When you’re wrong, or you don’t know something and you can admit it, it is an opportunity to learn and grow. That is nothing to fear or be ashamed of, but for some reason we perpetuate the myth of seeing an apology as weakness. There are many people that mistake not apologizing as a sign of strength. They fool themselves into believing that to apologize would make them seem weak, or put them in a vulnerable position. The truth is there is absolutely nothing strong about hurting someones feelings.
Doing nothing doesn’t help me manage my time and it is just a waste. In an article from www.lookingforhappiness.org it says that when someone goes for long periods at a time doing nothing, it can lead to them being depressed. It makes the person feel worthless and as if they are not important. This is a reason why I shouldn’t waste my time not doing anything. It is not beneficial to me and is more likely to make me more sad than happy.
They aren’t done out of spite or pleasure, it is just something that is done. This conclusion falls into the ideology of skepticism with moral falsehood with claims that “every substantive moral belief is false.” (Sinnott-Armstrong, 2015). If morality exists at all, then it cannot be verified to be true by any means. This gives way to nihilism, an absolute void of meaning and morality. Much like skepticism nihilism views
The rationale behind Job’s reduction in agency is much less clear and is never addressed by God, who was an accessory to the whole affair by knowingly allowing it to take place. The comforters suggest possible explanations, unhidden sin or a lesson from God, but neither suggestions are confirmed or denied. The reason God accepted Satan’s wager remains a playground for speculation. When the plans of the gods, or God, are against them, neither Odysseus nor Job have control over the direction their lives take. They can only contemplate why it is happening and wait for it to end.
I do not understand how someone can be rude and hurtful to another person and that person will just “forgive and forget” about it. It takes quite a bit to make me angry, I am a pretty easy going person, so if I get mad at someone it is not for no reason. This a value I stand by because if someone does something hurtful to me, then I do not want them to be a part of my life. I do not want to surround myself with people who are going to constantly make me feel bad about myself. As I am sure no one does.
With that being said, when someone points out one of my weaknesses, I don’t smile or simply “take” the criticism, I do not even try to see a disagreement or discord the criticism as an opportunity for growth, I take it to heart and take it personally. As much as I try not to become overly defensive towards criticism; I listen and judge it objectively… in my
I do have some coworkers and friends who I know cannot handle ambiguity well. So, compared to some I function well in that type of setting. I have found that often, not always, that ambiguity in instructions is intentional because certain aspects are not precise. I am moderately creative. Before taking the assessment I would have said that I am not creative at all.
Nevertheless, in reality racism is prejudice and having the power to do something about it. I certainly do not have the power to do anything about it nor the
In fact, there is no point to human existence. It isn’t surprising then how the meaning of life for nihilism is essentially that there isn’t any meaning. Although in the eyes of a nihilist, the meaninglessness doesn’t matter, as nothing in the world is valuable. The Cyrenaics “The art of life lies in taking pleasures as they pass, and the keenest pleasures are not intellectual, nor are they always moral.” –
Overall, I am very glad I changed my original idea. I do think that my previous personal project idea was not something I would be continuing. It was a good idea but not really something that affected me. I think that I would hate blogging afterwards because it required more of my time and did not have anything to do with society. My opinion is that it was a very irrelevant topic.
