Mistakes are universal, but everyone responds to being incorrect in different ways. The way that people choose to deal with their mistakes defines their integrity. The popular opinion is that apologizing makes up for the inaccuracy, but conversely, I believe that apologizing does not simply make a person ‘good’. A strong person is someone who proves that they intend not to make the same mistake again. An apology loses it’s meaning after it is repeated over and over.
Forgiveness “We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies” (Martin Luther King, Jr.). Why is it strenuous to forgive?
In “The Moral Logic of Survivor Guilt” by Nancy Sherman, one has done no wrong, but still has guilt, even in situations that are unexpected, as this happens way too much, and that those who have done wrongdoing should be feeling guilty. She states, “We often take responsibility in a way that goes beyond what we can reasonably be held responsible for. And we feel the guilt that comes with that sense of responsibility. Nietzsche is the modern philosopher who well understood this phenomenon: “Das schlechte Gewissen,” (literally, “bad conscience”)-his term for the consciousness of guilt where one has done no wrong, doesn’t grow in the soil where we would most expect it, he argued, such as in prisons where there are actually “guilty” parties who should feel remorse for wrongdoing”(Sherman 154). Illustrating, this proves that we take the responsibility for actions that we did not do, and should not feel any remorse, but that the people who have done wrongdoing, should have this feeling of guilt.
Hence, a true redemption can only lead to a healed sin. Before one understands what is forgiveness, reconciliation and healing, one should know what it really means. Forgiveness means acceptance of the offender and restoring relationship. Such an act sets in motion a process of reconciliation and healing.
Even though a broken heart may seem painful at the moment when you first experience it, learn to treat yourself respectfully and to always keep loving yourself. Don’t let anger and grief bring you down. Always surround yourself with people who love and care about you. “Always choose love because even though there is pain, to suffer in love is not to suffer in vain; it takes you to higher levels of consciousness.” When you learn to love yourself, this is when you initially mend your broken
“On the other hand” is a phrase often used when acknowledging other people’s beliefs. After stating that failing or being rejected, although not an easy thing to accept, Didion believes that this is the foundation for self-respect. This use of argumentative metadiscourse supports her article by showing the reader her thoughts on the subject. Some people think that self-esteem, to an extent, can be harmful to a person’s individual self. Didion states that having a lack of self-esteem is why human beings today are not successful.
The difference, however, is the feelings behind those emotions. Fear of punishment can forcibly change how a person responds to a situation. Following love goes with what that person believes. This is because when a people follow love, they are following it because the agree, not because they are afraid of it. Following fear can lead to a person going against what she believes to avoid negative consequences.
In this essay, several situations and characters in The Kite Runner will be discussed, but first of all, the two types of forgiveness will be examined. Firstly, there is a rather self-evident kind of forgiveness: the situation in which a victim forgives a culprit for his mistakes. This forgiveness is true if the victim does not somehow act on the basis of vengeance generated by those mistakes. This does not mean that the existence of the mistakes needs to be forgotten.
This theory involves the three domains of human development, the cognitive, affective and behavioral. It views that a forgiving person develops positive factors and decreased the negative ones in each of the three domains. Like in the cognitive domain, one has the capacity to acknowledge the pain and sufferings caused by the offender while relinquishing the negative thoughts. In the affective domain, the negative feelings are given up and develop a more neutral feeling or even positive affect. For the behavioral domain, the act of revenge ceases, while yearning for positive
Many people think that some actions can be forgiven and while others think it cannot. Forgiveness helps everybody feel light and get rid of hard feelings that haunt everybody. Forgiveness creates positive feeling in one’s mind. People who are close, hurt or betray an individual is difficult to forgive. This is prevalent in the story where in Amir and Hassan were best
But sometime when you gain perspective too quickly you can find yourself in a “fog ....” and feel nothing but “overwhelming ambiguity” (78). This is where most people feel falsely think they 've lost perspective because in these moments everything you know is challenged and your perspective must adapt for the new experiences you 've just encountered. When this happens it’s easier in the moment to believe you 're just confused and jumbled by your physical and mental chaos but infact what’s really happening is you are gaining knowledge and connecting parts of the world and ideas that really make no sense but with time will. THe stress of war makes it seem as though everything is changing like “love into hate,” and “ ugliness into beauty” (78). But what is important to note is that your connections and what you know to be “truth” is just disord but your perspective is not lost it 's just adding another dimension that your mind needs time to
The person can either take it to heart and help them become a better person at what they are doing, they can just brush it off and not listen to what is said, or thy can listen to it and be hurt and stay hurt by it. Most criticism is usually for the benefit of the person, but at times people may take it in the wrong way and think that they are being made fun of or mocked. People need to find a way to use the criticism to help them become a better person and to not take it as a negative thing meant to hurt their feelings. Rose Alexander stated in his article “7 Guidelines for Accepting Constructive Criticism” that, “After accepting criticism graciously, accept the responsibility for making changes that will help matters improve” (Alexander). This quote is trying to say to accept all of the criticism that people give and use it to help out your life and to make you a better person with what all you are
In life don’t we all live with the hope that when we allow some stupid conscience indiscretion to occur we hope there will be an opportunity to make amends? Have you never made a serious mistake and then hoped that somehow, it will be possible to correct your error in judgment and be forgiven by those you had harmed or offended? We may do something that is so hurtful to someone that forgiveness is not something that the offended person can find in their heart.
hree intertwining concepts: Self-kindness versus self-judgment, a sense of common humanity versus isolation, and mindfulness verse over-identification. These three aspects are each primary building blocks to helping an individual achieve self-compassion. People that have strong self-criticism tend to lack Self-kindness, but treat others better than they would treat themselves (Neff, 2003a). Self-kindness is seeing yourself in a more positive aspect and learning to stop and exercise kind words toward yourself when you’re in pain. We are often self-critical without much notice and don 't realize the unconscious effect it has on everyday function.
The only argument for relativists is their tolerance for everyone, but even this is a weak argument. The raising generation, is known for toleration, it is a worldview. Toleration can be good, we can understand and see other cultures, but if we are to tolerant then we lose our worldview and what we believe because we adapt other cultures. This is the reason people believe culture relativism, every culture is different and we don 't always have believe what other cultures
