Dina’s love is evident when she thinks, “I began to love Heidi that night in the dish room, but who is to say that I hadn’t begun to love her the first time I met her” (Packer 310)? Even though she feels this way, she refuses to tell Heidi and when Heidi announces that she is proud to be a lesbian at the school’s “Coming Out Day,” Dina withdraws from Heidi and does not spend time with her anymore since she does not want anyone to know she is gay (Packer 311). Eventually, their relationship ends, and Dina never discloses to Heidi that she is a lesbian and loves her. However, in “The Alumni Interview,” the love life is strained because the protagonist is open about his sexuality, but his partner is not. Unlike Dina, in the narrative “The Alumni Interview”, the protagonist Ian is honest about his sexual orientation and admits he is in love with Thom.
The description she gave of her mother's death was somehow unreal, sounding more like a scene from a daytime soap than from real life. According to Carol, her mother had suddenly complained of feeling unwell and told Carol to call her father from work. He took Gladys to the hospital and returned many hours later, alone. When he walked in the door, he told Carol that her mother was dead. Carol would recall that she screamed and ran to him.
Through her mother’s criticisms, her lack of confidence, and her desire to fit in with the community, Charlotte is shown to be insecure. Charlotte’s insecurity is a partial result of her mother’s disapproving and unresponsive nature. Unlike Charlotte’s father, who listens attentively and enthusiastically to Charlotte’s day at school, Charlotte’s mother shows no interest. She simply gives a half-hearted comment, “without emphasis of any kind”(71), then changes the subject. Additionally, when Charlotte is distressed over Ms. Hancock's death, her mother gets irritated and blames her for “disturbing the even tenor of [their] home”(80).
She shows her low self-esteem referring to her leg when she tells Jim, “To me it sounded like-thunder!” (The Glass Menagerie 1.7.35-36). Not only does she have low self-esteem, but her self-esteem is so low that she could not handle finishing Business School as she drops out. Through Laura’s small lies to Amanda, her mother, Amanda finds out and explains while quoting Laura’s teacher, “ And she said, “…..The first time we gave a speed-test, she broke down completely- was sick at the stomach and almost had to be carried into the wash-room!...”.” (The Glass Menagerie, 1.2.42-47 ). This quote supports the characteristic of low self-esteem. Self-esteem is how one shows themselves to society.

The Fault in our Stars Held prisoner by the cancer flooding her lungs with fluid Hazel has lost her ability to interact with people, Hazel is lost to her books and herself, feeling guilty. She is aware that there is nothing she did to cause the cancer but she only tries to decrease the pain she believes that she is somehow causing her family. She gives in to death and gives up rather than make a profound impact on the people around her. She begins to explain this as she narrates “Late in the winter of my seventeenth year, my mother decided I was depressed, presumably because I rarely left the house, spent quite a lot of time in bed, read the same book over and over, ate infrequently, and devoted quite a bit of my abundant free time thinking about death,” Green, p.78. She realizes that she spends precious time obsessing about death, she is wasting her life grieving about something she cannot control, predict or change.
The short story "Detached Belongings" is written by Dilruba Z. Ara. It is about a woman’s struggle and search for her identity after she moves to Sweden and is forced to be hospitalized when she is pregnant due to a rare disease that ultimately ends in her losing her child.
