As a whole, while the story was very depressing at times, it still has an underlying tone of family ideals, as the relationship between the mother and daughter still remained despite the arguments they had. In my opinion, I think the author’s message that she wished to convey was that despite any event that may occur, family members will always be there support you. This is shown in how, despite Jing Mei’s failures at becoming a prodigy, her mother still supported her and did not give up hope on helping her daughter becoming a successful person. As such, it strengthens the idea that “family will always be there for you”, no matter what hardships come their way. In addition, it helped to add a sense of togetherness in the short story, as it inadvertently revealed how much Jing’s mother actually loved her, despite her tough exterior.
A claim that substantiates the author’s basic premise is that, ““…the ultimate reason why a man would not just” walk out the door” was the taint of homosexuality…the ultimate escapism” (Ehrenreich, p. 103). Not wanting to be socially stigmatized as being homosexual, men who have no desire to marry or get a job, are in a sense forced to, in order to maintain their self-respect in society. This fear of being labeled as homosexual plays an essential role in influencing men to take up the role of being husbands and breadwinners. Additionally, the author contributes to our understanding of this phenomenon by providing key examples and quotes which help us understand the pressures faced by men. The author makes it clear that there is not really a way for men to shrug their responsibilities of being the breadwinner in a marriage and to still retain their status of being masculine, or their manhood.
Sexual possessiveness is well documented and appears to be close to universal (e.g., Reiss, 1986b). It seems safe to say that both men and women want their mates to be faithful to them. Men may have used certain methods to ensure ﬁdelity (such as harems and chastity belts) that women were unable to use, but this does not mean that wives are indifferent to husbandly inﬁdelity. If anything, wives appear to be more sexually possessive than husbands (Blumstein & Schwartz, 1983). Still, crucially, the male efforts to ensure ﬁdelity do not seem to have extended to attempting to stiﬂe female sexuality.
How did I handle it? How would I handle it in the future? You may never come across the exact situation they passed through, but if you put yourself in their shoes and feel how they felt so that you can understand their thinking. That thinking is exactly what you need. Take their advice personal.
Loving your partner simply means “giving all you have to give”, and not “giving what he or she deserves”. Many relationships fail because of a win-win perspective love. Hey, it is not a business stall that you have to buy something with a price. Love is priceless. Treat your partner with humility.
Everyone who truly commits himself to the gospel finds his life expanding and his appreciation growing for all good things. His acknowledgment of God and his wondrous creations intensifies...Brothers and sisters, a committed person makes goodness look attractive. He builds an inner confidence as he learns light and truth and then practices it”(Elder James M. Paramore, A Personal Commitment). I plan to apply integrity but being truthful in all I do. No more justifying my wrongs or others, just being honest with myself and others but with the love of the Lord.
This shows how true love does not necessarily have to come from a romantic relationship between men and women, but could also be in the form of familial love. I think this message is very important to teach children that they already have true love from their parents or guardian and they do not have to seek for it. Next, another change of plot is made through the addition of Maleficent’s brief childhood love with Stefan. This change of plot helps the audience to feel sympathy for Maleficent and see her as a strong woman who tries to defend herself from King Stefan’s evil doings. Although she put her curse on Princess Aurora for revenge, she wants to redeem herself by trying to revoke the curse when Aurora is 16 years old.
In Shakespeare’s King Lear, Cordelia, the youngest and favorite daughter of the king showed a very soft personality. Her honest answer to her father means that she is of pure heart and soul. She has no intention of getting the biggest part of the kingdom. She values family and love over earthly properties such as land and wealth. Unlike her two sisters, she respects her father’s decision and obeys every command that her father gives.
Because Gamification predominately involves games or competition, it can lead to employees or potential employees not taking their jobs or assessments seriously, and therefore going from a professional culture, to a game and play culture (Van Roy. R., & Zaman. B., 2015). Furthermore, one of the main causes of this change in culture is due to ‘trial and error,’ (Buckley. P., & Doyle.
All of Precious’s fantasies inevitably evoke her need to feel accepted and loved by her parents and the society regardless if her values are different (Rogers, 1959). Moreover, Precious’ fantasies show that she should not need to fulfil any requirements to gain some sort of self-worth but rather she is loved for who she is. Thus, she dreams her actualising tendency is reached through her fantasy world instead of her real
