“I couldn't possibly tell anyone the truth: how worthless and ugly Niang made me feel most of the time…” (54). It is important because it supports the belief that Adeline feels despised by her family. This proves that Niang is seriously affecting her stepdaughter's feelings. Adeline is treated unfairly by her family, especially by her parents. In Chinese Cinderella, Adeline Yen Mah’s story about her childhood experiences, she suffered and she wasn't happy, but she always knew things would get better someday.

Participants in my bereavement support group are often offended and outraged by the so- called insensitive things that people say to the bereaved. One lady was so upset because somebody told her that she could still find a new husband, as she was still young. Another lady was outraged because her decision to keep the ashes of her husband on the coffee table in the house was considered by others as, disgusting There is a list of things that one should not say to the bereaved such as, “He is in a better place,” (It is a cliché),“It was God’s will,” (You don’t know that),“I know exactly how you feel,”(You have no clue) “Thank God you have other children.”(Condescending). While you can make sure that you don’t say these things to a bereaved, what
As Julian expected, the boy’s mother grows irate and strikes Julian’s mother in rage. Following this, Julian turns on his distressed mother, ridiculing her actions and justifying those of the young boy’s mother. Eventually, Julian’s mother - who had previous health complications - succumbs to her injuries, thrusting Julian into grief, guilt, and utter hopelessness. O’Connor’s use of rhetorical devices illustrates the conflicting and evolving attitude with which Julian views his mother. O’Connor’s use of imagery captures the disdain with which Julian views his life circumstances, the infatuation Julian has with seeing his mother agitated and remorseful, and the contrasting culpability he feels when his mother reaches her twisted and untimely fate.
Blanche’s anger of being lonely results in her envious feelings towards her sister, so she plans to devastate her sister’s life and this creates the idea of sibling rivalry ( DiGaetani 69).

Moreover, Blanche insists on describing Stanley with rough descriptions in front of her sister, she told Stella “you are married to a madman”( Williams 64). In addition, she described Stanley as being a “ Pig”.
They both have dissimilar reasons for their depression, but have a single way of coping with it. Suzy’s depression is ignited by the fact her stern, cheat of a mother is having an affair with Mr. Fox—who has no acknowledgement of what could happen to others involved. Her mom’s uncaring tone used when hollering through the megaphone when it was time to eat and the book Suzy found, “The Very Troubled Child,” are clues to why she is uninterested in her mother; on top of it all, her father’s distance is what makes Suzy feel unwanted and isolated. Sam on the other hand is desolate, orphaned, and restrained. His parents are deceased and he travels from one home to another with only the pride of being a khaki scout, but not even that is enough to make him happy.
I hated when my younger sister disrespected my parents. I hated when my older sister’s “so -called” friends made her feel inferior and left her out of everything. I hate when my family are divided by anger or having a huge fight. There are many things I hate, but what I hate the most is the all the hate in the world. It sounds crazy to say that I hate all the hate in today’s world, but I have a lot reasons to feel this way.
