Not many people would be brave enough to tell their own stories of the trials and tribulations that is associated with drug abuse but he told his story without holding anything back. As Tim Gunn states “There’s nothing harder than living life as someone you are not, even if being what you are is very hard.” (316) The reality of drug addiction is that you do not live life as who you are but instead as a slave to the drugs that your consuming. Meth addiction is a horrible and very terrifying illness but to go through it feeling all alone is even worse.

This shows that Perry had some issues with his father, which could have affected his personality later on, as one needs to feel the love of a parent. Water is a scarce resource; by using "wasted water" this may imply that Perry's love lasts only for a certain amount of time. Another simile used in the novel was ‘white as a ghost’, which provides a chilling tone. Additionally it reveals Perry's delicate side, because ‘white’ has innocent and pure connotations while ghost has frightening connotations. The use of the simile plays a big role in this as it emphasizes the great amount of fear Perry endured while committing the
Arthur Dimmesdale from The Scarlet Letter however, set a more destructive path for himself. Although his pride did affect Hester Prynne and his daughter Pearl, It still was more about him torturing himself instead of admitting and confessing to what he did wrong and relieving himself of that guilt and pain. Instead he chose to live with the knowledge that he did all of this because he was so proud of his status in his community as the minister and didn't want to lose that respect everybody had him. The reason he didn’t tell the truth about the adultery was because of this very pride and he admits it. But, not to suggest more obvious reasons, it may be that they are kept silent by the very constitution of their nature...guilty as they may be, retaining, nevertheless, a zeal for God’s glory and man’s welfare, they shrink from displaying themselves black and filthy in the view of men...So, to their own unutterable torment, they go about among their fellow-creatures, looking pure as new-fallen snow; while their hearts are all speckled and spotted with iniquity of which they cannot rid themselves.
People use these addictions to escape the world they live in, similarly to the way Case has a dependency on drugs. This type of dependency is usually started because people have the feeling of emptiness and are struggling with this feeling, looking for an easy way to feel better. Case was given the opportunity to escape his addiction, but instead Case states, “Thanks, but I was enjoying that dependency” (45). He enjoyed his dependency on drugs and alcohol because it was a form of an escape from his body, a chance to forget about his body slowly deteriorating. As Case gradually weakens he continues to abuse stimulants to help with the loss of energy.
Typically, those who choose to remain ignorant will accomplish extremely little in their lifetime due to their refusal to accept reality. In the wise words of Martin Luther King Jr., “nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance...” Cypher’s decision to choose ignorance cost him his life, and while it is arguable that Neo’s life is in greater danger to due his rebellion, it is better to acknowledge what
Before the incident he was considered a very ethical man, smart, efficient worker, and creditworthy. However, afterwards, it was said that he was impatient, childish, drifting off, and unfitting of going to work ever again, it is said that his friends said he was,”No longer Gage.” Phineas P. Gage never lived another normal day after the accident. The damage in which he sustained in his left, and right, frontal lobe located in front of the brain, affected a lot of his behavior.

After watching Myrtle get hit by a car, Wilson spirals into a depression fueled by madness, and although he eventually killed Gatsby out of revenge, George Wilson remains on of the more moral characters in Fitzgerald’s work. Wilson lived his life as a man of God, holding onto his values above all else, and when those morals failed him, he lost all sense of who he was. Those who hold a high standard of morals, such as George Wilson, often have more to lose, and as a result don’t handle tragedy well. Moral individuals in the lower classes have less to fall back on, and therefore more to lose. This can often lead to them not handling tragedy well, because they feel as though their morals have failed them.
Depression is a topic that it’s not mentioned very often, as someone could feel embarrassed or afraid of other people’s comments about them.

Have you ever beat yourselves up because you are not doing as good as others are?
