I do not mind the idea of chivalry. However, I do think society has put such an emphasis on men being chivalrous that it has lost its value and can be annoying. Most of the time men do not realize they are acting in a way that makes women feel less valuable because they "are trying to be chivalrous."
I heard a testimonial from a college student who had been on 13 different medications for anxiety, depression, and pain. She dropped out of college because she felt the pressure to thrive and become successful. Unfortunately, the medication became too much for her to handle and as a result she dropped out. So, she tried a new form of therapy called float therapy. Now, she is off ALL the medication and is back in college. So, I decided to do a little research and give it a try.
There have been too many mass shooting in the year of 2019. That's not even counting the ones that were on the news for weeks: Sandy Hook, Columbine, etc. So where does society go from here?
There a lot of issues that are stigmatized in society, whether it be mental illness, drugs, or other various health issues. That is just to name a few and I am sure there are tons more. So, why did society become that way? Was society always so intolerant or naive to these issues?
I was naturally an athletic kid and I wanted to try many different sports. When I was younger I played softball, soccer, gymnastics, horse back riding, and eventually I settled on volleyball. Many people laugh when I decided on volleyball because of my height. However, the back row was created for a reason. Of course I was never going to be a middle blocker and I was not upset by that.
