One of my weaknesses is that I tend to over analyze/stress too much. This has been in my nature since I was a child. This fear has always held me back in speaking in front of an audience whether it is two or twenty. I fear has always been that I do not want to embarrass myself and seem like a failure in front of my peers. Another weakness I have as a public speaker is that I tend to stumble and skip sentences.
As I still continue to read the ignorant article, I come towards the abusive language when you comment and say “there are so many of the bastards”. The way you use the abusive language is very harsh. If you had done your research, you would have found out that homelessness is caused by many didn’t things such as parents, friends or relatives unwilling or unable to continue to accommodate them, relationship breakdown, including domestic violence, unemployment and loss of an assured short hold tenancy. Along with many different reasons, why people are homeless, which you never implied to use. Nevertheless, I have never seen anyone be so harsh by talking about themselves, it will make everything better.
By Lennie not speaking it really annoyed Curley and Curley thought Lennie was mucking him around so Curley got really angry at Lennie for not speaking and they ended up having a fight and they both got hurt. So there is a perfect example of how conflict is heightened when people are not permitted to speak and this shows that telling people what to do can sometimes lead to people getting hurt. Another reason why conflict is heightened when people are not permitted to speak is the part in the book where Lennie is with Curley’s wife and she tells Lennie to feel her hair, so of course, Lennie feels her hair but he starts patting it a little bit too hard so Curley’s wife starts screaming but Lennie covers her mouth so no one can hear her. If Lennie didn’t talk to Curley’s wife like he was told then she would still be alive and Lennie would probably still be alive as well. This tells us that sometimes
The tone of this essay is serious and annoyed bacuse she is fed up with people thinking the wrong impressions of deaf people. Sometimes, she is sarcastic. Also, by reading the essay over multiple times while I was making notes, I noticed different tones and small details that I wouldn't have otherwise. For example, originally I thought that the author had a valid point and that she expressed it in a way that represented the way that society truly is. Eventually though, I recognized the bias that she had against the hearing world.
Nowadays people don’t hold themselves liable for their anger and blame someone or something for their own behavior. Enraged outbursts are likely to happen anywhere no place is exempt in this mad world. Hales states in her essay, “Three things responsible for this angry world are: time, technology, and tension.” When we’re running low on patience and all tensed up, we don’t recognize how we treat or talk to people. We have lost our tolerance for inconvenience. It’s a feeling of weakness that sparks our raving madness and being furious for a moment won’t do us any good.
With watching the video, Alan was dreading the “employee’s evaluation from the very beginning, this was something he did not like doing. The case with Gretchen, he seemed to me to be in the attack mode. He was prejudging her as to why she was not turning the work out faster. As our text explains, “When we prejudge others’ communication, we sacrifice learning information and new perspectives that might enlarge our thinking (Van Styke, 1999). I believe Alan thought she was probably just being slack, in reality Gretchen was taking her time and getting the jobs done with high standards.
People also tell me that I have a mental problem and that could be one of the reason I can’t get a job. I have mix emotions I can get real mad and stressed out that I will think of bad things to do to myself just to release the stress. I know it’s not good but anger problems runs in my family but I try to control it sometimes it work and other times it don’t. I am drug free I don’t even be around it any more. I am struggling trying to take care of my family without losing my family.
They are both every verbal people and their ability to verbally point out the inferiority in people and myself being their focus much of the time assures me that in most times I am on a path they are not happy with because the path that I am on is a path that they them selves have not been able to travel and complete. In the past their ability to take down my ego was mostly rooted in my past short comings even that as a child. Today my short comings are still there but they have changed and the fact that I have been able to separate myself from them has truly changed their ability to be the ego busters that they have been in the past and given me the opportunity to focus on my family, health and ability to grow as a mother and a
These labels that are constantly put on us drive me insane. There is so much hidden in our family that non-members do not see. In addition to all of these stereotypes that are put on me and the others in my group, I do not like to show people that it bothers me, but these stereotypes have really given me a negative outlook on these people. The stereotypes that have been put on me have made me put stereotypes back on these other people. I now look at the outsiders as "city slickers" or I call them lazy and tell them that they have no discipline.
With every, “What does ‘J’ stand for?” I would reply assertively, “’J’ is for jealously.” However, being asked what the letter indicated was not the worst part. The explanation of how and why I am jealous continued to baffle people. Nobody could really understand the roots of my jealousy, not even my own mother. I would receive retorts such as, “What do you even have to be jealous of?” with a hint of exasperation. While producing a response, I thought long and hard about the origin of my jealously.
