Contradiction... Exploration six

I think the author of " Shrouded in Contradiction" feels conflicted is because where she lives, Identity plays a huge part in their lives. I think she shares this conflict because she wants the readers to know just how much something like identity can play a huge role in certain places and area in the world.
   A contradiction that I have struggled with is myself and how I am way too nice. I love and hate this at the same time because, for me, when you are nice and friendly, you can get far with that and make a lot of different friends, but one thing I hate about being the "nice guy", is you always get used, people walk all over you like a door mat, and it seems like a lot of the time you finish last, people never put your feelings into consideration, this struggle has made me realized a lot about my self, but it also makes me who i am today, and i am okay with that.

Part 2.
My favorite passage that i liked was the one by Aung San Suu Kyi . It was was really moving to me.
On Febuary 6, 2010 she got official approval from Burmese elcetion commision to stand in parliamentary poll in April. There also is a movie out called The Lady that is coming out and it is a bout Aung San Suu Kyi.


  1. I completely feel your pain about being the nice guy (well girl for me..). It does feel like you can get walked over, a lot. The movie coming out will probably be pretty interesting since so much was accomplised by her.

  2. I agree with your statement "Identity plays a huge part in their lives". For them clothes is a part of their culture and if they don't follow it they get ridiculed.

    1. If we remain to to ourselves and our causes we can do anything.

    3. I agree with what you state when you talk about her feeling restricted because of the area she lives in. In addition I know what you mean about the "nice guy" thing. You can only get so far with politeness and good manners, at some point you have to put your foot down to the people that may use you. You may lose friends in the process but if they're using you in the first place then they are not your true friends.

  3. I would like to see that movie aswell I really liked Aung's speech.
