Letting Go of a Friendship
Learn the signs it may be time to end a long-time companionship
How do you know when a friendship is on its last legs? If a pal has done something unforgivable or hurtful, or is simply a constant nuisance, the sanity-saving thing to do may be to cut her off, says Florence Isaacs, author of Toxic Friends, True Friends. That's what Kathryn Hoots, 42, did. She always thought her friends would be happy for her when she got married and started a family. But when one of them didn't seem to be, it threw Kathryn for a loop. "This one friend liked going out and having fun when we were both single, but as soon as I got married and had a child, she seemed to lose interest," says Kathryn, who has a 2-year-old and is currently expecting twins.
During the course of their 13-year friendship, the woman always steered conversations to her own problems, never taking much interest in Kathryn's, especially after she became a mom. "She never wanted to meet my son and she even told me that I wasn't the maternal type," says Kathryn, who lives in New York City. That was the turning point. Kathryn had put up with her friend's self-absorbed behavior for years, but the comment made her wonder why. By the time the friend called to apologize for the offensive remark, Kathryn had already begun to reassess their relationship. "She just didn't seem able to be happy for me, and that's not a real friend," says Kathryn. "I couldn't put any more time or effort in after that." The two are no longer friends.
Kathryn made a quick, clean cut, but there are several ways to let go of a friendship, whether you just want to put some distance between you or sever the ties completely. If you're not sure what you want to do, put pen to paper. "Draw a line down the middle of a page," suggests Isaacs. "On one side, list the good things that you get out of the friendship; on the other, the bad. If the bad outnumber the good, and you're not getting something substantive enough from the relationship, it's time to act."
You can start by being slower to return calls and emails, says Dr. Bonior. "The only way the slow fade will be successful, however, is if the person picks up on your signals. Otherwise the friend might try harder to get you back. In either case, it can be a good first step."
And while it may be tempting to avoid any awkwardness by pulling a sudden vanishing act, like Kathryn did, don't. It prevents you from having closure, explains Susan Shapiro Barash, author of Toxic Friends: The Antidote for Women Stuck in Complicated Friendships. "You'll both be left with unresolved feelings," she explains. "As with romantic relationships, you must have that difficult conversation about why you don't want to see this friend. Try saying, 'Look, we've been good friends for a long time, but maybe we should take a break for a while because…' and gently lay out the problem as you see it. There is a risk/reward in doing this. You might lose her forever, or she might say, 'I'm sorry,' in which case the relationship can be repaired." If it is the end, be prepared to go through a mourning period afterward, says Dr. Bonior. "Feelings of sadness, anger, confusion and regret can last for weeks or even months."
It's even harder to make a break when a pal is part of a larger circle of friends, because there's the chance you might alienate yourself from the group. It's almost like a divorce, in a way: Friends feel as if they must choose one or the other. Your best bet? Form an alliance with those who share your feelings, says Dr. Bonior. "Talk to the others. Say, 'Sometimes I feel like Linda is belittling me; do any of you feel that way?' If they do, then talk to the person about her behavior as a group. There's strength in numbers." And if they don't, assure them that you have no problem with them remaining friends with the person—even if you're not. It worked for Kathryn. When her pals go out with the woman she let go, there are no hard feelings. "The bond I have with my other friends is solid enough that I don't feel threatened by their friendship with her," she says. "The upside for me? I don't have to deal with her anymore, and I haven't lost any pals because of it."

