Charles Proudfit, a literary critic explains, when Celie and Nettie were younger they had a mother and father, so their physical needs were met but their mother was mentally unstable and ill. This meant she could not be there for them a lot of the time and couldn’t provide the proper mothering they needed (Charles L. Proudfit). Celie never knew what it was like to be properly nurtured which causes her to feel left out. there were things about being a woman she does not understand, but she was still drawn to
On the other hand Hester doesn’t want or try getting attention through her actions. Also she becomes an outcast of the Puritan community and she slowly finds her way back through hard work and showing she cares. Secondly the way the two characters
In The Handmaid’s Tale, this occurs frequently. The women of Gilead are not allowed to have a say or a voice directly in the way society is run. In the beginning, women are seen as normal human beings, who have less rights than men, and just go with the flow in life. They work, they do household duties, and allow themselves to be taken advantage of. As these women continue to be passive, this passiveness leads to their downfall, where they lose their rights.
Jesse, Thank you for your great post on the ambivalent attachment style! I enjoyed how you described the ambivalent individual’s methods used in an attempt to save themselves from rejection, such as latching on and clinging to others. You mentioned their low perception of self as the spring of their expectation of abandonment. I would just add the root of their perception of self and others during a childhood of inconsistency.
Running Head: APOLOGY STRATEGIES 1 APOLOGY STRATEGIES 12 Name: Institution: Course: Date: Introduction Apology is termed as a key character that humans possess; it is always human to apologize and when one fails to do so it is always doubted whether the person is human or not.

The danger in believing this, is that the more broken a person becomes in your eyes, the less whole they will be, and upon throwing away the idea of humanity, morals are compromised in the pursuit of fulfilling a goal. It’s not a sacrifice, or a favor, to treat a person as your equal. I think people as a whole would benefit from learning ASL; it would open up a lot of opportunities to further connect with the people around you, and give a deeper appreciation for the way other people live. My thought process before was that the barrier between Deaf people and hearing people was insurmountable, but I have since learned that the barrier will only ever be as large as you decide it will be.
Confidence or a lack of helplessness causes people to be sure of their self identity. Fresh self identity can come from feelings of helplessness and empathy caused by these feelings help people get out of their bad place. The theme of helplessness affecting identity is absolutely one that relates to everyday life and is ultimately what makes The Destructors so
However, despite the rough circumstances, the two protagonists, George and Lennie find each other through insecurities and imperfections. Rather than fending off problems by themselves, the two protagonists learn the true value of friendship and support one another. As the story develops, both the characters and readers learn the true value of friendship. Although friendship means that one would have to be candid about insecurities, it prevents loneliness and unfortunate bitterness. Throughout the story, friendship is a guarantee that prevents loneliness and bitterness even if it means that one would have to be open about insecurities.
To deny your feelings is to deny it affects you in the first place. Human suffering is frequently caused by an inability to entertain the perspectives and feelings of others. Imagine a world where people in positions of power/leadership were ACTUALLY compassionate and empathic, rather than making a show of it. Empathy allows us to put ourselves in another person’s shoes, see the world through their eyes, and feel the way that they feel.
So, people who believe that they have responsibility, self-control, and self-improvement to solve the problem which creates stress, copes better (Roberts et al., 1997). One of the main coping strategy of the problem focus coping is being assertive (Bartram & Gardner, 2008). Assertiveness involves the sense of control and asserting personal positions. Researches sign that people who have low assertiveness don’t use problem focused coping, don’t talk about the problem enough with other party, don’t be active while choosing the strategy, and don’t struggle for the solution. However, people who have high assertiveness try to solve the conflicts more effectively, experience less problems and are healthier in work life.

1. Based on the dialogue Sammy uses, one can suspect he does not take himself too seriously. He speaks from a first person point of view which portrays him as a quiet observer. Sammy also seems to be slightly shallow because when he is referring to the girls in bathings suits inside the store he notes, the girl that initially caught his attention was the “chunky” girl in plaid. In addition to his shallowness, Sammy uses harsh words such as “the fat one with the tan sort of fumbled the cookies.”
“There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.” This beautiful quote stated by Steve Maraboli is directed towards women, but instead should be directed towards both the male and female audience.
