In an environment where individuals always suffer from their actions, certain characteristics become eliminated. For example, happiness is a common, yet vital characteristic that people lack in this type of environment. The result of happiness being removed causes people to fear making any choice, as these individuals are aware of possible consequences. In a society that eliminates happiness, also does not allow anyone to leave a state of unhappiness. This concept is shown in Fahrenheit 451, where author Ray Bradbury warns and messages to the reader that censorship of knowledge among a society leads to destruction of individual thoughts and individual beliefs, which will ultimately cause unhappiness and a lack of progress.
When we lead ourselves to believe our illusions, we can find ourselves trapped in an unrealistic perception of life. These illusions are attempts to distract ourselves from the reality that we are not satisfied with life. When these illusions turn out to be false, we often attack those who revealed the illusion to us. This is perhaps to hide our anguish, and feelings of inadequacy. These illusions are almost always damaging to us; however, to view life in a realist perspective is often too hard.
It starts with him concluding that suffering must be the purpose of human life, because there is evidently too much of it in the world for this not to be the case. According to him, happiness is just the absence of pain, which is why our expectations of it are usually too high. And when we find a brief respite from pain, we are thrown into another state of suffering – boredom. Yet, Schopenhauer views misery as necessary, since if all our desires were instantly fulfilled, we would lose our sanity due to lack of purpose. This is why the philosopher believes that non-existence is preferable.
The byproduct of being rigid is causing stress to ourselves and to others around us.

And at the end of a person’s life, the one who chooses to live weak, rather than strong, will have had a better life. This passage shows how weakness is a good thing, and when you allow yourself to be weak the pressures of being strong are eliminated, resulting in a more fulfilling
Lastly, when put in those conditions and treated so poorly, you begin to think all hope is lost. When someone truly thinks that there is no way out of a situation, one solution can be to give up. Giving up is not exactly easy, but it most commonly occurs when that person no longer cares about the outcome and feels worthless. The circumstances can be so bad that you may even think dying might be better than living through it. When someone treats you like dirt and doesn't care about you, it's hard to care about yourself.
With knowledge, there's always room for knowledge that is not wanted, meaning knowledge that there are bad people, things, etc. in life. This can cause a sense of hopelessness, because when new, horrible experiences occur in people's lives, it gives them knowledge that they don't want: the knowledge of problems and failures. People don’t want to know that they have failed, or are in a situation out of their control, so they feel like they dont have the power or means to change it. The Man know he can't change how the world they live in is, and knows that all he can do is make sure his child is safe and alive. He feels like there is no point to this life full of hunger, cold temperatures, and murder, but keeps going for The Boy.

If I could go back and change things I certainly would however it is now too late.

The balance is essential between both because if he practices generosity it becomes so self-consuming that the more you practice it, the less you will be able to continue the practice, this is due to the use of all resource and prevents the continued generosity; this would inevitably lead to the state despising the prince. “Therefore, it is shrewder to cultivate a reputation for meanness, which will lead to notoriety but not hatred. This is better than being forced, through wanted to be considered generous, to incur a reputation for rapacity, which will lead to notoriety and to hatred as well”. Cruelty and mercifulness, A question arises whether it is better to be loved or feared, or vice versa? “My view is that it is desirable to be both loved and feared; but it is difficult to achieve both and, if one of them has to be lacking, it is much safer to be feared than loved”.
Applying the standard Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) model could present challenges when working with terminal cancer patients. CBT has generally targeted unrealistic fears and worries in otherwise healthy people with clinically significant anxiety symptoms (Greer, Park, Prigerson & Safren, 2010).

Using CBT with terminal cancer patients may present a challenge because some level of adverse thought is expected due to the diagnosis of a terminal illness. When a client is facing death, it may come off as

For the first four days, I tracked and recorded the number of times I was biting my nails during a half-hour time span and what situational factors and stimuli caused me to do this. Following the first four days, the next four days I chose a positive reinforcer that would help me from biting my nails.