8 Important Reasons To Let Go Of People Who No Longer Play An Important Part In Your Life

Julien L. Balmer
Jul 28, 20149:58am
There comes a point in every person's life when he or she parts ways with someone: ex, friend and anyone in between.
Upon first meeting this person, there's a sweet beginning, but once you come to really know each other and grow comfortable, you suddenly realize that the relationship no longer brings any particular value to your life and is perhaps, even detrimental.
Sometimes, we hold on to people purely based on how long we have known them. Time can tie people together, but if you feel as though there's nothing substantial keeping you connected, time is not a strong enough reason to hold on to something that's simply no longer worth holding onto.
We grow complacent with people once we're comfortable with them. But, hanging onto someone for the pure sake of it and because you don't know anything else isn't a good enough reason.
Fear is another reason why we can't move on. There's the fear of being alone and not being able to find someone else; fear of someone using our deepest and darkest secrets as blackmail; fear of the hate and tension that will ensue; fear of regret once someone is gone.
Sometimes, things are better left as mere memories. You can try to change things back to how they were or try to create things to be the way you want them, but you'll never be truly happy because it'll never be anything like how things once were.
If anything, there's now too much pressure and expectation in the air to recreate what you both once had. Instead, hold on to and cherish the memories, but move forward. Be thankful for what a friendship or relationship brought you and taught you.
Beyond that, friendships and relationships — whilst they do have their downfalls and can require fixing — should essentially come naturally.
If a person isn't bringing something significant to your life, not treating you how you'd like or isn't the type of person you want him or her to be, it's a clear sign that you need distance.
While it would be selfish of you to not accept a person for whom he or she is, it would be unfair for you to have to endure a friendship or relationship that isn't cultivating a better you.
Now that we have come to ascertain why you may be holding on, let's make it clear why you need to let go:
1. Let go because things are not the same anymore.
People simply grow a part, which is perfectly normal. You realize you want different things, no longer share the same interests, no longer understand and no longer connect.
Sometimes, it's a matter of accepting that it takes time to let go, rather than holding on to something that just can't be brought back, was lost a long time ago or perhaps, was never really there at all.
It's difficult to hold on to people in life, but remember that you're destined to meet different people along your journey who will bring you happiness, sorrow, pain and joy.

2. Let go because the trust and loyalty isn't there.
If you know in your heart that you can't trust this person and he or she cannot be loyal, then you need to ask yourself why this person is in your life. Trust and loyalty are the foundation of any friendship and relationship.
If they're not present, it may only lead to paranoia, frustration, tension and anger that you're better off without feeling.
Find someone with whom you can share your deepest darkest secrets and you know that after walking away, his or her lips will remain tightly sealed. Find someone whose faithfulness to you will be unquestionable because his or her actions, rather than empty promises, bring you a peace of mind.

3. Let go because you are unclear of where things stand.
Engaging in an undefined friendship or relationship is confusing because you don't know what you mean to the person, if anything at all. If the person can't make you feel as though you're significant, reflect on why you're allowing someone to treat this way.
Be in the company of someone who is proud to have you in his or her life and will make that known to you and the rest of the world. Be in the company of someone who won't gamble with your heart and mind simply because he or she knows you're not going anywhere.

4. Let go if the friendship or relationship is damaging to you.
If the friendship/relationship is making you unhappy or miserable, it's time to bid the person farewell. We must not allow ourselves to feel trapped and used to being treated far less well than we deserve.
If someone is putting you down, competing with you, not paying attention to you, not caring about you, abusing you, embarrassing you in front of others, making you question yourself, belittling you or simply just not caring about you, remove the negativity from your life as soon as possible. Respect yourself enough to be able to walk away.

5. Let go if you simply don't see eye to eye.
It is hard to make a relationship work if you can't ever agree or see each other's points of view. If the one thing you can agree on is that neither of you can agree, it might be time to walk away.
In many friendships and relationships, people come together through unlikely chances, through their differences and lack of similarities. Therefore, it can work, but if you find that it's a significant source of many of your disputes and tensions, get out now.

6. Let go if you're the one fighting to make it work.
If your relationship makes you feel as though you're the only one putting in effort, time and love, reflect on whether or not it's worth it. If someone truly loves you, cares for you or wants and needs you, the person will never allow you to invest disproportionate effort.
Find someone who makes you feel worthwhile and worthy. Find someone who fights to have you in his or her life. Find someone who knows how lucky he or she is to have you.
Find someone who acknowledges everything you have done and will do. Don't waste your time on anything less.

7. Let go if he or she doesn't encourage you or believe in you.
If you find that your relationship isn't providing you with support, reflect on what the person is providing. You deserve someone who will be there to encourage you throughout your journey and believe in you maybe even more than you believe in yourself.

8. Let go if the relationship isn't bringing you what you want and need.
Ask yourself whether you can do without the relationship or whether it's something you unquestionably want and deserve. Sometimes, there's this belief that we can be “too fussy” with what we want from others in life, but then again, why should we settle for anything less than happiness?
Don't ever allow someone to make you feel needy for wanting someone who will love, care and support you, someone who will listen and give you insightful advice, someone who wants the same things, someone you can trust and will be loyal to you, someone who believes so strongly in you and your capabilities. Just someone who makes you feel like you're someone.

5 signs it's time to let go of a friendship
Ending a friendship can be hard — but it can be rewarding too.

