needed a lot more emotional support than I was given and my family didn’t know how to give it. I eventually learned how to deal with it myself.
How do you feel about yourself? Any changes you would make? : I am getting to a point where I love myself. I have bad days, but they are beginning to not happen as often as they used to. I wish I wasn’t so sensitive and naive. I fall for things so often and end up hurt or sometimes any small comment can ruin my entire day. I’m working on changing that.
What does love mean to you?: Love is being there for someone when they need you, even if it is at 4 AM. Love is sharing your last pack of noodles with someone who doesn’t have anything to eat either. Love is paying attention to a story about work when you don’t even know the people who work there. Love is being whatever someone needs when they need it.
