People’s self-esteem either high or low is shaped by their life experiences. I believe a person’s self-esteem begins to take shape at an early age, with their parents being a major influence. Kind, positive, knowledgeable and caring parents help children create a positive self-image. Parents who do not feel good about themselves or others, sometimes take it out on their childern by belittling them or discouraging them. This leads the child down a path of self-doubt and eventually given the right circumstances a lower self-esteem.
My parents where very overprotective which sounds good on the surface, but this caused me to feel unequal to my peers since my parents would not let me play

Summary of the Korean WarFrom Seesaw to StalemateOn 25 June 1950, Communist North Korean troops poured across the border into South Korea, intent on reunifying the country through force of arms.

The war's first year brought seesawing fortunes on the battlefield. After the Communists captured more than 90 percent of the Korean Peninsula, pushing the South Koreans and their American allies to the brink of

Leunig deeply values the truth and he questions why people feel that the truth is never good enough. Leunig acknowledges the difference between who we want to be and who we are, he suggests that people strive to unrealistic expectations concerning career, image, relationships etc. and by lying to themselves and everyone around they lose the importance of the truth. Personally I agree that people try so hard to appear how it is thought they should and to be successful, they lose their inner self and who they are. I think that we can get caught up in the race to the top and we end up living a lie about who we really are and what we really value. In Leunigs cartoon My Former Self

Discontinuity in Self-Reliance and When I Consider How My Light Is Spent
Ralph Waldo Emerson emphatically proclaims in "Self-Reliance" that "the highest merit we ascribe to Moses, Plato, and Milton is that they set naught at traditions but spoke…what they thought" (515). Emerson declares that Milton’s greatness is attributed not to conformity but rather to originality. Milton’s break with consistent expectations is epitomized in his use of a Petrarchan sonnet in the poem "When I Consider How My Light Is Spent." Nonconformity and discontinuity in a man’s approach to life are the doctrines espoused by Emerson in his work "Self-Reliance," and Milton embodies an Emersonian outlook

Robert Browning's dramatic poem "My Last Duchess" defines how extremely a person may lose touch with reality, as a result of jealousy and self-love. This central thought is achieved through an aristocrat's conversation with a visitor concerning a painting of his ex-wife; within the conversation, the aristocrat--Alfonso II, Duke of Ferrara--reveals that he has been a key figure in the murder of his late wife. The Duke's sense of reality and his misuse of power stand as important facets within the fabrication of the central idea.
The Duke almost seems to be encouraging the reader to focus on the fact that his sense of reality is defective. He begins pressing this notion to the

But, research papers and dictionaries only illustrate the self-confidence lead people to achieve their goals, but not the intensity of the self-confidence that is needed. My definition of self-confidence that leads to achievement is having ‘less’ self-assurance, and it can adjust one’s goal more feasible and pragmatic; therefore, it is the critical factor in determining one’s achievement.

At my heart I am a social worker, so the most important ethical code I ascribe to is the National Association of Social Workers’ (NASW) Code of Ethics. This document can be summarized by its six core values: 1) service; 2) social justice; 3) dignity and worth of the person; 4) importance of human relationships; 5) integrity; 6) competence (NASW, 2008).

Emerson was able to affix with my own personal experiences through his emphasis on learning to be accepting, to be one of a kind, and to not feel any less important for being nonpareil.
An example of Emerson displaying the need to accept one another is when he says, "Accept the place the divine Providence has found for you; the society of your contemporaries, the connections of events" (Emerson 246). Not everyone is happy where they are; people are constantly wanting to change their appearances or their locations or their acquaintances. This quote in particular hits

. Based on the theory of progressive overload, by gradually increasing water intake each week, the behavior will have been adapted into my lifestyle, ensuring maintenance each day. As expected, I encountered barriers over the 2-week time period the greatest being the fact that I was somewhat tired of drinking water at times. I often found it challenging, and sometimes had to force myself to drink water as I knew it was beneficial to my health. To overcome this barrier I added lemon juice and ice as often as it was available to make the water more appealing to my pallet. I think is important to emphasize the fact that recording my water consumption for my self-report, did motivate me to drink more water and wonder if this will affect me negatively after the experiment is over. In conclusion, though I didn’t achieve my 2- week product goal specifically, I did increase my water intake, resulting in an overall increase in health and my personal wellbeing.

Ethics is an important part of living in today’s society as it raises questions to our morality and how we react to certain situations. According to Bennett-Woods (2005), ethics is best defined as a “branch of philosophy that studies morality through the critical examination of right and wrong in human action”. Characters and behaviors start to form over time not just because of the morals we were brought up with but also through life experiences. While working as a health care professional, there are times that situations may challenge our morals as humans but it is essential to decide what would be the best course of action that will benefit the patients.

PROACTIVITY AND EI ASSESSMENT (PART II) I came to understand self awareness as recognition of our personality, our strengths and weaknesses, our likes and dislikes. Our ability to know ourselves inside out gives us media to be proactive, we know our weaknesses which naturally make us reactive but by being able to identify them, we can work on them and incorporate proactiveness in our dealings. Self awareness which is a personal competence is different from the other of its kind called "self regulation" because the latter has to do with self control, trustworthiness, conscientiousness, adaptability and innovativeness. Also it differs from the social competences which include empathy and

The American social environment has revolutionized the ways in which people express their sexual identity. Years ago it was taboo for a young lady to talk about sex or even arouse her interest about the topic. Sheltered under her parents wings a girl was not given the opportunity to explore her sexuality. Parents molded their children in their image and did not allow them much choice or opportunity for diversity. It was not as socially acceptable for a young person to be allowed to express themselves through clothes, music or lifestyle as it is today.

Many teens see drugs as a pointless thing to do, and think of it as a way teens use to get popular. If someone were to ask Emerson what he thought about teens using drugs as a way to get popular his response probably would have been, "Whoso would be a man or woman must be a nonconformist" (Self-Reliance" 21). Others see it as a relaxing, enjoyable way to ease your stress. Those people, when asked why they do drugs reply with answers like this: "What I must do is all that concerns me, not what the people think" (Self-Reliance" 23). For those who do

He supported this concept that we should rely on our own intuition and beliefs. "Trust thyself: every heart vibrates to that iron string." Emerson, along with the Transcendental Movement, believed in the vitality of self-reliance. One must have confidence and belief in oneself.
