It is getting increasingly worse, and even though I no longer even live near my parents, I am still emotionally attached to all that goes on. Just recently I decided that I needed to have a "loving" conversation with my mother and try to get her help. I went into that conversation promising myself I was going to be love, but I failed miserably. The conversation ended worse than it ever had and I swore to myself that I was washing my hands of this once and for all, and had convinced myself of this until last
“As the hunter is hunted down, she slays her enemies on sacred ground.” Throughout life we will experience things that will sometimes cause us want to give up or give in, but in order to be successful one must face the trials and tribulations with strength and hope. One day looking back upon each and every obstacle, then seeing how far one came because of not giving up, a new admiration will come about for one’s self. Gloria Allred has proven this to be so, throughout her lifetime. Although she was faced with obstacles, she never gave up. Developing from a young child to an American lawyer, Gloria has exhibited great strength, courage, and bravery.

Women and Flexibility in the Workplace Flexibility denotes the ability to bend without breaking. Women over the years, and under constantly changing circumstances, have maintained their ability to bend without breaking. This ability helps them with the constant change that comes with the social structure of the work environment. "Functionalists argue that males hold dominant positions because of the masculine traits of competiveness, physical strengths and mechanical aptitude. In comparison, women hold the supportive positions in society as a result of the feminine traits of ability to nurture, emotional strength, and empathetic approach to problem solving".
Taryn Stevenson Mr. David Charlson Comp 1 15 September 2012 Argument vs. Dialogue Have you ever wondered if maybe there is a right or wrong time to fight or defend specific ideas you may or may not agree with? I feel like most people don’t necessarily think about whether or not there is a right or wrong time, but rather just go day to day doing what they normally do. However, Deborah Tannen has written a short essay over what she calls “The Argument Culture.” Basically, Tannen discusses how this “argument culture” urges people all around the world to be close-minded in the sense that everything has to either be a win or lose. On the other hand, Tannen believes that there are not always two sides to everything.
The 1st conversation I’m going to analyse is between my Mum and me. You should be expecting the upmost respect and discipline in the conversation but I think that my Mum and me’s conversation differ, not that there’s no respect in the conversation but because I am casual around her. She calls my name for some time before calling me in her dialect, she normally uses her mother tongue when she’s annoyed or in urgency. We both use paralinguistic features because we know each other so well – who knows me better than my Mum- that we know what each other’s going to say before one even thinks about it. I show respect as whenever my Mum says something I either answer with ‘Yes Mum’
I have had to cope with my crazy and angry nights and I still do everyday. My family is the most important discourse community that I belong too. Conventions were created throughout this divorce process. Some would not be mentioning family fights with others unless they were extremely close, and not bringing it up around my immediate family because everyone has their own opinion and that would only cause fighting. The most important convention I’ve learned through this is how to rely on my self more and take responsibility to help my mother out as much as possible since there is one less person.
My character has molded in the crucible of adverse circumstances. Even through difficult times, I have managed to stay with the same determination to continue fighting for what I want. I stay calm and positive and continue pushing myself even when I feel like giving up. Being able to pursue my education in the physical therapy program at Barry Tech has been a stupendous experience and an accomplishment that has marked the transition throughout my life. I’ve learned that I can encounter different problems in a way I was not able to as a young girl.
She expresses to the reader how strongly she feels about needing to speak up and questioning authority. For as long as she can remember she herself did not speak up and has found that nothing can get better if no one questions the head decision makers. “For many years, I have done just that-listened, observed, and quietly formed my own opinions, in a culture that rarely asks questions because it has all the answers”(Williams 442). It is not right to sit back and do nothing when there is something going on that needs to be fixed or stopped. When people are taught to not act upon what they feel is right because a higher power is telling them that that is the way it is, then no problem can ever be solved.
Line. 10 -11 “ He was an old head, on young shoulders.” Our narrator was a ‘planner’ she had everything sorted out, and was sure of what she wanted to do in her future. She was not a wild or spontaneous person like Jed. But that was also one of their relationship’s contrasts, as mentioned before, their differences made them strong, but also weak in the end. The narrator is still a person who is sure of herself; she has grown up and proves it, when Jed told/texts that he drove his wife insane because she wasn’t our narrator, and she didn’t reply, because she knew she can’t be stuck in her past, and can’t go back to her high school love life.
