Mairs herself doesn’t fully comprehend why she decided on this title, but she believes that she wants others to see her as a “tough customer”. A person who “fates/gods/viruses have not been kind”, yet still can accept the brutal truth. By claiming all this, Mairs makes the reader realize that she’s a unyielding individual, yet also appeals to pathos by invoking feelings of sympathy from the reader. Also, one would likely agree that
Both women are victims of their societies, however, Tessie’s perspective on her situation differs greatly from that of Jane’s. Tessie appears to be compliant with the yearly ritual until she is the one who draws the damning slip of paper, provoking her to argue that her situation is unfair. “Suddenly, Tessie Hutchinson shouted to Mr. Summers. “You didn’t give him time enough to take any paper he wanted. I saw you.
For the first objection, I would agree. The unknown will eventually come up, but it wouldn’t come before building a relationship. Once trust and respect have been established, the individual is willing to open up and satisfy any unknown that still applies, As for the second objection, I understand the fear that goes along with this objection. But consider the emotional level of the individual being questioned. Given an incident where the man and the woman began to converse and the man began interrogating the woman in an attempt to cure the unknown, feeling vulnerable, the woman would instead withdraw and refuse to talk or perhaps even leave.
Many people in today 's world do not take the time to use names it is always hey you, dude, bro, girl, and so the list goes on; as a result our generation is known for being disrespectful in regards to previous years. Although, in today 's society disrespect is more common that is not the case for everyone. Respect is something that people have or they do not; it is mainly taught
Luce is first very aware that by delivering her speech she is most likely to be criticized by her audience. Due to the fact that she has asked her audience for opinions, and their feelings toward the American press. Luce has still continued to speak the truth about journalist not being completely honest. She presents herself by saying, “Even at their invitation- does not generally point evoke and enthusiastic- no less a friendly response” (L. 13-14). Luce explains and wants to let her audience know that the feedback is not going to be positive because of all the criticism she is going to receive, and points out the problem that is going to build in her position.
Later, in the same conversation, Lomia admits to Cape that she does not feel things; “I want to, I try to feel things -- I hate it in here, in this -- thick -- pitch -- everything I do, I do to get OUT (Thompson, pg. 56). Lomia is admitting to, more or less, hiding herself behind an emotional wall. However, what is important to note is that she wants to get out. She is able to realize her shortcomings and wants to be better, but does not necessarily know the right way to achieve this change.
I would allow unfortunately allow my emotions to mix between the role of a friend and a victims advocate which only further hurts the victim rather than supports. One ethical dilemma I could potentially face would be to give the victim advice. I am not authorized to do that when speaking to a victim of trauma, I can only give them options, listen to them, believe what they are saying and support them. Another ethical dilemma every victims advocate faces is the importance of confidentiality. It is absolutely important to remain absolutely confidential unless the victim gives you the authority to share their story or situation.
I was confronted with a rather common conflict of bullies in sixth grade, and was verbally rather than physically abused on a daily bases. My first response was to ignore it, but it progressively got worse until the point where I was always in a bad mood. This put the people around me in a sour mood as well. No one was ever happy around me, including myself, for a long time. Until finally, I exploded while having another session of their abuse.
She ignored the question. “You know you can tell my anything. I’m your mom. Of course I would have gotten mad, but the fact that you tried to hide it from me made the problem worse.” Thinking about it, I knew I could tell my mom anything, but I was scared of the consequences. However, I learned my lesson to always show integrity and own up to your actions and
There were also times when I had to talk to my recruits about crossing the line when it came to jokes and 'banter' and I had to pull certain people aside to talk to them about this issue, even though I didn't want to be mean I had to be fair and they had to understand what they were doing wasn't acceptable behaviour, and that there is a time and place for everything, whilst I could've ignored this issue amongst my recruits and told them to get over it I wanted my platoon to be a team and to be close, and as they are my responsibility I wanted to ensure that every single person was ok and had a good camp experience. Another aspect of being a SGT was having to comply with orders you didn't always agree with, there were some cases when higher rank would make decisions that didn't always make sense, however, we had to follow them as they were our rank, whilst this was frustrating if it was absolutely preposterous we were able to suggest an alternative or learn from the mistakes we made. Overall I really think everyone in my platoon including myself grew within those 7 days and with perseverance and teamwork we all made it through and came out stronger by the end, I'm so proud of them all and loved and found it an absolute privilege to watch them grow, whether they were a CPL coming to terms with their leadership position or the recruits just getting through the physical and mental challenges, I'm glad I got to be a part of it and have somewhat of a positive
