Consequently, some people with an addiction may reach a point in their life where it can turn harmful, therefore, people need to look for assistance. Even so, people still neglect to talk about addictions because people are ashamed, or in denial, and it is probably not one’s choice of topics that is brought up at your breakfast table, or you may never have confronted anyone before. Still, addiction is all around us, and most people today still do not understand or have misconceptions about addictions because addiction is a disease, and studies have indicated that addictions are a physical defect in the brain, thus, making it hard for some people to give up their addictions on their own. The chances are that we all know or have loved ones with an addictions to either drugs or alcohol. Still today, one of the biggest challenges is being able to talk to that person about their addiction.
A narrative is constructed to elicit a particular response from its audience. In the form of a written story, authors use specific narrative strategies to position the ‘ideal reader’ to attain the intended understanding of the meanings in the text. Oliver Sacks’ short story The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat is an unusual short story because it does not display conventional plot development; the story does not contain conflict or resolution of conflict. The genre of the story is also difficult to define because it reads as an autobiographical account of an experience Sacks had with a patient while working as a neurologist. Although it is arguable that the narrative is a work of non-fiction, it is nevertheless a representation, distinct from a reflection of the real events.
Although the text may become derivative as it is translated from author to text, the inability to conquer the true meaning of the authors is solely left up to the subjectivity of the reader. The birth of the reader is sacrificed at the author’s death. “Perception without reason is mere experience, but reason without perception is nothing.” The theories presented in Barthes’s literature promote the reader’s perception with reason. The text promotes independent thinking knowing the reader may posses a subjective bias. The birth of the reader through reading texts similar to Barthes’s consciously challenges the reader’s perception and reason of experience to connect to novellas such as Balthazar’s Marvelous Afternoon.
Anosmia Have you ever wondered what your life would be like if you did not have one of your five senses? At some point in our lives we have all seen a blind or deaf person but how often do we wonder what it would be like if we were in their shoes? Many people take their senses for granted, not giving much thought to the fact that something as simple as bumping your head the wrong way or getting a cold could take away your sense of smell forever. Anosmia is the total loss of the sense of smell and affects approximately two million Americans (Wuensch, 2001). Of all the five senses, smell seems to be the least appreciated due to our society's beliefs that sight and hearing are more important for survival (Gillyatt, 1997).
Both of these disorders wreak havoc on a person's body and mental state, forcing them to become emaciated and often depressed. There is no known exact cause of either anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa, but many factors play a role in the initial onset, such as: personality traits, low self-esteem, and social and cultural influences (Costin, 21). Many anorexics have specific personality traits that urge them to refrain from eating. Many are perfectionists that will diet and exercise and not eat until their bodies are perfect. Unfortunately, however, he or she never thinks their body is perfect, and continues their destructive cycle.
After their presentations, I have realised how different settings are and yet how similar is the process of developing a positive environment that was visible in all presentations. We discussed various ideas and practices which we will implement in our own settings. It is not always easy to change practice in the setting that is already functioning to children’s, parents’ and management’s satisfaction, however, there is always room for improvement and listening to experiences of others encourages me to try it too. The work-based modules are beneficial for me and although I have learnt about methods that have been already present in my setting, I have realised why they are important and how to apply them... ... middle of paper ... ... and thinking about various tasks I complete during the day more than I have done in the past. I have learnt not to jump to conclusions quickly but look at different aspects and reasons first.
It takes a little time for you to adjust to the change of something being different, but opening up and allowing people to help you with this change makes a huge difference. Keeping yourself from isolation and surrounding yourself with good people to help you threw things in life is always a good remedy. It’s important to remember that we are all humans and we all need to express how we feel to someone even if it is about nothing, it is still helpful to talk your feelings out with someone.
Every single thing in the universe requires knowledge to understand it, and through this understanding we learn things that we never dreamed of knowing. Although some have spent their entire lives learning about certain subjects, no one can even come close to knowing everything that this universe has to offer us. Sometimes you may see a person and instantly judge them, noticing they are accompanied by a work dog or carry a white stick to help them move around, judging by this isn't fair to those people because you don't know what they go through everyday dealing with their handicap. Many people think they could handle losing one of their five senses and don't understand why some people make such a big deal about it. These people have not yet lived through something as hard as having a sensory or mental handicap so they do not know the difficulties involved.

It is never easy to admit you’ve made a mistake, but it is a crucial step in learning, growing, and improving yourself. You can only learn from a mistake after you admit you’ve made it. As soon as you start blaming other people, you distance yourself from any possible lesson or reason. In the article “How to identify and learn from your mistakes” Berkun explains why it is hard to admit that you’ve made a mistake. “It’s never easy to admit you’ve made a mistake, but it’s a crucial step in learning, growing, and improving yourself.
