Not everyone struggles with growing up, some people look forward to adulthood but they also are the same people who have already found their purpose and have a plan for their future. Other people on the other hand, struggle finding their purpose and see the adult world. as Holden would say, “Phony.” They don’t want to become another phony or they just can’t seem to find their purpose in this phony world. Some people don’t want things to change but it does and it’s something they don’t know how to deal with. Change is something that we fear because is out of our control and when things are out of control it worries us.
“Don 't make a permanent decision for your temporary emotion”. This quote speaks volumes when analyzing one’s daily activities and how decision making is an influential piece to those activities. Human beings are obligated to make decisions every day--some that are made impulsively--but they do not at all reflect one’s actual character. Many people often often predetermine one’s character/morality based off of an incautious decision, but remain oblivious to the reasoning behind the choice that was made. Although one’s choices can be either detrimental or benign to their lives, they have no correlation with their true disposition.
The changing in technologies and social environment makes the society change faster than before. This situation had created an ambiguity for those who could not cope with it, in fact nobody could. When the standards that built our society started to vanish, people began to misinterpret the meaning of right and wrong based on their own personal interest. Moral compass is one of the terms that people could use to make sure that they always stay on the right path facing this situation. However, developing a moral compass is never an easy task to do, in fact a moral compass is built through a long and demanding journey of life.
The added mental stress of the choices on every level of their life. The mental inability to be happy with their choice or to choose whatever. This makes me think, can someone really ever make the perfect choice. The right selection varies from person to person, so even if you’re happy with your choice, a friend could find something wrong with it. This paper made me feel sorry to the people that are slaves to their choices.
Americans tend to be "a restless, a dissatisfied, a searching people," because they cannot find satisfaction in their lives. “ We find our time searching for security, and hate it when we get it.” Americans will never be happy until they achieve satisfaction. Searching for the American Dream means dissatisfaction, and dissatisfaction implies never finding
3. Fear of defeats: Those who follow their dreams suffer far more than others because when they fail continuously, they can’t make the excuses such as ‘I didn’t want it anyway’. They know that they want to actualize their dreams and their path will not be easier than any other path they could follow. The warriors of light, as Paulo calls them, are prepared to be patient and let the Soul of the World conspire in their favor. 4.
We should not be prideful thinkers because it will not benefit anybody in any way, shape, or form. Pride is an endless cycle of the way people think of each other and themselves. People who are prideful will always try to make themselves look better than everyone around them, but on the inside there is fear and doubt of what they think others will think about them. When those that get made fun of will have to make a choice, they will stand up to it or will feel bad about themselves. And the people who take it in will start to use pride to make them look better about themselves.
All for something that’s not even guaranteed. That was a waste of a well deserved life and it teaches us a valuable lesson. Never under appreciate the things that you have because things could be totally different and it could be too late to realize the changes that needed to be made in your
We feel confused and displaced, and we begin filling our gaps of understanding with stories about how life is. But these stories often do us more harm than good. Imagine you’re in the midst of changing jobs, building a business, or getting in shape. What’s the story you’re telling yourself about incorporating this change into your life? Does it involve you being the confident hero of the story?
In “Pleasantville” and “As in the beginning” the characters experience difficult situations, making all the things being hard to conclude, or come back for the natural state. Both have something to miss, about the old part of life. They could give up, but they didn’t, because they knew that all the things will be better or get in a good place in the end, but not for sure. When David and his sister went to Pleasantville, they didn’t know how to come back, they passed for big and hard moments. They were differents, they knew and saw things that no one could see, making they showing the truth about the world, because in this ville, the fire didn’t exist.
Author Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, "Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow." This quote has been highly debated by those who believe that new experiances are vital to one 's development, and by those who belive that new experiances hinder one 's life. Trying to do something beyond what one have already mastered helps one grow because it makes one push himself, because it helps one gain lifelong experiances and lessons, and because it can bring failure into one 's life. Some may argue that trying new things does not help one grow because it intimidates and scares one from attempting anything new. While new experiances can be terrifying, one may grow by conquering that initial fear of
All our lives we are busy to gain things, whether it’s money, fame, or love. We don’t look at things we already have, and we are always lustful of things we don’t have. In my opinion we don’t value things we easily achieve and we show more concern towards the things which are hard to get and that is not the right way to precieve things. As the assignment asks, do we value what we struggle for? In my opinion, we do.
