During the morning time he: brushed his teeth, took a shower, combed his hair, and lastly ate his breakfast before he left home.

This hesitation and doubt causes the crystal merchant to conform, and instead live his life simply “dream[ing] about Mecca” (55). This choice of conformity forever abstains the crystal merchant from pursuing his dream, as he himself admits, “[he is] not going to go to Mecca” (61). Another example of submitting to the fear of failure is when the Englishman searches for the Alchemist in desire of achieving the Master Work and learning alchemy - the science of turning lead into gold. However, the Englishman is far too afraid to attempt the act himself and adapts to that fear through means of literature. He wallows in his fear by spending “enormous amounts of time at the great libraries of the world, and [by purchasing] all the rarest and most important volumes on alchemy” (66), too fearful to ever perform alchemy itself.
Randolph’s isolation causes him to become lonely, and his fear of rejection causes him to control those in his presence, especially when it came to the matters of his heart.

People should always put themselves in a better position if possible. You shouldn’t let yourself be in a bad situation if it’s possible to put yourself in a better place. People for years have been putting people above them consequently letting themselves be put in a bad spot. Although some people may believe it’s better to do this you’re just hurting yourself. Junior made the correct decision leaving the reservation because the reservation was in a cycle of poverty, it wasn’t a safe environment for him and people on the reservation aren’t given chances in life.
He realizes that poverty is acting as an anchor, keeping him grounded from reaching new heights and succeeding in life. Junior is being persuaded to leave the reservation; to pursue his dreams, the only problem is that he does not know where to go. Mr. P explains to Junior “Son… You’re going to find more and more hope the farther and farther you walk away from this sad, sad, sad reservation” (Alexie 43). Junior is told that he can have a different future from his parent’s or anyone else’s on the reservation. The fact
Gutting and Edmundson both blame the structure of the education system, but at the same time it sounds like the change needs to come only from students. In their book I wouldn’t always be their “ideal” student that is depending on the classes they would teach me. Like Gutting said colleges sometimes give unnecessary courses, so it can be hard to be interested in something that in no way relates to your major. If one of the authors were instructors in one of my unnecessary” classes they probably would make comments that I’m “weak minded” or “not genius”.

The same article also states that the Associated Students Senate in UC Santa Barbara is passing a resolution that will make it a policy to include trigger warnings in class syllabi and class discussions. Notably, this could be the result of increasing awareness for mental health problems and the resurgence of political correctness.
