As we grow new understandings and opinions form, creating a unique viewpoint of the world that is ever changing. My personal viewpoint may be much different than those of the people I grew up with due to different experiences and family backgrounds that have helped to form my identity. As people, we have inherent biased towards our own views of how the world works based on our identity, place and the histories we have been taught. We only gain a clearer understanding of the world when we open up and actively attempt to view the world from another perspective. This process can, and often will, lead to some uncomfortable and disheartening experiences, but it eventually leads to a better
I firmly believe that society has created so many problems forcing it’ beliefs onto us. We need to realize these problems and change them to become better things. That we are all allowed to be ourselves, original, not just a bunch of dolls letting ourselves be controlled. My purpose to let more people was is wrong with our society so they open their eyes are helping to make this a better world to live in.
The absolute “Truth depends on your point of view the truth, customs perspectives, morals or beliefs created by one owns culture will not necessarily apply to another culture.” (Muelhoff & Lewis). In many regions of the world, people tend to view and value different customs, beliefs and values.” The world we embrace have different perspectives and view points, which greatly influenced our perceptions. “Not only is our knowledge of the world influence and condition by culture, but our idea of how the world should change is influenced as
people trying to understand and learn about the world they are living in. If we do this, then we
Not many people consider the dynamic influence the rhetoric of the world has on us; however, it drastically shapes many components of our life. If I were stranded alone on a desert island starting the very moment I became conscious of being, I would be quite a different person. My personality, actions, and characteristics that are heavily influenced by my parents, friends, and society would be totally different without their presence on the desert island.
The world’s population is exponentially increasing on a daily basis. With each passing day, hundreds of thousands of lives, some great, some horrible, are added to this world, introducing many different perspectives, stories, and beliefs into the already colossal set of the history of the human condition. This idea was extremely discouraging for my view on the world, for I wanted to make a difference on this extremely large planet. To be utterly unique and achieve feats that have never been accomplished, was always a goal. Yet, one novel completely destroyed my entire viewpoint that had taken years to create; however, once my desire to shine brighter than everyone faded, I realized there are more important things in the world than myself and even if I influence one person out of seven billion, I changed the world.
Apart from the news on celebrities which is a fascination in our society these days, it is not difficult for a layman to gain a glimpse at the problems that most afflict humanity by simply seeing the headlines and thinking about what unites them. It is not difficult to gain an idea of what is closest to human hearts when we are so passionately moved by movies and music, by turning our heads to the heavens, or by seeing a woman help an elderly person across the street. It is simple to have faith in humanity’s ability to move forward when we see that, despite setbacks in the forms of wars and armed conflicts, humans were able to eliminate smallpox and continue working to cure cancer. It is easy to believe in the real and present danger of war when one sees images of the World Trade Center, the shadows of edifices and people long since departed seared into the ground upon which thousands of people walk daily, after they suffered a horrendous terrorist attack. The willingness I feel to help those in need is confirmation enough that there is yet hope for mankind.
As it is written by Sara Perring, “Our perspective on anything is coloured by our beliefs, values, and experience”. Our judgement is clouded by how we see certain situations. This judgement could impact how we treat others and feel towards them. If we open up more, and see the world through other people’s perspectives, we would have the chance to become a better person. Looking at other’s point of views would give us the opportunity to understand how they are feeling. Once we understand this, we will learn more about the world and the problems it holds, thus broadening our beliefs, values, and
I believe that you should always be aware of what is going on in the world around you because you should always be informed about things. Like for instance the Las Vegas shooting if you did not know this happened
From an early age I was taught the importance of personal integrity and the importance of being adaptable and prepared for any stressful situation that life may throw at you. During my time as a boy scout I was constantly taught to be prepared and to also to always be at the service of others. At the end of our camping trips we would be told repeatedly to “leave this place, better than when you found it” and this lesson has translated into my own life. I want to make the world a better (safer) place than when I found it. As I grew up, these lessons continued to play a key role in the decisions I made and have made me into the man that I’ve become today.
Most people think that there is only one true world in which they live, and everyone lives their own life in this world. This is not true, unfortunately. The world in which each person lives is the world for himself or herself that is built up by his or her own sense and thoughts, which is slightly different from the true world. The word that expresses this well is a phrase that the world exists only as much as people know. It is not that people perceive the world because it exists, but the world exists because people perceive. And people are very vulnerable hearing the truth that breaks this world of their own. For instance, Children who believe in the existence of Santa Claus may react violently if they hear that Santa Claus is not real. Edith, in The Man From Earth (2007), becomes outraged when John says he was Jesus who tried to pass down Buddha’s lesson to others. Colleagues go through emotional up and downs constantly and even upset while they listen to John’s story which stands against their common sense and faithful
I believe we should all take pains to gain insight into global culture, and the more learned you are, the more capable you become of forming opinions and connections to the whole world.
Individuals see the world in unique and varied ways. Factors such as educational experiences, ways of knowing, personal responsibility and family structure have influenced my beliefs and attitudes. A world view results from the process through which knowledge and understanding is obtained.
