Although some may argue that the short story, “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been” by Joyce Carol Oates, reveals that Connie’s materialistic ideals drove her actions which caused her ultimate demise, this position limits the importance of Connie’s repressed thoughts. Her repressed thoughts, identified through daydreams and inner dialogue, reveal her psychological efforts to protect herself from the imminent danger ahead. These thoughts form as she strives to achieve a differentiation of self from her older sister, yet her newfound identity becomes superficially based off how she believes she should behave around her peers. When Arnold Friend appears at her doorstep, even though Connie deploys her defense mechanisms of repression and denial, she remains vulnerable to Arnold because she does not acknowledge her repressed thoughts and only considers his superficial appearance. Once Connie’s repressed thoughts surface, her reality anxiety allows her to uncover Arnold Friend’s true intentions with her and shed light on Connie’s fatal flaw: her differentiation of self.
What is being loyal to someone, how can it be seen? Why is it that when one is betrayed, that is all that they think about night and day? The truth is loyalty cannot be seen but only felt between people who have faith within one another. As for betrayal, it can affect one so severely that it cannot leave their mind, especially if a loved one has caused it. In “Choices” by Susan Kerslake and “The Veldt” by Ray Bradbury, the authors suggest that a person can change based solely on their needs, and question their ability to stay loyal or betray.
The life that Nieve lived before made her want to change. The people Nieve has surrounded herself with also make her a different person. It is shown here, “If I want to feel a part of ‘this world’, I need to stay in this circle and not feel so disappointed, much less lose heart”(pg.200). In order for her to feel like she fits in, she lets the people she hangs out around shape her to be quiet and kept to herself. It also makes her another person who is not at all herself, and forces her to keep her true feelings in her diary.
The truth is more important than idealism when accepting self. From knowing the truth one’s confidence is shattered and their idealistic façade is broken. In the short story “Miss Brill” by Katherine Mansfield, the author demonstrates that if a need is not met to a certain extent of the individual, then the individual will conjure up a false reality which occurs from the individual’s wants and needs. The sad denial of the truth leads down to a path of delusion and essentially corrupting their original sense of self. This is seen through the protagonist, Miss Brill, who believes in the power of youth.
In other words, emotions can either be good or bad. I feel that this is something that should be avoid because, when we refer to certain emotions as good or bad, we develop this concept that it is right or wrong to feel a certain way. This may result in some individuals feeling ashamed to feel “bad.” We have created a society where you force positivity upon people and shame those that are not positive. In doing this, we create a strict environment that fails to consider the diversity in emotion.
I believe that social injustice in the view of both sides cause them to view each other in this bias; therefore, both sides would instinctively commit these actions in a hostile situation, but claim them as self defense. The argument that I will never agree on is her idea that “if
7). These terms create a “pejorative light on presumed characteristics rather than on the nature of the contact between client and practitioner” (Rooney, 1992, p. 7). This may lead to a SW’s “frustration over the lack of fit of involuntary clients with voluntary therapy concepts [which] contributes to practitioners blaming the clients” (Rooney, 1992, p. 13). Whereas, involuntary clients may choose not to participate due to a wide variety of reasons based on their upbringing or history/past experience. One example that involuntary clients may not be willing to participate may be due to the way that they view the SW’s authority/power, the fact that the SW may be “just another SW” in their eyes, or that they see the SW as a representation of the system (Quartz, 2018).

The criticism is directed against the clarity of concept and observation of stigma defined in different ways. The perception is characterized as an attitude of unfavorably treat to a person because of the characteristics that define it. The sociologist Goffman pointed that an individual may be stigmatized in society for defining appearances, for example the individual is not liked and blamed in relationships with others. Adams and Sydie (513) mentioned that “the stigmatized individual also tends to “hold the same beliefs about identity” as the “normals”. As a result, the stigmatized individual perceives that whatever others profess, they do not really ‘accept’ him and are not ready to make contact with him on equal
In both The Summer Prince and The Odyssey the protagonists are able to save themselves and help members of their society through their special power or unconventionality. During The Odyssey, Odysseus’s special power is his strategy, while in The Summer Prince, June’s unconventionality is her art. Both texts show the main character’s ability to use their unique powers as a way to aid themselves. Odysseus saves himself through his smart tactics and June fixes herself through her artwork about society. While using her power to help her own self, June also utilizes her art to help others.
“Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known.” Luke 12:2. Here the Gospel Luke is explaining that the truth behind a person is always revealed. Those who pretend to be Christians will soon be brought to light and seen for who they really are. There are many Christians who do not comply with what the word of God says and try to hide their sin.
Chapter two in the textbook Reflect & Relate an Introduction to Interpersonal Communication by Steven McCornack talks all about what “self” is and how to achieve complete fulfillment for one’s self which is also known as self-actualization. The components of self, as described in the book are, “ . . . self-awareness, self-concept, and self-esteem” (McCornack 39). Self-awareness is the idea in which one can take a moment to move feelings, beliefs, and other external influences aside and just evaluate oneself in a holistic perspective that is not skewed by opinions of others, etc. Having the ability to actually think about who one is brings a lot of power and mental stability in such a way that allows for improvement.
