David Foster Wallace argues that reality can be mundane. However, if people focus on what others are going through, then they can learn to empathize and understand humanity better. A behavior is a snap shot of how that person is acting in that moment. There are lots of moments where behaviors may not accurately describe someone. If people are constantly operating unconsciously and only ever taking what they see face value then they are not relating or understanding others; even more what they are thinking about other’s is stereotypical and possibly hurtful.
Without a good understanding of Active Support, staff can often provide too little, or too much assistance for people to participate in activities. There can be a tendency to provide less assistance to people who are less able and more assistance to people who are more able, instead of the other way around. It is important in active support to consider individual strengths and work on these, giving people the chance to try things before doing it for them. Active Support builds on the skills people already have. It ensures they have the opportunity to do things they already have the skills to do, or it can extend the range of available activities to include more complex and interesting
As Sigmund Freud once said, “the only person with whom you have to compare yourself is you in the past. ” In this essay, I will qualify the claim that Janie, the protagonist from Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God, is a powerful role model for young readers because she pursues her own happiness despite obstacles. Janie does pursue her own happiness through her relationship with Joe Starks and Tea cake, even though they both come to a crashing end. The obstacles she has to overcome however, are created by herself. Janie creates her own adversity, and is then forced to overcome it to achieve what she desires.
This is achieved through adding a sense of realism as to how happiness should be experienced. Thus, it provides tangible means for people to grasp an abstract concept such as happiness. As a result, this enables her to persuade readers to take up her advice. For example, she draws links between the need to experience happiness with others through studies and real-life evidence regarding the lack of the time spent with others e.g., only 24 hours a year spent socialising (Whippman, 2017). This shows us the real-life implication of our actions in search of isolated happiness which has caused an unintended outcome on us as we are supposed to share joyous moments together.
Most of the book which stands out to me, is the author’s encouragement to her readers, that anyone can change their mindset at any time, age, or state of mind in their life. It may be very difficult for some people, but it can be done and it is well worth it. Carol Dweck provokes readers to pursue reading the rest of her book when she states, “Much of what you think of as your personality actually grows out of this “mindset.” Much of what may be preventing you from fulfilling your potential grows out of it” (xi). This quote makes readers want to continue reading because it not only makes the reader wonder, it makes them want to find out what the rest of the book is about. My initial thought of this sentence was
Aren and Eva have developed an unusual relationship between their characters that I never saw coming. Clara is as radiant and lovely as ever, but now she is slowly giving her heart to Jesse. He is permitting her healing love to permeate his soul and change him from within (another redemption story in the works). As he accepts her love, she accepts his love in return while setting appropriate boundaries and standards concerning how he will treat her. She is not going to automatically become "his girl."
¬¬¬¬¬The Wars Essay The concept of resilience is often described as being able to recover from difficult experiences or pasts, where one’s resilience could be impacted by drastic changes that occur in their lives. It is something that guides one’s decisions and often defines their morals and what individuals perceive to be right or wrong; depending on the situation they are encountering. Resilience is highly dependent on the thought of empathy, where the resilience of people who have experienced empathy will be different from others who haven’t. How individuals deal with these differences determines one’s level of empathy and also impacts their resilience. Timothy Findley explores an individual’s struggle to keep a sense of resilience while
In her eyes, this is a difficult impediment in her path, but it is necessary for her to conquer it to be free of her guilt and fear. In real life, cases may not always be as severe as this one, but there are many instances where someone has to either succumb to a terror of theirs and live restricted by it, or they could overcome it and live a happier, self-oriented life. This person could also do things they had never imagined before, because their fear or drawback had been in their way. When one overcomes obstacles in one’s

Events in people’s lives can have a myriad of effects on them. A person can become lost, transform into a better person, or ignore the events altogether. The choice of how to react often matters more than the event itself. The occurrence can also change the people’s views on life and cause them to have a different destiny.
