So I normally try to go over and beyond to make sure everyone around me is happy or having a good time. Everyone should feel welcomed and accepted wherever they go. My family and friends tend to always call on me for the voice of reasoning. I never really thought about it until I took the test that people trust me with their secrets and the personal experiences in their life. It makes me feel good that people trust me enough to talk to me about any and everything.
The Tales of Ibn Shariyar and How They Reflect the Importance of Storytelling The Tales of Ibn Shariyar Storytelling has long been a valuable asset to humankind and our varying cultures. Humans are social creatures, and there is something appealing about coming together to share ideas, experiences, and goals. Before the written word, language was used to share times past and lessons to younger generations. Oftentimes, one individual person in a village or group would be assigned the duty of storing all knowledge of their community’s history in their own minds, and further tasked to share this information with future generations. This practice is one that has continued in our own modern times, with historians and archivists assigned to maintain humankind’s past and preserve it for future generations.
I chose this course to develop my awareness of counselling and the techniques that are required. I wanted to see if I had the correct skills and knowledge, to offer a variety of counselling skills to my work colleagues or the students that I work with. Before the course I would have said that I had a lot of good qualities that are essential in counselling. Some of my strengths are that I am not judgemental, I can support unconditionally, I am a good listener and I am very attentive. Reflecting over the past weeks and assessing the impact of this course, I am now more aware that Counselling can help in a number of different ways.
I take this privilege very seriously. Social workers have the opportunity to work with people from different cultures, religions, and backgrounds. If you don’t know about a culture or specific religion, you can research to learn more about them, their values, and heritage. Nevertheless, the best way to learn about your clients and show them you’re interested in their lifestyle, culture, or religion is to ask them yourself. They are the experts in their lives and your best resource to expand your knowledge and understand about a culture’s values and beliefs.
Open-minded people will “stretch” and therefore allow happiness and growth. If an idea can be shown to be correct, then an open-minded person is likely to alter their view and accept it as new found knowledge. Keeping an open-mind undeniably allows for growth; it is the only course to personal growth. It is through an open-mind that we open ourselves up to “stretch” and grow. Having taken time to explore both ways of thinking, the choice seems astonishingly clear.
While reading the novel My Sister’s Keeper it took me back to the year my mom died, just like Kate she too needed a kidney but wasn’t as fortunate to live long enough for it to happen. More depth into the book I began to put myself in all of the characters shoes, Kate and Anna were both brave. Anna was brave because she kept undergoing surgery for her sister donating stem cells, bone marrow, and blood which were all not easily done. Kate is also brave because she never once complained; she loved her sister more than herself and she already knew her fate was decided. ”My sister’s the one who’s always had to imagine life without me”.
Being a mother has been truly a wakeup call and a sincere motivation to continue my education. Like many other children my sweet baby girl does not like the doctor, while waiting in the room for the doctor to come she asked me “mommy why are you not a doctor? This way we would never have to come here” while I smiled and nodded to her with a response that mommy would be one day, it just hit me hard like never before that I must take some action soon before it is too late, not that she mentioned to me she wanted me to be a doctor but it has been my desire to become a nurse one day since I was a little girl, her words were just a add on and touched me deeply. I have a great sense of humor and great personality. I am easy to get along with and a hard working mother that works hard to raise a child
That seems to common with all mothers and their young, but definitely growing up as an only child I experienced much more. To this day my mother still deems me to be “too young for that” or tells me to “be careful” when referring to going certain places and etc. All in all, I feel the trials and tribulations faced in The Odyssey are very similar to things I went through growing up. Lastly, the death of my cousin, who was a role model to me, had a major effect on my life. Death is a theme seen throughout The Odyssey and the emotion it brings is seen the entire time
With my voice I can share my feelings, show people who I am, and tell stories. Having a voice should be important to everyone because it is your way of expressing yourself. My voice is important because it represents me as an individual. It is the sound that makes me who I am and it helps me to share my likes and dislikes. With my voice I am able to share my biggest secrets and tell my latest jokes, with my best friend of course.
It is other factors such as age and location that contribute to the relationship and determine the level of closeness. Emily’s lack of emotion towards her mother can be attributed to a number of issues in her youth. Since Emily was born, her mother had been working diligently to support the family. To make matters worse, she was only nineteen when Emily was born. Her husband left early on in Emily’s life and her mother was forced to leave her with friends or send her to day care.
