You should endeavor to be the best of yourself, you can be the best but still you will generate critics and people who find reason to dislike you, but that’s okay. The only person you can change is you yourself, so you should focus on improving, educating and developing
They are so busy worrying about protecting themselves that they even forget about the others. People, especially in Maycomb County, avoid identifying themselves in the other person. However, they are willing to take part in a bigger group in order to not identify themselves within the other person not as an individual, but as a group. Every single person is able to make “moral choices.” Lastly, I conclude by saying that by choosing what seems to be the right choice, might be harder for the ones who lack empathy, but as Baron-Cohen says, “the choice still
Traditionally, when cultural and racial discrimination was rife, most people felt it necessary to discard their cultural backgrounds and adopt a more acceptable lifestyle.

People with a unique talent would at first feel down because of the people that are not accepting them as they are. But if a that person could find someone, just one person, that could push him towards being himself and tell the world about their talent, it could be a great push towards their self-esteem. A person with something unique should not be a barrier in being proud; it should not let a person feel down, it must be a good thing that could help them have a great future and dream more. They should never let any person that wants to fit into any group and not be themselves pushing them down. People that doubt you for your talent should be the ones that push you towards your talent.

This is normal phenomenon because nobody wants their culture being offended. If we cannot properly deal with cultural diversity, it may influence the relationship and trust building among people. Additionally, if we visit to other countries, it is better to respect and follow their cultural norms and rules so that we will not give a bad image or impression to the local people. Otherwise, it may cause conflicts between people which is not good for promoting cultural diversity.
If we have respect for ourselves, then we would not let other people take advantage of us. Whenever we do not have respect for ourselves, we would not have confidence and love ourselves. Self-respect is when you know how you should be treated by other people and yourself, and you do not tolerate people who depreciate them. Nowadays, anyone who does not respect themselves has usually held themselves lower than their peers. They think that everyone is better than their self and
