Bevan and Sole (2014) noted, “Emotional support involves acknowledging and understanding what the person in need is feeling” (p. X). Dinnozo’s failure to connect with McGee through feelings, compassion, sympathy, and concern could have possibly prevented this conflict from occurring. Dinnozo could have assisted McGee by asking clarifying questions to gain a better perspective since the situation was beyond McGee’s control. Being a good listener and using the Golden Rule “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” was clearly displayed by Gibbs at the end of the show when he had all his co-workers over to his house. Ideally this is not what Gibbs wanted, but he set aside his personal thoughts and feelings and showed his co-workers that they meant more than himself.
Next time I promise I 'll point at them and laugh, then go eat some of Frypan 's dinner”(Dashner, 166) This quote proves that Thomas can’t stand anyone facing trouble. He has to in any way help out or reach for help. It also shows how he fights for what is right and creates connections just to prove his point rights. Based on the quote and the incident that occured, Thomas has affected and created the theme of friendship at that moment. If Thomas just let those two individuals
For this reason, it is easier for someone to merely make assumptions based on Art’s outward appearance and behavior than to put in the effort to foster a real relationship and become informed on his condition. Throughout the story, characters demonstrate this unwillingness to hear Art, whether it is Cassius Delamitri getting sick of Art’s friendly advances and tying him around a chair leg (Hill, pg. 68), or the narrator’s father belligerently misinterpreting Art’s contributions to their conversations as insults (Hill, pg. . 71).
He understood that Chris was a well educated and arrogant man, leading him to be full of himself, while ill equipped. Gallien described “[his] gear [as] exceedingly minimal for the harsh conditions of the interior” (Krakauer, 1997, p. 6), and rather than listen to the advice of others, Chris moved forward with his plans. He clutched onto the knowledge he gathered from the society he ran from, in a weak attempt to find individuality, which resulted in his death by starvation and late realization that “happiness [is] only real when shared” (Krakauer, 1997, p. 129). It’d be easy for someone to accept starvation as a cause of death in such a scenario, but Jon saw beyond that, allowing the reader to analyze Jon’s own analysis of the journaling that Chris did. Chris’ journal entry describing his weakness at the “fault of the pot.
He was stuck in following his father’s code to the point that he was not growing. Not that it was a failed process, as it is the key factor reassuring how he has not been caught and keeps some kind of conscience. Clearly, he did not know how to be himself while also following the code. He had to fake everything about himself to get by with this billion-pound burden, therefore he took on a different persona. Somewhat like the quiet guy who brings donuts to the office with a charming smile so everyone will like him, Dexter is this individual.
In conclusion, one aspect of the reading, The Road to Hell, we can analyse is the importance of understanding the people around you. John Baker’s intentions towards Matt Rennalls were not based on a bad premonition. His lack of understanding the behavioural characteristics of his worker was his major downfall. One business ethic we must hold sacred is the ethic of not offending our workers. John Baker forgot this ethic and that is why he was not successful in admonishing his workers.
He believes he is “..see[ing] life like it is” (141) in order to rightfully take his place as the head of the family by making this decision for them, regardless of the hope this house brought them all. The rest of the Younger family is disconcerted by this new business deal, and asks Walter if this is what he truly wants and believes is right, to which he responds that he’s “Going to feel fine…[like] a man…” (144). Due to internally knowing he still had prove himself but not physically doing so, Walter’s delicate, false pride in being a man doesn’t allow him to consider how his actions affect
Perhaps if the family had kept trying to make it down, they would have and wouldn’t have needed to become cannibals. What might be worse is that they don’t seem to feel badly about their choice. They casually reveal to the boy’s parents, “All right, you rest up, get better, we ate your son.” (“Into Fat Air”) This shows existential spirit by doing what is necessary in situations and not having to experience social repercussions, or at least they don’t care what those would be. They are free to make choices, and also free to live by and defend those decisions. Whether or not the boy’s parents judged them or not does not impede the family’s ability to make that
Trying to convince himself that his dad is unworthy and because of that he could be treated un-humanly. Even though his behavior was out of context since his father has proved to cherish since he always "listened attentively". Giving John no right to assume how others appraise his father. While in the story Two Fishermen, Michael finds himself in a floundering situation when Smitty gives him 2 fish that he caught earlier that day which not only symbolizes their comradeship but also the trust Smitty had within Michael. Yet, he still found himself moving back to blend in with the crowd.
