1st Paragraph First and foremost, an outsider who attempts to maintain an honourable reputation in order to veil his insecurities can lead to jealousy. In the play called “Othello”, Iago states that “One Michael Cassio, a Florentine, a fellow almost damn'd in a fair wife; that never set a squadron in the field, but he, sir, had th' election”(Shakespeare, 1.1.20-27). As a book from Elizabethan Times, Iago says that Micheal Cassio does not deserve the lieutenant position because he lacked experience in the battle field, and is a foreigner. Jealousy occurs when one has a fear of losing a person, place, or thing. This quote is evident that Iago is jealous of Othello because it was Othello who promoted Micheal Cassio the position of a lieutenant instead of Iago.
As social beings, human are constantly driven by the need to belong. The ways in which we connect with the people around us and the groups we choose to belong to, form and influence our own identity. How we deal with the paradox of wanting be who we truly are while at the same time being accepted by others form the heart of our identity and is reflected in the ways we present ourselves to others. Belonging to groups and communities, whether it be family, social or environmental, has countless benefits, providing us with a sense of security and protection as well as nurturing and helping us to develop our own sense of self. However, belonging comes with a price.
Captain Delano’s ignorance and social conditioning have made him resistant to accepting a revolt has unfolded on the San Dominick. Delano is significantly more affected by his preconceived notions about social order and his ignorance than the lawyer in “Bartleby the Scrivener”. Much like the lawyer, whose series of events with Bartleby have been characterized as issues with charity, Delano falls under the same “mind trap” that he must help the tattered sailors. However, the lawyer does not seem as ignorant as Delano. The lawyer’s problem stems from the fact that he doesn’t know how to deal with and eventually get rid of Bartleby.
Ignoring the reality of everyday life and how it works can obsure individuals perspective of the world, which has devastating effects, such as not being able to understand what it best for ones self in life.

The horrific working and living conditions for people in lower classes were caused by Nicholas’ poor judgement and lack of knowledge of current issues facing the Russian population. As seen in Source 1 it is evident that Nicholas 11 was not fit to rule Russia, “Nicky’s unfitness was by no means his fault… he was wholly ignorant about government matters”. Tsar’s sister, the Grand Duchess Olga continues to state that Nicholas was unaware of certain situations occurring in Russia therefore he should not be liable for the downfall of the Russian government. As a result of Tsars ineffective rule of Russia the idea of a revolution became increasingly attractive. Revolutionaries channelled peasant’s dissatisfaction into political activity in attempt to overthrow the Tsar.
Due to the complex and abstract nature of the concept of belonging, a true sense of acceptance can be found in different circumstances for different people. As each individual has their own desires, needs and values, they find their place in the world and a genuine sense of belonging in various avenues. Many individuals find the strongest sense of belonging through relationships, due to the fact that by nature these connections fulfill the human need for social interaction and enrich the lives of the persons involved. Conversely, relationships, which do not fit the conventional model of this kind of connection can result in negative outcomes for individuals can ultimately lead to a true sense of not belonging and its related notions of isolation and disaffection. Stephen Herrick’s The Simple Gift and Theophile Gautier’s ballet; Giselle performed by The Mariinsky Ballet Company are two texts in which an exploration of belonging and its different meanings for individuals ultimately leads to a deeper understanding of the complexity and concept of belonging and thus that individuals can belong in a great range of places, not limited to relationships.
Belonging and being accepted into a group can have both negative and positive effects on an individual’s sense of personal identity. As humans we naturally want to belong and feel accepted. We are usually brought up in a specific way and mingle with people that are similar to us and without knowing we form an invisible bond with these people. Whether it may be religious views, cultural similarities or similar up bringing all these factors help us to become the person we are. Lars Fr.
My Defining Quality In our lives, there are aspects that are thought to define us. They are our unique roles or undertakings that when mentioned remind people of us. This could be because they are talented or have mastery of the said art or the doing. However, individuals view themselves in a distinct manner that they wish others would acknowledge them from the said perspective. Often, the society categorizes people from the activities they perform the best.
Unlearning or learning an intentional behavior takes time. There is also the temptation to self-sabotage the process with patterns that can make others build defensiveness or out rightly repulse our intention to help them through that phase of their life. Some people who engage in destructive lifestyles feel helpless; some of them have gone through tough circumstances. While one cannot objectively justify engaging in a destructive lifestyle because of life’s circumstance, anyone in such a lifestyle needs our love and help. Let us reinstate that connectedness of our community, let’s connect with them emotionally and mentally, above all, help them find and express their path.
