However, one must stay true and authentic and understand the desires and needs, in order to attain an adequate living, just like Chris McCandless. In today’s society, self-reliance and non-conformity is an annotation on the tenets that people still value. Some people in today’s world have seemed to forgotten the ability to be content in isolation and individuality. Being true to oneself takes bravery and it compels one to be pensive and unbiased. Like Chris McCandless, he was pensive and unbiased without being thoughtless or impertinent to others.
Holding your head high is important in life because people should not care what other people think or say affect their mood or confidence because they say it to affect them and get attention.People need to keep being them self and not care what people say unless it is positive. Like Mrs. Dubose she wanted them to act on what she was saying so they would have to do something for her which was reading in this case. During the story other people are going to say mean hateful things to the kids and they need to know how to hold their head high and just forget about
On the other side of the spectrum dress codes do not allow students to express themselves. They also make students feel like they are trapped in all the different things they are not allowed to wear.Dress codes are not the greatest but they will help you in life because they are helpful and have rules, they are negative, and positive. Dress codes help us be appropriate but it can also be too
It shows that society should not be afraid of what they do not know or understand. The people are also afraid, and they are very fearing and seem troubled, while the children are enthusiastic and seek to enjoy their life. They show that while the unknown may be dangerous and seem dangerous, it may actually be beneficial for you in the long run, and may help you learn something. Instead of living in fear all your life. Therefore, this is how Burton used his contrasting
People should not fit others into a category, and those people should not be okay with it. Being unique is good, and if people are unique, then they are being who they are. That is not a bad thing; it is a good thing. The story of Tris’s journey through the Dauntless initiation is a good example for young people, especially people who can be impressionable, to be who you are, no matter what other people think and almost no matter what the risks could be. Tris was able to stay true to herself while still managing through Dauntless initiation.
Holden doesn’t want to experience the unpleasantness of the world and wanted to retain the carefree nature of his childhood. He also wanted to act as someone who would protect other children’s innocence. However, by the end of the book, Holden learned that he needed to let children take risks and that he cannot escape from the adult
Benjamin Franklin’s 13 virtues are truly something to follow. They contain a theme of avoiding conflict and being clean, mentally and physically. The virtues that seem the most important in achieving a well-balanced life, to me, are Franklin’s Silence and Order. I chose these two out of the 13 because they were the closest to my personality currently. As a child, I was taught to think before I speak and that “Words hurt more than actions.” Considering that Franklin’s Silence is to speak what may benefit others or myself, I do believe abiding to this will make me balanced and keep me out of unnecessary disputes.
Why is it important for people to stand up for what they believe in? Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “ Our lives being to end the day we become silent about the things that matter.” Our beliefs and values are essential to the people that we are today, so we need to defend them and not be ashamed. Defending what you think is right will make you feel better because you’re not scared to speak about your beliefs. People should stand up for themselves because it helps build confidence and may influence someone's views. When people stand up for what they believe in it helps build their confidence.
If I were to ignore this core value of respect, I would not be a good role model for my pupils. They might think that since I do not value respect, it would also be 'okay' for them to do so, and thus it might result in them behaving badly and disrespecting their classmates, their teachers, and even their family members. Respect is the foundation of a good and trusting relationship, and since I want my pupils and their parents to trust me, I should treat them with respect for them to learn that it is a valuable moral necessary for good
It is not about punishing a child for doing something wrong but, about setting clear parameters and consequences for breaking rules so that they learns how to discipline themselves. A child who has been taught right from wrong and has a solid sense of what negative and positive behavior is. They will know when they have done something wrong. They will want to behave correctly out of a desire to be a good citizen and a member of their family and society, not because they fear
Equality broke the law of no being with everybody, and not being in the place he was suppose to be at, he also didn’t report it straight to the council like he was suppose too. Conformity took place here because he didn’t report it to the council like he was suppose to and broke the laws. “It was a great tunnel. The walls were hard and smooth to the touch, it felt like stone but it was not stone.” (Rand 32). After they discovered the subway they went they everyday and experimented with new stuff they got from the community and started learning about the unmentionable times.
Face-to-face interactions would gain importance because it could serve as one of the only ways to connect with other groups one comes across. In addition, communication could serve as a tool to improve efficiency within a group to help increase safety in the perilous world. Other things would lose importance completely, such as incomes, technology, and schools, since “moral survival” would become the new curriculum. The things people once valued would be entirely different - rather than education, survival; rather than money, food; rather than friends, one’s self – and not until the diseased world would many, including myself, even question them. In a time like this, the phrase “things aren’t as they used to be” would apply quite
Wallace truly believes that SWE is the correct way of writing, and that there is only one dialect. Wallace wants to stick to the norms and teach kids the right way. By having Wallace being a critic, he will be strict, and will be taken more seriously. A SNOOT is someone that knows what everything means, is always correct, and doesn’t mind letting you know it. Another way you can define a SNOOT is a snob.
Another would be that it is foolish to want those close to you – family, friends, etc, - to live forever because that’s not up to you and as stated in the quote above, it’s foolish to want things that aren’t yours to be yours because that’s impossible. He gives example in his sixteenth rule that when a person is mourning, it’s not what had happened, but rather his/her judgment of what has happened, so the best approach is to not mourning it inwardly, or applying feeling/judgment to it. So nothing beyond our own opinions belong to us, and because we can control our opinions, we can apply his reasoning that’ll supposedly lead to achieving peace of mind in life. This is because in his thinking, reason is good, and irrationality is bad, and to be intolerable of the rational – things out of your control – is irrational. Another part of human finitude that he gives way to improve upon is lack of self-discipline.
Truth is, there is going to be downs, and there is going to be absolutely no way out of it. People are going to put you down, but you have to keep your head up and realize, there’s nothing wrong with you. Keep on the look out, and help people in need as if what you would want for yourself .I think the best thing to deal with stress and to figuring out things is a way to cope with it. Make sure you separate your school life from your social life. So you have equal time for both,
