I found myself trying to determine which theory would be best to use to confront those certain issues. While reading about Adlerian Therapy I could not help thinking about the relationship I had, and still have, with my mother. Because of our harrowing kinship I have acquired some very dysfunctional beliefs, thoughts, and subconscious behaviors. My mother used to always say, “I am the most honest person you will ever meet.” A rather bold statement from someone whose behavior was everything but honest. My mother’s infidelity lead to the demise of my parent’s marriage.
There’s no such thing as the absolute truth on any question.” This quote from Stephen Law really encompasses the subject matter in the chapter “Into the Lair of the Relativist” in the book Philosophy Gym. He also talks about the matter of relativism and tries to answer the question, “Is there such a thing as an absolute truth?” In a quest to answer this question, the author explains interesting, boring, moral, and conceptual relativism, and how they differ. Stephen Law also goes into depth about relativists vs. those who oppose relativism, and how
The personal narrative of this story is told through the major character, Maxine Hong Kingston. She is reflecting back on her childhood which establishes some credibility. Throughout the passage, readers see that Kingston repeatedly blames her mother for her speaking difficulties when all her mother wanted was for Kingston to be able to speak multiple languages freely without being “tongue tied.” The accusations that Kingston repeatedly places on her mother are ironic because while Kingston is writing about how she is unable to communicate, readers see that she is very capable of expressing herself through her
She acted unkind to her mother when she saw this and asked why she was doing this. When the mother confessed what she has done the elder daughter had to face up to the abuse she has put her mother through. Even though the daughter was being unruly and cruel the mother stood proud and strong and did what was needed to provide and feed her children. In conclusion, I believe this is a message of hope and love, not of poverty. The two daughters will one day be mothers, if they are lucky and might have to sacrifice life their mother has.

The Miracle Worker: the struggles: from hardships to friendships The storyteller uses the character archetype, a mentor, to reveal how she taught a little girl to communicate with her family because we as humans help people who need it and will do anything to help them because we want the parents to know what she wants without guessing. First of all , How Annie is a mentor because she taught Helen how to spell words out with her fingers. Helen can’t talk, so they don’t understand what she is trying to say (acts out, violent) Annie helped Helen to spell by using her fingers/palm as a language. This ties back to the theme because that is the only way she could learn. When Annie Sullivan came to the house she didn’t know what to expect.
They spoke about how forgiving their mother’s shortcomings is something they have to continually do. The chapter dedicates a short section to forgiving as it is an essential part of a daughter reconnecting with their deceased mothers in the present. In Volver, while she still believes her mother is dead, Raimunda smells the passing of gas and it reminds her so strongly of her mother that she is overwhelmed with emotion. This is an example of how Raimunda has internalized her connection with Irene. Upon understanding Irene is not actually dead, she is
Later during the play when she has a conversation with Tom, she comes to realise that she has to cope with the loss of her son and reconcile with everyone around her, tom helps her with this during the play they both participate in and the reconciling process occurs. To use of short language and metaphors within this ending, suggests to the audience that Coral had finally overcome the grief of losing her son and accepts his death, this leads to her reconciling with Roy.

This is because as a child she lived through poverty and now poverty is her biggest fear. She has a lack of consideration for others, and she is extremely quick to judge.

One could believe that this story is not about Dee/Wagnero coming home to visit but about Maggie who was the girl throughout the story who seemed humble and was thankful for just being able to be with her Momma. “Everyday Use” shows many different sides of the story from Momma point of view. It shows the love and fear a mother has the unconditional love for their child and always supporting them through any of their decisions or the fear of change that their child maybe going through. Alice Walker wrote this to inform her audience about a mother who has unconditional love for their children even if they do not appreciate or appreciates what the mother does for
