We feel betrayed, unsafe, and extremely hurt to the point we cannot associate ourselves with them. Mark Haddon’s novel The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time demonstrates this concept. Christopher entrusts his father with all his heart until the day he finds out his father’s secret; from this day on Christopher no longer relies on his father.
In an attempt to put an end to Wayne isolating himself, those surrounding him attempt to persuade him to claim his position at the head of his father’s company, as they feel it is his duty to maintain it. He, however feels he needs more time to heal from his loss, which prompts him to begin traveling all over the world in search of answers.

Even after Jack’s death the theme of ‘being of like mind’ is continued when Jack’s father is angered by his sons desire to be buried on Brokeback Mountain rather than at home. The audience is left with the feeling that Jack’s desire to get away from home and its rigid conventions is what ultimately costs him his life. Ennis however gives the impression that he can’t get away from home, which somehow represents safety and contradictorily acceptance. This then leads to the conclusion that to stay at home, is to be accepted and to be safe, to leave home is linked with the dangers of
