There are several quotes included in this notebook that focus on resilience. For me, I myself find that quotes also help me when I feel like I want to give up. They’re inspirational and make people feel a lot better and sometimes they even make then want to pursue what they want or need and to keep going. It could make them realise that the the situation they are in right now is not the final destination and that they can change where they are. These quotes are motivational.
When in reality I need some sort of extra help. I also need to work on following up with situations. I tend to be the person that when I find a solution, I leave it alone. Although, just because I find a solution for the moment, it doesn’t mean that I found the best solution/ it will work entirely. I am trying to better myself mentally for personal relationships moving
The biggest things I struggled with was the trash talking and having to deal with the new girlfriend or boyfriend. A lot of children may feel like they have a less stable family because of divorce. When my parents got divorced I was 5 years old and all I remember are the little things. I remember watching the fight that broke my parents up, but I don’t remember what was being said, I remember running to my sister crying saying that I’d miss her, I don’t remember my mom going to jail, but I do remember her calling me and telling me that she missed me. Once
While this may all come from a cartoon, there are some real life applications that you can gather from them. First, you might think that isolating ourselves from the people who care for you is a good choice for reflecting and solving problems. While that may be effective, you should also consider their help as they want nothing else but your wellness. Second, you must face the cause of your vulnerability, not bury it deep within the past. Lastly, you should be determined in what you do, but do not disregard compassion.
It remains me of both of my parents who were abandoned by their mothers when they were just babies. Both were raised by their grandmothers in poverty conditions. My mom grew up with love and good care, while mi dad suffer the lack of love, care, and food. As a result, my father was very resentful with his mother, while mi mom understood the reasons why her mom did not take care of her. My parents suffer a lot when they were children; my dad used to drink lots of alcohol.
An unfortunate common theme for this section of “The Warmth of Other Sons”, was loss. There were many individuals who suffered loss of a loved one in this section which concluded to some losing a part of themselves. I believe that Robert suffered the most loss. Robert’s love for Alice was very evident. It was specifically shown when he described their anniversary and the roses Robert would arrange for Alice every year.
The characters lose a part of themselves when they are searching for their true love. In Their Eyes Were Watching God, Janie was arguing with Jodie, while he was dying, about how he never treated her right after being together for 20 years. They revealed many things about themselves during this talk, especially how Jodie was hurt on the inside too. Janie looked at herself and realized this, “The young girl was gone, but handsome woman had taken her place”(108). This quote shows how Janie regained herself after that horrible relationship.
We need to tell ourselves emphatically that “Simply because I am feeling low at this moment, does not mean that things have to stay like this, for ever”. It can be changed for the better. We need to learn to see the situation from a wider perspective, which will allow us to be aware of the pull of our old habits of negative thinking, and take appropriate action for ensuring better care of ourselves during such vulnerable
It was through a vicarious source in which I learned about how things should be the other way around. In order to prevent us from falling apart and to allow us to have the strength to help others we need to be able to take care of ourselves beforehand. This is one of the reasons why my primary goal in life is to focus on improving my perception of myself. I want to not have as many doubts anymore, or to criticize myself for things that are out of my control. It may seem like a minimal task, but it really does have an influence on other components in our life.
However, individually and as a family unit, the expansion of extended family members who became more supportive due to my father having cancer in three separate eras. In fact, my parents still could think clearly and balanced equilibrium of individuality and togetherness. During my father’s second illness, there was a triangle that involved his mother, my mother, and my father, which was highly emotional for the family unit. My mother tried to stabilize the unit in the dyad. This tension at times contributed to her being left out in the dyad in which my father then moved his mother into the outside position to relieve the marital tension.
