That I have this dedication, this need for things to be a certain way, as a perfectionist would, but my methods are far from “perfect”. They tell me I’m comfortable to be around, and have open ears to whoever wants to talk, even if I don’t know a thing, or even care about the subject matter. My words are well thought out, and insightful, and I appreciate the connection of the little things. Yet I couldn’t think of anything that I am. So after hours of talking to myself out loud, and making jokes; I was ready to give up.
Having a choice or a say in an important matter is something most people treasure; the fact that we have control over our future. To other, these decisions can be more burdensome than liberating. They can cause one great stress and anxiety if one sees himself unfit to make that weighing decision. Overly-anxious people prefer to give up this decision-making power to another trusted person. The patients Ken Kesey describes in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest are content giving up this privilege that everyone is entitled to, until Randle McMurphy makes them aware of what they’re missing out on.
There are still many parts of this chapter that confuse me, such as the difference between companionship and friendship, but for the most part, the rest of the chapter was comprehensible. Lewis touched on some really interesting points about the need of friendship in our lives. He argues that we do not need friendships in order to survive, but I beg to differ. For starters, many of the friendships that I am blessed to be a part of are almost categorized as familial friendships. In other words, I view many, if not all of my very close friends as family; I would do anything for them!
I am thankful for many things my family, friends, belongings ,and my home. And sometimes I take those things for granted and dont appreciate the things I have. I am thankful for my family because they are always there when I need them. They always help me when I need it the most and consider my opninons. Sometimes Ill get mad at them or ignore them out of anger because they didnt consider my idea but its fine in the end.
So in a real life situation, God will help my enemy that I highly dislike, but when I need his help, instead of condemning me for hating my brother his arms will be wide open for both of us. This message can also apply to my friends in a way that friendship works. So when a couple of my friends are in need one will choose to help both and not just help one just how God did with the Ninevites
Many people think that some actions can be forgiven and while others think it cannot. Forgiveness helps everybody feel light and get rid of hard feelings that haunt everybody. Forgiveness creates positive feeling in one’s mind. People who are close, hurt or betray an individual is difficult to forgive. This is prevalent in the story where in Amir and Hassan were best
The friends I have now remind me of my friends I had in North Syracuse. It is funny, but I tend to see similarities between people that I would have never seen if I had not moved. They are all their own person, but it has shown me the types of people I get along well with. My friends here in Ravena also challenge me. A few of us often disagree, mainly me and Laya, but that has made me realize how important it is to have friends that will be completely honest with you no matter what.
We all like to feel happy, its an emotion humans like and it would be amazing that we could feel happy all the time, but unfortunately that is not the case. We have other emotions that we have to experience during our lifetime. It is true that people do not like to feel sadness, but it is important that sometimes we are not cheerful about every situation in life. Even when we do not like something it is an important part of our lives, this is the case whit sadness. When w feel sad we tent to cry, which can help us feel happy, it give us relief.
But I think the most common criteria I could come up with is a friend who is funny and positive, that in the future will always support them and not bad-mouthing about their best friends behind their back. It is also the matter of trustworthiness. People who betray other people, especially in this case best friends are just a major turn off. Because trust values the most in everybody’s friendships. If we can’t trust other people or be trusted by other people.
Instead of having tattoos, doing drugs and engaging into troubles because of my situation, I’ve made my family my motivation to achieve my dreams in life. I just accepted the fact and stood strong. I showed them my love for I know, they are doing the same. I never took them for granted because I’m quite certain as to how bad it feels. My family is not perfect but that’s what makes it unique.
The type of friend I am considered to be is very loyal and although I may be closed off and protective in the beginning after I can trust you I can be a very trustworthy. I also read my personality type has no particular preference on who I am friends with and that I try to avoid conflict at all costs, which is something I can relate to.
This energy sometimes rubs off on us and we treat this person just how they treat us and at the end of the day no one is happy. I believe as future therapist nonverbal communications can make or break you. I have had patients that wanted to give me attitude and wanted to be hard to deal with, but I always made it a point to redirect them and change the session around in a positive way.
As I go through this assessment, it has shown about two way friendship. I am friendly person so I can make friend easily. The other thing that I notice in this assessment is how better I become friends with most of the people. Friendships with people that I have known for a long time can have a big impact on my life. I always say sorry when I do something wrong and I tend to forgive my friends when he or she does something wrong to me.
I’m glad that you broke down on what sympathy and empathy are, there are a lot of people who get these two mixed up. But as humans we will always have sympathy for others, but for most of us we will never know how to empathize with others. Having both of them are great to have in the Human Service field but we cannot let it consume us, we were called upon to help them in the best we can for them. But you make great points in the scriptures that you use, every day I wake up and tell myself to become more like God. In the Human Services field we are there to improve the situations of others, and to be able to help them when they cannot help themselves anymore.
The response that I was thinking in my head didn’t really come true. Instead, I was really showered by love, understanding, and a little of adjustments here and there. But people were still accepting of me which I was surprised from where I was raised because almost anyone who was different would have ridiculed. So, the life lesson was to be not afraid of what people think about
