He is very sociable, and desires to talk to everybody rather they want him to or not. I am glad I helped him understand that if somebody does not want to talk to him or find him funny, it does not exactly mean that they did not like him. He seemed to need the assurance from an external source. W- I would have to say that my weakness is that I did not want to talk to him when I first met him. These were my own insecurities as I did not want to cause a disruption in him.
Stress provokes the fight-or-flight response that allows us to protect ourselves from danger, including feelings. Therefore, whenever we are feeling bad, the brain will try to find ways way that will make us happy. According to Kelly McGonigal, the author of The Willpower Instinct, McGonigal states that negative emotions shift the brain into a reward-seeking state(136). Our brains become convinced that the only way we will feel better is with the "promise of reward" which eventually leads to giving in. Similarily, Mihaly Csikzentmihaly, the author of Finding Flow also discusses the effects of negative emotions, stating that "psychic entropy" makes it harder for us to focus.
The theme in the story tells me that I have to appreciate myself and love me and my flaws or I won’t be happy. I shouldn’t let what others think of me affect how I think of myself. Being perfect isn’t everything as long as you’re happy and comfortable with who you are that’s all that matters. We’re all humans so no matter what we do we won’t be perfect. There’s so much criticizing we lose sight of what there’s good in us because all we worry about is the negativity in us instead of focusing on the positive things that we like about ourselves.
The less a character wants to be the big hero in the situation the kinder fate will be to them. An example of this is in the union of Brunhild and Gunther. Gunther is so enamored by Brunhild that he is willing to deceive her and fate with the help of Sigfrid. I think that it is possible to deceive fate, but not for any prolonged amount of time. Gunther did end up with what he wanted, but he was not sincere in his approach, disregarded the courtly, and to a lesser extent the heroic, nature of the challenge that Brunhild set up.
This makes him depressed, and therefore drinks to make himself feel better. This condition also makes him an incompetent, but when he is asked to sober up by an angry Katniss, he makes a deal with them, saying: “All right, I’ll make a deal with you. You don’t interfere with my drinking, and I’ll stay sober enough to help you.” (Collins, 2008, p.70) Katniss and Haymitch are not very good friends and they despise each other. He irritates Katniss by calling her “sweetheart”, and this anger Katniss. Although they don’t get along, he helps her, by communicating with her through the gifts he sends to her in the arena, and Katniss realizes that she and Haymitch are very much alike as they both understands each other.
I am a Skeptic-Orphic-Solipsist. A Skeptic person doubts everything that they do, and what other’s do. An Orphic person believes that good is rewarded and evil is punished. A Solipsist believes that idea’s come from experiences. So basically I doubt my life, believe that if I do something good I will be rewarded, and believe that the best idea’s come from your life experiences.
3, p. 7). Their goal is to greater themselves through self-enhancement (Lecture Ch. 3, p. 7). Self-enhancement is important to those high in self-monitoring because it is consistent with the idea of creating a positive public image (Lecture Ch. 3, p. 6).
“Find their sense of value vulnerable to the opinions of others” ( Lickerman,The Value Of A Good Reputation). The article, The value of a good reputation by Alex Lickerman contributes that reputations are based off how one's actions are perceived in society, reputations can motivate a person to act accordingly to what others value and see important. “ It's harder to build than to destroy.” (Lickerman, The Value Of A Good Reputation) Shakespeare displays this idea in Othello, if you're creating a false image of yourself it will be much harder to maintain that
I kind of learned that I really, really hate talking about myself. I absolutely hate it. I haven’t ever really liked it, but it was just so difficult to write about myself. However, I did realize that I don’t care what people think of me. Doing the drawing activity made me feel good about myself and really opened up my eyes because I realized that I couldn’t care less what other people thought of me, or how I was stereotyped or labeled.
We all know that when someone talks to us in an uplifting and positive manner we feel better about that person and also ourselves and thus we are more willing to act in a positive manner, but on the contrary if someone speaks to us in a degrading manner we feel bad about ourselves and are not as willing to help or be our best person. It is the same when we choose to speak kindly to others; the better choice of words we make the better we feel and the freer we will become. Freedom, and the loss of freedom, comes through both the way we act and the way we speak. If we want to be free we will choose actions and words that help others thus in turn help our inner
