First, the theory of ethical egoism. According to this theory, “actions are morally right because they maximize self-interest” (Farias, 2012, slide 6). When occupational therapists agree to perform duties or work on skills that are outside of the OT scope of services, they are working to promote their own self-interests and well-being. It feels good to help others and when we believe that we are going above and beyond to keep our clients happy, we are doing what is in our best interests. Since ethical egoism states that “it is individualistic, and the right thing to do is maximize one’s own utility,” then this dilemma holds true (Burgess-Jackson, 2013, p. 532).
Evolve into Having Self-Awareness Being self-aware simply means that you have a keen understanding of your own personality. That includes your positive and negative traits, your thoughts and beliefs, your feelings, and your inspiration. It would be easier for you to understand others when you are self-aware. You will also be able to tell how they see you in return. Most people believe that they have a good sense of self-awareness, but it would be best to check at a comparative scale to see where you fall on it in contrast with others.
When we can see what is needed in a situation and start to do something about it, then we can become energised and find a meaningful purpose. It can lead to a sense of accomplishment, the appreciation from a neighbour, or the interest of a fellow worker - all meaningful experiences. Also our ideals and ethical principles of living can develop and take on new meaning as we try to follow them in daily life. Illusion of condemnation A third kind of illusion that leads to depression is to do with a feeling of guilt. One may have done something about which one is truly ashamed or on the other hand be unfairly blaming oneself; one's self-assessment may have been realistic or unrealistic.
Another article used is another part of Ayn Rand’s Philosophy but on the term “self-interest”. Having self-interest is part of being human and “the purpose of morality, she argues, is to teach us what is in our self-interest, what produces happiness”, this sentence also ties with the words “self” and “ego”. Having an ego or being an egoist has its limits, though. People should care for themselves, but also care for others because ego is more of a balance in which one can’t work without the other. The beneficial side of ego is that it “constitutes the essential identity of a human being” (Rand Introduction) but the detrimental side, according to visionlaunch.com, is that it can “completely eliminate objectivity”.
“Everyone makes mistakes in life but that doesn’t mean they have to pay for them the rest of their life. Sometimes good people make bad choices, it doesn’t mean they are bad. It means they 're human.” (Lovethispic) Second chances mean an opportunity to start over and come clean again. Second chances may not sound pleasant, but sometimes it pays off. In my opinion, I believe everyone deserves a second chance.
State-Trait Depression Inventory (STDI) was used to measure depression (Spielberger, 2003). A 20-item questionnaire was administered that corresponds to the depression subscale of State-Trait Personality Inventory (STPI). It employed a four-point Likert scale with 1 meaning “almost always” and 4 meaning “almost never”. The Cronbach’s alpha coefficient for the scale in the present study is 0.93. A subscale of Ryff’s Scale of Psychological Well-Being entitled Positive Relations with Others was employed (Ryff, 1989), using a six-point Likert scale (0 = totally disagree, 5 = totally agree).
How do examples of power, trust, and difference affect communication? What examples illustrate your point? *An example of power that affects communication is the ability to influence people. Speaking with honesty gives people acknowledgement of the differences between the actions and their own interpretations of life. Having power can be great because people feel the power and take on new challenges to better their lives, life without a risk will not get you very far.
Bias is a shift in a way someone perceives something or someone. Or when you favor something over another thing.

We all know that when someone talks to us in an uplifting and positive manner we feel better about that person and also ourselves and thus we are more willing to act in a positive manner, but on the contrary if someone speaks to us in a degrading manner we feel bad about ourselves and are not as willing to help or be our best person. It is the same when we choose to speak kindly to others; the better choice of words we make the better we feel and the freer we will become. Freedom, and the loss of freedom, comes through both the way we act and the way we speak. If we want to be free we will choose actions and words that help others thus in turn help our inner
