In other words, I do not self-disclose, because I do not want people to form an opinion about my feelings, thoughts, and experiences. For instance, I was talking to my friend one day, she asked me a question and I gave her my response. Then she repeated my response and asked her mother if she agreed with me or not. That moment was unsettling, because I felt like she was belittling my thoughts and feelings about the topic. Furthermore, I did not agree or appreciate with her repeating my words to allow someone else to judge and validate how I felt about
Affection is the basic need of people to feel accepted and cared for by others and in romantic relationships, the need to feel loved. According to the textbook, absence of affection can reflect decreased emotional closeness and propel a relationship towards de-escalation. I had struggles in my relationship with affection because I would often show it a lot and my partner would never reciprocate; she would show me affection when we were alone but never when we were with others. This made me question many things about our relationship like, was she embarrassed by me? Or was I doing something wrong?
Most people would think this, but characters in the book thought differently. They thought that they could avoid all feeling toward another person.

Gatsby always had a loving feeling for Daisy, even though she is in a marriage.
“It's an encouraging trend, given that research shows many people with mental health conditions don't seek treatment due to fear of shame or judgment.” I strongly believe that this statement is true. Many are terrified of what others think of them, so they hide their feelings. So many don’t want to talk about what is going on in their mind. However, Demi Lovato says she, “personally finds that talking about what's going on in her mind gives her the perspective she needs, but it takes work and time to uncover what works best for each individual.” I truly believe this, because when I need someone to talk to, I talk to my best friend. She is always there for me, and she understands my problems.
Because of Dee’s new persona, Wangero, was not accepted by her family, this caused her to become angered and defensive. Mama and Maggie do not like this new Wangero person. Since Dee family is not reacting well to the new her, this could be bad news for her mental health. Oswalt says that the way your parents and family react to the new you can affect the outcome of an identity crisis. Usually, if the parents become angered or react negatively to the final result of the crisis them it will output a worse result than if they would have been more calm and supportive (Oswalt).
It 's at this point, where the conflict between real intimacy and wishful thinking comes, that many of us notice everything isn 't what it used to be. You might be thinking that this is the beginning of the end, Schnarch says it 's often when things finally start to go right. It means marriage is beginning the relentless process of doing what it 's supposed to do, nudging us away from the unrealistic romance and forcing us to figure out who we are as individuals. Real intimacy is frightening. It requires a kind of openness, honesty and self-respect that most of us aren 't used to.
Love is an esoteric word, but one that people also use to mean all sorts of off-hand things.” While Morrie and Betty discuss their marriage they reiterate that it was not smooth sailing, and that they had times where they were angry at one another. Though, they stayed the course saying, “Just don’t let every complaint turn to anger. Tolerance and respect.” This couple shows that love can last forever, and through caring for one another they have found that they wouldn’t want to spend their life with anyone else. The concept behind ever-lasting love is complex; however, understanding what love is through real-life relationships can lead to the solution of obtaining long-lasting love. Millay was mistaken when she described love as a pretense, and was not willing to fight for her love.
Her actions do not define her and her family acknowledges that when others choose not to because they know that she does not understand herself why she acts on impulse.

Rose realized that she was causing more and more harm to those who loved her unconditionally.
When I do not speak up for my action, I felt inferiority by the duo as the nurse would be grading me for my posting for the rest of the weeks. In this case, initially, I chose avoidance and accommodating approach in handling the situation. Avoidance approach will allow me to stay away from further disagreement which might affect the relationship between the nurse and me. It might also hinder our teamwork process if the issue is being pursued. But when an issue is avoided, it will remain unsolved.
