This quote offers clean evidence of McCandless’ willingness to continue climbing while ignoring the reality that his family was exhausted which was a potential danger. Here, McCandless’ attitude started to illustrate the rebelliousness that his father foreshadowed. His family was in total agreement that McCandless felt that “the odds did not [apply] to him. We were always trying to pull him back from the edge” (109). His family attempted to exercise some guidance in order to protect McCandless.
He believes that you can try as hard as you want but you can’t make it to something that does not exist. Much like the American dream, Gatsby’s goal is just an idea created in his head and no matter how much he is shown that he can’t get to where he wants, he refuses to accept the fact that he’s not getting anywhere. “His dream [seems] so close that he [can’t] hardly fail to grasp it... Gatsby [believes] in the green light… It [eludes them]... but [they] will… stretch out [their] arms further,”(180) thus showing that he will not give up even if he can’t get where he wants. By using the word eluded, Nick is saying that the dream is escaping them. The American Dream is just an illusion that is created.
Despite the fact that he and his wife have been “mean and fought dirty” he knows they must break down these walls of anger and resentment, “no matter how much work it requires” (442). Dr.Ted Huston stated in the article, Will Your Marriage Last by Aviva Patz: that “Our culture is to blame for perpetuating the myth of storybook romance, which is more likely to doom a marriage than strengthen it” (449). Life alone is hard. Add a spouse, children, pets, work and daily responsibilities to the list, and we each will begin to see and feel the effects of a roller coaster of emotions. There are no exact guides on how to deal with the stress and fears that life brings our way.
As a leader you must be flexible to changes. No matter what you train and teach doesn’t mean that you will see that. You have to be able to adapt the enemy's TTPs and make dastion on the operation eveirments to make sure you have the upper hand. The operation will always be changing it doesn’t matter if we are fighting groups or military forces. That are going to try to have better TTPs so we and to adjust our better and faster than them.
CHAPTER ONE In chapter one, Siddhartha learned that the love of his family would not always be enough to satisfy him. In order for him to lead a fulfilling life, he must venture out on his own and discover what really makes him happy, and what his life’s purpose is. In my life, I’ve learned that if your heart tells you that something you’re doing is morally wrong, do not do it by any means. I’ve been in way too many situations where I’ve regretted not listening to what my heart had to tell me. If you feel that something you’re doing could possibly be wrong, it is best to stop what you’re doing a really think about your choices CHAPTER TWO In chapter two, Siddhartha learned the ways of the Samanas, which is the group he chose to follow.
Although he didn’t allow me to sit in his lap, I could go and talk to him about anything. He used to always tell me that he wanted more for me than what my father was capable of giving and that he didn’t want to see me grow up and take after my father. He encouraged me to study hard and make something out of my life. He used to say that he didn’t want any of his grandchildren living the hard life and that we were all destined for greatness. I then began to research my older sister and brother’s father’s family and found that their dad came from a long line of ministers and that they migrated to Mississippi from Illinois and settled on land that used to be owned by the Natchez Indians.
At one point in my life I was nearly there growing up with my mom we went through poverty but never was homeless. Looking back at that always drove me to do better experiencing first hand would never want myself or my family meaning kids to go through that situation. The experience made me very diversity conscious of the world around me and the struggle that many others have. So I started thinking of the phrase there is always someone worst off than you. My hopes are that Josh finds that one person that will be willing to accepting him not by what he is going through but by the person I have grown to know the hard worker, the person who is willing to help, and the person who just wants the succeed.
And I learned it the hard way. When you left me, i have to believe that your no longer with me. My father has done this, he always had an eye out of you but i never knew it wasn't the affection of a daughter. He did not think twice what he is doing is not right. So what would i expect how my future would be.
My mother and father raised me to have respect for myself and everyone that I come into contact with. My high school career is where I began to grow into my own separate from my parents. The jobs that I held helped me to know what I did and did not want to do with my life. While I may not have loved every minute of my life I would not change any of it, because the mistakes that I have made and the things that I have done have taught me certain things about myself that I my otherwise not have learned. My family is a normal loving dysfunctional family.
Never even acting his age or taking repsonabilty for what he did. My mother has tired many times to make me forgive my father. To try to understand him. Telling me that he isnt such a bad man. That he just needs to get his life together.
