Self-mastery tells us that we should not let what we cannot control, control us, but instead master it and use it to our advantage. Even though things begin to look out-of-control, remind yourself that as an effective leader you should think of these situations as “opportunities rather than an obligation” (Sanborn, 2006, p. 29).

Thus, what did start out as a simple little habit became an addiction to nicotine. So, it is clear that addiction is all around us and can attack anyone of us at any given time. Even studies conducted show that people neglect to speak around their dependency for two primary reasons. Foremost, because people do not comprehend, or they bear a total misconception to their addiction, that they do not realize that addictions can be critical to their overall wellness. Moreover, second, many people believe being an addict will never happen to them, but, in reality, most addictions start off as simple little habits.
Not only were they affected by feeling the fear, trauma, depression, and confusion as the rest of the population, they also were left to face the unfortunate hatred that was directed towards them due to what was being said in the media, and how people perceived that information. Therefore, Muslim individuals and communities, especially women who wear a veil, were faced with more discrimination and stereotyping to deal with, along with dealing with any trauma, stress, and fear that the rest of the world was feeling as well. Although many of these women may need help in dealing with all of the different issues they were left to face, many of them did not and are not receiving ... ... middle of paper ... ...les, 51(5), 329-338. doi: 10.1023/B:SERS.0000046616.11468.cf Hassouneh, D.M. & Kulwicki, A.

These laws are in many ways quite detrimental to society and the objective of this paper is to explain the problematic aspects of these laws. The advantages of the legalization of marijuana, the obvious solution to the problems, will also be discussed. Despite the great deal of negative attention that marijuana receives as a drug, the beneficial affects are often times overlooked. Most people are ignorant to the positive aspects of marijuana simply because their misconceptions about the use of the drug lead them to be scared of it. For example, there are countless patients throughout the country that would benefit from the legalization of marijuana.
Although it’s not seen as a curse by us in this generation any more, many people with mental health issues still have to face ignorance, prejudice and discrimination from our society just because of their lack of understanding or reluctance to try and understand. Be that as it may, these attitudes directly impact upon how and if people choose to seek help, making the negative and ignorant opinions and attitudes of others potentially dangerous to many individuals and the people around them. There’s a myriad of mental illnesses out there; in fact over 200 classified forms. The most common being anxiety, stress, depression, bipolar and schizophrenia,
Women are not the only ones who deal with this kind of discrimination. Everybody has to deal with not feeling equal in society or not getting equal representation. People today are scared of seeming racist or sexist. (Hooks 55) Many live their lives walking on eggshells scared to speak their mind because they could offend someone.

John Steinbeck portrayed a negative attitude towards Americans and their ideals by displaying how most are dissatisfied and angry, intemperate and opinionated, and believe in these certain things about ourselves that are not always true. First, John Steinbeck shows how Americans are dissatisfied and angry with many things in their life. There is a paradox that states “We find our time searching for security, and hate it when we get it.” This shows that no matter what Americans want, once they get it they are always searching for more. When Americans achieve what they have been striving for, they always go above and beyond to be number one. Also, Steinbeck explains how Americans convince themselves that their country has the greatest government in the world, but we find every little problem with it and do nothing to change it.
