I didn’t feel anything different, I just felt angrier. One day as I sat down and talked with one of my aunts, she told me, “Some things happen for a reason.” I told myself that I wasn’t going to allow the absence of my father prevent me from getting father in life. Many always thought that I was just this angry little girl, but they never sat down and asked me why I felt so angry inside.

Another example of how lying is okay as long as you get away with it in The Crucible, is when Elizabeth lies to Danforth about Abigail and Proctor's affair. “To your own knowledge, has John Proctor ever committed the crime of lechery?
I didn’t tell anyone for a while. Not my teachers, siblings, or even my family. My parents still don’t even know. My other friends at that time never really understood that I was getting bullied but that’s because I didn’t tell them either. It was really complicated because whenever someone saw that I was down and they asked if anything was wrong, I would act like nothing had happened the rest of the day but inside, only I knew that I was being bullied in the sixth grade.
I don 't know if she knew how much that affected me, but because of those few words I was so self-conscious I never cut my hair short, or let anyone see my scars even if they asked.
