This quote was meaningful to me because this quote can relate to my life and how when you focus your attention on one specific thing, you tend to spend less attention on others. In my life, spending more time on my favorite sport will improve my skills but lessen my attention to another area of my life like school or socially, but not paying attention to others socially can also impact your life as well. A goof balance is needed, but this quote is proving how what you pay attention to is more prominent within our life and we tend to ignore and pay less attention to other
However, many people think that with approval respect follows, and that’s not how it turns out in many cases. Society has made people believe that by being materialistic or by trying to compete with one another approval will eventually come. Even though this is what people may think, they sometimes forget that by trying to accomplish something they’re not, respect is lost tremendously in the process. I have never been the type to take offense or worry about what people have to say about me because I’ve always put myself and what matters first, you can call it selfish, but that’s how things get accomplished. Whether it has been helping those who are less fortunate, successfully accomplishing an educational goal, or just by being accepted for who I am, it has brought me self acceptance.
I am putting my self-esteem at risk each time I give someone the opportunity to provide constructive criticism. Constructive criticism is supposed to be beneficial but, I believe that it is a form of bullying. During previous experiences, I have been told that something is wrong with me and I need to change it or people will never accept me for who I truly am and it hurts each time I get ridiculed about anything. However, in order to overcome my issue with constructive criticism, I have to realize that it will help me become a better person. I have to process the fact that everyone is not verbally assaulting me by giving me advice.
Even though people can 't help but let things get to them, they can shape there perception into something that can help them instead of focusing on things that bring them down because it will help them be more successful , they won 't focus on the negative , and it can help them live a better life . In The Achievement Habit, Bernard Roth persuades his readers that there life has no meaning unless they give it meaning. It 's a very unusual message for an author to send to his readers but throughout the chapter he uses the rhetorical triangle ethos, logos & pathos to really get the audience to understand his message. Many people let a certain situation ruin there day, and Roth explains why life is just simply better without giving it meaning. Roth states that he 's a Professor at Stanford University and has been teaching for 52 years.
They both decided to take those circumstances and make them corrupt them. They did not decide to make the best of them, by learning from them. I plan to make the best out of my circumstances because instead of letting them corrupt me, I can learn from them. For instance, because someone in my family didn’t make the best decisions, I can learn to not make those decisions when I get older. I can also move on from it, because I have learned that focusing on it my whole life and trying to correct it, will only make things worse.
I couldn’t live without them, but both also had problems of their own; And being the person I am, instead of helping myself out first, I let my depression get worse and worse in exchange of helping them. I was happy of the fact that I was doing some part in them getting better in someway. I didn’t want to repeat what i felt like I did to my other friend. After a while I got to the point where I had to go to a therapist because I couldn’t handle the pain. I ended up telling my mom I needed a therapist and she got worried.
In the article “Stop Trying to be Happy,” Mark Manson states that nowadays, people are striving so hard to be happy, while happiness is something in their self. However, most of them do not realize that when they do something they like, that is not a happiness, it just a pleasure. The problem why people are unhappy is, they always do something on other people expectations, not struggle to reach their expectation. Moreover, negative emotion is important to release unnecessary thing in our self, it keeps a happiness steady. Most people, always do something that is hard for themselves, but they keep try to do it, even they are fail.
They get rid of emotions they don 't want you to have. Finally, they get rid of many different activities they don 't like. But in our world, we have all these things, and they will never be taken away from us. This was my final example of our differences between The Giver and our society. There are some similarities between The Giver and our society, but there are many more differences, like families, rules, and personal freedoms.
humans are extremely complicated beings, ones own idea of happiness could conflict or hurt other people. no matter how much effort and time we spend contemplating how to save the world, some people can not perform a utilitarian calculation for every decision in their life. ' 'People too easily talk themselves into doing foolish things for the sake of good results ' ' (Gensler, 119). a collective rational set of guidelines set by maybe a government will rule society into a better place , if everyone really knew what needed to be done they would be more understanding of the pleasure and pain impact on their neighbor and more willing to follow the rules for others sake even at the expense of there own happiness. when I think about a rule utilitarian society in modern times, think about a woman in Saudi Arabia and the rules based on religious law and reason.
I didn’t want to voice my opinion because I was worried that it wouldn’t be the “right” opinion. I started to let others define me. I overcame this by reminding myself that it was alright for me to be myself and that if I don’t stay true to myself I will end up becoming a different version of someone else. I wouldn’t be myself. I wouldn’t be happy and I realized that all I really wanted was happiness.
At the end, going through rehab, yes, he was miserable, didn’t want to recover, but just wanted to be a part of violence again, he was able to bounce back to the person he was before. Then he started telling people his story because it inspired some and people were able to reflect on themselves. Just one cause can’t be a bad effect, because that cause can explain why you are the person today. Also during that cause, whatever you did doesn’t define you, the effect is the results of how you are that
But when I am alone, things are different. I tend to harbor a lot of apprehension and anxiety over things that I can’t control. I sometimes let my problems define who I am. If I am wronged, I can easily become deeply emotionally wounded for a long period of time. If I get upset over one thing, It is very easy for me to start thinking about all of the other negative things going on in my life.
If they are not bothered than the world would have been even worse than it is today. Montag did a lot in his life because he was bothered. There was things that were not good like becoming a fugitive, but if he was never bothered he would not
If he alters his thoughts by at least trying to understand that others are also having a bad day then maybe he will be able to go through the day without the need of wanting to remind himself how disgusting everyone is because they are disturbing him. By changing your perspective on others the less miserable you will be and the more you will be able to endure the tedious, irritating moments in your life. Even though David makes it sound easy, it isn’t because that is how we are accustomed to think are entire life, our default
The first reason I need to conform to the in-n-out ideal is that I need to be seen as sociable. Everyone that I work with are very much extrovert while I am an introvert, so “in a complete betrayal” of my actual personality I had to be like one of them. When I first got hired people would give me strange looks because I wouldn’t say hello to anyone I would just go right into work, but later on I learned that it is important to say your hellos before starting work. At work “to play coy” was not an option, but to be spontaneous and outspoken was. In a matter of months I was “no longer silent”; in fact, I had transformed into this social butterfly.
