“Whenever you’re in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude.” William James explains that positive attitude can help in many situations. In “The diary of Anne Frank” by Anne Frank, she keeps her head held high in the Annex and has a positive attitude. A letter from “Dear Ms. Breed” by Louise Ogawa, has a similar response.
In “The Diary of a Young Girl” the author states, “But as you can see, Kitty, I 'm still alive, and that 's the main thing” (Frank). Since Anne had a positive attitude about the situation she was in, it helped her realize that she should be thankful for the little things. It also helped her to forget about the hardships and celebrate the jubilant times. In “Dear Miss Breed” the author states as she was on her way to a Japanese internment camp, “One of the most beautiful scenery was when crossing a bridge which was right above the Colorado River” (Oppenheim).
With a child in her belly, having been separated from her husband, travelling on a ship where nobody knows her merely days after she was almost re-enslaved by Appleby, Aminata still maintains an optimistic state of mind.

Moreover, despite the cold and bitter atmosphere in Nova Scotia, Aminata uses the word “bright” to imply that the birth of her child would bring her contentment and warmth, once again suggesting a positive mindset. Hence, Aminata’s prolonged existence is achieved through patience and
She also found a way to love again. She is a hero to the people around her because of her inspiring battle. Her journey gives a much needed message of self worth and respect to the public. Heroes don’t have to be limited to the ones in our books and movies. They can be the people we see on the street.
The best way to respond to conflict is through positivity and optimism, as they can provide health benefits, stress-relief, and solace during times of conflict, such as how Anne Frank and Winston Churchill did. To start, Anne Frank responded to conflict by staying optimistic and having a positive outlook on things even though she faced tough circumstances. As the text says, “I don 't think I 'll ever feel at home in this house, but that doesn 't mean I hate it. It 's more like being on vacation in some strange pension” ( Frank).

The characters all change and improve their personal self esteem, as when Sachi has learned to love herself and accept the beauty of life and find herself through the actions of Matsu, and the words of Stephen. Matsu has affected Sachi not by what he claimed, but by what he had done; Matsu cared for Sachi and showed empathy and respect where nobody else had, making it all the more valuable, and that gradually assisted Sachi in having hope for herself and for her dignity. Throughout the forty or more years that Sachi had been afflicted with leprosy, she went on that journey of self-actualization, and Matsu helped her through it, through his simple thoughts and actions, as when he came to Sachi’s rescue when she ran away from her own death, when

I have informed my mentor about Mrs. A’s concerns and she was given comprehensive information about the support groups and organisations that are there to help her and her family during her admission (NICE, 2011). Besides, providing therapeutic communication to encourage the patient to give consent to the admission is an act of beneficence because it prevents causing harms and improves the patient’s wellbeing (Edwards, 2009). It was a good experience for me since I have learned the importance of communication as one of the fundamental aspects in nursing (Balzer Riley, 2000). I have learned that therapeutic communication works wonders. I was complimented by my mentor who boosted my confidence and encouraged me to continue doing better since provision of reassurance and honest compliment from the preceptor is a foundation for student development and independence (Ingwerson, 2014).
