There are numerous times throughout the novel where Soda appears plagued with a problem, but he'd never let his problems reach his others, if not to put more of a burden on their shoulders. Sodapop does appear to share his problems with Ponyboy though, Pony being the one that said that ¨He never let mom and dad how he felt though because we never had enough money and usually we had a hard time making ends meet.¨(Hilton 40) Soda seems to attempt to ignore his own problems in order to benefit others. Bottling up your problems and maintaining a positive attitude in order to break the gloomy atmosphere the Curtis family lives in is a tall order to fill, that Sodapop graciously took up the role of most of his life. And while it previously states in the beginning chapters of The Outsiders that Ponyboy was Sodapop's listening ear, further down the storyline it is revealed by Ponyboy himself that this is not the case.
When people ask him to tell them of his long tale and how he came to be standing in front of them, he often says another time, or tells them. At first, by him saying “another time” one might think he is suffering, however from further narration from Odysseus I’ve come to believe something else.

While it would be sad being around a dying person it would not be uncomfortable. At that point I do not think my comfort matters. All my efforts should be turned towards that individual.
On the 10th our own land hove into sight… but now an enticing sleep came onto me, bone weary from working the vessels sheet myself, not let up never testing the ropes to any other male…” (book 10, page 156, PDF). Odysseus’ pride made him a self-centered leader, and he didn’t allow his men to contribute to their returning of home. Odysseus was too full of pride to allow anyone else to take credit for his doing of bringing all of his men back home, which eventually caused his men to betray him. Odysseus was very boastful, and a man full of extreme pride. From this we can grasp that he had an elaborate way of trying to achieve his goals, which usually involved only him and not allowing anyone else to contribute to his actions and

There was no way I could do it. Not when I was able to see Françoi’s eyes, the ones that held burning passion the ones with a desire to live How did I not see his eyes? All my planning, I thought I knew him, yet the only thing I had been looked at (concerning him) during the past year have been his hands, his feet and hands.
