In his classical historical fiction play, Cyrano de Bergerac (1897), Edmond Rostand outlines the life of a charismatic Gascon officer and romantic poet named Cyrano who is plagued by an unappealing physical attribute to show the insecurities of society and the struggle between appearance and candor. By presenting romantic conflicts, Rostand allows the characters to reveal their inner selves and adapt into developed human beings with powerful and poor aspects. He utilizes symbolism, allusion, and characterization to reinforce his audiences’ awareness to the characters’ dynamic transfigurations. Rostand enlightens his audience by accentuating that the true nature of a person lays in their actions and intentions not aesthetics. Firstly, Rostand encompasses symbolism highlight the adaptation of Cyrano and De Guiche.
The hardest part about a negative or difficult situation is finding the courage to get out of that perverse environment. Dimmesdale and Hester Prynne unlike many others possess these qualities making their situation for the better. Finding a gleam of hope or happiness in a hard situation can be the first step to a more positive outcome, but you must first, find the
Being in a state of isolation, whether it be physically or emotionally, can be tough on a person and potentially lead to self destruction. The ability to openly communicate and express your emotions is key to escaping the hardships of isolation. Today, we live in a developed society where we are encouraged to express our opinions and therefore, become more understanding of one another. However, many remain silent, what is it exactly that makes communication so difficult that we would prefer to suffer rather than giving a voice to your thoughts? Neglecting your true emotions and being dishonest with yourself will inevitably lead to a life full of distress and despair.
While it’s natural to try to protect people from negative experiences it can make it difficult for them to tackle life’s larger problems down the line. Everyone needs the opportunity to build their confidence as well as their psychological strength, both of these are necessary to succeed. By shielding someone from life’s realities we set them up for failure as they are more vulnerable. So, while you made it through your parent’s divorce, being bullied, or moving that wasn’t the same level of trauma or adversity as someone else may have faced. There is a stark difference between these situations and physical or sexual abuse, or losing a loved one at a young age.
The world is full of challenges, obstacles, and difficulties. The human being is created in order to tolerate these difficulties, and overcome their obstacles. However, some people who have a weak personality cannot endure the difficulties of life, and even they do not attempt to deal with these challenges. On the other hand, the people whose personality is very strong, and who can hold on the life always make efforts to find a way through barriers in their life. They try to seek an opportunity in their obstacles.
People abandoning their objectives believe that they will not attain success even if they have paid much effort. However, they will draw a lesson about why they fail and when they set another goal, they can know how to handle problems or difficulties and this time they will have high possibility of fulfilling your goal. In order to
They believe that "You feel anxiety because you recognize that you and you alone are responsible for your actions." (Panza, 2). These decisions impact the rest of people's lives because through these decisions, they are creating a path for the rest of their life. "Your smallest action sets off another somewhere else, and is set off by it." (Stoppard, 34).
Everything that we feel in those moments seems sad to us, all those questions and feeling comes in front of your eyes. All those memories and attachments, in fact, we suffer because we miss those good moments. We try to compare those moments with our present, but no matter what we do, we knew that we would never be able to bring those moments back. Moments like this remind us why we need to appreciate our present. In fact, those moments which seem reasonable to you might make a huge impact in the future.
In order to be punctual and successful in life one must respect and follow time. If a person does not respect and value time he or she will always lack in some way or the other. From this harsh but valuable experience I learnt that no matter where you go you will always have to deal with people who may lack in social skills and may not want to blend in as much as you do. Even though people may not realize it but they might hurt others feelings unknowingly due to the lack of communication or social skills by ignoring or just not replying to a question, comment or concern. English 100 was not the only course where I faced such difficulty but there were many other courses which made me go through such experiences of not having as hard working group members as me.
In today’s generation, we’re used to hiding ourselves. Either for the fear of judgment by people or by ourselves. We’re always afraid to find who we truly are and tend to mistake the person we’ve created for the world to see for our true selves. This is the most important challenge in finding yourself; to not be deceived by who we think we are, but to dig deeper into our soul.“The only journey is the journey within.”-Rainer Maria Rilke. Out of the many journeys I’ve taken in my life, the hardest one was the journey of self-discovery in CORE1010.
In “Pleasantville” and “As in the beginning” the characters experience difficult situations, making all the things being hard to conclude, or come back for the natural state. Both have something to miss, about the old part of life. They could give up, but they didn’t, because they knew that all the things will be better or get in a good place in the end, but not for sure. When David and his sister went to Pleasantville, they didn’t know how to come back, they passed for big and hard moments. They were differents, they knew and saw things that no one could see, making they showing the truth about the world, because in this ville, the fire didn’t exist.
If we do not experience different things, then we become stagnant and will not grow in our everyday lives. It becomes very important to recognize when there is a need for change. When our lives plateau or we recognize that there is a need to improve in some way, then we need to take the necessary steps to make us happy and satisfied. While it is important to learn how to handle different situations, there are many times where we don’t necessarily desire change. There are times when we have no control over what is happening in our lives.
The stoics philosopher believed in life, many obstacles will be thrown our way that are not within our control. In many cases, these incidents can make one’s life difficult-whether it be by death, illness, unemployment or a natural disaster. Unfortunately, the Stoics imply that we have little to no control over the difficult situations that confront us. The one thing that is feasible to do is to act in a way that promotes a change in one’s emotions and desires in our actions. On this view, the stoics worldview is rational and structured.
Failure is often viewed as some sort of horrific monster that must be escaped; it doesn’t have to be this way. Anytime we don’t achieve our goals it hurts; that’s just a simple truth, however oftentimes it is nearly impossible for us to separate the temporary heartbreak and despair from failure from something that is more permanent. Instead of letting the fear of a temporary setback take over we should look forward towards the future. Even though it is often nearly impossible to realize in the moment every failure brings a chance for growth and change. Arguably, the most important part of moving on from the initial horrid feelings of failure is learning how to better manage and deal with them.
