Dear Noelle McCarthy I strongly disagree with your article “being different will only result in tears”. You make a number of incorrect points, comparing the lives of animals to the lives of humans. In most cases being different is a good thing as it makes you unique to the other people, if every one is the same you will eventually get bored of them, so making new friends who have a different personality than you do is a good thing in most groups. Every one is unique in most ways; basically we all do the same things, however it goes down to the way we think, that is the way that makes everyone unique, you cant change the way you think, but you can change the way you behave. You generalize being different, you may be different in a positive or negative way, it’s just the negative way, which she describes as “deadly”, some people choose to be different and succeed in life for example make friends or finding a good job just because your personality is different, celebrities prove that as most of them are classified as weird however millions of people follow them.
Many people would like to change their lifestyle and their tradition to look like other ones. But does that change make them more satisfied? it does not, because what will be the meaning of life if all people are the same? If one group of people is happy with their tradition, it does not mean other group will be happy as well if they just act them, because the different of conditions that in each group and that what is called the different of thoughts. Believing in the content of the TV shows and make it as people guidance will cause a lot of problems for people’ lifestyle.
When we bump into someone on regular basis, the chance of developing friendship is more. We normally tend to be drawn to people we have similarities with: a weird sense of humour, similar hobbies, the same cultural background, a shared major or career path etc. So really making new friends isn’t that difficult if we think about it, but maintaining the friendship and making it last for the long run is what most of us have problems with. Many of us face problems when it comes to maintaining friendships. Why is that though?
“Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are”- Benjamin Franklin. Although many believe that the world is a minor step away from achieving equality for all, these individuals’ are strongly mistaken. Unfortunately, individuals’ often overlook various occurrences’ of inequitable treatment in their own lives; due to their modernized outlook on fairness, as well as what the term “being fair” truly stands for in society. Throughout my lifetime I have been exposed to an immense amount of lessons connecting to the same base of social justice issues worldwide. However, several short stories as well as seminars in particular have created a substantial impact on my perspective towards the topic.
Society can change from a person’s influence based on their ideas and nature. However, some people would not agree with a person’s influence and left isolated and be free from the society. Everyone usually agrees mostly everything and that within our lives, those ideas could support and are difficult to revolt and cause a permanent problem for people who do not support the person’s ideas and left isolated. Regardless of the perception, people have different opinions and it could lead catastrophic on a society. The most common problem that people face is racism.
Some people lie to avoid facing the consequences of something they have done, or because it seems more convenient than telling the truth. Most of the times liars end up losing people’s trust, gaining bad reputation, and sometimes they may even lose their identity. Similar to what happened to the people in the film they believed their own lies after lying make times. All of the people in the film have one thing in common a bad reputation in everyone eye’s. When it comes to my relationship, I had several opportunities in the past that could have save me a lot of trouble.
Judging other cultures to one’s own culture is something that is very common in the world because everyone will not understand how other people do things because of how weird it is to them and how they do those things their way. This is and explain of Ethnocentrism, which is a reflection other cultures with one’s own culture; many people will compare their cultures to other cultures based on the values, standards, and norms of those cultures. In every culture, the living style is a lot different from the next; many people do things in different ways, for example, the way parents in The United States show the discipline to their children is not the same way parents in China punishes their children. Both cultures might compare each other’s way of punishment and may think that the other culture is weird. However, that is what Ethnocentrism is mainly about one culture comparing and contrasting with other cultures.
But this too is wrong. Many people with autism cope well with structured conversations (which are the kind generally required in a working environment) and are very open to learning social skills, which can be easily acquired through appropriate training. It is also wrong to think that autistic people are all introverted and don’t like being with people. While many are like this, there are also large numbers who are naturally extroverts and love being with people. They are the ones who suffer most from rejection by society and prolonged periods of
Negative stereotypes can have harmful consequences especially to teens or students. By stereotyping, we infer that a person has a whole range of characteristic and abilities that we assume all members of the group have. According to Blum(2004), Stereotypes are false or misleading generalizations about groups held in a manner that renders them largely, though not entirely, immune to counterevidence. In addition to, Aronson(1999) claimed that stereotypes affects people’s social lives,emotions, and how people interact with their environment. There are times people are not so open to the idea of meeting new people, and making new friends.
A lot of people misunderstood them and they were afraid but very few know they were innocent, because they know and understand that Islam would not do something so traumatizing out of the blue. That is why religion also has a big role, because it applies understanding in its followers. These are the ways that we can use to improve ourself of our flaws when it comes to nurturing and cherishing harmony in a diverse community. Before we can help others we must help ourselves, in hopes that our flaws do not transfer into the hearts of the people around us and cause more trouble than we already have. We must stop this childish thought that is within us, it is time for us to move on with our differences because if we do not do it then who
I believe establishing relationships within the community is important because it lets people know that someone care about them. Another, core values of the NASW code of Ethics is services. Through services, social workers provide services to others. Social workers provide on their knowledge, values, and skills to help people in need and to address social problems (Code of Ethics). Furthermore, social workers can help people in need to reach their full potential through resources.
I agree with Trudeau’s ideals of how national relationships should operate. In my view, it’s because some don’t prioritize interaction and being open with each other that our current society is plagued by a discriminative feature: stereotypes. The problem affects both our government and social society. Because of stereotypes, there are certain aspects expected from a person because of their race, beliefs, and/or culture. Stereotypes are widely known and are hard to get rid of since, some choose to be ignorant in learning the various types of people we will come to communicate with; their lack of knowledge would force them to use the information available to them, which are stereotypes.
It is important for a person to know their true identity. If they do not know their true identity then they are not truly themselves, they are someone or something else. Most people choose to ignore who they really are because they are afraid that people will make fun of them for being different, but being different is a good thing and that should never hold anybody back. In fact, it should make people proud that no one else is quite like them. For example, Hercules and April both were left out because they were different, but they used their differences from others and became leaders where they were.
“The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority is a person’s conscience” (Lee 57). Many people will silence their opinions because they are not conventional. However, if nobody spoke up in situations about things like acts of racism, the world would be even more abhorrent than it already is. Everybody has opinions and those ideas should be recognized in a tasteful way, free of hatred and bitterness. A fallout between friends or a small possibility of something does not mean that one must give up or end a bond.
