Unit 32 Understand physical Disability 1. Understand the importance of differentiating between the individual and the disability. 1.1 Explain why it is important to recognize and value an individual as a person It is important because each person deserves respect and each person has their own individual needs. Not every person is the same, and treating a person in the exact same way as everyone else may not be the best way to help show that persons individuality.
Everybody wants to change something in themselves, some people want to change their look, the attitude, their family , their friends, but they don’t do that because they are to scared of what people think. To answer this question we read Anthem, Ayn Rand, Transition I am a kind

Caring for others is an important aspect of engaging in relationships with others. We improve our relationships when we demonstrate interest, concern and attention and it also helps us to become less self-absorbed and more empathic.
I've always done my best to be cognizant of not only my own well-being, but of the well-being of people in my life, the quality of my work and within decisions like voting. I've always had the motto that "If it's not hurting anyone in the process, including yourself" then it's probably okay. In class we spoke about "Dual Life Mentality". I feel that I resonate with this belief system, entirely. I don't personally view anyone else's life to be more or less, everything is equal. I believe that everyone should be treated with respect and dignity. Whatever I do, I try frame my thought process and decisions in a way that I treat people and materials with as much care and thoughtfulness as I would hope to receive in return. Since becoming a mother, I also find myself making my decisions and actions in such a way to create the same morals and ethics for my child as he gets older. So he is able to understand the power of compassion, respect and
Personally I am not one to fall into peer-pressure or do something just to make others happy. I believe that being your own person is much better than
Hi Rose, I agree, one of the trigger that set off conflicts are financial matter. Family are the first one to have conflicts between themselves. Sometimes, your own family envy you because your doing good. The way that they are miserable, therefore, they want you to be miserable, too. Triangles conflicts are with family and usually when you have a best friend and
There is nothing wrong with someone putting time aside for themselves and making sure that they are okay. In fact, one may end up with poor mental health if they didn’t take such action. My problem is whenever someone thinks that others owe them; when someone only cares for themselves and acts as if they are the only one that matters. Society seems to agree with me, as many people utter phrases such as "You're selfish" or "The world doesn't revolve around you"! The problem is that many say those phrases to the wrong people. Too many times, someone tries to make things better for themselves and is ridiculed for it, by people who think that they should be doing something else. Again, there is nothing wrong with one taking time out for themselves, because after all their life is, in fact, their life. No one knows what's "best for them" or "what they should be doing" besides them, yet too many people think that it's their job to put someone "in their place" and tell them what they should be doing. In actuality, the people who are giving their harsh lesson on selfishness are performing an act of selfishness themselves, by thinking that their opinions of someone else's life (and actions) matter more that of the actual person they are commenting on.. It's unfortunate to say, but too many people are tricked into thinking that
Interactions with others Do unto others as you would have them do unto you is a key motto to live by.
In everything you do, do it for yourself- it isn’t selfish, at least I wouldn’t define that selfishness. This is your life, this is a gift given to you, don’t live it the way someone else told you to, live it the way YOU want to. If something makes you happy, then it makes you happy. And you should just fucking go do it because yes, people will judge you but at the end of the day who really cares? You don’t know them, and they sure as hell don’t know you. And even if they do, so
Humanity is hopeless people are destroying themselves. What will be the world in years? People are naturally born evil and selfish. People are evil and selfish it is hard to see it but you can start seeing it sooner or later. Based on the information gathered in module 4
Others Above Self What does it mean to put others above self? It’s a hard to answer when you are only eighteen and are barely starting to live. But to me putting others before myself means being selfless and doing things for those around you not because you are asked or expected to do so but instead doing it because you care and expect no reward in return. This is not a meaning that I’ve known for long in the contrary I just learned it. years ago when my parents had to put aside what they wanted and sent me away from our little home in Mexico to the US because they knew and felt it was best to send me here so I could go to a school with more opportunities. They have given up six years of their lives with me just so I could have a better chance
Sometimes bad things happen like citizens accepting and supporting racist beliefs and treatment of others, but why? There are many reasons that cause people to do bad things: many people do not want to draw the attention to themselves, often it is easier to follow the crowd, and sometimes
Why do people violate social norms? Emile Durkheim was perhaps the first to analyse deviance or ‘social pathology’ as he called it in a different way. He argued that deviance is universal (and normal), relative and functional. His influence on the sociology of order and deviance has been immense.
