hope in sightin a moment of weakness,
find the strength.
in the hardship of a trial,
see the goal.
if misery loves company,
recognise your friend.
if darkness sets in,
know the dawn of hope.
nightmarei lost the way.
i went astray.
i gave up.
all the nonsense
which guided me
from nowhere and
nowhere to go.
i fell into the endless trap
of chasing life.
of hounding it.
the disgusting game
of hide and seek.
but i'm not waking up.
this is life
not just a dream..
what am i supposed to do??
eine zweite chanceSo viele Wege noch zu gehen.
So viele Worte ungesagt.
So viele Dinge noch zu sehen.
So viele Fragen ungefragt.
So viele Bruecken noch zu schlagen.
So viele Hoffnungen unverzagt.
So viele Traeume noch zu tragen.
So viele Gedanken ungewagt.
So viele Erfahrungen noch zu machen.
So viele Erkenntnisse ungelehrt.
So viele Male noch zu lachen.
So viele Schwaechen unbewehrt.
So viele Schmerzen noch zu lindern.
So viele Menschen unerreicht.
So viele Leiden noch zu mindern.
So viele Traenen ungeweint.
Oh Vater,hoer'mich anEs tut mir Leid,
fuer was ich tat,
fuer was ich sagte.
Doch Reue allein
nimmt Worte nicht zurueck.
Darum bitte ich dich,
mir ein letztes Mal noch
die lastenschwere Suende zu verzeihen,
auf dass mein Gewissen Ruhe findet.
psychology2However turn the focus of attention to the explanation provided by the learning approach:
The main statement is that our behaviour is largely due to learning experiences and environmental (especially parental )influences (during primary socialisation)
neglecting the mental processes involved .
It is an attempt to be scientific and measure observable behaviours including human and non-human animals to investigate the mechanisms of behaviour acquisition by observing responses to given stimuli (see processes of operant and classical conditioning). Furthermore does it support clearly the nurture side of the debate.
This approach states that learning happens through association,consequences (trial and error,law of effect) and observation ,aswell as imitation and reinforcement.
From an early age our environment(first parents,then friends, teachers,then chefs)
teaches us directly or indirectly how to behave in a gender appropriate way.
We form associations between behaviour and gender
psychology1A basic aspect of psychology is the question "what determines gender?".
In this essay i'm going to compare the explanation provided by the biological and the learning approach in relation to the nature - nurture debate.
Let's have a look at what the biological approach to psychology states in matters of gender development:
Firstly is important to mention that the biological explanation values scientific and measurable methods and states that our behaviour ,characteristics and personality are mostly influenced by our genetic make-up.
Adoptation and twin studies are used to help explain and show that this statement is valid.As every individual inherits 23 pairs of chromosomes from the parents,our appearance is due to 22 pairs of our genes,just one pair determines our gender.
In females is the final pair XX,while it's XY in males.
This is the case in most of us.But there are exceptions:
In the past occured cases of hermaphrodites ,who were born with both genitalia
insightwhen listening to that voice,
i recognise the strengths god granted humans.
the mercy he bestowed upon us.
the lives he gave us.
the wisdom lying within his decisions.
everything is a gift granted to make us succeed
now and later on.
the sunrise every morning,the sunset every late afternoon,
the smooth clear air,the ocean of clouds,
the diversity of lives and creatures,
the diversity of food,preventing us from boredom..
the beauty in nature,on earth,in universe and last but not least..in US.
the oceans of tangible,spiritual and ideational things around us:
we are aware of SOME,neglecting MANY,unaware of MOST..
we miss the obvious ,searching for other explanations
than the simplest and most logic one:GOD.
it's time to say 'thank you' what humans always were stingy with.
it's time to finally realize that not we gave and took ,but GOD.
a day in the life of a tomboywe never had foreigners in the village i used to live in.
but once,when i was 13,a middle-aged woman with dark
complexion moved into the house down the road,
where madame ricardi died last summer.
everyone gave her looks from the first day,although she never behaved much different than any normal human i've ever seen..
even my soo simple-minded family,which i thought would
be the most naive and innocent in the world couldn't help but stare at her,
when she rode past on her bike doing the morning route to the shops.
she used to dress in ordinary cloths,but had always a coloured piece
of cloth on her head.i never knew why and i never dared to talk to her and ask,especially since my parents were all of sudden quite hostile and forbad us kids to visit her as it was usual tradition,when someone strange came to our village.but as i mentioned before:we never had foreigners.
everyone lived in the house his grandgrandgrandfather built centuries ago..
one really hot dry summer day aro
much ado about nothingMr. shakespeare!
i'm seriously disappointed in you!
you promised me romeo,
but the only thing i got was prince-not-charming-at-all!
what did juliet get ,what i didn't?!!
i'm more pretty than her..and much more sensible!
i wouldn't ever stay with an idiot,
who is too stupid to come to my window
without setting the dogs on himself!!
just to kill my cousin the next day!!
unforgivably you made him so handsome that not only i melt away...
ohh,how i hate this juliet!
flatter than a pancake and gets prince charming!!!!!
she doesn't deserve him..she is ..she has..she..
i could complain about that inseparable couple forever
without changing anything or being different from any other girl on earth..