Why can't we be friends? (Photo: Romrf/Shutterstock)
There are 7 billion human beings on planet Earth, so if you are friends with someone who makes you feel crummy every time you're in their presence; directly (or passive-aggressively) insults you; is a racist or sexist; a liar; uses you for your work position, financial ability, rides, or any other aspect, it's time to get rid of them. As research has shown, who you surround yourself with matters — you take on at least some of that aspects of the people you spend time with, so if someone is negative and mean to you, it's not only bad for your mental health, it could lead to physical issues too.
At the same time, as you get older it can be difficult to make new friends (though not impossible; I wrote earlier about how to make friends as a grown-up). So how do you know if it's time to say goodbye to a friend — and how do you do it? (And I feel like I have some real bona fides giving this advice; I've separated from three very good friends over the years. Remember, that just makes room for positive, good friends in your life!)
Fights are OK, not listening isn't: A good, honest friendship between two adult human beings is bound to be fraught at times, so if you generally have a good relationship with your friend, and have occasional blowouts, realize that's perfectly normal — and it's pretty great that you and your friend can speak openly and honestly. As with any relationship, it's great to talk it out (and reconnect) after a fight, once you have cooled off. But if you routinely argue with your friend, and he or she refuses to listen or acknowledge your point of view, or the friend repeatedly brings up topics about which you always disagree simply to provoke you, or talks over you (basically talking at you but not with you), that's disrespectful. There's a difference between honest agreement and provocation.
Lying is not OK: If your friend lies to you — whether it's about who she is, her job, her family, or other aspects of her life, get out now. There are a surprisingly high number of liars in the world, and if a friend can't be honest about who they are with you, they have bigger mental health issues than just lying. Liars need people in their life who will listen to their stories, and a friend in this instance is just someone who will listen to and believe their stories. But that's not a real friendship. Of course, I'm not talking about white lies here — how much you spent on your vacation, or whether someone's butt looks big in a pair of pants (though if your good friends can't tell you that stuff, who will?). If you find yourself in a relationship with a liar, that's reason enough to end the friendship.
Demeaning you is never OK: It should go without saying, but if your friend is abusing you verbally — that includes insults, snide comments, and saying negative things to other friends or coworkers — end it, now.
Using you is not acceptable: If someone is only your friend for the benefits it brings them — access to certain places or people, money, rides, or freebies (food, yoga classes), they are not your friend; they are using you.
Not acting like a friend means they're not your friend: If you are constantly doing things for your "friend" — meeting at their place or taking them out, calling or emailing flying to see them, sending them gifts on their birthday — and they don't return those things in any similar way, that isn't a real friendship either.
Sometimes some of these things can be hard to see clearly, but if you are feeling uncomfortable about a friendship, take a close look and ask yourself if one or more of the things above are happening — after being friends for a long time, these instances might be hard to see. That was the case with me and two so-called friends that I had known since childhood and high school, respectively. Once you are honest with yourself about the fact that your friends aren't really acting like people who love and care for you, there's only one thing to do: break up with them.
The only way that works is being straightforward and concise. I ended one of my friendships in person (messier than I wanted it to be, but effective) and another via email. Keep it simple. Tell the person you want out of the friendship. I wished both of my friends the best, but told them that we weren't cut out to be friends anymore. After a minimal back-and-forth in both cases (via email and in person), I cut the discussion off. And I refused any kind of contact for months (and in one case almost a year) later.
Once you've had your conversation, be strong — it's tempting to go back and explain yourself. Don't. We all have the right to end relationships that are hurtful to us for no other reason than that they are hurtful. You don't need to justify moving on.
How do you know you've made the right decision to break up with a friend? For me, immediately afterwards, I felt an overwhelming sense of happiness and freedom. The relief was overwhelming — though I did feel some guilt too, and that's normal. But when you make the right decision, you'll know it.


