Rivalry and Its Positive Impact on Personal Growth Rivalry in all of its forms contributes to personal growth, even in extreme cases where the opposing party is debilitated or annihilated, where the consequences force the remaining party to overcome this loss and continue to adapt to the situation.

In “The Awakening of Sunshine Girl” by Paige McKenzie, character’s qualities contribute to showing that you can learn from your mistakes by showing how determined she was. The text states, “I can tell he's a more than a little determined, i must get it from him...”, this shows that she knows she's determined.

This demonstrates that she was determined and that overall helped her accomplish her main goals in the book.

Another example of a self-serving belief is when Lefou sings about Gatson's wonderful traits as a way to cheer him up after being rejected by Belle for being "simple-minded.” Quickly, Gatson becomes overconfident in his abilities, reverting back to his initial self. Kruger & Dunning's research with students which is described in the textbook concludes that "those who are least competent are most overconfident about their abilities.” Therefore, Gatson skill in hunting and fighting are over-exaggerated to inflate his positive self concept. "People's overconfidence is particularly strong when they're given feedback that confirms their original views” (Law connections).

Before the end of the book, Huck now understands regardless of how bad somebody is their life is still of worth.

On the other side of the argument, Marche criticizes Slaughter’s dialogue concerning men in her article. Rather, he addresses the representation of men written in articles composed by women in general.

Marche states that “men are far more anonymous-implacable opponents of progress in the upper echelons, helpless
From Gene’s view of their friendship together it seems a little one-sided with Finney’s friendship being conditional to her. Finney is a great friend who is loyal and trusting. Finney pushes Gene into doing things that she may not normally do like cutting class.

She writes that publicity means celebrities “have the easiest time influencing teens because they are so vulnerable”. I am of the opinion that celebrities can influence positively as they are in the public eye, for example when a celebrity represents a charity, showing kindness and empathy. There are many beneficial role models in the media stated in “Why do teenagers need role models?” by Robert Vaux. He highlights historical figures such as “Gandhi or Martin Luther King”.

His dialogue is always short awkward responses which initially positions the viewer towards Lars’ introversion. This movie allows an insider into his life and the lives of the people around him. It not only shows the struggles; it shows the positives and happy side of the illness as well as the satisfied ending a struggle can have. Having these themes exposed to teenagers is beneficial in the way that they can become more aware of these scenarios and to, optimistically, be open to learning about these confronting themes.