Naturally, as his bond with Jim cultivates, Huck unknowingly treats him as a human. Through Huck’s sensibility, he states, “It didn’t take me long to make up my mind that these liars warn’t no kings nor dukes at all … I hadn’t no objections, ‘long as it would keep peace in the family; and it warn’t no use to tell Jim, so I didn’t tell him” (Twain 125). Correspondingly, Huck gains a consideration for Jim and his personal feelings, which he expresses nonchalantly through motley aspects of their journey. This also shows how his aspects of racism are changing; he starts to believe people are people, no matter
2. Rejected Extremes Jim is able to reconcile various manifestations of adulthood where others have failed through the rejection of rigid, extremist, and even stereotypical roles. A clear example of such dismissal of rigidity occurs when Captain Smollett commands Jim to get to work: “I assure you I was quite of the squire 's way of thinking, and hated the captain deeply” (Stevenson 28). Smollett is a unique character because unlike even most of the adults, he does not exhibit childlike tendencies and remains static throughout the narrative. Following Jim 's recapturing of the Hispaniola, he is hopeful that Smollett would forgive him for his disobedience.
It’s evident throughout the novel Nick starts to act like the East Eggers that he despises, “I had actually been invited (41).” As soon as Nick arrives at Gatsby’s party, he separates himself from the other guests by saying he was “actually invited.” His superior tone coincides with the attitude the upper class has towards everything. Caraway continues to distinguish himself from others by recalling, “As soon as I arrived I made an attempt to find my host (42).” Nick infers that he is more polite than the other guests, who don’t bother to look for Gatsby. In either case, Nick shows he is courteous compared to guests at this party; the residents of the East Egg take pride in their etiquette, much like Nick tries to replicate. Caraway’s
Had Rick apologized for his brash and insensitive remarks and demands, the damage that he had done to his host’s pride would have partially been undone and his answer may have been different. Yet this would not last, Rick has proved himself time and time again that he is toxic to the survival of anyone around him. The acceptance of Glenn proves that Hershell is capable of compassion and is lenient in his demands. If Rick had appealed to him in a way that come across as nonthreatening instead of unleashing his emotional and hormonally unstable wife on an already grief stricken man, he seals his fate on the farm and ensures that he is no longer, by any means welcome there. The respect that should have been shown to Hershell is completely absent throughout the group’s stay.
“When you judge others , you do not define them: you define yourself” - Earl Nightingale. In a society where people are still judging other people to try to make them look good is a low blow, you know you will not be able to judge them on their actions but on something they were born with, the color of their skin or the way the look. This is why discrimination happens every day, bigots must have a scapegoat to blow all the stress they have. But in reality they are not defining the other person because those are petty words, but the bigots actions while insulting the poor man will define the bigot . Once people have learned about how to blow all the stress they have, we can almost act as one.
He takes Haimon’s well-spoken remark, and turns it into an insult against his son’s age. This is something that a character lacking self-confidence would argue as soon as their motives are challenged. Confrontation should not insight insult, it should insight intelligent and respectful conversation. It might be slightly more normal to argue with your family over serious issues, but Kreon upholds his undesirable traits even when speaking to the world’s most renowned and respected seer of the future, Tiresias. Tiresias, old and blind, has a guide lead him to Thebes to tell Kreon that his actions have upset the gods, and that he must free Antigone and allow her to give Polyneices a proper burial (998-1032).