Letting go is one of the hardest things to figure out in life. As your emotions usually cloud your logic, and because your feelings make it harder for you to concentrate, it seems like the art of letting go can be confusing and complicated.
“You will find that it is necessary to let things go; simply for the reason that they are heavy. So let them go, let go of them.” ― C. JoyBell C.
Should you let go of a particular person, of your current job, of your past feelings or of your resentment? Or should you hold on and let them consume you altogether? These 11 signs tell you to let go and let yourself live:
1. You’re expected to sacrifice your personal values and change into someone you’re really not.
In this life, your personal values and your vision are the things that make you who you are fundamentally. If your job or your lover or your friend forces you to be someone you’re not, let go. You are never going to be truly anyway.
2. Your trust is continuously broken.
You’re vulnerable when you’re in love with an idea, a person, an event, or an accomplishment. They say that loving is letting the other party hurt you, but you’re trusting them not to do this, right? Well, if your lover consistently hurts you, or your loved ones consistently don’t care about your feelings, let go. You’ve already been hurt countless times; what makes you think the pain will stop if you continue holding on?
3. Staying in it always makes you feel broken, depressed and frustrated.
You truly dislike your job, your lover or your business. You don’t even know why you entered this in the first place. You hate who you’re with or what you’re doing. You’re not motivated to continue with it.
4. You feel inferior.
Your self-worth is always under-appreciated. It seems like you never feel good anymore. You’re always taken for granted. Everyone expects you to show up, but when you’re already there, you’re not even respected! When it seems like you’re the only one doing the chasing, please do yourself a favor and just stop. Doing this is like beating yourself up everyday—just let go.
5. You justify that it’s worth holding on, when it’s really not.
“Oh, he forgot my birthday because she was busy…”
“He never introduced me to his friends because he tells me they’re not his real friends anymore…”
“My business partner didn’t mean to get us bankrupt; I’m sure he has a plan…”
“I love my job even though I’m always stressed and I never get a chance to spend time with my loved ones…right?”
Look at yourself and really listen to what you’re saying: do you honestly believe yourself? No. So let go.
6. You can’t remember the last time you were happy.
When was the last time you were truly happy—as in really content, really satisfied and really comfortable with yourself? Don’t force yourself, my friend. If you really can’t remember, it’s time to let go and move on.
7. You find that you’re always the one making sacrifices.
Are you always the one who has to give up more time? More money? More input? Are you consistently the one who experiences more pain? More frustration? More anxiety? Go ahead and do yourself a favor and stop chasing.
8. Express yourself—when was the last time you did that?
If you find that your opinions are always suppressed and your feelings are never acknowledged, why are you still holding on? You know you’re better than this.
9. You refuse to acknowledge the present because it hurts too much.
Instead of facing the present situation, you choose to live in the past because in the past, happy memories are there to comfort you. You live in a delusion and you try to fool yourself into thinking that everything will work out in the end, even though every fiber in your being knows that it’s not.
10. There’s inconsistency. Every single time.
When the person you’re dealing with has a gift with words, it’s so easy to take the back seat and allow yourself to be swayed. However, keep in mind that not everything can be fixed via words. If he’s saying one thing and then acting another way, it’s usually a bad sign.
Your business partner says he’ll fix it but he never makes an effort to do so? Let go.
Your lover promises that he’ll never cheat again, but he does. Let go.
Your loved ones promise that they’ll act according to what makes you happy, but they don’t? Let go.
11. You’ve already exhausted all your efforts but everything stays the same.
When you’ve done everything that you could, when all the promises that were made are just empty words, when it’s not worth your time, your money, your tears or your frustration anymore…
Let go.
You’re not living in a fairy tale. People break promises. Lovers hurt you. Your business partners can fool you. Not everyone out there is looking out for you.
Remove the toxic thought that holding on can change things.
Let go and let live. You know you deserve to.

Letting Go

...Letting Go Many people hate to let things go. People find security and comfort in their possessions and the company they keep. We have memories and good emotions associated with the possessions in our life. The most painful experience in life is to let go of someone you love. But allowing yourself to let go is an emotional thing, and as with anything emotional, it’s not always simple. If all this is ripped away from a person, it can have a very negative effect on that person’s life. In Faulkner’s short story, “A Rose for Emily,” everything that a person knows is gradually taken from her has gradually taken away leading to her madness. Miss Emily, the main character in this short story, is an example of the Old South. When Emily was a child her father apparently indoctrinated her with his Old South values, manners, and customs. Not only is her appearance a symbol of the past but the place she called home is also very old fashioned. Miss Emily’s house looked decomposed, and smelled of dust and disuse. Miss Emily stays the same while the next generation, with its more prominent ideas are becoming more visible and established. Miss Emily not only has a hard time of letting material things go, but she also has a tough time of letting the people in her life leave her. Miss Emily loves her father very much, but his death devastates her. Now that Miss Emily is alone for the first time in her entire life, it brings her down to earth...

The summer breeze became still and the sky was a pale blue, lots of cars where passing through the sunset boulevard. I had gone to the liquor store nearby to purchase a small bottle of whiskey, to ease the nerves a little. We had stop by one of the buildings to sit down and talk and drink.

