They are so busy worrying about protecting themselves that they even forget about the others. People, especially in Maycomb County, avoid identifying themselves in the other person. However, they are willing to take part in a bigger group in order to not identify themselves within the other person not as an individual, but as a group. Every single person is able to make “moral choices.” Lastly, I conclude by saying that by choosing what seems to be the right choice, might be harder for the ones who lack empathy, but as Baron-Cohen says, “the choice still
Some respondents stated that they were afraid of isolation and they did not want to be left alone, which catapulted their conformity to their peers. Peer pressure had its good and bad sides. The good side being it allowed the person to go out of his/her comfort zone and try new things. This led to experiences from which an individual can learn from, regardless if it was happy or sad. Also, peer pressure sometimes help people to recognize whom they really were without the stigma of other people defining them.
On the other hand, in public view, it feels soothing to give responsibility to one mind. People mostly do not stand for taking responsibilities in serious times. Also, opponents of autocratic leadership claim that everyone has right to share ideas. They argue that autocracy obstructs to birm of better ideas and further, the ones who disagree with their leader gets pushed out. However, those arguments are mostly irrational.
Most of us don’t know how to accept defeat, we don’t know how to handle pressure. Others do suicide, hurting themselves, rebellion etc. By doing that we are as good as the losers. Just because we lose, doesn’t mean we 're sore loser. But it only indicates that we are only human too.
A true friend is hard to find, but once you find one, you don’t need to let go of him/her. Many people haven’t found that true friend, but instead, have surrounded themselves with toxic friends. A true friend should never bring you down, they should only lift you up, and help you become a better version of yourself. Sometimes, it’s better to have a couple real friends, rather than many fake ones. When you put yourself around fake people, that attitude rubs off on you, causing you to become false or rude.
Constantly being happy is not healthy and can be very dangerous. Too much happiness can also make many people less flexible when it is time to face new life challenges. Experiencing negative emotions is just as important as experiencing joy and happiness. Not experiencing emotions such as sadness, fear, and anger show that a person is not engaged in their life and these emotions push them to succeed and do better in life. Negativity helps people achieve more in
On the other hand, if someone needs help and no one is near, people are more likely to get involved and aid that person because of enlightened self-interest. Some citizens might help because they feel empathy for that person in need or because they believe that the other person’s welfare is its own responsibility. Marlene tells us, “Mendocinians are not sufficiently involved with poverty. They know that there are some organizations that help these people, but they do not know what these organizations are called or where they gather. Most citizens only know the bigger organizations such as ‘Cáritas’.” Probably this “Bystander effect” can explain why people avoid getting
If you know someone who is a little anomaly, that does not mean that you have to be biased against them. Bullying is a big part of a autistic person’s life, speaking from experience, it impacts their lives completely. Sometimes the smallest thing that you would consider nice could mollify them and make their day. The next time you see someone struggling or being bullied, stand up for them, because they could have something wrong with them that makes them unable to do it for themselves, but you
A wise man once said: “ you can choose your words, but you cannot choose the effect that they can have on people”. It’s funny how some people might think that they are asking very standard and normal questions, but the very specific questions that they ask may be a bit annoying to others because they simply point out the obvious, or they may even be offensive sometimes. Even though people don’t do that on purpose, they should take a minute to think what they say through, because these unintentionally silly questions could make others feel insecure or odd which, eventually, hurts their feelings. So when I encounter one of these weird questions, I always have two possible ways to reply: the first is just an awkward smile, and the second is a
I try my best to leave that habit. In order to improve these practices, I appreciate my own effort. It may sound silly, but the self-esteem in this aspect plays a powerful role. This negative aspect of me also affects classmates, as I do not have much patience. Even though I enjoy helping people with their personal obstacles, I tend to frustrate even more when somebody is struggling and do not comprehend instructions easily.
