The majority of the arguments leading to fights that take place between humans is routed in the neglect by both parties to manage conflicts thoroughly and effectively. Despite this, there are several options that target specific conflicts, personalities, and relationships. In the movie Ordinary People, the Jarrett family made up of two parents and their son go through several traumatic events that lead to relationship-ending conflicts and fights.

However, when Doug arrives at Ralph’s house he decides not to kill him because of the physical and mental state Ralph has deteriorated to. He’s already dead in Doug’s eyes. What people experience in childhood affects them into adulthood. Firstly, Doug randomly woke up on his 48th birthday and decided he had to kill Ralph. Doug lying next to his wife with children of his own sleeping in the other room woke up and decided that he “will arise and go now and kill Ralph Underhill” (Bradbury 1).
For instance, after the Mariners crew was taken from him because of his decision to kill the albatross he was forced to “look upon the rotting deck,” where all of his “dead men lay” (Coleridge 7). The Mariner is tortured by his isolation whenever he looks back at his mistakes. His choice to kill the albatross forced him into isolation which slowly eroded his will to live. Similar to the way the Mariner was tortured by his mistake, Victor is led to his demise after he “swears...to pursue the demon who caused this misery” (Frankenstein 193). Victors isolation corrupted his mind into thinking that the only path left to take was to hunt down his creation until it ended in his own or the creature’s death.
However, in the first story, “Enemies,” the complete lack of an attempt by Jensen and Strunk to resolve their conflict using peaceful and healthy conversation, or even going to a superior, demonstrates that normal social contracts have begun to break down. Instead they get into a fist fight over it, and Jensen breaks Strunk’s nose. It is obvious that O’Brien is showing us how the desperation of war dismantles social codes and norms. Jensen’s assumption that Strunk will try to enact a sort of eye-for-an-eye revenge, is a complete breakdown of most social codes. It drives him utterly insane and causes him to break his own nose in front of Strunk to try to make things “even.” Unbenounced to Jensen, Strunk just assumes that
When he found out that Karen had passed away, Conrad went into chaos mode. He went through the doctor’s office knocking things off the shelves showing the violence of the situation. All the family could have used the method of state. The Jarrett family went entirely under stress mode when they found out about their son in the awful boating accident. They had very poor communications skills after the death, because they were all extremely upset.
Ignoren people and their actions have often horrendous effect on the people around them, and no one is immune. In the Greek Tragedy Oedipus, Oedipus’ fate and lack of knowledge and arrogance leaves him and his family in shambles. Upon finding out that he is not only the reason everything in his kingdom of Thebes is dying, Oedipus also realises that he's has inadvertently fulfilled a prophecy saying that he will kill his father and mary his mother. Driven to the point of extreme anguish his wife/ mother changes her self, upon seeing that Oedipus gouges his eyes out. Later on in Sophocles’ Greek tragedy Antigone Oedipus’ two sons have killed each other in battle before the play starts, and one of his daughters Antigone, ends up hanging herself because
“These deeds must not be thought after these ways; so, it will make us mad” (2.2.34). The more they thought about the murder, the more things they over thought which ultimately led them both to their demise. The amount of guilt that oppressed Macbeth after this murder was huge. “Will all of Neptune’s ocean wash this blood clean from my hand?” (2.2.61). This shows that no matter what Macbeth does, he has to live with the fact that he has killed a person for the rest of his life.
This shows just how real and how traumatizing these events can be. However, the connection between the two highlights the fact that war leads to poverty as well as PTSD. Throughout every major war, once the soldiers have returned it has been increasingly hard for them to start their life