Go Variatns

...variants[edit] The difficulty in defining the rules of Go has led to the creation of many subtly different rulesets. They vary in areas like scoring method, ko, suicide, handicap placement, and how neutral points are dealt with at the end. These differences are usually small enough to maintain the character and strategy of the game, and are typically not considered variants. Different rulesets are explained in Rules of Go. In some of the examples below, the effects of rule differences on actual play are minor, but the tactical consequences are substantial. Tibetan Go[edit] The starting position for Tibetan Go Tibetan Go is played on a 17×17 board, and starts with six stones (called Bo) from each color placed on the third line as shown. White makes the first move.[1] There is a unique ko rule: a stone may not be played at an intersection where the opponent has just removed a stone. This ko rule is so different from other major rulesets that it alone significantly changes the character of the game. For instance, snapbacks must be delayed by at least one move, allowing an opponent the chance to create life. Finally, a player who occupies or surrounds all four corner points (the 1-1 points) receives a bonus of 40 points, and if he controls the center point also, he receives a further bonus of 10 points.

Mini-Case 2 Letting Go of Lehman Brothers

...Mini-case 2 Letting Go of Lehman Brothers Question 1: Do you believe that the U.S. government treated some financial institutions differently during the crisis? Was that appropriate? To assure the financial stability and viability of the U.S. financial system, the U.S. Federal Reserve, the Comptroller of the Currency and the Federal Deposit Insurance Company (FDIC) have the responsibility to support, protect and buffer financial institutions whose failures, they believe, might have a significant effect on the market as a whole. Before making a decision about whether an institution should be poured capital into, the Federal Reserve will consider the institution`s collateral and the ability to repay loans. The Federal Reserve said that the companies that did receive bailouts, such as AIG, Fannie Mae and, Freddie Mac, clearly had the collateral and showed great promise of paying them back in the future, while Lehman Brothers did not. When Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke was asked how the Lehman case differed from that of American International Group Inc., which received $182 billion in taxpayer aid, Bernanke said there was a fundamental difference. They believed AIG, as the biggest insurance company in the U.S., had valuable assets which could back up the Fed's emergency loan. So the Federal Reserve will absolutely be paid back by AIG. However, Richard S. Fuld Jr., the former chairman and chief executive officer of Lehman Brother, said that they did have the......

Fairness Is Good Management

...FAIRNESS IS GOOD MANAGEMENT Fairness is just good management. We already know that if you want to be a good manager you have to be fair to all. But what does that mean? And how can you be fair more often to more people? What Does Fairness Mean? It is part of the quirkiness of the English language that fair means according to the relative merits of each or consistent with rules and logic. However, it also means moderately good or satisfactory. So a fair manager can mean either one who treats others fairly or one who is only moderately good as a manager. Our goal is the first meaning. Why Is Fairness Good Management? When asked, a group of almost 2200 people reported fairness as the most important trait of a boss for who whom they would want to work. When you treat your employees fairly they spend less time worrying about who else is getting an unfair share. They don't spend a lot of time looking for ways to increase their own share. They spend less time looking for another job. And they spend more time working for you and getting more done. When you treat others fairly two things happen. Your own employees notice and respect you for it. It reinforces their belief that you are treating them fairly and will continue to do so. Second, the other people who you treat fairly will respond in kind. You will get better cooperation from them. That makes your job and the job of your employees easier too.

Cheating and Nascar: Whos at the Wheel

...Analyze the motivational factors that promote cheating in NASCAR I believe that the largest motivational factor of any NASCAR team owner, crew member, or driver is that of winning. Each team represents not only a number on the side of a car but the entire organization, the sponsors, the driver, the crew chief, their crew and their families. NASCAR is big into the family values and your team is your family; you never let your family down. To win a race at any track is to bring honor to your team, revenue to your sponsors, and notoriety to your name. To win for oneself may not be enough motivation to cause a driver to cheat; however, most often times the driver is not the one that sets up the car, which is the crew and crew chief’s duty. Drivers can aide in the facilitation of cheating by requesting that their car be tweaked to their liking, how this is done however is the crew’s job. To win for a cause or for a team gives more pressure to win because there are other people counting on your success. Other motivational factors that promote cheating within NASCAR are that everyone knows everyone cheats. Each and every team in the NASCAR garage has tried and tested the very vague rules of the governing body, sometimes they get caught and others they don’t. To the teams it is worth a chance to try and get away with a tweak that may not be entirely within the rule book and get that little bit of an edge than to finish last on race day. The more lenient the attitude is......

