Whether it’s from a certain religion, or a legend passed down from their ancestors. It’s in our human nature to come up with something to believe in, however obscure and ridiculous it may be. Many of these superstitions can dramatically affect a person’s life. Majority of people said that Friday the 13th is thought of as the most unlucky day of the year. Some people take it so seriously they develop a morbid irrational fear called Paraskevidekatriaphobia.
“The idea that some lives matter less is the root of all that is wrong with the world”~Dr. Paul Farmer. In the book Unwind by Neal Shusterman, unwinding is portrayed in many ways, and although unwinding was supposed to be beneficial, many reasons show the contrary. Many of unwinding rules and reasons are extremely unfair, and most don’t apply greatly and spark many debates as seen in the book. There are many reason to support the reasoning behind why all lives matter.
Misconceptions are formed from stereotypes and are usually rumors with no truth behind it. Many stereotypes and misconceptions have been developed from many years back, along these lines, we’ve adapted to these stereotypes and misconceptions to name people by a specific title according to what is seen. In today’s society we have stereotypes and misconceptions because of the fact that people are so quick to judging others by appearances and by what is said rather than learning what the person is about. Many millennials are prone to judging others or being judged by peers, whether it’s at school, work, or social media. Although a high percentage of stereotyping comes from young adults, many adults are exposed to this as much as teenagers are.
Most people avoid the truth because it could be ugly, painful, and can possibly cause self-reflection. In today 's society we are so accustomed to fake news and the illusion of it all. To hell with facts, who needs such a preposterous thing! This way of thinking is partially our fault because we have the ability to choose if we want to engage or disconnect from the illusion. The rest should be blamed on the media because they have the power to reach and influence the world.
The results of cyberbullying prove that it should always be punished based on its outcome, whether it was intentional or not. However, many people don 't realize its severity and seem to brush it off as a harmless trend that the kids are making a big deal of. It 's not that simple, though, and it should be clear by now that it causes an uncanny amount of deaths and it 's not something that we can just ignore. That 's why some people have taken certain steps to outlaw the act of cyberbullying. By developing several organizations which share the real facts and statistics, cyberbullying could be controlled or even eradicated.
“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves.” -William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar I can personally relate to this quote because I do believe whenever something unplanned or unpleasant happens many people within society like to blame others, the weather, their luck whatever a person wants to call it. But the fault is in ourselves, only you as a person can make a change and take charge of the things you most desire in life. For example myself, I have been known to take the easy way outs in my past, but my grade twelve years has been an enormous change for me and how I want my life to go for myself in the future and where I want to be in ten years. Instead of being apathetic about my personal health, education, mental health, ect., similar to what I have been in the past.

This would cause lots of unneeded stress and panic. The lawyer would lose faith in their ability, since they always relied on the universe for help. It is never good to constantly depend on superstitions for success, this could result in over confidence and poor decision making.

Throughout reading this story, I’ve come up with the theme of technology might not be as great as everyone think it is. After understanding the story a bit more, I learned that the theme is a myth along with reality; what you glimpse isn’t always the truth. In the story, the Place of the Gods is referred to as a forbidden place, an area that has metal that can kill anyone besides a priest. Generally, all of the village people believed that the forbidden place is a dangerous area, but John has demonstrated that were not the truth. Instead, it was just a destroyed
Immorality is also another behaviour, which is synonymous with corruption, dishonesty, illegality and a host of other vices. It could be considered as one of the reasons why the declining rate of indiscipline and moral values are on the increase in our country today. Every now and then, you hear of kidnappings here and there, stealing of public funds at all levels of government and of late in some churches also. Decadence in morality in our contemporary Nigerian society is gradually getting worse. Our so-called leaders of tomorrow no longer show respect to their elders; at times they behave and act the way they want.
In other words, even when we ‘think’ we are conscious, it is our unconscious mind which is actually making our decisions for us. So if you have negative programming in your unconscious, 95% of the time you will recreate those negative experiences in your life. And as those of us who have ever taken the time to check out our unconscious thoughts know, most of the programs our unconscious mind runs are based in negativity – for example fear of what other people are thinking about us, fear of not being loved and respected as we are,
