A Look At Identity - 1,495 words
Identity is a set of characteristics by which an individual is recognizable. As time passes each identity is individually shaped by these characteristics. At an early age, parents start the identity process by giving their children names. It is in fact your parents that truly shape your identity.

This may sound silly, but let me explain. Awh ...

Fish - 1,307 words

What started as a pastime, has now To the question, "How hard is it to breed Bettas?": We seem to think that the most difficult parts are, carefully watching the breeding couple from mating until the eggs hatch (usually about 2-3 days), and being diligent with live feeding of fry until they can eat other foods. We generally introduce a pair on Thursdays; by Monday night there are fry! Of course, you must be prepared to spend a lot of space and time if you do want to raise young to adults.

None - 681 words
There has long existed a standing debate about whether women should have an abortion or put their children up for adoption. The people who argue against abortions say that the procedure represents the intentional murder of an unborn child. In their eyes, you take away the rights of that person by eliminating them before they even have a chance at life. The other side states that some men and women will not make good parents. They feel that if the mother and father of the child think that they will harm the child in some way because they cannot take care of it or if they feel that the mother cannot survive childbirth, then those parents have the authority to say that they don't want to have t ...

Narcissists, Inverted Narcissists And Schizoids - 1,610 words
... to get emotionally intimate with the narcissist - he threatens the grandiose belief that no one but the narcissist can possess the good object (the narcissist himself). Only the narcissist can own himself, have access to himself, possess himself. This is the only way to avoid seething envy and certain self-annihilation. Perhaps it is clearer now why narcissists react as raving madmen to ANYTHING, however minute, however remote that seems to threaten their grandiose fantasies, the only protective barrier between themselves and their envy. There is nothing new in trying to link narcissism to schizophrenia. Freud did as much in his "On Narcissism" (1914). Klein's contribution was the introd ...