Hartley Leslie Poles Hartley (1895—1972), the son of a solicitor, was educated at Harrow and Balliol College, Oxford and for more than twenty years from 1932 was a fiction reviewer for such periodicals as the Spectator, Sketch, Observer and Time and Tide. He published his first book, a collection of short stories entitled "Night Fears" in 1924. His novel "Eustace and Hilda" (1947) was recognized immediately as a major contribution to English fiction; "The Go-Between" (1953) and "The Hireling" (1957) were later made into internationally successful films. In 1967 he published "The Novelist's Responsibility", a collection of critical essays. L.P. Hartley was a highly skilled narrator and all his tales are admirably told. "W.S." comes from "The Complete Short Stories of L.P. Hartley" published posthumously in 1973. At the beginning of the story the author introduces the main character of it who is Walter Streeter. The first postcard he receives is from Forfar and is anonymous. Usually he answers to the letters but this one didn’t have any address so Walter was relieved that he doesn’t need to answer to it. The photograph of Forfar was uninteresting and he tore it up. About ten days later, Walter receives another postcard, but this time it was from Berwick –on –Tweed. After reading the second letter Walter began to wonder if the sender was a woman or a man. After some time he dismissed the stirrings of curiosity that...

Cheating on Nascar

...Reflection on article Cheating and NASCAR The size of the organization presents a challenging ethical dilemma because of the vast reach the organization has within society, commercial/retail industries, and the media. The case states that NASCAR’s “television ratings are second only to football, has 75 million fans, and over $2 billion in licensed products” (Baucus, Norton, Davis-Sramek, Meek; 2008, p.379). An organization that large should exercise due diligence regarding ethical practices, but NASCAR is quite the contrary. The two arguments within the article pose critical questions that are the crux of the industry’s success. If NASCAR opted to align its behavior with more ethical standards their biggest stakeholders, fans and sponsors, would be negatively impacted. The sponsors would not sustain their investment if the return diminished because the number of fans attending the races and purchasing licensed retail items declined. Likewise, if the number and amount of sponsorships declined, the races would become less exciting and much less glamorous. This catch-22 would then deter the attention of the broadcasting media who would refocus on other sporting events. With all that said, we have yet to consider the impact on the many geographical racing communities that a decline in the industry would cause. Across the country, the many towns hosting businesses that make their living off the NASCAR industry would be forced to close or redirect their business......

...PROBLEM PREVENTION PLAN Introduction Rules and procedures for the classroom, regardless of the level, are imperative and will be used accordingly in order for a classroom to be effectively managed. The most effect approach to classroom management is effective instruction (Evertson & Pool, 2008). Starting the school year with rules and procedures will set a standard that will set a tone for the remaining school year. This customized plan will focus on a first grade classroom. Rules and Procedures Since students do not share the same knowledge or behavioral characteristics, the classroom will support the diverse learner in many ways. Van Brummel suggests, “To create an optimal learning situation, indicate your expectations clearly.” One of these supports will be classroom rules. These rules will be for the entire classroom, which will be set at the beginning of the school year. The rules will be simple and easy to understand for young students. The rules are as follows: 1. Respect everyone in the class. 2. Follow directions. 3. Be polite. 4. Raise your hand. Respecting everyone in the class is rule that is to include many aspects of classroom activity. This rule can include offensives such as interrupting and disruptive behavior. A classroom has to behave in a way which depicts Christian character. Students are also expected to follow directions, but it is an important class rule, because they need to be able to be ready and have the...

Nature of Argument

...Week 1 Discussion The Nature of Argument After reading the "Preface," "Introduction," and Chapter 1 in your course text, The Rulebook for Arguments, consider the nature and purpose of argument. Consider the different forms that arguments can take. As you prepare for this Discussion, be sure to focus on rules one through seven presented in Chapter 1. With these thoughts in mind: * Select two of the rules that either you or one of your associates have broken in the past. * Illustrate an example of an incorrect and a correct use of each of these two rules. * Discuss why the rules are important in formulating strong arguments. One of the rules that I have recently broken myself was in my last course. For an assignment I used language and words to further emphasis the point of my paper. Now, after reading thru the 7 rules to consider when posing an argument I now understand that use of loaded language is not an effective way to back any of my premises. After thinking about this further, breaking this rule only allowed me to present my paper in a opinioned manner which clearly is going to take away from the validity of the points/issue being addressed. A second rule that is overly annoying to me in real-life, is when a member of senior management does not use definite, specific, or concrete language. Reading that this is one of the general rules in posing an argument this rule really hit home for me. From my experience, I often find that when I asks questions...
