Ben-Shahar speaks correctly while discussing how individuals must give themselves permission to experience negative feelings before they reach the point where they can completely experience the positive feelings. Therefore, positive feelings are inadvertently blocked by negative feelings. Dr. Mathieu (2011) from Psychology Today, discusses how “providing so many positive solutions can inadvertently blame people for their suffering” (para. 3). Henceforth, whenever people see articles on being happy and social media posts where everyone has their happiest face on, they do not accept the it is okay to have negative feelings as well. Ben-Shahar discusses how many people feel inferior while experiencing negative feelings, but in reality every person except the dead and psychopathic experience the same feelings. Counseling Directory (2016) identifies that “we are continually setting ourselves up to fail” (para. 5). Furthermore, acting as part of the human race means that individuals are imperfect. Striving to reach perfection is the beginning of failure because of the impossibility forever block the
Humanity. It is disconcerting to think about what we the humans have done to our own race. All because we believe in trying to find a difference such as our ethnicity, intellect, or looks to try to find how we are better than some. Hitler did this to the Jews as he wanted the world to have the Aryan race with the Holocaust, and America did this to the Japanese during the Japanese internment. The Holocaust and the Japanese internment are very different from one another yet they are both very similar to each other.
“Whenever you feel like criticizing any one . . . just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had” (1).
People who are nice, loving, and kind can change those who are bitter and mean for the better. For example, Clarisse in Fahrenheit 451 made Montag realize that he is going through the motions in life and that he isn't happy. Negative people can also hold you back or provoke you to do what they say and what they think is right. Captain Beatty hurts and convinces everyone around him to do the thing that’s wrong and best for him. Negative people only know how to be negative and their good at. We have to appreciate the good in life and in people. “ Appreciate the good people. They are hard to come by.” “Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher. Life is already filled with those who ant to bring you down.” People don't only show who they are with their words but with their actions. Their infectious positive energy changes everything and someone them for the greater good. People can sometimes not realize who or what they have and they take it for granted. “People say, “Find the good people and leave the bad ones”. But it should be, “ Find the the good in people and ignore the bad in
“To be successful you have to be selfish, or else you never achieve. And once you get to your highest level, then you have to be unselfish. Stay reachable. Stay in touch. Don't isolate.”
“The most important single ingredient in the formula of success is knowing how to get along with people.” Theodore Roosevelt
I never should have started it, but I had no idea I would cause so much trouble. I also had no idea that I would get a senior pilot’s license at the age of thirteen, breaking the record for youngest person to get a senior pilot’s license. The only thing I regret is spray painting the “F” word on the side of a y-wing. That is what got my license revoked. After my license was revoked, I dropped out of the academy and began my adventurous life of crime. I stole an abandoned A-wing from the barracks that I might’ve blown the door off of… Maybe. I don’t really care anyways. While I’m frantically flying away from Corellia, I’ll introduce myself. Hi, I’m Han Solo, orphaned at the age of nine when my parents crashed their starship into this stupid planet coming back from a run.
“The less you respond to rude, critical, argumentative people, the more peaceful your life will become.” This statement was made by Best-Selling author Mandy Hale. But, this is incorrect. Many people believe that staying away from negativity can help bring a peaceful life, but that is not always the case. For example, there are consequences for your mistakes and you learn from them. Which, over time, can change you. Also, negativity can help change your lifestyle, help you learn from other people’s mistakes. And finally, if people do get hurt, either emotionally or physically, there are many support groups around the world that help. Numerous amounts of people feel that relationships are not important, and they are correct. They are not just
This quote means that humans choose if they want to be good or bad people. The path a person traverses in life is their prerogative. The wolf that is fed is cared for. The wolf who is hungry will leave. The one that is cared for will stay with you. If you feed your negativity, it will grow and overpower the positivity inside of you. If you feed your positivity, it will grow and overpower the negativity inside of you.
This quotation reminds me of happiness. Happiness is most often experienced as the result of other pursuits, and not actively pursued itself. Like the concept of “good”, happiness is an abstract force that is hard to imagine separate from its host. However, happiness is similarly contagious. It has the potential to affect anyone it reaches without effort. When I watch someone celebrate their
I believe the meaning behind Churchill's quote is that we have the power to control our thoughts and our attitudes or the way we act around people in general. Some may believe that the way we come across people is how we make friends or possibly enemies. That is why many people live in the withering negative world. That is why many people live in the Positive Faith world. These people either look at the bright side or the bad side of things or people in this
“I believe you find life such a problem because you think there are good people and bad people. You're wrong, of course. There are, always and only, the bad people, but some of them are on opposite sides.”
