My dad not approving of my choice to run affected me at first by making me feel bad because I want to make him proud, but now I don't care. He's learned to accept my choice in sports, but he still believes in the stereotype. 3.This single story isn't true, and I don't agree with the single story. Cross country is a sport just like football, volleyball, basketball,ect. People saying cross country is a waste of time and bad for the body makes me rethink their intelligence especially if they are an athlete.
I shook the branch and made it fall, I myself cannot truly tell whether or not I meant to shake that branch but I do regret it. I was in a competition with Finny in my own mind, but that was no reason to ruin him. I was always trying to beat him and that caused such a rage inside me that will never compare to anything because I wanted nothing more than to be him. He was almost perfect in every way and I was not, that never sat well with me. Things changed once he fell, he was dependent on me, and he needed me.
I sat back and realized I was being an absolute brat at this point. I couldn 't believe I was complaining so much when my family could be hurt or fighting to save my life. I needed to stay strong not just for myself, but for them. I had to trust them and trust that they would keep us all safe. So with that I tried to stop dwelling so much and just try
He just wants to protect the flower he loves so badly and doesn’t want her to get hurt or sad. So he kept asking the same question that the narrator didn’t know, so then the narrator got mad so then the prince was mad too because he is really worried and the narrator didn’t help him. I think the reason he did that was because he was just worry and scared because he didn't wanted to lose her and wants to stay with her, but he went on a trip so then he was mad at himself that he didn’t stay with
This “shortcut” to manhood leads him to make many enormous mistakes that negatively affect his achievement of autonomy. Through this, Richard Wright is trying to show that adolescents often demand autonomy, but they are not ready to accept the responsibility that comes with it. Throughout the story, Dave demonstrates over and over that he is not ready for the responsibility that comes with manhood by lying. An example of Dave’s childish lies and deceit happens after he had shot the mule, and he tries to cover up his
In my foteen years of life i have missed many oppurtinies. I have missed many new experiences. I may regret some and might not even remember most. Some oppurtunities could have helped me advance mentally, physcsly or helped me in other ways, but i did not take them. Regretting events is not good for anyone or anything, because then you over think and feel even more angry at yourself and you wish you could go back and change your decision.
If wanting revenge means, being blind of what's happening around you, then Willie isn't able to see that he is hurting his family with such a feeling of wanting revenge. I noticed this when his wife said “You don't sound human, and I don't like it.” And Willie answered “You'll get used to it.” Also when Willie didn't let his kids go to see the white man, instead he locked them. This showed me that the feeling of wanting revenge made him act this way, hurting the ones around him. He knew that it could've been the only time that his kids could have had the opportunity to experience seeing a white man . In conclusion all the scenes where Willie was being rude to his wife were letting me know that the feeling of anger as a result of something bad that was done to a person can lead that person to want revenge and not letting it see that such a feeling can be hurtful to the ones
If I were raised in such environment, I would always blame myself for making mistakes, and for not being the best. However, it’s not about being the best, but about being better; this is something I learned from my father. He has always told me to do what I have to do, and what I can do; winning or losing is not important, it’s the journey toward the goal that is important. I can tell, that these words were always releasing for me, as I knew that nobody is expecting something from me, so I have always been comfortable working for my goal, and maybe have given my best without being conscious of it. However, I liked the fact that the father did encourage his daughter to participate, and did the impossible to have her in the beauty contest.
It was at the moment Friar Lawrence had found out Friar John did not deliver the letter because he was not able to he realized he made a mistake trusting him and should have given him more time for a task like this. For us to know how Friar Lawrence felt about this news of the important letter he says“Unhappy fortune! By my brotherhood, The letter was not nice but full of charge. Of dear import, and the neglecting it May do much danger.” In this quote it again demonstrates how Friar Lawrence is the one most to blame for the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet because of how he thought his actions over without thinking about the main
I felt my heartbreak a little for him. He wanted all of us to hang out, but I just ruined it. I almost wanted to change my answer. “I need to work. I wish I could though.” “Why do you always have an excuse to get out once I mention Cody?” “What do you mean?
When I would try to talk to him about how the things he did made me feel he’d yell at me and turn everything into my fault. For a while he had me believing everything was my fault. I don’t know why I put up with his abuse for so long. I feel like I should have tried harder to end things with him and it’s my fault that I didn’t. Every time I would try to break up with him, he turned everything around and made me feel like everything was my fault and made me feel sorry.
Seeing all of the pictures of my friends in their uniforms made me jealous and upset about my decision. I wanted my friends to think that I was not afraid to quit. My dad tried to talk me out of quitting, but I did it anyways. Lengel also tried to talk Sammy out of quitting by telling him he did not know what he was doing. “You don’t know what you’re saying”
On the outside, I smiled, but on the inside, I was jealous, and furious. I was supposed to win, and I felt cheated. The reason I didn’t get the promotion was because I was unable to represent myself in front of the board due to my assignment. In the ensuing weeks, my attitude changed. Angry and bitter, I stopped volunteering and participating in additional duties.
I knew there was no way I could always be the best. Losing pumped me up, made me want to be better... "They have to take care of everyone" my parents would say. This principle irritated me to no end, and I would often grumble for days about losing out on the grounds that my superiors wanted to recognize my average peers." Chen 's feelings as a child back the position that such acknowledgment can frustrate those that try to succeed. It may also cause them to feel that by putting in less effort they will still receive the same amount of recognition as their peers who may not be trying as hard.
