Religion could certainly help this issue we face today, with the ethical approach of these religions could save people from making the wrong decision and leading to regret of their decisions. Once you have a sex change it is impossible to change back. People need to be aware of this and with the help of religion it could help
I personally found this essay enlightening. The reason for that is because I myself am at fault of being like the people that Tan speaks about. Because there have been times that I have been unable to understand certain people because of their accents. That I would almost completely ignore the parents and speak through their children to have an understanding of what they needed assistance with. After reading this my eyes were opened to how that affects them, and that I need to be more patient with listening to others and putting more effort into understanding
Here we can clearly see how Fadiman wants to show how people should treat others from a different religion. She says that she needs to “more like a Hmong” to understand their culture, religion and traditions. Doing so will help her understand why it is that they do what they do and why they have little trust on American doctors and medicine. If the doctors at the Merced hospital had tried to put themselves in Lia’s parent’s shoes to try and understand their culture they would of been able to come up with solutions that would of helped Lia more in the long run. Simply ignoring the fact that they are dealing with a completely different and trying to do what they can under the circumstances they should of been able to work with the parents.

To support this he tells the reader to ask this question to themselves, “Am I attracted to this new tradition because of the essential teachings; or, is it because I find the rituals more fascinating; or, is it because I imagine this new tradition will be less demanding?”(445). If the person still converts after thinking the question through then he thinks it is essential that he does not comment on his previous faith. Throughout the essay Dalai Lama has given the reasons why religion plays an important role to shape the person. Every religion has an essential part to share an enriched diversity.

Joyner personally makes me think twice about how I should treat others. People should not do things with the preconceived notion that they will receive something in return. I am glad to have someone like him in my life because he teaches me how to care for others and I’ve grown as a person. Kenneth Russell Joyner III is a true definition of a real life
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.
Is cultural competence more important than counseling competence (Sue text and lecture notes)? I believe that cultural competence and counseling competence go hand in hand.

Overall, my persuasive essay is effective in recognizing different positions on the situation, and by using an article from Calvin 's website to educate my audience on the benefits. Because I recognize that many people oppose due to their lack of education on the topic, this essay is capable of encouraging the opposition to reconsider their stance.

I live by confessing my sins to God and asking for his forgiveness. (1 John 1:9) because I know that the mind and the flesh can be weak and temptation can be our downfall.
My societal responsibility once I complete my degree would be to help others be the best that they can be no matter their environment or mental situation.
