    I am surprised for your post about “ Why not Mexican music?” because is interesting what you say about Mexican music and also I like how you express yourself in the Mexican cultural.

    • Estimada Sofia:

      Estoy asombrada por tu publicación “Be yourself” por que no tenemos que fingir ser otras personas solo para encajar en un grupo o para caerles bien a otras personas.

      Una frase que usted escribió que se destaca para mi es “when something we pretend another person.” Creo que esto es muy cierto por que no todos tenemos los mismos sentimientos y carácter. Aveces es mejor ser único a no ser uno mismo.

      Gracias por tu escritura. Espero ver lo que escribes a continuación, porque es muy interesante los libros que lees.

    • Dear Sofia:

      I am amazed by your writing, “I do not know if I feel happy or sad” because I learned from people that we should be happy when we win or lose because in life sometimes you win and sometimes you lose.
      A phrase that you write that stands out for me is “sometimes we win high and we feel happy for that” because that is the truth of life that you have to conform to the fence that happens in life.
      Thanks for your writing. I hope and see what you write next, because I want to learn more.

    • Dear sofia
      I am impressed by your post I do not know if I feel happy or sad!!,’’ because… because in the publication I did not know if she felt happy or sad happy because they put her in recognition of the school and sad because her friend also wanted to be there. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is:’’but he also feels sad because his sister is not on that list. I think this is important because… when people are like this they can get depressed thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because… you write about the things that the people these pasando at that moment

    • Dear Sofia:

      I am very amazed by your publication, “A dangerous list”, because you tell us a little about your experience that you had with your friend. What I liked most was that you had an experience to tell in this text.

      A phrase that you wrote that stands out for me is: “They put my name on the best student mural and I feel happy, but at the same time sad for my friend”. I think this is amazing because even though you were in the mural you never felt better than the other people. It was also that even being in the mural you worry about your friend wanted to be in the mural and could not.

      Thanks for your writing. I hope to see what you write next, because I like you to tell your stories. And also because you include your friends.

      Una frase que usted escribió que se destaca para mi es”I know because I’ve seen in the school that there’s always girls who say who is the most beautiful and the ugliest and this affect people because it makes them feel bad.” creo que esto es interesante por que en realidad todas las personas son bellas y nadie es perfecto en la vida aparte todos te critican pero no te tienen que afectar por que en realidad no te afecta en nada no te tienes que poner el saco.

    • Dear Sofia:

      I am excited with your post, “The smallest being in the world but the big in the heart,” because this actions happen a lot. Our parents try to found us a husband or a wife but depending the social class. We need to stop that this is not good for us.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “So far central idea in “ El Ratoncito” remind me that sometimes our parents want to find the perfect husband for us( Ladies or Man).” I think this is amazing and sad because we want a future but our parents insist in give us the person they want in our lives. We can begin doing something like helping our parents understanding that they can not do this.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because this topics are topics we need to do and know about them. Do not let that your parents decide for you. Choose what you want in your future because your going to live it.

I also like how you pointed out that your friend was scared but accepted the fear ad got over it. I found this article that has men answer the question, “what are we afraid of”. I think you will like it.

    • Hi Sofia, I like how you point out that men are often uncomfortable admitting fear or weakness. Do you think this is a byproduct of modern society’s encouragement of toxic masculinity and gender-classifying emotions?

    • Sofia,
      This is an interesting thing how most men consciously or unconsciously do not show emotion. It is very interesting how the biological aspects of trying to attract women, the roles of testosterone, and how men are raised leads to the outcome of most men not showing emotion. I have a scientific article from Psychology Today that describes some of the rationale behind why men are not emotional: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/he-speaks-she-speaks/201501/why-don-t-many-men-show-their-emotions.

    • Sofia,
      This is an interesting topic. It is such a common stigma in society that guys cannot show weakness or they are “feminine.” Often times men will put up a front and not show emotion. What are some things we could do to change this stigma? How can women aid in this overlooked problem men face?

      Here is an interesting article about this topic.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “We must be brave at all times.” I think this is very true because it is true that we must all be brave at all times and in any place. No matter how difficult the situation, one must always stand and no matter how scared you are, do not let yourself be overcome by that fear.
