Susanna plans to stay only a few weeks, but she ends up staying almost nearly two years. Some of the patients include: Georgina is a pathological liar, Polly who has been badly scarred by fire, Daisy who will not eat in the presence of other people. Lisa who is diagnosed as a sociopath, the biggest and most problematic for the staff and the most persuasive influence on the other girls in the hospital. Susanna forms a close relationship with Lisa and the girls. Lisa however, is known to make continuous efforts to escape the institution and she somewhat takes Susanna under her rule.
In Woolf’s essay, she observes death and comes to accept that we will all experience it at some point, which in turn adds a significant amount of meaning to life. Rich encourages readers not to waste their life by taking the easy way out and failing to be educated, but rather to live for themselves and pursue an education. Until a woman takes responsibility for herself and gets an education, she is not fully experiencing life and is, therefore, missing out. A waste of a mind is equated to a waste of life by Rich as she says “our bodies and minds are inseparable in this life” (299). This idea holds true for the duration of our time on Earth, and supports Woolf’s observations of the transition from life to death.
Covey explains Habit Two as “Beginning with the End in Mind,” meaning to think about one’s ultimate goals and live a principle-centered life (2004). Yvonne was very passionate about her values and it is clear that she lives with them in her center every day. She explained that she wants everyone to see consistency in how she acts and her values “whether [she’s] at work, at home or at church” she acts the same and values characteristics like respect, punctuality, kindness, and perseverance (Y. Mcbarnett, personal communication, February 14, 2018). Being principle-centered allows her to have clarity in the face of adversity and paved her way to
However, Delaney thinks that Christine is very detailed in her writing in order to prove her position. “Christine insists that an author take full responsibility for every word written”(Delaney 324). Christine supports that women are strong and active in the society building a good relationship with other individuals including their family. Christine disproves the fact that women should not be staying home all day doing house chores rather they should go out and work just as
At this point, the individual has solid and stable decision about what values, beliefs, and goals are more important to them and what motivation will guide their life after a period of active exploration and intense commitment. In order to reach identity achievement, the person must feel positive and self-assured respecting their principles and decisions. Studies done have proved that individuals in the state of achievement are healthier than others on distinct aspects such as achievement motivation, moral reasoning, intimacy with peers, and career maturity. By way of illustration, a young lady that has voted for the first time, but she didn’t do it before reading about all the contestants and what they believe about the recent issues that the country is facing such as gun control and what is best for her and her community. Besides, she decided what is the best candidate according to her beliefs and values.
While she is trying to get a plan of marrying anyone she wants, she helps people she goes through lots of experiences. For these experiences she starts being less selfish and self-centered.

The experience that Catherine went through is receiving a
She wants to form a family and have a successful career that makes herself proud of all that she has struggle and accomplished. We all have a story to tell and dreams we all would like to achieve, Aura’s biography is just another story being told. As the bright girl that she is Aura is capable of anything she sets her mind to. She is happily looking forward to achieving her goals and proving to herself she could have all along. She takes her education serious, yet enjoys being the young lady she is growing up to be and is having fun along the way learning from her mistakes and improving her weaknesses in her
Margaret Mead states, “But while we often rejoice in the success of people far removed from ourselves-people who work in another profession, live in another community, or are endowed with a talent that we do not especially want for ourselves-we tend to regard the success of people close at hand, within our own small group, as a threat." I cannot agree with this more, honestly. I think people tend to look at the people around them who are successful as a threat becasue they know they can be compared to them. For instance, a girl in high school who is extremely pretty will threaten all the other girls. That is simply becasue the other girls will feel like they will be compared to the really pretty girl.
Hooks claims that Sandberg's finances and popularity have helped her in her success, most women don't have the same opportunities that Sandberg does. Her essay is not efficient enough, since she does not gives new solutions, she speaks about old ideas that many people have tried to change already. She also can't represent or speak for all women when she has been in a very good position, women from other races or countries can not success even when they have the ambition to achieve their goals. Sandberg spoke about equality, when she apparently wants to be better than men. In order to improve equality between gender, we should start with respect in the actual society.
Using just this, comparison to others, Jeannette recalls her family’s past and the struggle they went through in her memoir, The Glass Castle. She inadvertently teaches the audience her meaning of resilience. The capability of a person to adjust to new settings, a person using their peers to grow stronger, and a person staying loyal to the one’s who were there for them all contribute to a one’s attitude towards life and how they model resilience First off, adjusting to new setting guides someone to be more open to change and enjoy change much better. Showing resilience by being able to enjoy what’s next, even when it is worse than what was
